h_birchwood An excellent performer who really cared about the residents. He was lovely with them, keeping them fully involved. A very good selection of songs and he has a lovely voice.

stuartlow  A great presentation. Very lively and self – deprecating with a good sense of humour. This belies what a splendid performer he is. He kept our members entertained throughout.

 His in – between songs patter is very funny. Great vocal performance and a good selection of songs. Our members were delighted to see him back.

Speaking as a professional singer myself, I pride myself on recognising quality in performing. Rob’s way with a melody and the shaping of vocal phrases was excellent. He conveyed the emotions of the songs too. I really enjoyed listening to him.

colin  He came onstage alone to sing “My Heart Will Go On”. It must have been horribly nerve – wracking on such an emotionally charged day. He pulled it off brilliantly. I was welling up….

inherittheearth Robb E Retro succeeds in re-working the classic Houston Wells track “Only The Heartaches” by offering a compelling performance of this song.

 A brilliant interpretation and performance of “Only The Heartaches” which is like an impassioned melding of Slim Whitman on speed meets Joe Meek. That says it all really.

jetandbruce  I know that we have become friends. Nothing personal – but if you aren’t good enough, you’re not getting up on stage with me.

mlenny  I handed him some really tricky and extremely high backing harmony vocals. I was amazed when he successfully tackled his lines with considerable aplomb.

westernstar Robb stepped in for Mike Read with just two days’ notice. The way he handled the 600+ audience in the packed theatre – particularly during an unscheduled near – 10 minute technical hiatus was not only extremely professional – it was astonishing. I take my hat off to him.
