The Bob Blagg Trio exceeded our expectations!
They played for my father's birthday/ Father's Day celebration. It was small group of listeners but so appreciative. Being a family of professional musicians & teachers it takes a lot of talent & skill to impress us, but they really did. They played outside at a perfect volume for easy conversation. They even let my mother sing with them when she recognized a couple of songs. They begin playing right on time. We'll be figuring out when we can hire them again.
Great communication and service! Simply said, they are a high quality band that deliver on their promise.
We just had a wedding reception/family reunion and booked the Bob Blagg Trio.
We (the hosts and guests) were so appreciative of their musical talents and assistance and patience in working around other family announcements and musical exhibitions (they provided the microphone and amp). They played light Jazz all evening, as requested, and it was perfect! So much fun had by all! Bottom-line - Book this group!!!
We hired the band for my sister in laws graduation party and we were very pleased with them. They arrived on time and set up everything and were ready to play on time. The music was great and the crowd loved them. They were also flexible for our requests.
The kids at the party loved them and they were very cooperative.
I would hire them again for the next event I plan !!
I wish you guys all the best !
