"Having Steve at our wedding was a wonderful addition to our Scottish theme. He was happy to be photographed with our guests and even gave the page boys a lesson on playing the pipes. Thoroughly recommended..."
Steve & Michelle
"Steve and Dave played at the funeral of my Grand Father today. He loved the sound of the pipes and to have the 2 pipers in full dress lead him into the crematorium, will have delighted him. Thank you on behalf of all the family."
Masonic Lodge Newport
"I think I speak for all of us when I say that we had a fantastic evening of entertainment from you and the band. It was a spectacle to delight and is what makes Burns Night go so well. It just wouldn't be the same without your band. The uniforms, the instruments and the bands enthusiasm! Well done and a big thank you!"
The Pink Sisters Charity |Ball
"Steve made an excellent contribution to the evening, piping our guests in on arrival. He looked very smart and we had lots of great comments from the Guests. Steve gave his services free of charge to our charity and even made a contribution to the raffle, a prize of a piper to play at an event of the winners choice, which raised £150!"
Swyffrd Community Centre New Years Party 2019/20
"This was the first year that we had engaged a Piper for our annual New Years Eve Party. Steve was fabulous and very friendly posing for photos with guests. He piped in the New Year to the traditional Auld Lang Syne and many other traditional tunes and had everyone up and dancing . We have already booked him again for next year!"

Risca Branch 2020
"Our Branch had the pleasure of having Steve play at our VJ Commemorations. Steve played as our members arrived before the service and gave us the tunes When the Battles O'er, and The Flowers of the Forest during the laying of the wreaths. It was a very moving tribute.
Steve also attended our Armistice Day service and brought with him his friend Kingsley, who played the Drum. The pair performed wonderfully before, during and after the service and made our commemorations very special. Steve has always given his time to us free of charge for such occasions, thank you Steve."

Remembrance Parade 2023
"Steve we can't thank you and Piping Hot Cwmbran enough for your support, not only with helping to organise the event itself but also for your bands performance on the day, in such horrendous weather conditions. You sounded great and everyone enjoyed marching along to your music. Thank you. "
50th Birthday Celebration
Ian & Louise
"Steve and his wife Helen came along to play outside our house as a suprise that I had organised for my husband Ian's 50th Birthday. Because of the Covid restrictions they played on the footpath suitably socially distanced! It was absolutely wonderful! It sounded beautiful and they looked so smart. They played a full 20 minute set, none stop. It took Ian right back to his days in the Army. He loved it so much that it brought a tear to his eye! We can't wait for another suitable occassion so that we can book Steve and Helen again. I can't recommend them highly enough"
Wedding Kate & Sam
We booked Steve as a suprise for our guests but especially my Dad as he is a Scot. Steve did an excellent job, everyone loved him especially Dad! Our wedding had been postponed numerous times because of the pandemic and Steve was really helpful and supportive about it all and we were so pleased that he was able to play at our wedding. Highly recommended.
90th Birthday Celebration
The Piping Hot Mini Band came to play at my Mothers 90th! Absolutely fabulous! Mom loved the suprise as did all of the neighbours who came out to watch. They even played Happy Birthday for Mom and got everyone singing. Mom especially enjoyed the tune "Marie's Wedding" because she used to dance to that with my Dad.
We decidied to book Steve & Helen very last minute as a suprise for my Dads birthday. They looked wonderful and were so friendly. They played for much longer than we had booked them for and even played "Land of my Fathers", the Welsh National Anthem for my Dad at his request, which he loved. We couldn't get over how reasonable their prices were! We will be booking again for our next party!
