Rob was awesome. He showed up early, met every music expectation I had, and was the nicest guy to work with! Highly recommend!
I threw a surprise 40th birthday party for twins and boy did everyone enjoy Rob's performance. We had about 40 people in a small backyard and a great time was had by all. Some were dancing, some were singing along, and some were just relaxing enjoying the chill vibes of Rob's music. Rob communicated well, was on-time, and sounded great. Thanks for making the twins 40th a memorable one.
Rob provided great entertainment for my husband's surprise 30th birthday party. He played a variety of songs that everyone seemed to enjoy. We even had neighbors from down the street comment on how much they loved the music! Thanks again, Rob!
Would hire again
Rob was awesome! He performed at my husband's 40th birthday, and all of the guests commented on how great he was. He even allowed a few back up singers join him. We would book him again. Thanks!
Rob was simply great! He made my daughter's HS grad party extra special! Laid back style, wonderful voice and a skilled guitarist. Huge & varied repertoire which made him a crowd pleaser (attendees ranged from 6 - 85 yrs old). Rob also allowed my niece who is a singer and neighbor to accompany him - cool!
Rob did an amazing job for my engagement. He is very talented!
Response from Rob Camerino:
Thanks so much for the great review, James... Congratulations on your engagement!
Lucky enough to contact Rob and book him for my event last Friday. He had left for a year to take a turn at the Corporate world but is back better than ever. Can play and sing any song while always engaging the audience. Welcome back.
I threw a backyard pool party for my wife's 30th birthday with about 40 guests and booked Rob to play for 5 hours. He was perfect for the occasion and even though 5 hours is a long time, Rob had no problem performing and keeping the crowd into it. Rob has a great voice and was able to play a wide range of songs, plus his originals are great as well! Everyone at the party was very impressed and wants to book him for future parties. I would definitely book him again for future events. Great job Rob! Thanks again!
Response from Rob Camerino:
Thanks so much for the review, Jay! I had an awesome time with you guys, let me know if you ever need a musician for anything again!
Rob came and performed for our small wedding reception of 40 people. Everyone loved it! I can't tell you how many compliments I received from people attending. I had some musicians on the guest list, and they made a point to tell me what a great guitarist Rob was as well. We had some mellow tunes, Rob has a great voice and it was one of the highlights of the party!! So glad we did it!
Response from Rob Camerino:
Thanks so much for letting me be a part of your Wedding Reception! I had a great time with you guys and am glad everyone enjoyed themselves - Congratulations again on getting married!
I hired Rob for a cocktail party during the summer. The crowd consisted of adults ranging from their early to late 20s. He tailored his performance to the crowd & did a phenomenal job of mixing in his own songs as well as covers of popular songs. Everybody in the joint was rocking along with the music. I really enjoyed how he engaged the crowd. I had no idea he was a funny guy & his humor helped the break the ice. I would absolutely recommend him to my family & friends for another event.
I booked Rob for my graduate school graduation bash and everyone absolutely loved him!!
For many years now, I have had the pleasure of enjoying Rob's versatile musicianship in a variety of settings. No matter the audience or venue, solo performance or group performance, original songs or cover songs... Rob never ceases to engage and amaze the crowd! He really can do it all, not to mention he's also quite hilarious.
You most certainly do not want to miss out on booking Rob for your event. He is just the artist you've been looking for!
I hired Rob to play at my sister's engagement party. He did a wonderful job at selecting songs that fit the tone of the party. He was super personable and interacted with the crowd. We also got to hear a few of his originals which were amazing. Definitely plan on using him for future events.
I hired Rob to perform at a surprise birthday event I was hosting for a close friend of mine. The crowd consisting of mainly mid to late 20s with ages also ranging from 70s to young children. I can confidently say everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. His ability to not only cover popular fan favorite songs, but also make them one of his own, was way beyond our expectations. Family and friends had even requested some of his own work, and that too had the crowd enjoying his style and lyrics. Rob truly amazed me and everyone who attended and I can confidently say we enjoyed not only him but his presence, he was funny, social, engaged the crowd and ultimately made for a great party. I have personally recommended him to multiple friends and do plan to hire him for future events.
Rob was absolutely phenomenal - my nieces as well as my mother in-law could not stop raving about his music. Excellent preformer. Got everyone involved and had people clapping and enjoying themselves. WILL definitely book again.
I've booked Rob for several events -- special celebrations and house concerts. He is a fantastic artist with a keen ability to customize his performance to the group. In addition to his impressive musicianship and singing, he is expert at engaging the crowd and is actually quite funny, too!
I have no doubt that you and your guest/clients/customers will will thoroughly enjoy Rob's performance at your venue/next event.
Rob is a versatile musician who can easily engage the audience or simply play beautiful music
