Music from the heart is unfakable. I have 20 years of experience in music and I have enjoyed the fortune of learning from an incredible array of professionals in the wedding industry, that has made my learning curve seemless. I have been performing weddings since 2008 and I belong to prefered vendor lists throughout the state of Florida. I specialize in solo work but I'm blessed to have the most incredible lineup of musicians you'll ever hear, and we perform, as a band (The Roberto DeBourg Band), for public venues a couple of times a month in the best locations in Tampa Bay. The music we perform is popular music but it's always influenced by some kind of foreign rhtym that gets people in a dancing mood. We also offer a DJ that will get you out in the dance floor if you need a push. Great interaction, punctual, organized professionals. With a ton of heart behind everything we do. I can also be heard in areas like Miami, Key West, and soon Nashville and Europe.

As far as Weddings. We understand what this day means to you. We are young proffesionals, I'm a father of two beautiful daughters, which helps me use my talent and the passion I have for them to experience the day that every little girl dreams of.

Please call us and talk to Sarah, she is a sweetheart!!! 813.4252055 between 11am and 5pm

Roberto and the Flats made my wedding.

Our ask: we wanted more than a wedding band, we wanted musicians.

Before the event: Roberto was highly recommended. During our interactions before the wedding, he was responsive, kind, and constantly focused on what questions he needed to ask to make our day special.

During the event: Roberto and the Flats brought the house down. I looked out at one point and no one was sitting down. We've been told by many that Roberto and the Flats were the best wedding band they had ever seen. I know we agree.

I love Roberto. I love the Flats. I wish I could do it all over with them 100 times.

Amazing and SO MUCH FUN!!!!! I would definitely recommend Roberto and The Flats - everyone at our wedding said they were the best wedding band they had ever heard. Roberto did our ceremony music, and was amazing, and the band played for our reception and had people dancing all night long.

Roberto and the Flats were absolutely amazing!!! Roberto did a fantastic job on the guitar for our ceremony and cocktail hour. My guests and I never left the dance floor once the whole band started playing. They were so much fun and did not just play your stereotypical wedding music. Our guests are still talking about how great our band was. Best wedding band ever!!

Wow, where do you start? We first met them in Key West when they were playing another wedding. They played all of our favorite music but blended it together so one song seamlessly transitions to the next. The effect is a non stop stream that kept the audience dancing for hours.

When we signed them for our wedding, it was immediately apparent they are willing to do more than you'd expect. Roberto actually came to our apartment with his guitar and demoed music for us in our living room so we could choose what we wanted to hear for the wedding.

At the wedding the band was extremely friendly with everyone and accommodated any requests we had. If this review isn't enough, go see them! They play in the Tampa area regularly and is well worth a night out. We did, and they are a blast!

Absolutely awesome! We couldn't be happier with the way our Key West ceremony and reception turned out thanks to Roberto, Hiram, Derek, Johnny and also Mauricio (and team) from Seven Sounds Music. They are all so talented! Roberto played classical music during our ceremony, Roberto and Hiram played during the cocktail hour and then the entire band played during the reception. They played a variety of music genres such as Reggae, Pop, Rock, Latin and much more. They had a contagious energy that never quit.

They were absolutely phenomenal. We had countless compliments from our guests who danced all night long. Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day so special! -- The Perkeys

Roberto and his band are amazing. They are not one of those cheesy bands you see at some weddings. They were very professional and I could not have asked for better entertainment on my big day!
