My wife and I hired John for our wedding on 3rd Feb.
He was there all day from around 11am til about 7:30 and played high quality and varied songs on the pipes.
His partner also took some lovely photos to compliment those of the photographer which we really appreciated.
The booking through to the actual event couldnâ??t have gone smoother. John answered every question we had promptly and catered to all our needs.
Would highly recommend johns services. Thoroughly enjoyed having you as part of our day.

"We are the Rotary Club of Abergavenny, we asked John to help us celebrate Burns night in 2018. Put simply, John made the night, not only with his magnificent playing, but also in the advice he gave on the running of the night. He also played a few pieces over and above what we had asked for which was very welcome. I have no hesitation in highly recommending him."

"John was AMAZING and was so friendly and explained everything that was going to happen and how loud the bagpipes would be. This was so important to us as we are a care home. We 100% are going to book John again. Would definitely recommend."

John was marvellous. He arrived early and helped advise us on what would make for a good programme in terms of when to play, the piping-in of the haggis, and what tunes he could play later and when. His playing outside the hall at the start was truly memorable for guests arriving, especially those walking across the village to the hall. Everything went well, and the guests all agreed that his performance was crucial to making the evening great fun and an event to remember.

John was very professional in all he did, on the preparation and performance on the main event was awesome. Cannot fault him on anything apart from maybe not staying and having a well deserved feed and refreshment; but being such a high profile guy and as expected he was on high demand and had to get away. Not surprised in the least. THANK YOU!!!! Recommend him to all friends and family.

John?s consummate musicianship made a lovely contribution to my mother?s funeral which was valued by all of those who attended. He was extremely helpful and diplomatic in making the preparations and gave us gentle guidance, drawing on his extensive repertoire and experience, in choosing just the right combination of pieces. I was impressed with the care he took in making sure he understood our wishes, the nature of the event and the location. I would recommend John?s services to anyone who has need of a piper ? and everyone really should have need of a piper at key events in their lives.

We decided to hire John for our wedding after hearing and seeing him at a wedding fayre at our venue. We were instantly charmed by his bagpipe playing but also his friendly personality. When we got more information from him on prices we realised that he was fantastic value for money so decided to hire him for the whole day. Everyone loved his input into our big day, his bagpipe playing was perfect and he looked great in his smart outfit. He really helped to make our special day feel very special for us, and also special for our guests who all absolutely loved him.

John - Piped for us before our Gloucestershire County Gaelic Football Championship Final on Sunday 24th September 2017. He arrived early and was absolutely fantastic, adding much splendour and adding that something special, to our event, leading the teams in a Parade around the playing field before the throw in. Made our great event exceptional and unforgettable.

"John has played at several of our charity "Moon Walks" and has been an absolute star. He has led our walkers up Pen y Fan, with the pipes playing all the way, and he has piped on the top of the mountain, for all to hear. This has really added to the atmosphere of the evening, and I will certainly be asking him again next year. In addition to the wonderful playing, he always sends prompt replies, and is a pleasure to deal with. "

John Campbell helped make my daughters wedding an extraordinary day. John's attention to detail, 'can do' attitude and overall planning of the day was outstanding. John played all the tunes we wanted, Scottish and Welsh included.

Having a bagpiper at the wedding takes the experience to another level, family and guests alike.

You will not find a better piper than John and in my view, real value for money.

Thank you John for making Andrew and Kirsty's day a memorable one!

Mr John Campbell played the Military Bagpipes at my father's Reflection of Life in Canada Lodge and Lake. It was a wonderful fitting tribute to my dad who loved not only music but Military Bagpipes. John was so professional and caring. I would Highly recommend John at any occasion. Having worked for the Military plus NATO I know the compassion behind the music."

John collaborated with me in advance and made some very useful suggestions about suitable music. He was a secret surprise for Ray and all the guests. His music made our wedding very special - a day to be remembered forever. Our Scottish and German guests were delighted with the Scottish medleys and the Welsh contingent thrilled about hearing "Colon Lan"! "

John Campbell was amazing from start to finish. My daughter and myself had a meeting with John at our venue about 6 weeks before the wedding. John explained what he does, he played the Bagpipes and helped us pick the music. This was very helpful. On the wedding day he was a surprise to our guests, all were very pleased. John made our special day extra special. I would always recommend john he is professional with a great personality.

John piped at our wedding whilst all the guests arrived. John was such a pleasure to deal with,excellent communication, professional, very talented and such a gentleman. The bagpipes added such an amazing atmosphere to the wedding, the guests were telling us how they had goosebumps whilst John led us to our table. I can't thank you and your wife enough John for being part of our special day. I highly recomed John and his excellent 5 star service he provides.

" What an amazing day we had at my daughters wedding, however, John added that extra special touch. A huge surprise for most of the guests, lots of guests travelled from Scotland to Wales and this was a great welcome for them. John and Louise were very professional, they managed to provide their service at short notice and were amazingly excellent value, even more with the added bonus of photographs by Louise which were sent to me a day later. John and Louise were polite, patient and extremely discreet and professional. My daughter and her new husband along with me and the guests loved every minute of the time John was there. I was actually surprised with the service John provided with the small fee I paid. Totally outstanding and exceptional music.
Thank you John and Louise for making the day more memorable for all. "

John played at our wedding on Saturday 25th March 2017. It was a total surprise for my husband to be.
John and I discussed arrangements beforehand, he was a total professional he carried out exactly what I wanted and when I wanted it to maintain the surprise element.
Everyone loved John. He had guests in tears, for a good reason I may add they were talking about John all evening.
So John I cannot thank you enough for making our day so special and for keeping my secret.
Thank you for the lovely photos that Louise took
kind regards

"Hello John I just want to thank you very much for playing at my Mum's service this morning - especially in such horrible weather conditions.
I have always loved the pipes- and you added that special Scottish touch.
Mum was a very special person she loved all kinds of music and your music really made a difference in lifting the atmosphere.
Thank you"

John came to Barry Yacht Club's rescue on Burn's Night 2016 when our usual piper let us down. What a fantastic discovery he has turned out to be! John is super professional and has a passion for his work which made the night so special back in 2016. We had no hesitation in booking him for our Burn's Night Supper 2017 and, again, he did not let us down. The evening had drama and fun as we sang and clapped to the pipes. Barry Yacht Club is in John's diary for 2018; his presence lends authenticity and style to our event.
