Bobby Cool and his band, The Nashville Players, help make any event feel like a party. Whether you want background music for a cocktail hour or a high energy performance to keep the dance floor packed, these guys work to ensure that the music planning part of your event is easy and stress free. They have headlined events for Microsoft, Budweiser, Toyota, and have played corporate functions, weddings, fundraisers, festivals, colleges, casinos, and private parties all over the country.
I cannot begin to say how amazingly talented Bobby Cool and the Nashville Players are! It has been three weeks since our wedding and our small town is still talking about them!! The fiddle player is a must!! If you are looking for a country good time, they are it!!
We booked Bobby cool for a charity and foundation dinner. He exceeded our expectations with his professionalism, follow through and communication, and the live performance. I would certainly reccomend Bobby and will plan to use them again for our upcoming events.
Bobby is perfect wedding entertainment. We hired him for our wedding this past weekend and he couldn't have been any easier to work with. He took every request we threw at him - new songs to learn, recordings for us to listen to, logistics and coordination requests... he took it all with a smile and a "you got it" attitude, which was a major relief from other wedding headaches. Not only that, but the guy is talented - he can sing anything, play a good guitar, and can work a crowd. He read the mood and the audience throughout the evening and played appropriately. If you are seeking an honest, easy-going, and talented entertainer for your event - just stop looking and find out when Bobby is free.
Bobby Cool and his guys are absolutely amazing! They are truly world class musicians and all around great guys! I will honestly book them every time!
We hired Bobby Cool Band to play at our company Christmas party this past weekend, and we were blown away! We opted for the 5 piece band, and they completely exceeded our expectations!
To begin, they drove over 4 hours each way to play out our event. There were 80 people there with ages ranging from 25-65, and every single person raved about how good the band was. They played to and engaged our crowd and had a play list with a wide variety of genre's, as well as current vs. oldies song choices. They even let a couple of our own people get up and sing along with them.
They started playing a little early for us and ended up playing a little late without ever saying a word. Not to mention they played almost the entire time they were there (4 hours). We couldn't be more happy and would hire them again in a minute! Bobby has a wonderful, clear voice that lends itself to all genre's of music and his backup musicians are super talented.
Do not waste your time looking any further for a band that will get your crowd going and guarantee that everyone has a great time! These guys are by far the best!! I cannot say enough good things about this band. Hire them NOW before you miss out!
My wife and I hired Bobby Cool to sing country music and play acoustic at our wedding reception. We had over 175 guests, and it's fair to say everyone was stunned by his talent! He was truly was amazing!
We hired Bobby a few months before our wedding. I was looking for someone play country music from some of the legends, as well as a few good Texas artists. After listening to Bobby's music, I realized he was a super talented guy and wanted him to play some of his own songs as well.
Bobby agreed to drive from Nashville to Indianapolis to perform for us. He didn't ask for anything extra, just fuel money. I called him several times before the wedding to talk about the song list. Each call he answered and spent plenty of time discussing my song preferences. He also had several conversations and exchanged emails with our DJ to make sure everything would go smoothly at the reception. It was clear that Bobby really cared about our special day and wanted to make sure everything was perfect.
I liked every song on Bobby's play list. But, my wife and I really wanted to dance to a song by Stoney LaRue, "Feet Don't Touch the Ground." Bobby didn't know the song when I first mentioned it, but he offered to learn it for us. Bobby learned it and sang the song at the reception for our dance, and it was THE BEST VERSION I've ever heard! Fabulous moment for my wife and I.
I seriously can't stress how good Bobby Cool was on at our wedding reception. If you are lucky enough to book him to play for your special event, you definitely should!
The Bike MS Atlanta really enjoyed the energy and sound of Bobby Cool and his 5 piece band. Their music choices ranged from current cover to excellent country rock-n-roll from the 70's. Bobby Cool sound appeals to Baby Boomers and Millennials making him a great choice for corporate events!
Bobby Cool was awesome! I had a 3-piece band for my husband's surprise 40th birthday party. They played a wide variety of songs with precision. Everyone at the party loved them. They were entertaining, energetic, and fun! They were also very professional and easy to work with. I requested a few extra songs that were not on their list and they learned them prior to the party and played them. Also, they learned a song (Billy Jean by MJ) on site because the crowd wanted my husband to sing with the band. I couldn't believe how quickly they looked at the music, learned it and played it...and did it so well! I will definitely use them again and would totally recommend them to anyone.
