Nursing Home Event
in Battle Creek, MI
"Bob performed for our fall celebration and truly made our event special. He was engaging and sailed through a couple of interruptions without skipping a beat. I'm still getting great feedback from out guests."
- Diana D.
in Ann Arbor, MI
"Bob was hired to play at a fall festival for my office and he performed an hour's worth of music. I think he was the perfect musician for the job. From the the moment I began working with him, he was thorough and inquisitive, making sure to take care of details ahead of time. Once he arrived on site, he set up his instruments quickly and was ready to go at the start of the event. My co-workers were impressed with his talent and really enjoyed him. He plays a variety of folk songs and rock/pop, which was the right mix for our crowd. "

We have dealt with many "high maintenance" entertainers and Bob is NOT one of them....He arrived promptly, was well organized and went about his business....His show was very well received by our diverse audience. His music was a blend of good memory stuff and fun sing along tunes... I would highly recommend him...."
