"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!"

"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!"

"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!"

"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."

"Rob was unbelievable! His music was awesome. He read the crowd and really put on a great show! He took requests and played music we could dance to. We had many compliments from our guests saying what a great voice he had and asking where we found him. We would absolutely hire him again for a future event. Rob was also very personable and sent a very nice email the following day. I think he enjoyed being at our party as much as we enjoyed having him there. Thank you again Rob. See you next year! :) "
"Rob is FANTASTIC! Arrived ready to play whatever the crowd was feeling. Very adaptive to his audiences. Great attitude. Will definitely work with him again! "
"Rob did an excellent job! Many people commented on his songs and how he created a nice mood for the party...in fact, many people asked how they could contact him for their parties! I would highly recommend him to anyone. "
"Rob played at for a 40th birthday party in Falmouth MA. He arrived early, despite having to brave the Bourne Bridge on a Saturday evening in the summertime. The bulleted list: 1. His voice and guitar playing seemed effortless. 2. He dominated everything from county music favorites or top 40 hip hop. 3. He played music that was engaging to all of our guests...ranging in age from 3y/o to 91 y/o. 4. He had people dancing! Have you seen people dance to a guitar plate. 5. He took a request that he happened to not know and TAUGHT himself on the spot! AWESOME! 6. He took photos and emailed us a beautiful collage of the evening! Ultimately, ROB IS AWESOME!"
"AMAZING! My guests were blown away by Rob talent.Rob has a personal touch and the light just shines through him. He has a beautiful tone to his voice -his warmth comes through in his music.The atmosphere he created was relaxing and left a great impression.I had a 4 hr event Rob played an extra hour without being asked.When asked why he was still playing his response was he didn’t want to spoil the mood.Rob is a gifted musician/song writer. Following the event Rob sent me a thank you email where he shared photographs he had taken for sake of memory.He is also an accomplished cinematographer and gifted photographer.We adored Rob, Kelly – Private Party Huge fan!!"
"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!"
“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!”
"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."
"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!"
