*ACOUSTIC GUITARIST IN ALABAMA
*WEDDING SINGER IN ALABAMA
*COUNTRY SINGER/GUITARIST IN ALABAMA
*COUNTRY ONE MAN BAND IN ALABAMA

From a recent Gigmasters event: "Robert played at my husband's surprise 40th birthday party and to say he was a huge hit is an understatement. Robert was great to work with and made the planning process super easy for me. He sent me his play list beforehand and I loved that he knows a little bit of everything. We had people from 18 to 60+ at the party and he played an awesome mix of music that everyone really enjoyed. He took requests as well, which certainly made folks happy. I couldn't be more pleased with hiring him that evening and will definitely be looking for a reason to have him at another event in the future! Robert was awesome!"-Amanda D, Woodstock, GA

Equipment:

*2 acoustic guitars: The dependable and trusted Martin Acoustic and the new top of the line Breedlove. Both have amazing sound and are crisp

What do others say?:

Robert was the hit of the party. My guests ages ranged from 6 months to 70 and his Southern charm, wide genre of songs, and beautiful voice made this 50th birthday party one me and my guests will always remember. Robert was very accommodating and let some of the younger crowd play dance music from their Smart Phones during a break. The owner of the restaurant came and listened to the last set and ask for his business card and so did my nieces who are in college and book events for their sororities. Outstanding and I can't wait to book him again! -Kim K, Cropwell, AL (gig ID# 1985669)

"He was amazing! We had such a blast listening and even singing with him! He MADE the party! We will definitely will be referring him to everyone and hiring him again! Thank you so much Robert! -Casey C, Cullman, AL (gig ID# 1817734)

"Robert was amazing! He went above and beyond for our wedding! He learned a new song for us, played tons of hit songs, talked with guests, and even hooked up his iPod at the end if the night for extra dance time. His equipment is awesome and I had several people say that it sounded like a full band was there with the great acoustics and microphone! My guests definitely noticed Robert and I had so many people tell me that. If you want someone who will do whatever it takes to make your event the best, book Robert!" -Hannah H, Albertville, AL (gig ID# 1660744)

So, for private parties, weddings, receptions weeknight shows, weekend shows, and for whatever event you may be planning, this could be your ticket to true, fun and audience-involved entertainment.

Let me begin by saying we could not have asked for a better all around performer than Robert...he is amazing! He was more than willing to learn songs for my ceremony and performed them excellently. All of our family and friends raved on him and even went as far as stating that he personally "made" the reception/celebration. Lets just say, Robert was already being hired by a staff member at the reception to perform at her own wedding. He is an excellent performer encompassing vocals, acoustic guitar and the personality to please a crowd. You will not be disappointed!
