George played for my father's funeral, and his playing was absolutely beautiful. He was a pleasure to work with, and worked with me to understand what my family wanted for the service. After the service finished, my entire family only had compliments for the next few days on how wonderful the music was. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a piper.
George did a great job. It was just right and he gave us a lovely cd. Very pleased. He arrived early and played several songs appropriate to the occasion.
I was not there to see George perform, but my aunt was and she said he did a fantastic job! It was my mom’s 90 birthday. His performance made her cry. I would recommend Mr. Balderose to anyone wanting a very professional bagpiper.
George Balderose played for my dads funeral service and It was a wonderful experience.
Response from Bagpiper George Balderose:
Thanks for your kind and thoughtful review regarding my playing the pips for Mr. Falconer's funeral today!
I'll be sending you a CD, entitled "Confluence" of me playing the pipes with an organist, as well as a condolence letter listing the tunes I played at your father's funeral today. All the Best, George
George was amazing. He needed very little direction other than where we were walking. He is extremely professional. My family is very happy with the decision to choose him. He made the ceremony and cocktail hour perfect and stress free.
George was exactly what we wanted. Professional, stylish, punctual and a big hits with all of the guests of our wedding. Highly recommend.
It was a wonderful experience and the family of the deceased were very happy to have George Balderose play for them.
