Bobby is a joy to work with! Not only is he a great musician, he is a true professional. He knows what to play and when to play it. Bobby has played several times at Pineola Farms – the guest and our Directing Staff are always impressed. We always suggest him to our clients who are considering live music at their wedding.
Finding a really good guitar teacher these days isn’t easy. I love everything about my guitar lessons with Bobby, and regret only that it took me two years in Macon to find him. He offers total unsparing honesty as it pertains to music. He has high expectations, but if you demand the same ones of yourself, you will grow quickly as a musician.

As a Minister of Music, I find that rehearsal time with an orchestra is not always easy to come by because of time and budgetary constraints, so I rely very heavily upon the skills of the players I hire and trust that they will always be prepared to make music of the highest quality in a limited amount of time. I decided after working with Bobby and Emily once that there was never any need to look elsewhere for guitar or percussion, and have since worked with them consistently over the past three years. I am always impressed by their professionalism, musicality, improvisational skills, and overall great attitudes. You could not ask for two finer musicians and I am grateful for the opportunities I have had to work with them.

When I was deciding what I wanted for my ceremony, I knew I wanted live musicians that were professional, easy to work with, and able to do classical and modern pieces as well. I contacted more than one group with varying instruments, several of which were impersonal and wanted to charge me a lot of extra fees. Emily and Bobbi were quick to respond, provided me with a huge selection list that more than met my needs, and allowed me the flexibility to create my program that fit my budgetary needs. Emily kept in touch regularly so we were always on the same page, and was kind and understanding of what I wanted. She was more of a friend than a vendor for my wedding, and I really valued that! When it came time for our big day, I couldn’t have been happier! The music was beautiful and exactly what I wanted! Everyone commented about how perfect everything turned out, and how great the atmosphere was. Emily and Bobbi were a big part of that! Thanks for making my day extra special!

I was a fairly indecisive bride but I knew the feel I wanted for our outdoor ceremony. I compiled a list of songs I loved and Bobby and Emily did the rest (which was great as I was somewhat stressed with all of the seemingly endless wedding decisions!) The result was beautiful and unique and I am still receiving compliments on the music for the ceremony and cocktail reception.Bobby and Emily were highly professional, expertly prepared, versatile and accommodating – in general, an absolute pleasure to work with. I highly recommend them to all of the brides to be looking to add a special detail to your big day!
