About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

The Great Highland Bagpipes are sure to pull the heartstrings and make your event even more memorable. Mr. MacKenzie has played for clients at special events throughout the Southeast US and Caribbean Islands for over 25 years. He will share the moving sound of the bagpipes with professionalism, dependability, and thoughtfulness. Please make sure to listen to the audio samples and see a list of musical selections. You will also see a solid history of superior feedback from prior clients so you may schedule your event with confidence. Uniform: Full Formal Attire with Dress Kilt (Royal Regiment of Scotland, MacKenzie, or Black Stewart Tartans) and Jacket. Weddings and Anniversary Celebrations: Bagpipes have added a distinctive character to weddings for centuries. They may be played before, during, or after the ceremony. As a suggestion, the processional and recessional are both appropriate times for the bagpipes. Being piped into the reception can be a great way to make a "grand entrance" as well. The Celtic Fiddle, featuring heart-moving Celtic solos, is particularly suitable for intimate indoor venues and is a perfect complement to the stark sounds of the bagpipes. Funerals and Memorial Services: The bagpipes and/or fiddle are a beautiful and fitting way to help honor and celebrate the life of a family member or friend. I have a medley of moving Scottish and Irish tunes that are appropriate for any funeral or memorial service. As a suggestion, playing "Amazing Grace" or another selection stationary at the conclusion of the service and then "Going Home" as I march into the distance provides a quite moving and memorable effect. Experience: Hundreds of Weddings Hundreds of Memorial Services St. Patrick's Events Anniversary Parties Graduation Parties Fox Hunts Blessing of the Fleet Ceremonies St. Andrews Day Celebrations Pro-Am Golf Tournaments

CelebrationReviewed on October 25, 2015From Gainesville, FL

Joseph MacKenzie was excellent. His daughter performed on the violin also and was amazing. The combination was absolutely perfect for a Celebration of Life event!
