From recent Gigmasters events: "Robert did an amazing job at my wedding reception! He was always quick to respond to messages leading up to the big day, very professional, reasonably priced, but most of all extremely talented and kept everyone entertained! He even learned our first dance song, Bryan Adams, "Everything I do" and it was absolutely beautiful! I've probably watched the video a dozen times over the last few days. He slowed down Trace Adkins, "Just Fishing" for my dad and I, and it was such a memorable moment for us...I think we had the whole room in tears. Robert was great at feeling out the crowd and knowing when to keep it upbeat or play some slow songs. We couldn't have been happier!" -Kristi G, Springfield, TN (gig ID# 2345453)
"We used Robert for our wedding ceremony and reception this past Labor Day weekend. He was awesome! He played acoustic for our ceremony music and also played acoustic and DJ music during our reception. He was very accommodating and prompt to respond to all my emails. He MC'd our reception as well and provided a hologram and lights for the dance floor. He even let me and my friends sing on stage with him! He was amazing and I would recommend him to anyone looking to book a singer or DJ for their event! I cant say enough great things about him!!" -Brittney N, Helena, AL (gig ID# 2278659)
"Working with Robert and his band was an amazing experience. They played at my wedding last weekend and made our ceremony AND reception unforgettable experiences. People were on the dance floor all night long, they accommodated all of our requests, and were all around a pleasure to work with. We coordinated this wedding in Georgia from Ohio and Robert was there to help us through every step of the music planning. Book him now!" -Susan C, Acworth, GA (gig ID# 2615104)

"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)
