We could not have imagined a better band for our wedding than Robert Mabe band. They came through after our first band cancelled on us; I'm honestly SO glad it worked out that way because everyone had such a blast! Robert was helpful and responsive leading up to our wedding. The band played unplugged during cocktail hour and then plugged in for the reception, and even though few people in the crowd had any idea how to dance to bluegrass, we soon had a whole crowd on the floor. Everyone commented on how great they sounded and asked where we had found them. I am so grateful for their professionalism and even more so their great musical chops and rapport with the crowd! ”

Wow, words can hardly describe our experience with the Robert Mabe Band. They were in one word, outstanding. The band was highly accommodating and communication was top notch. Everyone who attended our wedding made a point to compliment our choice of band. The music was fantastic and enjoyed by all. I would highly recommend the Robert Mabe Band to anyone looking for an authentic, original band to play for their event. Cheers.”

These guys were awesome! My wife and I booked them to play our wedding ceremony and reception. They were very communicative throughout the whole process, from booking to logistics, to planning the music. They even learned our first dance song, which was really cool. At one point in the night, I got up on the stage to make a special request. They told me they didn't know the song, but that I could play it if I could play guitar. So they let me up on stage and handed me a guitar to play and they followed along. An unforgettable experience - would highly recommend.”

Thank you Robert! You and your group were terrific and we heard from many of our guests that the music really made the event. Thanks for everything!”

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.”

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.”
