Community Event: "We could not have been happier with Jeff Herbert and his performance. He was very professional and accommodating, plus he is an excellent musician. Our event was an Irish American Heritage celebration at a college extension center and Jeff made so interesting and informative, as well as entertaining. Our students were very engaged and enjoyed the entire show. Jeff was happy to answer the students' questions, demonstrate the bagpipes and tell wonderful stories about Irish music and his experience as an Irish American. We will definitely book him again next year!!"

Private Party: "Jeff was so easy to work with; he showed up in advance and considered the size of the room and audience when delivering his performance. He is very personable and the audience loved him! The cost was reasonable for 2 hours of performing. I would definitely book again with Jeff."

Funeral: "Jeff Herbert played beautifully, anticipated location and crowd movement to provide optimal acoustics and a respectful dignified professional. Many in our gathering of 200 remarked on how moving Jeff Herbert’s music was. We highly recommend Jeff Herbert."

Singing/Piping Telegram: "Never in my entire LIFE have I been happier with a purchase. Jeff went above and beyond by playing several songs, and his talent was simply amazing. This was a surprise for my sister's 40th and he played Irish songs on the bagpipes from our childhood and then played Van Morrison -singing and guitar- better than Van himself. I wished I lived in the Washington area so I could send him to everyone I know. I will book him next year again for sure!!! He responded within minutes of every email I sent (changing times, questioning songs, etc) and was a total pleasure to plan this with. I will recommend him 100 times over the next person in this field."
