The band was very good, but they were not on time to set up and were over half an hour late causing undue stress before our big event. The band leader had a last minute emergency come up but did not deem his absence worthy enough to reach out to me by email or phone to let me know that he had made a substitution and did not provide me with a new contact for the band. I find this rather unacceptable as I'd gone through the trouble of confirming all of the details with him just days before. Overall, I have mixed feelings. The band played just fine and were very nice, but I found that the tardiness and the lack of communication from the band leader left a bad taste.
The Rob Albertson Ensemble is comprised of the best musicians in Atlanta. We have been performing together since 1994 regularly and can play a wide variety of jazz, blues, and popular songs to match the occasion. The group is called an ensemble because we can perform with as little as two musicians/singers all the way up to a large ensemble of twenty or more musicians and singers! It really depends on what is appropriate for the occasion and what the client wants. The Rob Albertson ensemble has played thousands of weddings, corporate events and festivals. All of the musicians hold post-secondary degrees from some of the finest colleges and universities in the country including the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, Indiana University, and the University of Miami. Why does this matter to you? Because the group is capable of arranging almost any song (you need to provide the mp3 or CD for the more obscure stuff). I will also throw in (at no charge to you) a in person consultation at my commercial recording studio - Rare Air Studios, Inc. - or at your place, whichever is more convenient. During the consultation we can discuss what songs you would like to be played (and what you don't want to be played) as well as the environment and atmosphere you want to create and any other details. It's really all about you and what you need - not our stage act. Email me, call or text and I'll get back to you quickly. I personally guarantee that you won't be disappointed.
