Both my wife and I sincerely appreciate yourpunc[t]uality, professionalism, and musical proficiency that contributed to making our wedding a truly spectacular event!!” — John and Devon Kane
“You were generous with your time and your beautiful music. Our family appreciates it more than words can say.

“Robert Burns is volunteer member of the New Traditions band at University Christian Church. Between his expertise on pipes and his versatility with guitar and pennywhistle, he adds a beautiful and unique dimension to the music at our church, unheard anyplace else in southern California worship. For the past two years he has welcomed the faithful and touched passers-by as he piped carols and other Christmas favorites outside the front door of our church on Christmas eve. We all appreciate his ability to seamlessly blend the traditional sounds of his instruments with the hymns, gospel and contemporary music of our band.” — Paul Svenson – Worship Leader, University Christian Church, San Diego, CA

“I would like to thank you again for your appearance at our daughter’s wedding on October 22nd at the La Jolla Cove Bridge Club. Your wonderful music added so much ambience to the ceremony as well as the beginning of the cocktail hour. It was what we had hoped for plus so much more. We received many compliments from our guests so I would like to pass them on to you. Needless to say both the Father of the groom (an O’Brien) and the Grandfather of the bride (an O’Neill) were tickled pink by your beautiful music. Thank you so much!!” — Moira Podgurski
“Mr. Burns was delightful and very professional. His performance added a profoundly beautiful touch to the funeral and meshed wonderfully with the Marine Corps honor guard present for the ceremony. My Father-in-law was a decorated Korean war veteran, and the pipes added so much to the military flavor of the ceremony. Thanks to Mr. Burns for his very moving rendition of ‘Highland Cathedral’. There was not a dry eye left when he was through. Thanks,” — Jeff Morgan

And thank you for accommodating all my request as well.” —Pierre Auza-Lavery
