Check out the new and updated live recordings that are on the media samples page. 20 songs that cross multiple genres.

From recent Gigmasters events: "Robert did an amazing job at my wedding reception! He was always quick to respond to messages leading up to the big day, very professional, reasonably priced, but most of all extremely talented and kept everyone entertained! He even learned our first dance song, Bryan Adams, "Everything I do" and it was absolutely beautiful! I've probably watched the video a dozen times over the last few days. He slowed down Trace Adkins, "Just Fishing" for my dad and I, and it was such a memorable moment for us...I think we had the whole room in tears. Robert was great at feeling out the crowd and knowing when to keep it upbeat or play some slow songs. We couldn't have been happier!" -Kristi G, Springfield, TN (gig ID# 2345453)

"We used Robert for our wedding ceremony and reception this past Labor Day weekend. He was awesome! He played acoustic for our ceremony music and also played acoustic and DJ music during our reception. He was very accommodating and prompt to respond to all my emails. He MC'd our reception as well and provided a hologram and lights for the dance floor. He even let me and my friends sing on stage with him! He was amazing and I would recommend him to anyone looking to book a singer or DJ for their event! I cant say enough great things about him!!" -Brittney N, Helena, AL (gig ID# 2278659)

"Working with Robert and his band was an amazing experience. They played at my wedding last weekend and made our ceremony AND reception unforgettable experiences. People were on the dance floor all night long, they accommodated all of our requests, and were all around a pleasure to work with. We coordinated this wedding in Georgia from Ohio and Robert was there to help us through every step of the music planning. Book him now!" -Susan C, Acworth, GA (gig ID# 2615104)

Robert has over 20 years of fine-tuning an Acoustic/One-Man Band Show that can be tailored to your event. If you need a wedding reception or birthday party and want something simple, this show could be what you are looking for. OR if you desire the sound of a band with lights and and dance floor for a fraction of the price of a full band, it could be what you are looking for as well. The show consists of music you know and love and if its not on the list, past clients will attest that it can get done for you. Country, Rock, Acoustic Rock, Classic Rock, 80s, 90s....and more. Over 500 songs in the catalog.

"Robert was the hit of the party. My guests ages ranged from 6 months to 70 and his Southern charm, wide genre of songs, and beautiful voice made this 50th birthday party one me and my guests will always remember. Robert was very accommodating and let some of the younger crowd play dance music from their Smart Phones during a break. The owner of the restaurant came and listened to the last set and ask for his business card and so did my nieces who are in college and book events for their sororities. Outstanding and I can't wait to book him again! -Kim K, Cropwell, AL (gig ID# 1985669)"

"He was amazing! We had such a blast listening and even singing with him! He MADE the party! We will definitely will be referring him to everyone and hiring him again! Thank you so much Robert! -Casey C, Cullman, AL (gig ID# 1817734)

First of all this guy is a trooper, it was 92 blazing hot and humid and he was still amazing. I kept forgetting to bring a fan to him and he kept on singing. Second, his voice is like butter. Smooth. We were all entranced by his sound. I had so many wedding guest want to know who he was. It was too hot to dance so we just enjoyed listening. I didn't want him to leave. Third, he sang every song I asked him to. One song was 4 days notice. He sang some of his own music which I absolutely adored and other artist and his version was beautiful, lots of tears. Robert, we will be calling you back. I just hope you will come after we tortured you.

I am SO glad I went with the Robert Abernathy Band! We had a small beach wedding & he traveled all the way there from Birmingham for it! I only hired for two guys instead of a full band because of our guest count, but you never would have guessed there were only two playing! The music was AMAZING! They had every person there on the dance floor. He was so accommodating and played songs I requested that were not on his playlist. He gave me his personal number and always answered me quickly! All of my guests were so impressed with them (and so was I)! We will definitely be contacting them again if we ever need to throw another party!

Robert Abernathy Rock the House!!!! Originally planned on him playing on an outdoor deck overlooking the river, but about 3 songs in the weather didn't cooperate and it started raining. No need to worry, we took him indoors to a large lodge and went totally acoustic and raised the roof! Would definitely do it all over again and he became part of the family in a very short amount of time. Loved having him participate in the 9 family fish fry and it was on ALL NIGHT! Even Joe Exotic broke out of prison for the weekend just for the fun! Thanks again Robert!!!
