“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!”


“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!”


“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!”


“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!”


“Just wanted to say thank you again for playing at our wedding. It went exactly how we wanted it and you really set the tone of our wedding perfectly. Thanks again and we will definitely be in touch to use your services in the future!”


“Island Moods steel band played at our Wedding in October. We were only expecting a solo performance but were delighted when a duo played! Through-out their performance they went that extra mile. Would highly recommend this band for any occasion. Many many thanks for making our day even more memorable.”


“We saw Island Moods at a friend’s wedding, they were so good, we felt that we had to book them for our special day at Hintlesham Golf Club. Thanks guys, you did an amazing job, an awesome collection of songs created a great atmosphere for our drinks reception. All of our guests loved you and we loved seeing you again to enjoy a unique sound that really started our wedding reception off in the best way possible. Book these guys, they are amazing!”


“We had the band up for our summer party lst weekend and they were fantastic. Quick communication which made organizing the event as easy as possible, and on the day the music was absolutely perfect. They judged the mood and the crowd brilliantly and played a wonderful set. Everyone has been asking when we will be having you back, so I hope to see you soon!”


“I am so glad that we were able to book you for our wedding day. You made our drinks reception come to life. Come rain or shine we danced non stop to your incredible sound. I had always hoped to bring a piece of the Caribbean to my wedding day in memory of my late father, and you exceeded my expectations. As you both played the love I felt was special! Thank you for the memories.”


“I hired these lovely musicians for my sons first birthday party in May. It was great choice! They arrived ahead of schedule, set up and played wonderfully! Everyone loved the music, which turned out to be a great choice for the children as they weren’t scared and they quite enjoyed the soft tunes! My son loved the steel drums and we all had a great time.”
