We booked Tony to play as our wedding guests arrived and at our drinks reception and he did not disappoint! He looked and sounded amazing and was a very kind and lovely man. All of our guests absolutely loved it and it certainly added something extra special to our day, thank you so much Tony! If you’re considering a bagpiper for your own special event, I would absolutely go for it and highly recommend Tony!

I have known Tony for many years and he is a first class Piper and entertainer with the Pipes. he is as meticulous about his appearance as he is about his music. I have also had the pleasure on a number of occasions to work with Tony, and always find him very reliable and extremely professional.
