What to Expect
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
