NQ SCOTS get great reviews:

What a show! Let me start by saying that you did indeed show us the other side of bagpipes and anyone not a fan of that much maligned instrument would be now if they had seen you. Your song choice, presentation and performance enthusiasm was a perfect combination that filled the venue and packed out the dance floor. Thank you again for a unique and extremely entertaining performance.

For anyone thinking of hiring a Piper for a special day, well David is the man. We have been lucky enough to have him play at many an event on the Gold Coast. He has played for us each year for us at out tartan party at the New Year and also marches the Scottish team onto the park at our anual Scotland v England football match.

- Robert Invararity

You looked absolutely magnificent and it was just wonderful to have you in front of the bridal party, piping us in. It was one of the many standout moments of the day, especially for our family and those friends who were aware of my Scottish background.

Once again, many thanks!

Thanks so much for last night David!
The bride and groom are both music teachers and come from a very musical family so the impact you had just walking in that room last night and doing what you did almost brought a tear to their eyes.
It was an absolute pleasure and honour playing with you, it’ll stick will stick with everyone involved forever.
