“Dave was fantastic! He called me two days before the event just to say hello and to iron out bits and pieces. I wanted him to lead my wedding procession down the street from the church to the reception - well he did a lot more than that ... he managed to stop traffic! We had bus drivers stopping and waving! People were hanging out of windows to take photos - he probably ended up on instagram! He was on time and so friendly! He was so professional! As the bride I had a lot going on but he got on with the job and I didn’t feel like it he needed to be shown what to do. His playing was fantastic and I can’t thank him enough. Great choice. ”


“Dave did a great job on our wedding day - he was there to ‘pipe’ us into the venue and then to play for some time during the drinks reception. The selection of melodies was good and played a good variety. Dave went above and beyond and ended up staying on a little to pipe us in for the wedding breakfast.”


“Dave not only looked the part, he played really well. He was very flexible with the arrangements and made things flow smoothly. I would certainly use Dave again if the occasion arose. Thanks "...........”


“We wanted a bagpiper to follow from our wedding ceremony to the event venue. Dave arrived on time, provided a great addition to our wedding day and I would have no recommendation in recommending him for any such event.”


“Dave Brooks lent dignity & quality to a family funeral. He was courteous, professional & his playing was exemplary. Our guests told us they were impressed with his playing & thought it also brought poignancy & pleasure making the event memorable. I would heartily recommend Dave to anyone else looking for a piper.”
