We knew that we wanted to hire Robert and his string trio to provide music for our ceremony and cocktail hour after hearing them play at a friend's wedding. They have a wonderful mix of classical, traditional and modern music, and also learned some new pieces for our wedding as part of their standard contract. We got so many compliments on the music, and Robert himself was fantastic to work with - he was very responsive, and just so nice throughout the entire process. We would definitely recommend hiring Robert and his trio to anyone!Sent on 11/02/2020

GREAT Guitarist and more!
We looked at a lot of musicians for our wedding, for some reason we kept coming back to Robert. When we contacted him he was very responsive and answered any questions that we had. After talking things over, we decided that Robert was the guy for us, but there was a problem, we just couldn’t find the right vocalist on our own. I contacted Robert back and even tough his web page didn’t mention a vocalist, he recommended Samuel Krausz. We wasn’t sure about Sam because he didn’t have much material for us to listen to in the way of wedding music. Please, if you are looking for a wonderful guitarist and a vocalist to go along with him, don’t deprive yourself of these two. I think everyone at our wedding came up and told my wife and I how amazing they sounded. Thank you Robert and Sam, we would hire you again in a heartbeat. Tammy and Steph BoydSent on 10/18/2019

Robert and the rest of the string group we hired for our wedding were absolutely outstanding! Not only did they drive 2 hours to our venue, but they also managed to improvise and still find a way to play at our outdoor ceremony even though it was raining. Robert was very responsive anytime I had any questions, and was willing to personally compose some specific songs we wanted to hear. His pricing is also very reasonable in comparison to other vendors I had looked at. Would highly recommend!Sent on 10/02/2018
