"David added so much to our daughter's wedding. His help with the music selection, his talent as well as his authentic uniform gave the ceremony and reception the warmth and uniqueness we were looking for. There was not a dry eye in the place! David also went out of his way to make the planning and the actual wedding day go smoothly. The whole experience was so stress free in a very stressful situation. He is a caring, talented and very professional man and we appreciated all that he did for us."

"The Chief Shabbona Fire Academy was started with the intention of unifying the training of several Will and Grundy County, Illinois Fire Departments. This began a trend of teaching future firefighters pride, tradition, and honor in the fire service and themselves, as well as the skills needed to survive on the job. Graduation from a paramilitary fire academy is one of the most memorable moments in a firefighters career. This is why we have consistently used David Cormalleth and his company to play at our graduation ceremonies. David's playing of the bagpipes honors years of fire service tradition. While playing at our graduations, David has always displayed the level of professionalism that is demanded of such an important event in the fire service. His eye for detail and versatility in musical selection is one of the many reasons we will continue to request his services for all our future needs. I am greatly appreciative that David has been able to be a part of our academy's rich history and cannot recommend him highly enough."

The Scullys - Arlington, VA: "David played at my father's funeral in Chicago. He was a gift given to us by our friends in Arlington, Virginia who were unable to attend the service. He played his pipes as we exited the chapel at the cemetery. Everyone was captivated by his presence and their attention was focused on the piper and his music. His rich sounds were a worthy ending to the event honoring my father, the fireman and veteran.
