Darius made our wedding ceremony absolutely beautiful and meaningful through his music. Everyone loved our bagpiper. Darius was extremely professional, detail-oriented, and did exactly what we had asked. I highly recommend him for your event!Sent on 10/04/2018

Darius was absolutely amazing! I hired Darius as a surprise for my husband on the day of the wedding and Darius was able to play about 15 minutes at the end of cocktail hour. Not only was my husband surprised but our guests were too! It was so fun to have him there playing the bagpipes! What a special touch to our wedding. Throughout the process Darius was super responsive and so easy to communicate with which I so appreciate with a vendor. I would definitely recommend Darius to anyone needing bagpipes for an event! THANKS AGAIN!Sent on 05/19/2017
