I am motivated by knowing how much the pipes mean to people, and I work hard to make sure everything is as close to perfect as possible.

Here is a sample of what others have said about me piping at their events:
          • Joseph played at the grave site service for my sister. His playing was soulful and joyful at the same time. He accommodated my request and was prompt in answering emails before the event. The added special "Irish" touch he gave to my sister's funeral was so comforting to us all. I would, without any reservations recommend Joe again. I hope to hire him again in the future for a happier occasion. Thank you so much Joseph, you will never know how much comfort your playing gave our family and friends. Donna M, Brookfield, WI
          • Joe was very willing to work with me to keep his presence hidden until the moment of the announcement of my wife and myself as a married couple.

          • Joseph Sommers did a fabulous job at our wedding and reception! The chapel was very small in northern Wisconsin in the woods, and the addition of a bagpiper was the icing on a perfect wedding day!

Thanks Mr. Sommers! -Candice C, Luck, WI

          • We had Joseph play the recessional for our wedding ceremony as a surprise to all of our guests/bridal party. Joseph did a fantastic job keeping his presence under wraps until the very end and by the gasps we heard as Joseph began playing, our surprise worked! We had lots of feedback at the reception and in the couple of days since the wedding and everyone was impressed. Even my new mother-in-law who is a former music teacher was thrilled and I was slightly concerned she would react negatively because she was not involved in this decision. She thought I could not have chosen a better piper than Joseph, that he "played very well and even 'looked the part'". -Anne H, Wilmette, IL
