Wonderful Performer

Mr. Cunningham put on a wonderful performance! He created a relaxing comfortable environment for us to meet and greet our new neighbors by the variety of music he played and taking requests. Everyone in the neighborhood is still talking about our party and passing on the news about what an enjoyable time they had, such that those who were unable to make it, wished they had.

Outstanding!!!

I had Rob play at my wife's 40th surprise birthday party. Rob showed up before our agreed time. He was very accommodating to the songs that I requested. Rob is very versatile in his repertoire of music prowess, from The Beatles to Irish ballards to Rock music played acoustically. Really I can't say enough, you would just have to hire him and find out for your self. Rob thanks again my family and my wife's family complimented me on my choice for guitarist/singer you really did a GREAT job. THANKS, Neil

Overview

Here are some personal testimony's that give an idea of what people are saying about Rob:

"What a find! We hired Rob for our daughter's wedding ceremony as well as for the cocktail hour. He arrived early which was huge for us. Then he sang the "Ave Maria" so beautifully and effortlessly it was as if Pavarotti himself had come back to life. I turned to my husband (father of the bride-to-be) and he whispered with tears in his eyes, "Wow!" Of course it was a special day for us but it was truly moving performance indeed. His wife Maggie, an accomplished pianist, provided the piano accompaniment for the service. Her playing was outstanding (Especially during the Canon in D ). Afterwards, during the cocktail hour, Rob accompanied himself on guitar singing jazz standards from the Big band era ala. Frank Sinatra. He created a wonderful vibe and atmosphere for people to socialize. All in all, I was extremely happy with the quality and professionalism of this performer. I consider myself lucky to have found him."

-Jeanne Perry, Barrington Hills, Il.

"This guy rocks! We hired Rob for our annual outdoor Summer BBQ and he filled the night with so many of our favorite songs from the 60's and 70's. We are huge James Taylor fans and we enjoyed his renditions of those old JT classics. Also he livened the party up with Elvis and some other 50's stuff. We'd definitely want to book him again next summer." -Aaron Ratkovitch, Hoffman Estates, il
