“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.”

David Means
Member, Flynn Theater Programming Committee, Burlington, VT

“It was a pleasure to host the Robin Gottfried Band here in the Tap Room at Switchback. They brought a bright and positive energy that perfectly matched the vibe in the building. Their music had folks swaying, smiling and drinking. Three ingredients for an excellent Friday evening.”

Bar Manager, The Tap Roon, Switchback Brewery, Burlington, VT

“Robin brings melodic harmonies and thoughtful lyrics to his stage show, and with his band, the sound is elevated to a pleasing soundtrack for anyone seeking an enjoyable night out.”

Beckie Sheloske, Owner, Charlie O’s, Montpelier

“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.”
