Hello! I am the Surf City Piper, located in Huntington Beach, CA. I have been a musician all my life and have been playing bagpipes for over 12 years at 50-75 events average each year. I take pride in my playing and the joy I bring to those that hear me play whether it be a memorial, birthday party, school event, pub crawl, wedding, or military, fire, or police event. I know tunes for every occasion and am willing to learn new songs if needed if requested. I am always early to every gig, communicate promptly with all my clients, and go out of my way to make sure that ALL my clients get no less than 125% in regards to my music, work ethic, and customer service.
I have played in commercials, with the Blue Man Group at the Hollywood Bowl, parades, in Scotland, and in competition bands.
I only need enough time to get kilted up and grab my pipes and I'm wherever you need me to be!
Additional Booking Notes
I come to every gig ready to go. NO additional equipment needed.

Influences & Inspiration
I listen to and have met many great and world champion bagpipers who inspire me to work hard, practice every day, and be the best musician I can be. I started playing piano when I was 8 years old. In Junior High School I chose to pick up the Trumpet (which I still play now and then) and played in Marching band, Jazz band, and orchestra through high school. I play bugle for military honors a few times a year, but most of my time is spent perfecting my bagpiping and learning new tunes I can use to please my listeners.
Nothing needed except a place to stand.
