VOTED 2014 AND 2018 BEST CEREMONY MUSIC BY TAMPA A-LIST
Joyful Noise Bagpiping has been proud to perform and service Central Florida. Robert Larcom, Owner and Musician based out of Dunedin, prides himself on quality music and a unque memory to last a lifetime! If it's a memorial service for a loved one, birthday or a special surprise bagpipes are a perfect addition! With the newest addition of Scottish Small Bagpipes, Robert can provide soft music before the event or during a cocktail hour. Of course the most requested is the standard Great Highland Bagpipes which is the most recognizable sound there is.
Robert played at the Church upon my processional with my father then again as my husband and I exited the Church. He also played a nice variety as our guests entered our reception later that evening at the Yacht Club. He was wonderful! All week long after our wedding, our guests told us what a nice touch the Bagpipes were, and how much they enjoyed listening to Robert play! What a treat! Bagpipes have always been important in my family, yet they were typically played at funerals, so it was nice to have Robert perform at a joyous ceremony like our wedding! He created lasting memories for us and we cannot wait to relive it again in our wedding video! Thank you, Robert! We highly recommend him to anyone searching for a great bagpipe performance for their event!! Cheers, Erin & Keith Elser
Response from Joyful Noise Bagpiping:
Thank you for having me be apart of your special day!
We hired Robert to play at our wedding, and I am so glad that we found him! From the moment we met him we knew that we wanted him to play for our wedding. He was early for our first meeting, (which I loved) was very personable, very prepared for the meeting, and actually had his bag pipes with him in case we wanted to hear something!! His pricing was fair, he was open to absolutly anything we wanted played, (even though we stayed somewhat traditional) and was willing to learn something if there was enough time. Fast forward to the day of the wedding, and he did such a great job! It was such a special addition to our day, and I am so glad we found him. Highly reccomended!
If you are considering a piper for your next wedding or event then I recommend Joyful Noise Bagpiping. Robert showed up on time, looked great, put up with the delayed start to proceedings, and played the tunes i picked very well indeed. As a Scotsman and having my family over (kilts were swinging) we all appreciated having Robert playing. Remember, a wedding's not a wedding unless you hear the skirl of the pipes. Sláinte!
I booked Joyful Noise for a Veterans Day program at our church. Robert was always quick to respond to my emails, he was prompt for our worship service, and his version of Amazing Grace was touching to our congregation. (He gave our choir a quick lesson about bagpipes and they loved him!)
We were recently married at Andrew's Chapel in Dunedin and Robert played the pipes for our ceremony. It was the most beautiful addition to the ceremony. When my Dad and I walked to the doors and heard the pipes we both lost it! Very professional in his planning, Robert called promptly to discuss timing, songs, attire, and his placement. In addition to the phone calls he was frequently in contact via e-mail. He is definitely a professional and his craft is well tuned. Our guests were all treated to his playing upon arrival and departure from the chapel, as well as the playing during out processionals. If you're looking for a piper, please put yourself in Robert's hands. You won't be disappointed!!!
To start I am extremely critical and rarely have zero issues with a service that I receive. I expect perfection and wont settle for anything less. Robert's bag piping is perfection. He was easily contacted, prompt in response, arrived on time, looked amazing in kilt and form. The music was beautiful and just has I had asked and planned for. He has great advice on song selections and is flexible. He didn't miss a beat and performed perfectly. I feel his service is very reasonable and well worth the money for piece of mind. If you use him you will be very satisfied and will have one less thing to worry about for your big event. Will use him again.
Robert helped me with some tunes at a wedding. Very professional and did what he said he was going to do, on time. Would use him again for sure.
Joyful Noise Bagpiping for our daughters wedding made it an experience we will never forget. Robert was dressed so handsomely that he almost took away from the bride. The music was excellent and everyone commented on how it added to the service.
I do not articulate well but if you are considering someone to play bagtpipes, he is the best and you will never be disapointed. We look forward to using him for other events in the future.
Robert performed at our wedding on OCt. 20, 2012 and added that extra special touch to the ceremony for which we were looking. He was sharp in his full outfit and did a great job before, during, and after the ceremony. He even stayed after his time was done to take pictures with us. Great communication and customer service! Would definitely recommend his services to others!
Price Range: $160 and up
