Wayne came for my dad’s 84th birthday party. He asked requests ahead of time & also at the event. He explained some history of piping & of his kilt. Wayne played our requests and even some for the kids. I have already recommended him to my friends. My dad said this was his best birthday ever - so far. Bless you, Wayne. It was fabulous.
