Late July – Early August.

Aug 11
It’s been a busy few weeks 
July 23: Wedding ceremony @ St. Anne’s Church on Mackinac Island. Solo guitar. In addition to processional/recessional music I provided accompaniment for 2 hymns sung by the guests.

Aug 28 – I received this review from Shannon, July 23rd bride today via Wedding Wire – a fun amendment to my mention of guests singing hymns:

“I would definitely recommend Robert McCloy if you are looking for an excellent acoustic guitarist for your wedding. He was on time, extremely professional, and very easy to work with. He really knows what he is doing. During our hymns, we all messed up the rhythms when singing, so I was highly impressed when Robert quickly adjusted his playing to our mistake! He truly is the best!”

July 29: Felt Mansion, Saugatuck, MI. Solo guitar wedding ceremony, cocktail, and dinner music. Processional: Bach Prelude (from Cello Suite), recessional: “Concerning Hobbits”. For the reception, I was joined by Gary Clavette (sax & flute) and John Dewey, Violin. We played jazz standards, arrangements of pop and show tunes, Motown, Blues, and more.

• Rating: 5 out of 5
• Personable, reliable and fantastic musician
“Although I didn’t get to speak much with Robert on the day he performed for my wedding, Robert was exactly what we were looking for. He performed on guitar for our entire event from ceremony to reception and we could not have asked for better music or a more talented musician. We danced, we cried and laughed, and the music moved us seamlessly through the night. We couldn’t have asked for more.
On top of being a wonderful musician, Robert responded to our requests and inquiries immediately, every time. His prompt responses kept my husband and I at ease through the whole planning process. We highly recommend him and hope to cross paths with him again one day.”

Hello Nikkia;
That was phun 🙂 A great day at the Felt Mansion in Saugatuck. Thank you for the opportunity to work with the guitar/violin/sax trio. We do not get to do that enough.
Re: crossing paths again someday – hoping to play at your children’s wedding!! 🙂 Everyone in my family pushes 100 yrs of life, so I expect to be at this for a while. I love what I do, and plan on keep on keeping on.
Wow – a couple days later Nikkia posted the following on Wedding Wire:
“Weddings are stressful and full of indecision, at least mine was, but choosing Robert McCloy to play our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception (he was accompanied by two additional musicians to form a jazz trio for the reception who were also FANTASTIC!), was the best decision we made in planning our special day. Robert made the music component for the evening as stressless as humanly possible, even when I asked him to play a special request 48 hours before the event. He was accommodating to everything I asked or wanted, and his quick responsiveness made my husband and I entirely at east through the booking process.
Anyone considering booking Robert should know they are in good hands with an experienced and talented professional who knows how to make a special night truly wonderful.”
