Everyone enjoyed the band. they arrived on time and played outdoors for 5 hours during cold weather. Very professional and dependable. Music selection was great for our event (more formal afternoon party with work acquaintances). For other types of events ask Robert, he does have other musicians on hand as well.

Rhythm and Steel was excellent! I missed the performance because it was during my cocktail reception but the videos I saw from my friends were awesome! My friends and family are still talking about how they were jammin! Robert was very responsive and professional and I will definitely book with him again. Thank you!
