I booked Brodie for my dad’s funeral. Dad was a Scots man who fought in WW2 so the sound of the pipes at his funeral was awesome. He would have been so proud. Brodie had no problem with any of the songs I requested and kept in touch with me prior to the day. He was reliable and professional. The whole booking experience was trouble free and I was so glad I booked him. It made all the difference. Thank you.
