"I didn't shed a tear until I saw you , made my family so very proud and it sounded so amazing! My Husband told me that you were brilliant from start to finish and we especially appreciate you piping us out of the church when we left.As soon as I get our photos and even our video I be more than happy to share them with you. If there is anything else we can do please ask. Honestly thank you so much. "- Suzanne Mr and Mrs Blackburn

'I just wanted to say a massive thank-you for playing at our wedding - I was so overwhelmed to see you playing outside the church when I arrived - it was truly amazing. All of our guests commented on how wonderful you were as well, so thank you so much, you really made our wedding extra special!! '- Suzanne Whittingham

''Thank you once again for making our Regimental Dinner a ‘little bit special’. I think everyone appreciated your piping. I was particularly moved by your Gaelic salute when taking a drink at the top table.' - Mike (Chetwynd Barracks)

'Sorry it has taken so long to THANK YOU so very much for making our day so very special.You did more than we had expected and cant thank you enough,you made our day that extra special and our friends and family have said how wonder full you were. So thanks again' - Maxine Sredojevic

'Now everything has settled after the wedding I just wanted to say a huge thank you for performing at Orla’s and Jamie’s wedding. It made the day extra special and added a magical touch to the proceedings. Everyone enjoyed your playing so much, it even made Jamie’s Mum cry. "Thank you very much also for being so kind and friendly to everyone, we really appreciated it." - Heike Sheppard

"What a fantastic day. Here we are four days and still buzzing. It was just brilliant and your piping was “as it said on the tin”….rousing. You were excellent and all our guests were just taken aback and extremely complimentary about your professionalism and kind demeanor. We had a great time at Warwick Races, that too was just a great night. All the guests (apart from 3, me included) managed to win some money so that was added bonus. Jenny will never forget walking down the aisle to Flower of Scotland and I’ll never forget the same rendition as we made our entrance into the Wedding Breakfast. So thank you John, if you ever need a recommendation just point them our way." - John Frame

    John piped for my dad’s funeral on 19th november – The Flower of Scotland – it was oh so dignified and made his send-off very special. thank you John for helping us all to remember dad’s Scots connection and his enjoyment of rugby especially his appreciation of his grandsons’ rugby playing, a lovely tribute to a lovely father and grandfather.
