Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

What is your musical background and wedding experience?

Robert Rothko

I started singing professionally in weddings when I was 12 years old. Since then, I’ve sung regularly in many types of weddings...religious and secular, traditional and contemporary, etc.

I've performed during wedding ceremonies as well as receptions, and the broad range of tastes, styles, and requests I've accommodated over the years has honed my versatility.    

I have a master’s degree in Vocal Performance from the top vocal school in the USA: the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. I studied opera and classical art song, but I also have extensive experience singing pop, rock, and musical theater. I have performed in many of the most prominent venues in Los Angeles, both with a band and as a solo artist.     

What is your musical style?

Robert Rothko

I am a bit of a chameleon.

Most of the weddings I perform in are contemporary, and I play/sing in a pop/folk style that’s compared to that of Ed Sheeran, Jason Mraz, and Justin Timberlake. 

For weddings that are more traditional, I employ my classical training for a slightly different aesthetic. In this style, my singing is often compared to Josh Groban’s. Actually, there is a recording on my SoundCloud of me performing a Josh Groban song “To Where You Are.” Listening to that will give you a good idea of what I mean!

The bottom line: I’m happy to talk to couples about their musical preferences and adapt accordingly. 

Do you learn song requests?

Robert Rothko

Absolutely! In the past, I’ve even “reworked” the lyrics of a song completely to fit the story of the wedding couple. I’m happy to learn new music that is special to the bride and groom. 

Do you provide your own sound equipment?

Robert Rothko

Yes. I have my own PA system that provides excellent sound quality and sound dispersion. My system works beautifully for smaller and medium-sized venues. For large venues, I work with a sound rental company to ensure I have what I need.

Are you willing to travel?

Robert Rothko

Yes again. Depending on the distance, my rate may change. Talk to me, and we can figure it out!

If you’re interested, please contact me. I like to call all of my prospective clients and have a brief, friendly chat about their wedding plans. After I have a good idea of their needs, I can put together a quote.

We had Robert sing at our wedding and we could not recommend him enough! He was great during the planning/postponement process (thanks covid) and many of our guests commented on how beautiful the music was. Robert was able to read the room and play the correct songs to compliment the mood.

Robert Rothko  

Thanks Krysten! Glad we were able to get there in the end, after all the COVID craziness! It was an absolute pleasure on my end, and I wish you both lots of love and good fortune in the New Year.

We came across Robert Rothko and enquired about covering a few songs (John Legend - All of me, Ed Sheeran - Photograph and Amy Shark - Adore) for our ceremony and entertainment music during the canape for our guests. We knew right away that Robert was the right choice for our Big Day due to his professionalism and the sample of one of the covers confirmed that. Thank you Robert for delivering what you promised and making the whole process effortless, it really added to our special day!!

Your wedding was beautiful, and I loved being a part of it. All the best to you both!

Robert Rothko really made our wedding extra special. He helped select the most suitable songs and delivered them extremely beautifully. The wedding ceremony took place at the Victorian Marriage Registry which was very busy that day. Regardless of the time constraints, Robert's singing made the ceremony more than just a signing ceremony. He sang "Perfect", "All of Me" , and "I am Yours", better than the original. His voice was so beautiful and powerful, making the atmosphere romantic and joyful. We are truly grateful and fortunate to have Robert sing at our wedding. Robert Rothko is more than an awesome singer and artist. He's also a professional, We highly recommend his service.

Robert Rothko was the musician at my wedding in August 2015. He sang "I Will Be Here," "Me And You," "There Is Love," "In This Very Room," and "Ave Maria" during the ceremony. I chose Robert because he is a trained vocalist, and he has a beautiful voice. I received numerous compliments about Robert, and I would highly recommend him.
