Colorado is the nation’s highlands: imagine castles, bagpipes, kilts, “Scotland The Brave” and “Oh, Danny Boy”. Is this your heritage? No other instrument pays tribute to it, or adds to the excitement and pageantry of a wedding, party or special event like the Great Highland Bagpipes.

Based in Denver, but serving Colorado’s Front Range and neighboring Western States, Randy Arent will help you plan the musical selections for your special occasion. By incorporating the power and grandeur of the Great Highland Bagpipes your event will be one that is as unique and distinctive as you deserve it to be. Read less

INFO FOR CEREMONY MUSIC

What ceremony music arrangements can you provide?
Instrumental - Solo
What is your usual attire?
Highlands dress; jacket, vest, kilt etc.
Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
I've posted a number of tunes I play often for weddings on my web site. This is not an extensive list, I know many more tunes. Given enough lead time I can take special requests.
How much time do you usually need for setup?
I arrive 30-45 minutes prior to the ceremony for tune up and coordinating with the party.
How much space do you usually require?
I need no more space than the average guy. The drones make me about 7 feet tall, doorways can be problems. I need to duck a little going through.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Within a hour drive of Denver I do not charge for travel. Outside the Denver metro area I charge the IRS allowed travel allowance. I also request overnight lodging if the venue is too distant for a return trip the same day.

Randy Arent played the bagpipes at our June 21st Dunafon Castle Wedding. It was an Irish affair with the wedding party all dressed in kilts as well as many of our Irish relatives. Randy was the perfect addition to the clan. He played wonderfully and flawlessly for our guests as they arrived. I could not have asked for a better bagpiper to pipe me down the aisle! Randy brought his own ideas for how the wedding party should be introduced and I was thankful for his suggestions that worked marvelously. Randy made me feel comfortable and was always warm, friendly, and responsive. Our day would not have been complete without him.

Randy was outstanding in every way. First of all - very easy to make arrangements with, especially from a long distance. Very prompt in responding to emails and questions. Extremely professional with a great personality and quite a sense of humor. It was a pleasure dealing with him. And on top of all that, he is a fantastic piper!

Mr. Arent was professional throughout the entire process. He was flexible, accommodating, and punctual.

Mr. Arent did exactly what we asked for, and actually even delivered above that. Our expectations were exceeded. He is an extremely talented individual. The music was well-played and very beautiful. We had a guest who submitted a photo of him to their twitter account during the ceremony! Everyone was so impressed with his music and we received numerous compliments from our wedding guests. We highly recommend him!!!

He arrived on time in the designated spot and his music was wonderful. My husband was completely surprised and the look on his face was priceless. I only wish I had hired him to play longer. Thank you so much Randy for being part of this long awaited event! Sue

Randy,

I am so glad I ran into you at the Farque (sp?) funeral. Your bagpiping services there led me to ask you to play at my wedding.

I have received so many comments about how good your were and what a great touch your music was to the wedding experience. Both Brian and I could not have been more pleased. As far as we are concerned, you are the BEST!!!!! A hugh thank you from us.

James Baca's pictures are great of you are excellent! I will e-mail them to you soon.

Again, thank you and if you ever need a reference, I would be delighted to provide one.

My best to you, Connie Kavanagh

I can’t give Randy enough praise for his role in our wedding. His level of professionalism and attention to detail were amazing, right down to a toast of fine Scotch whisky before the ceremony. The pipes sounded excellent leading us into our ceremony; the mystic of bagpipes can’t be matched. I highly recommend his service.
