“We hired Rob for our end of year event to play an instrumental set and was so pleased we did.  We received many compliments throughout the night and everyone said we should get Rob back for our next event.  Rob was a pleasure to work with and really professional.  He has a lot of skill and talent and I can’t recommend him enough”.

"Rob did an excellent job at our recent Corporate Event. He arrived in plenty of time to set up and instantly put me, as the organiser, at ease. It was the hottest day of the year, in a listed building which had no air-con and yet somehow he managed to remain professional, entertaining our guests in what I can only say were extreme weather conditions! I would highly recommend Rob. His playlist is never ending, with something for everyone and was played at the perfect volume so not to encroach on the guests who were mingling and chatting. Thank you again Rob, great job from The Momentum Team!"

"We booked Rob for our wedding in the Lake District and asked him to play at both the church and the reception afterwards. Rob did an excellent job and we were told by all our guests how impressed they were with his playing. Rob made the booking process very easy and was extremely professional and friendly all the way through. We would highly recommend Rob/love guitar! Thank you again from Chris and Emily!"

“Love Guitar aka Rob Shaw recently played at a pre lunch reception for 40 guests in Manchester’s ‘Restaurant MCR’ before we celebrated a birthday lunch.
He impressed to say the least. He arrived early, set up his equipment and did his sound check long before guests began to arrive.
He is a talented musician and added a lot of atmosphere to the start of the lunch, his music choices were spot on for what was a very happy occasion, discreet volume but a definite presence.
He was smart, happy and we would definitely invite him to play at future functions”

"Rob played our wedding in May and we couldn't of asked for more. He set the tone beautifully for our ceremony. He's a genuine, lovely guy and also a fantastic guitarist. Communication was brilliant and he learnt a requested song with no complaints at all. If you are needing a guitarist for your wedding, then look no further as Rob is your man"

“Rob played acoustic guitar, with a choice of songs we were allowed to pick, at our daughter's wedding. It made our daughter's day more special. He was absolutely brilliant and we highly recommend him. An excellent musician, professional and his fee was extremely reasonable in comparison to other musicians we searched the internet for. His service was enhanced by his friendly, professional and helpful manner. We would definitely book him for other special events. ”

"Rob played at our wedding (ceremony & drinks reception) in April and was the consummate professional throughout - easy to work with, great communication. He travelled quite a distance to be with us, which we were very grateful for - it's difficult to find a purely acoustic guitarist! Rob played beautifully, learning 'A Million Dreams' for the register signing and generally dazzling our guests with a variety of carefully chosen songs. Several guests commented on how good the music was - Rob really added something very special to our day. We would highly recommend Rob!"

"Rob performed during the drinks reception at my wedding three weeks ago. My wife & I couldn't be happier with his service. Not only is he a great guitarist, but he has a beautiful selection of tunes to choose from. Plus, he learned an excellent version of High and Dry by Radiohead for us. Thanks again Rob!"

"Thank you for helping to create the relaxed and laid back atmosphere we had hoped for.
About two weeks before our wedding we had decided we wanted an acoustic guitarist to perform at our ceremony and drinks reception! Nothing like leaving things to the last minute!! At such short notice, Rob helped us plan out what we wanted and when with no issues at all. He was every bit the professional on the day and really made the relaxed and romantic atmosphere we were after. So many guests commented on how great Rob was. A huge thanks for everything and we definitely wouldn't hesitate recommending Rob!"

"The whole process of booking, and pre-event communications with Rob, were excellent. In particular Rob was very proactive is making sure we selected the right kind of music for the event, and sorting out all the details. And on the night he was punctual, & had everything sorted out well before the start of the event. And his performance was great. We were really pleased that I had chosen Rob, and would wholeheartedly recommend him to anybody planning a similar event."

"We could not recommend Rob strongly enough. He played before, during and after our wedding ceremony with over 90 guests in attendance and kindly learnt and played a piece of our choice as the Bride walked down the aisle. Our guests enjoyed Rob's relaxed and fun set list (which he was happy to tailor to our taste) which was played to an excellent and professional standard. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Love Guitar for your wedding."

"Having Rob Shaw play at our wedding was truly beautiful. He exceeded our expectations in every way and worked with us to make our day unique and special. Guests complemented the romantic atmosphere created by Rob from arrival and during the wedding breakfast. Nothing was ever too much for Rob and his friendly and flexible approach allowed us to select a set of instrumental music that was classic and modern. A real bonus as our guest have such varying music tastes so there really was something for everyone. Rob is a truly talented guitarist and we would highly recommend to anyone wanting to make their wedding or event magical."

"I loved having Rob play at my daughter's wedding. Knowing him personally as a student I knew how accomplished a musician he was and was confident his passion for music would shine through. He did not disappoint. All the guests remarked at how good he was. His music was the perfect addition to my daughter's special day. I would highly recommend him to anybody else looking for a wedding guitarist".

"Rob played solo at my wedding, his playing just added to a perfect day. His choice of songs, his delivery and his professionalism stood out. How I wish I had as much natural ability. I would recommend him to anyone, without hesitation".

"We hosted a small garden wedding for 50 people at our home. Rob was just the perfect musician for such an event. He played for the cocktail hour and dinner. Rob’s music created a beautiful atmosphere for the event. His sets included both classic and modern songs, all very much tied to the romance of the wedding. Rob is also a really lovely guy, very easy work with. I recommend him highly.”

Dear Rob,
Thanks very much for playing our birthday party last week. I wanted to write to say how much we all enjoyed the music you played from classic Sinatra to fantastic interpretations of modern songs. Each song was played with such passion and originality that you had our guests talking about the music for long into the night. The music was a perfect accompaniment to our garden cocktail party!
Best wishes
