Jackie, Wedding, March 2019

“A fantastic steel drummer with such great talent! After searcing high and low for a valuable artist to play at my partners 30th surprise Caribbean themed birthday party, I most definitely made the right choice in booking Island Moods! He looked and sounded fabulous and was the highlight of the night. Great thanks and will deffo book again!”

Sarah Jane, 30th Birthday party, March 2019

“Island Moods was 100% first class in every way. I nooked him as a surprise for my daughter at her wedding reception in the UK after we went to Jamaica two weeks ago for her wedding. He also managed to keep it a secret by waiting outside before setting up until my daughter wasn’t about. Everyone at the wedding loved him especially my daughter and son in law. Many guests wanted him to play for longer! I would recommend him 101% to anyone who is looking for steel drum music. He is absolutely brilliant!”

Andrew, Wedding, February 2019

“Superb, music was wonderful – just right for our 7 year itch party! So relaxed and helped the party really go with a spring! Could not have chosen a better booking and star performer – thoroughly recommended!”

Julia, Anniversary party, January 2019

“Thank you! You really added to our events and we have received great feedback about your sounds. We will keep your details for future events!”
