I am a retired Captain of the Illinois State Police and member of the ISP Pipes and Drums, the oldest state law enforcement pipe band in America. My experience piping ceremonies and funerals is extensive. I have performed solo before three Illinois Governors (Thompson, Quinn, Rauner), twice on the floor of the Illinois House of Representatives, and at the Illinois Supreme Court. My greatest honor, however, was to play for my comrades at cadet graduations, promotions, and funerals for fallen State Troopers and local police officers.
I play Great Highland Bagpipes and "smallpipes." My attire ranges from casual to formal and includes American, Irish, and Scottish tartans.
Couldn’t have been more pleased. Everyone was impressed by his performance and he was gracious enough to let people photograph him.
Response from Piper Steven:
Thank you for your kind words and for having me play for your family!