This guy is the real deal! He was so easy to work with and so eager to please. He fit right in at our party like family. Not to mention what an amazing singer he is. You can go wrong with this guy. He can play it all from King George, to the newbies.
Bobby Cool can put on a show!! We hired Bobby for our Dixieland themed sorority date night, and he not only provided the perfect set list of songs for the theme, but he performed them so well and really got the crowd on their feet! He took song requests all night, and he and the acoustic band were able to play them flawlessly even if they hadn't practiced them. Bobby is not only very talented, but he is also thorough about what he does and made our satisfaction his number one priority. He called us before the event to discuss the types of songs and the atmosphere we were looking for, and he definitely provided just what we wanted. If you're looking for a talented, engaging and entertaining musician, definitely hire Bobby! I know we will again sometime soon!
We hired Bobby Cool to perform at our 10th Annual Conference in the Grand Ballroom at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, on October 13th of this year. We had heard him perform on You Tube, and on GigSalad, and we were very impressed. The video did not do him justice however! He has an amazing voice, and put on a terrific show. Our attendees got up and danced and even went up on stage with Bobby and he didn't blink an eye, he just kept on signing his heart out and let our group sing right along with him. He has a great sense of humor and is very relaxed up on stage. We would highly recommend him for any event!
This man is an artist! Our conference attendees got a true taste of Nashville with his performance. He played songs requested, including fun and personalized dedications, which added so much to our enjoyment. He was more than accommodating and friendly to those who wanted to meet him. We think we were lucky to have found him for our event and were just amazed at his talent! Plus he sang non-stop, without a band and without a real break of any kind. This guy has the goods! We are all buying his cd when it comes out in April.
We were very impressed with Bobby and would love to have him perform again at future events.
HE'S PERSONABLE AND CAN PLAY ANYTHING FROM A FULL PERFORMANCE TO FANTASTIC BACKGROUND MUSIC AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. YOU'LL LOVE HIM
Bobby was exactly what I wanted for my party. He was extremely talented and personable. He immediately fit in with everyone at the party. Bobby's music was incredible. He played current material and the some classics. I would recommend Bobby for any event!
He is a great choice! He sounds Amazing and is so friendly! He brought great music and was very down to earth! I wouldn't hesitate to call him back! Thanks Bobby!
What can I say - Bobby played a private function for us and he never missed a beat musically or socially! He immediately connected with the crowd, knew exactly what to play and put up with a rowdy crowd with grace and skill! We wanted to keep him forever but sadly had to send him back to his lovely wife, Amanda. Hiring Bobby Cool will ensure great music and a great time!!
I have seen Bobby perform several times and try to make it to as many performances as possible when he is in the Atlanta area. He does such an awesome job of involving the crowd as he plays and he has a great sense of humor and always makes the crowd laugh. His songs are so original and I love that he tells the stories to how he comes up with ideas for songs as he plays them. When he plays other artists songs he most certainly does them justice! He is also great about playing a variety of songs across a wide time frame. One of my personal faves is Piano man :) I highly recommend Bobby for any kind of event as I have seen him play in several different settings, including weddings, bars, band parties and restaurants.
Bobby played at my wedding and I couldn't have been happier with his performance! The only thing I wish he had done was play longer!! (this was my fault of course because I told him what to play) He is so comfortable on stage he puts everyone at ease. Then when he starts to sing, I don't think anyone can wipe a smile off their face! His voice is amazing, he's got the good looks, and is comfortable and interacts well with a crowd. I would highly recommend Bobby to play in any ceremony or during the reception. He has experience with both and will certainly not disappoint you!!
Don't pass up the talented, funny, smart, good looking, loving, fun, responsible, and AMAZING Bobby Cool!! If I were you, I would book him for your next big (or small) event!
Bobby was a great fit for our corporate reception! He was so easy to work with, low maintenance, and very reasonably priced. He took requests, had some of the crowd dancing and just added a great vibe to our event in Music City. We plan to book him again next year!
