Greetings Mr. MacGregor!
I meant to send this message sooner, but after Dad's funeral my Mom became ill and passed away on July 27th. So, life has been rather hectic for me. But I wanted to let you know how wonderful your music was at dad's funeral. We received many compliments on that day, and again at mom's funeral of how much your bag pipes were enjoyed. Dad would have been more than pleased too . God Bless you for your service to our family-especially on such short notice.
Sincerely, B. H., Long Lake, Wisconsin
Gregor- Thanks so much for playing the bagpipes at our father’s funeral. He was very proud of his Celtic heritage and would have enjoyed hearing the pipes played so beautifully just for him. Thanks.

I want to thank you so much for playing this past Saturday at the memorial for my husband in Boyne City. You did such a great job; everyone is still talking about it. It is just what he had requested, and I thank you for making it possible.

I just wanted to send you a note real quick. I wanted to thank you for Saturday. We had so many compliments on your playing; it was one of the highlights of the day. Everything went smoothly with the line-up of us girls and coming in. ... I am happy that we had the opportunity to have you play at our wedding. Thank you for contributing to our special day.

“As I was getting dressed, I heard Mr. MacGregor’s bagpipes out in the cold January air setting the scene as people began arriving for our wedding. His choice of music was festive and calming as it lilted into the church ... I could not wait to meet him face to face. When he piped my father and me down the aisle, his clear notes brought emotion to the faces of all, and inspired me to stand tall and proud. As he piped my husband and me out of the church, and then into our reception, his melodies echoed our happiness and excitement. Mr. MacGregor was professional, on time, always in place before I could wonder where he was, and has an endless choice of amazing music and sounds from his various instruments. I dare say, he was the best dressed of all of us, impeccable in his appearance. Mr. MacGregor was the talk of the ceremony and the reception and it was well deserved!”
Thank you for your excellent performance on October 20th. I felt a little vulnerable hiring a piper without the benefit of hearing you beforehand. Considering the years of practice that are required before a piper becomes competent, we had no way of knowing your capability. Well........we were more than pleased with your playing. I would recommend you anytime.
Again, thank you.”

“Dear Mr. MacGregor;
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the very memorable part you played in the wedding of my daughter and son-in-law at the Mission Point gazebo on Mackinac Island. I was a bit surprised when the bridal couple announced they wanted you to provide the music at their wedding, only because I had never heard a piper at a wedding before. However, they made an excellent decision and we could not have had a better musical program at the wedding. Many of our guests commented on the music and were absolutely delighted. Your participation and music selection created a most memorable experience for our guests and most certainly for the bridal couple.
I wanted to add that your “physical placement” beside the gazebo was perfect as well. We could easily see you and enjoy the music, yet you were in just the right place so as to not draw attention away from the bride and groom. Needless to say, you “know how to perform” and are a true professional.
I would be amiss if I didn’t mention the ease we had in working with you prior to the wedding. Living many hundreds of miles apart could have made it difficult to plan the musical portion of the wedding. However, you made every step of the planning extremely easy. You answered every e-mail and call promptly and offered many suggestions outside the music aspect. Having preformed at this location and being the professional you are, helped us a great deal, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
If you ever want to use us as a referral, we would be delighted. I may be contacted via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Again, thank you!”
“We made the best choice with our bagpiper. He made an already wonderful day even more special with his amazing skill with the bagpipes. We are so happy we found him, and would highly recommend his services!”
