Hire a Piper or a Band

Do you need a single piper for your event? Contact Piper Guss for availability. If she's not available, she can help find a bandmate who can help.

General Pricing Guidelines:

We know that people need to be able to budget for events, so I will review general guidelines and prices.

Here are the things we consider when setting up our pricing:

  1. Each gig is considered different and is specialized for the needs of those hiring the piper. There is a base fee, and the items below can affect the price. Depending on the time required and amount of tunes played, base costs typically start at $200.

  2. There is additional pricing for:

    • Extended travel distance

    • Extremely late or early hours (before 8:00 A.M. or after 8:00 P.M.)

    • Unusual or specialize tune requests. Please understand that the bagpipes have 9 notes, so some tunes do not necessarily transfer easily to the pipes, not that it can't be done.

    • Extended playing times.

    • For a series of events or locations in one day.

    • Anything that is different or other than a base gig

  3. When a small band is required, there is increased pricing that depends on number of pipers and drummers required.

  4. If you want to hire a specific band from the City of Dunedin Pipe Band, you will have to schedule through them, and they have their own pricing system.  Please contact the band through their website: or ask Piper Guss for contact information. 

  5. Piper Gratitude Discounts: The piper appreciates the hard work, dedication, faith, sacrifice, and friendship of many. To honor those and show gratitude, she offers the following discounts:

    • Military Veterans​​

    • Police/Firefighters/First Responders

    • Resident/Subdivision Neighbors

    • Employees of the Pasco County School District

    • Members of her home church

  • Discount Pricing is as follows:

    • If total is under $300, then discount is $25.00

    • If Total is between $300 and $500, then discount is $50

    • If total is between $500 and $1000, then discount is $75
