August 2014 - Wedding duet with violinist Madeline Langdon (

"Working with Madeline during the planning of my wedding was a breeze. She was extremely helpful when it came to song choice selection for our ceremony and when I requested a song other than the wedding march or Canon in D, is was open and excited to do so. One of mine and my husband's favourite part of the ceremony was when she and Robbie played A Thousand Years while we were signing our papers. Though it wasn't part of her repertoire when I inquired about it, they did a beautiful rendition of the song which guests had commented to us later in the day. Without hesitation I would recommend Madeline (& co) to anyone looking for a talented, reliable and easy to work with musician!"

June 2009 - Solo wedding performance:

"Robbie performed for us during our wedding ceremony on June 27, 2009.  He had an extensive list of suitable songs for us to chose from.  Robbie was on time, professional, and played very well.  We would highly recommend Robbie as a musician."
