He was a charming young man who was extremely anxious to please. I have had very positive feedback from my guests who enjoyed his accomplished playing, and also chatting to him in his (to our Yorkshire ears) 'foreign' Lancashire accent. He certainly made my party one to remember and I would recommend him as a wonderful musician for any occasion. Thanks for all your help.

We can't recommend Robbie more highly. We were so pleased with his performances and he was a pleasure to meet and work with. Robbie had a really professional and friendly relaxed approach from start to finish and his music added the perfect tone to our day. Not surprisingly, many guests mentioned throughout the day (and since) how accomplished Robbie is, and we will definitely be looking him up in the future. Thanks for everything!
