Wedding Guitarist Hire Greater Manchester - Rob
Solo acoustic guitarist Rob, performs intimate well-crafted arrangements of favourite romantic and up-tempo songs. The inspiration comes from the traditional classical guitarist but focusing the repertoire on the contemporary hits and the classic songs that most clients have grown up with and enjoy listening to today. Song choices focus on themes of love and happiness - care has been taken to avoid anything dark or serious, keeping a feel-good theme throughout.
Arrangements are perfectly suited to creating lovely backdrop. They are unobtrusive whilst celebrating the song, interesting enough to listen to attentively and equally perfect for sitting in the background whilst guests chat. They are designed to work perfectly for wedding, wether it be in the ceremony, drinks reception or wedding breakfast. The sets are equally ideal for other events including dinner parties, gala dinners, charity events and funerals.
Rob is a guitarist with many years performance experience in a range of different styles. He has a BA(Hons) degree in Popular Music and Recording and has played for clients for years as part of an acoustic jazz duo and in a function/party band as well as a solo guitarist. Additionally he has worked for years as a guitar tutor privately and in schools. Rob aims to couple excellent music with a professional approach and a high level of customer service and communication to help to make your event as special as possible.
Working With Rob
After booking, Rob will make contact with you at least a month before the event to fine-tune the arrangements. Here you can discuss timings, song choices and any logistical information. After this Rob will still be contactable should you have further questions. On the day he will arrive around an hour before he is due to start playing, giving enough time to set up equipment and then change into a suit for performance.
Please note that Rob's arrangements are instrumental, so there is no singing. Also due to the intimate nature of the arrangements it is perfect for creating a musical backdrop but not a suitable replacement for a band or DJ for a disco/dance type event.
It was amazing having you play our wedding it really made the atmosphere magical. Thank you so much!Marie and Neil Jarvis
Having Rob play at our wedding was truly beautiful. He exceeded our expectations in every way and worked with us to make our day unique and special. Guests complemented the romantic atmosphere created by Rob from arrival and during the wedding breakfast. Nothing was ever too much for Rob and his friendly and flexible approach allowed us to select a set of instrumental music that was classic and modern. A real bonus as our guests have such varying music tastes so there really was something for everyone. Rob is a truly talented guitarist and we would highly recommend to anyone wanting to make their wedding or event magical. Rosheene & Christopher Crawley
I loved having Rob play at my daughter's wedding. Knowing him personally as a student I knew how accomplished a musician he was and was confident his passion for music would shine through. He did not disappoint. All the guests remarked at how good he was. His music was the perfect addition to my daughter's special day. I would highly recommend him to anybody else looking for a wedding guitarist.Stephen Coyne
Rob played solo at my wedding, his playing just added to a perfect day. His choice of songs, his delivery and his professionalism stood out. How I wish I had as much natural ability. I would recommend him to anyone, without hesitation.Gwynfor Roberts
We hosted a small garden wedding for 50 people at our home. Rob was just the perfect musician for such an event. He played for the cocktail hour and dinner. Rob’s music created a beautiful atmosphere for the event. His sets included both classic and modern songs, all very much tied to the romance of the wedding. Rob is also a really lovely guy, very easy work with. I recommend him highly.Joyce White
Thanks very much for playing our birthday party last week. I wanted to write to say how much we all enjoyed the music you played from classic Sinatra to fantastic interpretations of modern songs. Each song was played with such passion and originality that you had our guests talking about the music for long into the night. The music was a perfect accompaniment to our garden cocktail party!Damian O' Doherty & Hannah Knox
Rob was absolutely brilliant. His act was the perfect chilled out start to the evening we were hoping for and he even managed to perform a special track which he had learned for the occasion. I would not hesitate to recommend Rob and found him a real pleasure to work with.Tina East - Party, Private Address
Rob played at our wedding on 5th June 2021. During the lead up to our wedding Rob was in contact with us and took the time to understand and talk through our plans for the day. He was really accommodating in playing our song requests on the day. All of our guests have commented how brilliant Rob was and made our ceremony and drinks reception even more special. Could not recommend Rob highly enough! "Kathryn & Luke - Wedding
