Thank you for playing the Scottish bagpipes at our family’s Robert Burns Supper this year. Thank you for playing so many songs by Burns, and for playing such a delightful variety of Scottish songs. Several of our guests this year are from Scotland; many commented how beautifully you played the Scottish Great Highland Bagpipes. Thank you for playing a beautiful prelude as our guests arrive, played during during the programme and for accepting requests from our family and guests. You rendition of “Auld Lang Syne” at the end was superb.
We are so glad you were available to play for Clan Grant again (I believe this is the eight time you’ve played for a Grant Family event). You are always welcome at any and all Clan Grant events. We are honored with your presence, you august company and your incredibly beautiful and amazing music. I shall recommend you to anyone who needs a piper and wants the best.Superb Piper, Friendly and Professional, The Best!
My mother was born in County Galway, Ireland and loved Irish music and bagpipes. One of her last requests was for a piper to play her favorite songs at her funeral service. I searched online and found several pipers in the area. I decided to call them and compare. Dr. Pazo was listed among the top bagpipers California. After calling two other pipers and get their quotes I called Dr. Pazo. He was was very attentive, cordial and friendly; he took the time to listen to me, and told me he was available to play for Mom’s service. He gave me a quote and send me a written quote by email and text. He also send me a link to his website, which has many songs recorded by him playing bagpipes and a link to his YouTube channel with videos of many of the songs I requested. Although I had gotten quotes from other pipers who offered to play for less (cheaper), Dr. Pazo made a great impression when I spoke to him. He was very patient and soft spoken, very knowledgeable about Irish music and Irish songs. He never pressured me to make an rushed decision to hire him (unlike another piper I spoke to, who was “cheaper”, very pushy and tried to rushed me into booking him). I am so glad I took the time to compare, listen to recordings and watch videos; it was all worth with because I now know that I hired the best piper!
Dr. Pazo is a true professional in every way: kind, patient and compassionate, friendly and cordial. He is a terrific piper, impeccably dressed and knowledgeable. He worked closely with the pastor of our Church and funeral director to coordinate the music. His playing was so beautiful and uplifting, much more beautiful than any other piper I’ve ever heard before. If you are looking for the best experience hiring a professional, look no further; I highly recommend his as a top-level piper with a heart of gold!Top-Level Piper with a Heart of Gold!
