  • 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!
