Biography

Geoff Robb is the owner of this website and has many years of experience at providing background music for events. He started the guitar at the age of 11, and began making a living entirely from his music at the age of 18 whilst travelling in Europe as a street musician for 2 years.

He studied classical guitarist under Paul Gregory (winner of the International Segovia Prize), and has had tuition from Gilbert Biberian, Gary Ryan, Roberto Aussell and Roland Dyens.

"Very talented - makes the guitar sound like 2 guitars and a piano"
BBC Southern Counties


He also has a diploma in Jazz, has studied with acoustic guitarist Eric Roche and has released 2 classical solo CDs. His next recording will feature his own compositions for solo guitar.

Geoff has played concerts in the International Guitar Festivals of Great Britain, Nottingham and Lewes, performed with the legendary Herbie Flowers and supported many international touring acts including Eduardo Niebla, Clive Carroll, Tony McManus and Tony Cox (South Africa).

"Geoff Robb - an outstanding guitarist. Every song he played was impeccable and his innovative technique was of the highest standard." The Argus

He has performed as a soloist with The Bath Concertina Orchestra and enjoys regular concerts at festivals including Glastonbury, Edinburgh and Brighton where his shows are always a sell out. He has also given concerts in Ireland and Switzerland.

Geoff is based in Sussex and makes a career through his music, playing concerts and recitals as well as providing beautiful music, both gentle and entertaining for Corporate Functions and Weddings.

As well as looking after his 3 kids, performing and composing, Geoff runs the Classical Guitar Agency and the online store www.guitarcds.net

"A sensitive player" - Bath Chronicle

RECOMMENDATIONS:

"Dear Geoff, thank you for your beautiful playing last night. It was perfect for the occasion - striking just the note of relaxed sophistication that I was hoping to achieve. I only wish I had had 2 pairs of ears - one to listen to you properly and one to listen to my guests. Hope it wasn’t too odd playing amongst the specimen jars!"
Beth, Royal College of Surgeons February 2013

"We wanted to say a huge Thank You for playing at our wedding. You were simply sensational! We were both completely completely blown away and every single one of our guests commented on how brilliant you were. You certainly made a huge impression and really made our wedding day special"
Tom & Samantha, Bury Court Barn, September 2012

"Thank you for playing at our wedding anniversary, the spanish guitar performance was excellent and our guests who play the guitar all commented on your technical ability and the beautiful melodic music. It was a pleasure to listen to these beautiful pieces which definitely enhanced our party."
Anne Donckele-Davis, July 2012

"I just wanted to thank you so much for your performances at Catherine & Will's wedding on saturday - I was so sorry not to thank you personally and to have missed your departure, but I understand that Catherine & Will saw you and thanked you.
Your playing was perfect and I was personally very grateful for your beautiful playing, particularly before the ceremony whilst waiting for Catherine! The pieces we all eventually chose created just the right atmosphere, and many of our guests of all ages commented upon your playing and how much they had enjoyed it. Thank you so much for helping to make Catherine & Will's day so special and memorable."

"I would like to say Thank You, for playing so beautifully at our wedding reception, your music was truly lovely, and provided the perfect background music during our wedding breakfast. We have had many compliments about you, and will certainly be recommending you to others. Thanks again, Geoff."
Caroline & Simon Ellis

"Hi Geoff,
Just wanted to send a quick e mail now we are back from honeymoon to thank you so much for playing at our wedding at Newick Park on the 9th July. A number of people commented on how perfect the music was and how it contributed to the atmosphere of a beautiful summer wedding. Mike and I are both very grateful to you for playing and helping to create some very evocative memories of our wedding.
With kind regards" Kate and Mike Barber

"Geoff played almost continually for the entire evening at a sound level that nicely filled the background and we would recommend him to anyone who wants to have sophisticated live music for a commercial or private event." PF Cope, Marketing Manager, Honda

"Geoff Robb has regularly entertained our guests in our Dining Room. He has also performed at wedding receptions and during the festive season. Whenever he plays I always receive many favourable comments about his music and the quiet and unobtrusive manner with which he entertains our guests. I have always found him to be extremely professional." Graeme Coles, Manager, Shelleys Hotel, Lewes

"Just wanted to say thank you for playing at Cheryl and Rob's wedding last Saturday, you played beautifully and certainly added to the atmosphere of the meal and everyone enjoyed the day (and the sunshine)!! Many thanks once again." Wedding Client

“I just wanted to thank you for the superb performance you provided at our wedding on 14th July at Horsebridge Station. It provided the perfect touch to give our al fresco drinks reception the ambience it needed and during our wedding breakfast a relaxed feel which was just what we wanted. It was a huge privilege to have met you and to have experienced first-hand your extraordinary playing which we were just enchanted by from start to finish, along with our guests.” Emma Cummins
