Here is a brief sample of the many responses Tim Carey gets from his customers:
The perfect surprise accent to a wonderful rehearsal dinner for my son. It was on the water at Annapolis Maritime Museum and he was just suddenly there, and the sound drifted across the water and the entire party of 120 guests just stopped and were in awe. Thank you Tim, it was great.

Tim Carrey was wonderful! He was sensitive to our family's needs and his music greatly enhanced the service for our mother.
-Susan M, 12/23/2010, Funeral, Arlington, VA
If you ever need someone to play at a funeral Tim is the right person for the job. He know exactly what to play, how to play it and how to be in the background but still be there. My mother would have been proud to know that Tim was going to play at her funeral and I'm sure she was listening from up above. My family and I appreciated Tim and his music at the grave site at Arlington National Cemetery .

Tim is an excellent piper and followed my very specific instructions to the letter; he arrived at the event ahead of time to familiarize himself with the venue and checked in with me several times via e-mail and phone to see if I had any additional instructions. I would heartily recommend him to anyone! He was a fantastic addition to our wedding!
-Peter W, 9/5/2010, Wedding Ceremony, Fort Belvoir, VA
We cannot thank Tim Carey enough!! He was there early, was completely professional, executed perfectly what was asked of him and his talent is unbelieveable. He had everyone in tears at the end of the wedding because his performance was so moving! He made our daughter's wedding ceremony so special and memorable and we will never forget him.
-Christy W, 6/26/2010, Wedding Ceremony, Charlottesville, VA
Tim and I discussed by email the music to be played and the complications surrounding our Memorial Service. He was very accomodating, and his playing was very much appreciated by the Service attendees. In fact so much so, that the older members of our group said that when their time came, they wanted a 'piper' for their own Service!
-Tim H, 6/19/2010, Funeral, Arlington, VA
Tim Carey played the bagpipes at the church and cemetary for my father-in-law's funeral. Tim is extremely talented, experienced, reliable and accommodating, and we were all very pleased with the nice touch his music added at both places. He is a true professional and I would highly recommend him to perform at any occasion. Tim is the best!
-Pam C, 5/11/2010, Funeral, Rockville, MD
Tim Carey was totally professional and accommodating. I had to change the time of his performing the morning of the performance and he was so gracious about the change. He played at the entrance to the chrch before my daughter's wedding. He set the tone for a joyous celebration. He was also so prompt in calling me back when we were making the original arrangements. Thank you Mr. Carey for making long distance arrangements so easy.

Tim was awesome! He's flexible, laid back, and a fantastic musician who helped make an event we hosted just perfect. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a bagpipe player.
-Christine S, 1/30/2010, Birthday Party (Adults), Washington, DC
Tim Carey was absolutely wonderful to work with. His professionalism was evident from our first point of contact, and his musical talent on the bagpipes was of the highest caliber. He helped create the perfect atmosphere for my father's funeral, and my family will always be grateful to him for the role he played.
-Charlie B, 1/9/2010, Funeral, Mitchellville, MD
Tim was fantastic! Our guests couldn't stop talking about how great our bagpiper was and what a wonderful job he did of leading all the guests from one venue to the other. I would highly recommend him - a real professional and an excellent piper!

Tim did an amazing job performing the recessional at my wedding. It was a perfect way to bring a piece of my Scottish heritage to the ceremony.
-Katie N, 8/8/2009, Wedding, Fulton, MD
Well, this is the second time I've submitted feedback, but I went over the 675 character limit and my feedback was erased. So, this time in a nut shell: professional, flexible, patient, entertaining, skilled, groomed, unique, prepared, & excellent. I loved him, my guests loved him, and the minister loved him. He couldn't have done anything to make his performance better. We want to hire him again for another church function. Wonderful!
-Paul W, 5/30/2009, Anniversary Party, Ellicott City, MD
everything went great!
-Lauren D, 3/17/2009, Saint Patrick's Day Party, Washington, DC

Tim Carey was a WONDERFUL addition to our wedding ceremony! I couldn't possibly have been more pleased with his performance. He's a really nice guy and was very fun to work with - I'd recommend him in a heartbeat...
-Sarah D, 10/18/2008, Wedding, Boones Mill, VA

Please feel free to post our comments on your website. Sincerely, Barbie & Anthony Gilardi event date: Sat Oct 11, 2008 (Washington DC)
-Anthony G, 10/11/2008, Wedding, Washington, DC
Tim's bagpiping skills were terrific, and his selection of tunes for our guest of honor was perfect. Following his performance, he made himself available to answer questions about the bagpipe. He's very personable, has a great sense of humor, and is fun to deal with. Prior to the event, he followed up in a timely way. Just a great all-round experience!
-Jan R, 8/23/2008, Birthday Party (Adults), Arlington, VA
"I am very proud of my Scottish and Irish heritage and spoke with several pipers before selecting Tim for my wedding. The decision became easy as I quickly realized there are very few pipers on the East Coast with Tim's ability. He really got the reception hall up and dancing with his incredible jigs and reels."

"Tim is a genuine professional who added so much to my mother's 70th birthday celebration. Family members still talk about it!"

"Tim's beautiful music at my father's funeral was such a comfort to me and my family. We are forever grateful for that. I know dad was in Heaven smiling down on us."
- From a funeral at Arlington National Cemetery , November 2007
"Being a piper myself, I was thrilled to have someone of Tim's caliber play at my wedding. He filled the church with such beautiful music that now all my family wants to know why I don't sound like that! Thanks Tim for being such a powerful and stirring part of our very special day."
