Mr. Hudson was an absolute joy to work with. He went above and beyond to perform at our wedding ceremony and all of our guests loved him. He is a true professional and a wonderful musician! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

My uncle requested the bagpipes for his funeral and no one knew where to begin looking. I put in a generic search and came across The Bash website. I put in a request for quotes from different performers and the family picked J. V. to honor my uncle's wishes. He did an outstanding performance and genuinely looked the part we all thought my uncle would appreciate. He was worth what we paid and more. Thank you from all of us J. V. In my opinion no one could have done it better.

JV Hudson performed beautifully at my Dad's service. He was accommodating when we needed to start the service a little late and played all songs as expected. He is a delightful man and I would recommend him to anyone who wants a truly talented bagpiper.

I hired J.V. to preform at my fathers memorial service. We were blown away by his performance, it was everything we had hoped for! J.V. was excellent at communicating with us leading up to the event. He even waited in the receiving line after the service to offer his condolences. Highly recommend!

Mr Hudson performed taps at our Wreaths Across America Ceremony several veterans and family members told me that when he came walking over the hill playing that they had chills go down the spines. Excellent job

FuneralReviewed on May 10, 2019From Burlington, NC

After the very quick death of my 94 year old father, I wanted to have a bagpiper play at his funeral as well as at the gravesite. To be honest, J.V. Hudson was extremely accommodating and an expert in his musicianship to make this dream happen. I have seen many military funerals when my husband was active duty and I was always moved by the music of bagpipes. The funeral home that was used also was able to get his contact information to be used.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on August 25, 2018From Chapel Hill, NC

Truly a five-star experience - from working with Mr. Hudson, being able to enlist his very unique talent, and enjoying his moving bagpipe music. He interacted very cordially and kindly with our mother who was the celebrant, and all those moments will pause in time in our memories of that evening. Thank you again to Mr. Hudson for sharing with us his breathtaking bagpipe music, and his professionalism and timeliness in all aspects of our event.

FuneralReviewed on May 5, 2018From North Wilkesboro, NC

The family and I, as were those in attendance became so taken by the hymns selection, his timing was uncanny perfect, and the bagpipes were in perfect tune. The memorial service could not have been more perfect than it was due to Mr. Hudson and his pipes. I have already recommended him to two other family members for his services later as members of their family pass. This was also a military flag presentation to the daughter of the deceased with Mr. Hudson leading the military while playing Amazing Grace. Mr. J V Hudson is a "class act" and a professional.
