Review by Matthew W.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on April 3, 2021From Ball Ground, GA

The Unit was extremely professional. They were prompt, required no assistance from me the host. They are accomplished musicians. Their song catalog ranges from standards to current bluegrass, new outlaw country and ballads. They allow pickers in the audience to come up and play with the band. I could not have envisioned a better experience. I look forward to hosting them again one day. Thanks Allen!!

Allen Tolbert Unit:

Matthew, thank you for having us! Such an amazing gig! The guys had a blast! Allen said “literally, one of the best gigs I’ve ever played” we can’t wait to play for y’all again!!!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on November 9, 2019From Dahlonega, GA

We hired Allen and the band for our wedding in the North Georgia mountains and from beginning to end our experience working with them was top notch. They stayed in touch, worked hard to have every song we asked for ready to go, and were an absolute pleasure to work with in every way. I could focus on all the other wedding details because they made their part so easy! Not to mention that their musical skill exceeded my expectations - the entertainment was INCREDIBLE!!! Every guest commented on what great musicians they were and how much fun they had dancing. They are truly talented and I would never hesitate to hire them again! A++++

Rehearsal DinnerReviewed on October 18, 2019From Alexander City, AL

These guys are incredible musicians! We had them play for our rehearsal dinner and they were absolutely incredible. From working with them to book to their performance on the day of, everything was seamless and easy. Despite not having a ton of light on the stage, they made everything work and even came in under the gazebo at the end of the night for an acoustic performance, which made the night really special. Would absolutely recommend these guys for any event!

Allen Tolbert Unit:

Thank you so much! We had a blast playing for your rehearsal dinner! We appreciate the hospitality!

Corporate FunctionReviewed on June 21, 2019From Huntsville, AL

If I could give this group more than 5 stars, I would. From the moment I contacted them to the end of their performance, they were completely professional, friendly and eager to please - and their talent, WOW! They were amazing! I would book them again without question.

Private PartyReviewed on October 26, 2018From Fitzpatrick, AL

In the midst of a very hectic wedding weekend for my daughter, the Allen Tolbert Unit was by far the easiest part of the logistics. Easy to book thru Gigmasters, Immediately replied with details, showed up on time, great music, outstanding personalities, and just an overall great experience. I look forward to using them again soon.

Family ReunionReviewed on September 29, 2018From Guntersville, AL

It was an extreme pleasure having Mr. Tolbert at our reunion. He has amazing talent and is an awesome and very entertaining man. He mingled with us, got to know us a little and allowed us to get to know him, something I and my family value greatly. He is friendly, funny, a great conversationalist and his music is not to be missed if one has the opportunity to hear them play. I only regret that there was not more time with him, and that is on me. Next time, I will not make the mistake of not hiring them for more time. I didn't want it to end. My sincere gratitude goes to Mr. Tolbert and I hope he will be willing to do it again next year! He made the party!!!

Grand OpeningReviewed on March 25, 2017From Clanton, AL

These guys are awesome! If you would like to have tremendous entertainers at your next event these are your guys. We had a crowd of 2300 people and all loved listening to these guys. They have a natural ability to connect with their guest and have a knack for feeling cues from the host through body language or eye contact. To put it bluntly... these guys "get it", cant say enough about the quality of the experience that all of our guest received that day!

The Allen Tolbert Unit was AMAZING! I want to have them on speed dial for more events. Breanna responded so quickly and kept in touch with me all the way up until the event date. All of our guests enjoyed the music so much. A. Harris

CelebrationReviewed on June 24, 2017From Birmingham, AL

The Allen Tolbert Unit did a great job performing at our Customer Appreciation Day. We had several hundred guest and many complimented us on our choice of the band. Though the weather was very hot and humid the band continued to play with very little rest. They were great!!!!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on August 8, 2014From Birmingham, AL

Absolutely wonderful. Hired them to play at my sister's reception. They were so helpful and sweet. By far the most accommodating/worry-free vendor we dealt with. Would hire them a million times over. Can not recommend highly enough. Perfect experience. Music was great.

ConventionReviewed on April 11, 2013From Birmingham, AL

Our group thoroughly enjoyed having the Allen Rolbert Unit entertain us during our Women's Conference at the Wynfrey. Certainly, we would recommend then to anyone who loves bluegrass music and excellent musicianship. A wonderful time was had by all.

WeddingReviewed on September 28, 2013From Sale Creek, TN

The perfect music for our barn wedding! Everyone was so pleased and had such a good time - the music was awesome! These guys are so talented and so nice! Overall we had a great experience and would absolutely hire them again. They were so accommodating - they even let my godmother and our officiants sing/play some songs, which was really special to us. Thanks Allen Tolbert Unit for the wonderful tunes! We are still getting compliments on how great the music was!

Anniversary PartyReviewed on August 3, 2013From Huntsville, AL

Allen Talbert Unit was very professional and they went out of their way to to please the bride and her family. They were able to learn a new song to play for the first dance. This group is simply the best. Feel Free to hire them with confidence because they are the best Bluegrass Band out there......

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on July 6, 2013From Tremont, MS

Great Experience!!! They came and set up early and stayed late. Very accommodating in spacing out their playing time for special things going on at our party. Extremely talented musicians and were happy to play requests. They did classic blue grass and some older country songs as requested. I highly recommend them.
