Robert Mabe is a stellar banjo player, singer/songwriter, from the hills of North Carolina.
As a young banjo player in North Carolina, Robert had the opportunity to learn from and perform with many great bluegrass and old time banjo players as the area was and still is a hot-bed of musicians.
His unique style covers a wide range of music from straight ahead buegrass to jazz, irish, and roots music.
In 2016 Robert released his latest album, "Somewhere in the Middle". The album, written and produced by Robert, showcases Roberts versitile songwriting skills and includes an all star cast of musicians.
"Somewhere in the Middle" also caught the attention of Bluegrass Today and Bluegrass Unlimited who both published rave reviews and high praise of the project.
Robert has been touring steadily for several years both in the US and abroad. He has recorded and shared the stage with some of the greats in bluegrass music.
In addition to playing dozens of festivals each year, Robert has performed at Carnegie Hall, The Canadian Embassy, IBMA 2016, and private events for Secretary Madeline Albright.
Robert is also endorsed by GHS Strings.

Robert and his band were AWESOME!! Great communication beforehand and his calm demeanor quickly puts you at ease. They showed up SUPER early to get everything set up. Once the music started, they kept everyone on the dance floor for over 2 hours! Fantastic energy, fun music and great people to work with. They played the 2 songs we wanted and the rest of the set list was a total surprise and they do a great job reading the crowd. Book these guys!!!

Robert Mabe Band was fantastic! They were a big hit at our wedding. They did a completely acoustic set in the woods for our ceremony and it was perfect. Robert was so accommodating with my reception because we didn't know if we would want them to end up playing outside (if it was warm enough) or if everyone ended up at the bonfire. He was willing to work with either scenario depending on how it went. Turned out, everyone wanted to keep dancing so they brought the house down inside! :)

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.

WOW! My husband and I simply don't have the words! The Robert Mabe Band garnered SO many compliments from our guests, and completely set the atmosphere for our wedding! Robert was so accommodating and easy to work with, my only regret was not getting to introduce myself and thank them in person! We cannot recommend them highly enough!

Robert Mabe Band was EXACTLY what we wanted for our wedding reception!! They performed amazing songs and even learned our chosen song for the first dance and played it perfectly. Our guests were extremely complementary of their talent and really enjoyed the atmosphere it created. THANK YOU to the band for making our night so special!

A duo from the Robert Mabe band (one guitar, one banjo) just performed at a faculty, staff, alumni BBQ on our small campus -- Emory & Henry College. The music was fantastic and received very high praise from many at the event. Robert and band are extremely professional, communicative, flexible, and a pleasure to work with. These are very high quality musicians, so we definitely got our money's worth. They played the perfect set for the size of our crowd at the perfect volume. I'd really like hearing the whole band sometime. We will certainly invite them to come back to E&H again! Thanks Robert and band!

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.

Robert Mabe Band is AWESOME! Easy to work with, great price, very talented, and experienced. Robert made an effort to get to know us and understand what we wanted for our wedding day. They are a great bluegrass band and they were super friendly with our guests. We got so many compliments from our guests. They played an acoustic set at our apple orchard wedding during dinner - it was just as charming as it sounds. Perfect!!

Robert Mabe Band was excellent and SO fun to have at our wedding. Robert was very reassuring, flexible, and easy to talk to throughout the planning process. They were accommodating in playing songs that we requested, yet also recommended appropriate songs when we weren't sure. They played during the ceremony, cocktail hour, and dancing. Everyone was dancing! All the band members were very friendly and seemed to be genuinely having a great time too! We are so glad that we booked Robert Mabe Band for our wedding - much better and more unique than getting a DJ. Thanks!

We were so genuinely impressed with the quality of the performance. The band is so unique and talented. I would highly recommend Drymill Road for anyone planning a fun backyard event. They played traditional bluegrass beats and mixed it up with some Grateful Dead and Talking Heads. Everyone who attended (and even some neighbors who didn't) were highly complementary of the band. I would definitely use them for a future event. What a great, laid back group of performers. They even left me with a great CD to remember the occassion.
