About
I am Michael Patrick Ryan, The Florida Bagpiper, from Punta Gorda, FL and I'd love to make your gathering special! I have been a professional Bagpiper for 30 years. I am your Wedding Bagpiper, Party Bagpiper, Funeral Bagpiper, Golf Outing Bagpiper and Special Event Bagpiper. I will provide a stirring beginning, a grand entrance and a spectacular finale.

I have been bagpiping professionally for 30 years. I began with the Black Swan Pipe Band in Elkhorn, WI. I have played all over the US and Canada, as well as Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, and Scotland. My approach is elegant, fresh and clean. I play from the heart.

During my 30 year career I have had the opportunity to pipe for a variety of people, corporations, functions, and events. The following are some of the venues I have performed for:

The Minnesota Twins

Michael is very professional and talented. What we asked him to do was highly difficult, and yet, he performed at a level that exceeded our expectations. His performance at our memorial service was the highlight of our event. In just a few short minutes, he created a memory for our family that will last a lifetime.

I had the great pleasure of hiring Michael R. for my daughters wedding. He arrived early and was kind, polite, and energetic with my guests. The music was beautiful and he was very professional throughout the time he was at the wedding. I highly recommend you hire him for whatever event you're hosting. He's an absolute joy.

I hired Michael for my father's 85th bday. He was absolutely brilliant!!! Professional, prompt extremely talented and a very charming Irishman. My family and especially my dad LOVED the show! Michael not only plays the bagpipes beautifully but he tells jokes and stories. He gave a performance beyond my expectation! I wanted to give my dad a gift he would always remember, because he has been such a loving, kind father. Michael did that and then some! If you have any type of event, whether you're Irish or not, you will be pleased beyond words. Now I just need to hint to my family about my bday in May! God bless you Michael!??
