"We couldn't have been happier to have The Robert Mabe Band play for our son and daughter-in-law's barbecue/rehearsal dinner this past weekend. This group of excellent musicians lent an upbeat, joyful atmosphere to this happy event. These guys are true bluegrass virtuosos. Their fingers fairly flew across those strings. I loved watching them play as much as I enjoyed listening to them.
They began playing and singing at just the right volume for conversation during dinnertime. Later they unplugged and came down to the area where we were playing outdoor games for our continued listening pleasure. They were simply fantastic!"

"The Robert Mabe Band, and Robert Mabe, fulfilled my music and dance and atmosphere dreams for our Vermont Country wedding on August 5th this year.
From our first conversation last winter, through completion, Robert gave me confidence in his experience, and his kindness. I knew he really cared about our experience. I listened to their sounds on the website...and knew the band had a shared expertise, deep talent, and the sound just made me happy. Our guests danced from the first song through the last...they were blown away. The band members looked great, and every time I gazed at them playing they were smiling.
The Robert Mabe Band members were obviously super-talented individuals who come together and play Bluegrass like a gorgeous tapestry...perfect. Great voices, great instrumentation, perfect balance. Absolutely killer fun, unforgettable. Also very responsive by email, very professional during the event, and very friendly to our guests."

"The Robert Mabe Band recently performed at the grand opening of the Fairfield Inn & Suites Richmond/Ashland and they were fantastic! From start to finish Robert’s professionalism made booking this band a breeze.
Upon arrival the guys took a few minutes to setup and test volume, leaving plenty of time to spare before they were scheduled to begin playing. The instruments and microphone looked so cool and the music was great. It created the perfect vibe I was hoping for at my event. I had many attendees ask me to send them the bands contact information, which I have gladly done. If I had the chance to book them again in the future I would do so in a heartbeat!"

..."I wanted to thank you for the outstanding concert! The musicianship, vocals, and songs themselves were excellent. I think what impressed me the most is that the audience – an after-work crowd that I expected would mingle – were immediately captivated by your music. They sat and listened (with heads bobbing and toes tapping at the appropriate times). They were really swept away. Great job by you and the band – and thank you again!"

"Rob and the rest of the band were amazing to work with! Very responsive and professional, an event planner's dream! Our client loved their performance at their rehearsal dinner and I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for this genre of music."

"Robert and his crew were such a pleasure to work with for our Washington, DC wedding. They were very easy going, full of helpful suggestions, and -- most importantly -- the performances (during our ceremony and cocktail hour) were just perfect. It really was everything we wanted and more. We would hire them again in a second and have already recommended them to friends who are getting married next summer."
