Rob was absolutely amazing. Such a gentleman by nature, his performance was better than I could have wanted. He made the birthday girl feel very special. All of the guests loved his performance I hope to book rob again for any similar future events.

The process to book and communicate with Rob was seamless. He has a great voice. His performance was perfect for our awards night, he played in the background whilst everyone was able to enjoy the evening and socialise. Would highly recommend Rob for any occasion. Thanks Rob!
