I work for Wilhelms Portland Memorial and we hired John to play at our annual Memorial Day Celebration. He was flexible, adaptable and accommodating during the hiring process. Pricing was VERY reasonable. During the Celebration, John's traditional attire alone was a show stopper! Then he played his pipes. Everyone with in earshot had goosebumps. He is talented, reverent, respectful, and all around pleasure to work with! He is now our only Piper we recommend and we look forward to many years of collaboration. I 💯 percent recommend him for all occasions. Funerals, birthdays, festivals, you name it, he can do it! - Laura Marriott
