Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on November 12, 2023From Lewes, DE

Robert is a professional. He listened to what we wanted and made some suggestions that were far better than our original plan. He demonstrated flexibility as the event went on. On his own initiative, he worked with the sound engineer for the large band, that would be playing later in the evening, to diffuse the point source of his bagpipe so that the sound was more even for all of the guests to enjoy. We look forward to engaging him another time.

Robert Mitchell did an outstanding job from booking to performing at my uncle's memorial at Arlington National Cematary. It was a very moving performance and made the service very memorable. Thank you

Robert Mitchell has given my family a priceless gift. At the end of my Dad's celebration of life, his rendition of Amazing Grace brought tears to our eyes and filled our hearts with joy. He played another piece or two as people came out of the church, and the entire crowd was mesmerized. Thank you, thank you, Mr. Mitchell!!

Robert is a very nice man who made a point of coming early to get the lay of the land and practice, he was very professional.

Thank you for your Review. When a bagpiper arrives at a dinner, wedding, or even a funeral it is necessary to play the instrument for a few minutes beforehand to stabilize the 4 reeds. Each reed will have its own temperature and moisture level needed for optimum sound. This blowing in period is necessary for the very best sound and is often mistaken for "practice". I practice daily at home, and always tune my instrument in order to deliver the very best sound possible. Robert Mitchell

Robert was very professional and accommodating. He performed at my CEO's retirement party and was a huge hit with the entire group.

Mr. Mitchell performed at my stepfather's funeral. He was quick to respond to messages and easy to work with. He is very talented and professional. I can't recommend him enough.

Mr. Mitchell was fantastic to work with and wonderful to have as a part of our Wedding Day. We would highly recommend him! His communication beforehand was top notch as we planned out our ceremony / evening and his playing was incredible. We couldn’t have been happier!

Robert was perfect for our event.

FuneralReviewed on July 11, 2022From Frederick, MD

Robert was a delight to work with, and his talent as a musician are first rate. He played everything we asked, and his music was a beautiful accompaniment to my mothers services. Robert had a long day with us, and I am embarrassed I didn’t get a chance to tell him how much I, and everyone in attendance, loved his music. We couldn’t have asked for a better bagpiper, a better human at the service. Thank you Robert.

Patti, I love your Review. I am putting this on my website. The service went so well and was extremely well organized. Thank you so much, Robert Mitchell

FuneralReviewed on June 4, 2022From Quantico, VA

Robert did an awesome job at my father's funeral. His choice of music was spot on and he coordinated with the staff at Quantico to ensure the whole event came off perfectly. Thanks Robert!

CelebrationReviewed on December 2, 2021From Leesburg, VA

He was very professional, and played beautifully for our moms funeral, everyone was satisfied with his performance. It was definitely shorter then I expected. I thought he would’ve played a little longer of amazing grace, but its fine no big deal. He definitely gave a great experience to honor our mom!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on April 21, 2013From Purcellville, VA

Robert was a fantastic addition to our wedding, and added a unique element that will absolutely be remembered by the attendees. He was a pleasure to work with before the event, played the bagpipes amazingly well (a friend is a series bagpiper and he noted that Robert was very talented), and accommodated music and picture requests thus making sure everyone was thrilled. I would 100% recommend Robert for any bagpipe events! = Andy B.

Roberts music was the perfect touch to a perfect day. Both the highland pipes solo and the trio performing together was awesome. He worked with us and our ceremony plans and provided excellent ideas and professional input. We both highly recommend Robert and his trio!!

Robert Mitchell did a great job! He is very talented with the playing of his Pipes and enjoys sharing his heritge with others and demonstrates it beautifully through his music. I would love to have him back and or recommend him to someone else.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on September 13, 2015From Nottingham, MD

Bob made a Grand Entrance to the party and created an atmosphere that lasted throughout the event! Not only is he talented, his choice of Tunes were spot-on and his persona was exciting. He gave history of the Pipes, noted the different types of Pipes he played and why. He made our event his own... Thank you Robert Mitchell for making my Mother-in-law's 90 Birthday one that all of us will remember for many years to come. Jackie

WeddingReviewed on April 26, 2008From Washington, DC

Bob played the borderpipes at the recessional and processional at our wedding. He accommodated our request for a non-traditional song, When then Saints go Marching In, for the recessional. A couple people said it was the best rendition of the song they had ever heard and many others mentioned how stirring his performance was. Overall Bob's performance really gave our wedding that extra special something we were looking for. I highly recommend Bob for your wedding or special event.

WeddingReviewed on August 2, 2008From Fairfax, VA

Robert Mitchell was very sensitive to our wish for a softer sound in the church and used the border pipes. He was extremely professional, worked well with the organist and pianist, and provided a lovely Irish touch to my daughter's wedding. Afterwards, he played the bagpipes outside while everyone gathered to greet the new couple with bubbles as they hopped into their limo. In addition, he provided a transition to the reception by playing the bagpipes outside the entrance. We are thankful to Robert and heard many positive comments about him from our guests.

WeddingReviewed on October 12, 2009From Harrisburg, PA

Robert Mitchell was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was extremely professional and his playing was outstanding. He arrived early to the ceremony site to warm up dressed in his kilt and traveled about 5 miles away to play at our cocktail hour. We got many compliments about the music both during the ceremony and the cocktail hour. He was extremely approachable and was more than willing to answers any questions that guests posed. I would definitely hire him again for another event.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on May 28, 2017From Washington, DC

Robert played for my mom's 70th Birthday celebration in D.C. I live in Houston and was planning all of this long distance. The plan was to meet at our hotel and do a processional with him leading and playing the pipes to the restaurant. He was so amazing and accommodating. He even hid in the bushes so as not to ruin the surprise! Even more, he did the research as to the best route to the restaurant, he brought his smaller pipes to play inside the restaurant, he played my mom's two favorite songs. He was such a pleasure to work with and he is so so talented! I will never forget the weekend-- when he started playing-- we all got chills. So amazing. Thank you, Robert!

I love leading Processions. It reminds me of playing for Henry the 8th at Revel Grove. MARYLAND RENAISSANCE FESTIVAL.,,THANKS.
