What fans are saying...

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. ”

I am the promoter for two bluegrass festivals, the Darrington Bluegrass Festival in Darrington WA and the Bannock County Bluegrass Festival in Pocatello, ID. Robert Mabe and his band has played at both festivals. They headlined the Bannock Co. Festival in 2016 and played the Darrington Festival this past July. This band is steeped in traditional bluegrass music and is a real audience pleaser. Their musicianship, singing and harmonies are amazing. Robert Mabe is the band leader. He does most of the singing and is a very accomplished banjo player. I received many compliments regarding the Robert Mabe Band and I hope they will come back again sometime and play at both festivals. ”
