    We used Chicalba for our wedding and Joe was excellent! He was incredibly talented, and the guests loved having bagpipe music as we recessed and for our grand exit out of the church. Having a bagpiper at the end of our ceremony is a family tradition and Joe did not disappoint. Dave was also very organized in getting us set-up for our big day. Thank you, Chicalba Bagpiping, for making our ceremony so special!

    Dave Johnson deserves a lot of praise for the very special day he helped make for my daughters wedding.

    They had 1 piper and 1 drummer playing background music for a short time outside the church after the ceremony

    There were so many comments about how good the guys were, The pipes and drums were awesome! My daughter loved it and so did all the people that attended the wedding.

    Everyone loved their choice of music and how upbeat and fun it was for everyone.

    My daughter was so happy she could hear the pipes and drums in the back of the church after the wedding while everyone was waiting outside and the wedding party was getting pictures taken, it was awesome!!!

    Thanks to Dave for making their special day more special!! I would recommend Chicalba bag piping to anyone, very professional, flexible and accommodating and the cost is very reasonable.

    Dave was so great. He was so friendly and easy to work with. Dave is very responsive and able to adapt to different crowds of people.

    He performed at my cocktail hour at the Irish American Heritage Center for my wedding in front of the guests. Everyone had such amazing things to say! He was so nice to interact with and the music was wonderful.

    I cannot thank him enough! He really was an absolutely amazing addition to our celebration!
