WeddingReviewed on November 11, 2022From Piermont, NY

Al was on time and played beautifully for our wedding!! We were so happy that he came early and was able to be in our pictures as well!

FuneralReviewed on September 24, 2022From Montclair, NJ

We hired The Royal Piper (Al) to play at my father's funeral. My father was 94, a British Citizen and was in the Royal Navy, he loved the Bagpipes. The Royal Piper provided quite the sendoff. He was professional and the Pipes sounded awesome, this put a smile on everyone's face even during such a sad event. This was a memorable sendoff for a wonderful father.

We loved working with the Royal Piper! If you are looking for a professional Piper to work with look no further! Al is kind and SO easy to work with. His performance was exactly what we asked for. As a professional event planner I will be hiring him again when we need a Piper!
