REVIEWS:
"Rob had played at my birthday party last summer and he was magnificent. Every guest complimented us on our choice of entertainment...he was just terrific. Fast forward 5 months and I called him to ask if he would be willing to volunteer his time to play at my daughters' elementary school during a week long celebration of visual & performing arts. He played two sets - one for preK-2nd grade and one for 3rd-5th grade. The kids loved him...he was a rock star! Not only did he play popular and fun songs that the students sang along to but he showed the kids how he plays and the technology he uses all the while telling his own personal story in a fun and personable way. The teachers and staff were absolutely thrilled with him too! I wanted the students to see how someone could continue their passion throughout all stages and events in life - high school, college, college football, starting a business, etc.
Honestly, he could be the next greatest performer for kids but, thankfully, he's still happy and excited to play for adults too!"
Sonig- Private Party

"We thoroughly enjoyed having Rob play at our daughter's grad party. He has a beautiful tone to his voice and his warmth comes through in his music. Everyone, including my 19 year old son who listens to rap most of the day, my 80 something year old mother-in-law and I, all, loved Rob's music...and that is no easy task! His music was melodic and upbeat and perfect for a dinner party where you are still able to enjoy conversation with everyone at your table. Rob is easy going and very accommodating, even when guests and the host want to take the mike to sing! He will accompany them on guitar...which he plays beautifully. I highly recommend Rob to take your party to the next level!"
Susan- Private Party

“We have had Rob Ranney perform here at Kirkbrae Country Club several times over the past year. Rob created a great atmosphere with each performance and left a great impression on the customers leaving them asking for more! He is very professional when both performing and through the booking process. We look forward to having Rob back soon!”
Cheryl & Matt- Lead & Assistant Dining Managers at Kirkbrae Country Club

"Rob played at my restaurant this summer. His music, his professional as well as personal touch were a melody to the crowds that came to see him play. Dealing with Rob was a pleasure. I would like to have him back next summer when our patio reopens."
Paul Bullock- Chef/Owner at Tav-vino Restaurant

"Your music and voice complimented our event in a way that is difficult to express in words! Nearly everyone I spoke to at the party asked who you were, and where we found you. Your great charisma, soothing tone, and musicality are truly magical. Your name will be on top of our list for any future gatherings or gigs. I am a huge fan, and excited to watch you succeed!"

Your search is over. Book Rob now!! We booked him for our November, 2015 wedding in Lenox and we can't stop talking about him. He is THAT good! First, his professionalism and responsiveness is spot on. Even more importantly, his talent is off the charts incredible. We selected a Jack Johnson song as a recessional at the ceremony and his timing was perfect and his delivery exceptional. He wowed us during cocktail hour with upbeat tunes and then mellowed it out for dinner as we requested. He learned a song for our first dance and then got the party going after dinner. We can't say enough great things about him! I may plan a party just to hear him again! Book him now!

I cannot even put into words what a perfectly wonderful experience it was to work with Rob. He was professional, kind and talented. We had our ceremony atop a mountain and Rob was willing to pack up all his gear and bring it to the summit--he worked directly with the event coordinator to do so and it went flawlessly. A number of people approached me during and after the wedding to say how talented he is and how wonderfully his voice and style worked for the wedding. Even our other wedding vendors were gushing over him. I would venture that, regardless of the event you're booking for, you won't be disappointed with Rob.

Words can't accurately describe the joy that Rob brought to our wedding reception. He was an absolute blessing! Guests are still asking “Who was that guy?” He set the tone for what was planned as a casual wedding on the rooftop at Lord Jeffery Inn in Amherst, MA. His instrumentals during and after the wedding ceremony were perfectly played, providing the start to a truly outstanding evening. He delivered soft current/contemporary ballads to start and finished with more danceable classic favorites. Rob is an unbelievable musician, and even a better human being! Do yourself a favor. Look no further. Rob Ranney will take any function from good to OUTSTANDING!!

Rob played during our lunch reception recently. When I heard him play for the first time, I dropped my lunch to take a look, because I couldn't believe my ears! He has a very smooth voice, has a great repertoire, great at ad libbing, and created a laid back and fun atmosphere for our reception. Our guests have raved about his performance and song selection. In our table, we found ourselves occasionally saying, "oh my gosh!" because we couldn't believe how good he was. He was also very easy to work with and talk to throughout the planning process. His videos don't do him enough justice!

We were absolutely delighted to have Rob Ranney as part of my husband's 40th birthday celebration! He was friendly, accommodating and incredibly talented. Rob knew just how to interact with our friends and family - and had most of them dancing by the end of the night.Rob took requests and knew exactly how to roll with the flow of the party. I cannot thank Rob enough for making our party incredibly fun, exciting and a very special memory that we will reminisce for years to come. We will not hesitate to recommend him and he'll be our first call for our next celebration. Thanks, Rob!

Where do I even begin? Rob is the complete package. He blew us all away at my mothers 50th surprise party this past Saturday night. Our guests could not stop talking about how wonderful he was. His voice is one in a million. He sang a number of different songs and he nailed each and everyone of them. His song selections were perfect, there was something for everyone. Not only does Rob have an amazing voice but he also has a wonderful personality. He was extremely personable and made everyone feel so comfortable. We couldn't have been any happier with Rob and his entertainment. My fiancé and I couldn't let him leave without booking him for our wedding. Thank you Rob!

Rob was absolutely fantastic! We loved him & hope to have him back sometime. Rob's voice is so mellow & beautiful & he was very accommodating. He actually learned a new song, on the spot, for a couple that had recently married. This was the wedding dance they did not get to enjoy the day of their wedding. Sunday morning (casual) brunch was the setting to celebrate special birthdays as well. It felt like a small café in my friends living room. Rob helped me surprise my friends with this gift by walking in playing guitar & singing "Birthday" by the Beatles. He came in with a huge smile & my friends were very impressed. Rob made a lovely birthday brunch memorable.

My daughter needed a soloist for her Catholic Church Wedding. I searched the internet, found Gigmasters, listened to many musicians, and was immediately impressed with the Guitar skills and voice of Rob. The videos were all contemporary, the settings were for "entertainment" purpose, but there was something about his tenor voice that assured me he could sing/play Wedding ceremony music and parts of the Catholic Mass. I can best sum up the outcome in this way: my daughter sat right in front of me and my wife, and when Rob began to play and sing the responsorial psalm (Taste and See) Jen turned to us with a HUGE smile and whispered "Thank You Daddy"! THANK YOU ROB!
