National Cemeteries have now reopened for military funerals. Live Taps can also be played at local cemeteries or church services. I am available when needed.


Cold, freezing weather? You want a highly skilled, professional bugler - no worries with Taps quality! You will clearly hear Live Taps played correctly.

Non-veteran families can also request Live Taps for their loved one -- it's not just for veterans.


​Hire me as your professional Live Taps bugler -- a military veteran -- former trumpeter with The United States Army Band (Pershing's Own) at Arlington National Cemetery.

Click   Echo Taps   to hear how it will sound with two buglers if the family would want this instead.

When it absolutely, positively needs to be performed LIVE and CORRECTLY.

Live Taps Matters -- Helping You Honor Life

When it absolutely, positively needs to be performed LIVE and CORRECTLY, ask for me.

Hire me as your highly skilled Live Taps bugler. 

On very short notice, I will travel up to 300 miles from Saint Louis, Missouri.

Eliminate the musical uncertainty of how Taps will sound. Buglers have varying degrees of quality: Some good, many terrible. This is where I come in. With me, you can be certain my Live Taps will be played beautifully and correctly as the final farewell salute to your loved one.

Veterans deserve Live Taps, not a recording. If not requested, an electronic recording most likely will be played instead.


I am a member of the Saint Louis Musician's Union Local

Business Hours

On the day requested, I will arrive at the funeral site one hour before the anticipated time of the Military Funeral Honors presentation and will coordinate Live Taps with the firing team and/or the military flag presenters.
