"Booked Impact to play at our Rum and Reggae evening.
Impact played as a duet and they were amazing!
Performing reggae and calypso tunes to the delight of the watching crowd.
Will be organising another Rum and Reggae evening in the coming months and I will definitely be calling on the services of the incredible Impact Steelband to perform at my event.
Thankyou to Fareed and Co for making it such a special night!"

"I booked Impact Steelband as a surprise for my husband's birthday party.
We had a bbq in our garden with the band playing in the background.
All our friends and family said they had a great time and were blown away by the music played by the band!
Having the lovely sounds of the carribean playing in my garden was magical.
My hubby had a great day!
What more can I say but THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU Impact Steel band.....
I'll be calling on you guys again, really soon!"

"Apologies. In my previous review, i was supposed to give Impact Steel Band a 5* rating.....not a 1* rating. Sorry again.
Impact were absolutely fantastic!"

Fareed, Michael & Charlotte gave our community a totally tropical evening of live music. They were prompt, positively cheerful, talented and attentive to the audience's enjoyment. Unreservedly, recommended - thank you for a Caribbean night to remember!
