WHAT PEOPLE SAY
We had Corey as our contact and Piper. She was so responsive and the price was extremely reasonable. Corey was so flexible as we were getting married on Martha's Vineyard!!!! Her outfit was beautiful and her playing of the bagpipes was nothing [short of] phenomenal!!! Corey played outside the Edgartown Lighthouse, inside of it, and finally on top of the lighthouse. It was just beautiful! Corey also took pics with all of us who wanted to have a photograph. She also played us going in at the Black Dog Tavern. We had such a great time, we invited her to stay for dinner and she obliged!! What a wonderful experience we had. Thank you so much for your phenomenal playing of the bagpipes on our special day!!!

I hired two pipers and a drummer for my wedding day. Coreyanne was so professional, helpful, and organized. This was a Covid wedding that was postponed and they were so lovely and patient as the date changed 1...2...3 times! At the wedding they were impressive and beautiful and in the end I am so happy to have been lucky enough to [have them] play me down the aisle. Thank you!!!!
