That was great having Rob for the night. We had a teenager private party in a club and Rob came with his LED bongos and another percussion table to add some rythm on top of our DJ. This was an amazing "add-on" to the party and it really brought lots of excitment on the dance floor ! Rob is very professional, with excelent communication prior to the event, great ponctuality and not counting his time playing on the day. We will definitely use him again !

I booked Rob for my best friend Hardeep's wedding reception and it's fair to say, he absolutely smashed it. All the guests loved the vibe that the live drums brought and the fact that they have flashing lights inside adds another visual element that looked amazing!

Rob was the resident Friday night percussionist at Lola Lo Brighton where I worked as the door hostess. Every week without fail I would have people coming up to me saying how much fun they had and how cool it was that we had a live percussionist. Rob really helped to provide a great atmosphere for all the guests coming to the club.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

It's not a problem at all! I will always try to be as flexible on timings aa possible to ensure your night goes exactly the way you want it to.

How much time do you need to set up?

It's always safe to allow an hour for set up time but usually I can be in the venue and set up within about half an hour.
