Every event could be brightened or benefited with a listen and performance from Jim Sloan. He effortlessly captures the spirit of a corporate event, birthday, wedding, golf tournament, family reunion, grand opening, reception, or cultural celebration with his expansive repertoire of Scottish classics, traditional jigs, and lively reels. He'll march in a parade or pay tribute at a memorial with a bagpipe he plays as gracefully as the plaid kilt he sports. Spruce up that store opening or get riled up at a frat party. Put the "fun" in "fundraising", or hum along in a church service.
Jim has been interviewed for his performance at Culhane's Irish Pub and has opened The Players Championship golf tournament. There's no occasion that won't see the appeal of a trip through Scotland's culture with a listen to the skilled sounds of Jim's pipes.

USS The Sullivans DDG 68
Mr. Sloan was gracious enough to board USS The Sullivans via a water tug boat to play the bag pipes as the ship returned from a 8 month deployment. It was a very special moment for me pulling back in after deployment to see our families on the pier and hear the bag pipes playing in the background, it was something out of a movie scene. I’m grateful that Mr. Sloan was there to bring us home. My family still talks about it today and this was 10 years ago, it’s a memory that I’ll never forget. Needless to say I reached out to Mr. Sloan again to perform at another event and he agreed to perform. I’m so excited because I know he will do a fantastic job. Thank you Mr. Sloan for creating lasting memories. BRAVO ZULU!

Wow!!! Jim was awesome piping us in to our reception!!!
So glad he was recommended to us!
Great Piper and Fun Guy!
Jim is one fun guy!! We had hired him for my Dads 90th birthday party at Epping Forest Yacht club.
Not only did he sound fantastic, was accommodating with our time change - He kept us in stitches with his piping stories and jokes :)
It was the highlight of the event!!

I first hired Jim from a recommendation. Now I recommend him frequently! He has done numerous community events, Sunday services, funerals and weddings for me. In each case he has been professional and aware of the needs of the various groups. And his skill on the bagpipe is amazing! I have not heard any complaints about Jim: only raving reviews!
I did a lot of research before hiring Jim for my event.
First off the venue Casa Marina recommended him.
As I did my research I found out he was the duty bagpiper for the Ritz Carlton, Timuquanna Country Club,Tpc Sawgrass, Riverhouse St Augustine,Naval Station Jacksonville,City of St Augustine,St Augustine Basilica, Memorial Presbyterian St Aug and Riverside Presbyterian in Jacksonville.
He was a total professional yet easy going and accommodating :)
The guests from my wedding are still talking about him :)
