Abdul was absolutely amazing at our office summer party! Abdul was so engaging and enthusiastic, it was a delight from the beginning till the very end. Everyone loved the range of songs he played and we could all tell how passionate he was playing the steel pan. He is very professional, friendly and passionate. He added so much energy to the party. I would highly recommend Abdul, do not hesitate! He will make your event unforgettable and a real talking point, as he did with ours. Thank you!!

I can't thank Abdul enough, he did an amazing job. Everyone at the wedding couldn't stop talking about him and what a lovely touch it was to have him playing the steel drums. Abdul was very friendly, he fitted in well, and was very flexible with the structure of the day, which allowed us to enjoy ourselves we no worries. We would without a doubt have him again for a big event and highly recommend him for others.
