“The Robin Gottfried Band is a 4-piece group of professionals that will have you moving your chair for a better listen. Their repertoire ranges from tasteful originals to fantastic covers that most bands don’t have the chops to perform. If you’re looking for a band that holds their own identity while pleasing everyone in the room the Robin Gottfried Band is for you.”

I booked the Robin Gottfried Band for our community concerts in the park. On the night of the performance, I usually walk around selling raffle tickets which allows me to get feedback about the bands. We have anywhere between 200-300 attendees and the feedback from everyone was wonderful. They were great! People could hear them, the quality of the sound was amazing and their song choices are all very upbeat. I would highly recommend them as well as I will definitely hire them again for future gigs.

Many folks can learn an instrument, study how to read music and play the many notes that comprise a tune. Yet experiencing the muse of Robin Gottfried takes this skill set and engages a particular magical intangible. Robin and the band have a certain undefinable cadence or ability to reach into the heart of a song and emote an unmistakable feeling of inclusion within an audience. From originals to choice cover songs this music leaves people joyous and refreshed in the sense that people are liberated to laugh, cry and feel again! Masterful and tight the Robin Gottfried experience can light up the darkest night!

“His complex and finely detailed arrangements waste not a single note or phrase. He’s somehow both flashy and efficient.”
“… Gottfried is the genuine article, plying his trade with a refreshing lack of irony and pretense. The latest example of the man’s songsmithing is his ninth album, Other Side of the Rain.
Robin Gottfried remains one of the most dedicated, honest musicians and composers I know. His songs are meticulously crafted, with a solid nod to the immersion and experience of both a master of his craft and an honest, open exposition of his own thoughts.

“The Robin Gottfried Band is conscientious and professional. They play a great mix of classic nostalgic rock as well as catchy original material. Perfect for venues big and small. They present a sound robust enough to fill a larger space and yet comfortable for an intimate venue.”

“I’ll be concise: these guys rock! They play a great selection of their own original material and covers. Their rendition of After Midnight is awesome and memorable.”
