Hi Robbie,  it was lovely to meet you this afternoon and we want to thank you so much for helping us to carry out Dads wishes to have a piper playing at his funeral. It was a very moving, beautiful tribute to a very special family member. It was so moving to see you walk in front of the hearse. He would have be delight and proud of the tribute you performed today.

Thank you once again and we wish you well for the future.

Sandra and Bob Hazlewood

Dear Robert 
This comes to thank you for all you contributed to yesterday's service for Francis, (and for so graciously submitting to my rehearsal schedule).
Your musical contribution made a marvellous, and most unusual ending to the service.  Everyone said afterwards how moving they had found it to listen to the Piper's Lament at the end of the service, fading away, and during the reception.
You looked resplendent in your regalia!
Although I am sure you will hear from Fiona direct in due course, I thought you might like to know that I received a very appreciative phone call from her  last night, on behalf of all the family.  She was delighted with how it all went.  And I am hearing that this has helped them take the next step along the road without Francis.
So thank you very much indeed.
With best wishes
Rev Katie

    Thank you so much Robert for making my mother's 90th birthday so very special. You were fantastically accommodating to all of our requests, charming to everyone and played brilliantly. Our guests loved it and your fabulous playing made the day truly unique. Many thanks again.

    Rob made our wedding! I had to persiade my husband to let me have a piper as he isn’t a fan, after the wedding he said it just wouldn’t have been the same without him. He was incredible. We didn’t have to give him any instructions, he just turned up looking great and did his thing. I can’t recommned him highly enough.

    Dear Robert
    Thank you very much for playing at our fundraising Burn's night. The evening was a great success. You far exceeded our expectations; by arriving early so that the bagpipes welcomed our guests and then staying for the whole evening playing a number of popular Scottish songs which we sang along to as well as other tunes to keep us entertained.You have a great personality and I would definitely recommend you to anyone planning an event with a Piper.

    Dear Robert, I would just like to write to you and express how delighted I was with your entrance and performance at my darling Davids 70th birthday. You were my secret surprise on the evening and I will always remember the look of surprise and delight on his face when he heard and saw you marching in with the beautiful mystic sound of your pipe. I am afraid to say you had a lot of lady's and men with tears in their eyes. An evening to be remembered by all. Thank you.

"Robert, you were the star of our Burns night here in Worcestershire. You were a professional in every sense, it goes without saying that you are a fantastic piper but so importantly, you were
friendly, approachable and willing to be flexible according to the demands asked of you. We could not have asked for more and on behalf of all the guests and the Bridge Hotel Worcester, thank you. Until next
year as we wouldn't consider having anyone else now for our annual Burns night supper soon."
