Colorado is the nation’s highlands: imagine castles, bagpipes, kilts, “Scotland The Brave” and “Oh, Danny Boy”. Is this your heritage? No other instrument pays tribute to it, or adds to the excitement and pageantry of a wedding, party or special event like the Great Highland Bagpipes.
Based in Denver, but serving Colorado’s Front Range and neighboring Western States, Randy Arent will help you plan the musical selections for your special occasion. By incorporating the power and grandeur of the Great Highland Bagpipes your event will be one that is as unique and distinctive as you deserve it to be.
Really added to the event
I hired Denver Bag Piper for a performance for an educational event for our school. He showed up on time, delivered a beautiful performance with bag pipes and was very professional. I will tell other people about this and when in need of this type of performance. I will hire him.
Played Danny Boy and Amazing Grace at my Grandfathers Memorial Service, both songs were out of tune and he didn't even complete Danny Boy. Said his bagpipe was out of tune. Told me this only happened once before. We hired him for a service and he told me he would be honored to be apart of my Grandfathers service. Should of just had the funeral home play a nice recorded version of the bagpipes. Didn't let it ruin the beautiful service to honor my Grandpa, but I hope this Never happens at anyone else's special occasion! He never apologized once, just said he was embarrassed and he was very defensive.
Response from Denver Bagpiper:
It's embarrassing when problems affect a performance. Rectified the problem. Apologized profusely. Offered a total refund, which was refused.
Randy did a fabulous job! He was on time and played our requests beautifully. We plan on hiring him for our next graduation party.
Also, It was very easy using Gig Salad.
Randy was absolutely wonderful! He created a most memorable part of the ceremony that will be remembered by all who were there forever!
Everything went just perfect.
Randy showed up on time, did exactly what we asked. Couldn't of asked for more.
Randy was so easy to work with - he performed all of our requests and even drove through lots of snow to arrive right on time! He was the highlight of our event, thanks.
Price Range: $200-$500
I'll arrive about 30 minutes early for your event. You'll know I'm there, bagpipes aren't subtle. I'm often asked to play an entire wedding ceremony; the prelude, processional where each group; the groom, attendants and bride has their own tune, an interlude for a candle/sand/ hand binding ceremony if that's part of the plan, the recessional and for a time afterwards to fill in that kind of awkward few moments when guests aren't quite certain of what happens next. Of course we can tailor the tune selections. Please visit my web site to listen to a few tunes I've posted there. If you have a special request be sure to let me know. Your deposit secures the date on my calendar, the balance is due on or prior to the date.
