What a brilliant night's entertainment from Abdul of Steel Sounds. A great set of music that had everyone singing along and dancing. He really made the party go with a swing. Abdul was professional and helpful from our first contact through to his fantastic double steel drum performance on the night in front of 70 people. Thoroughly recommended. Thanks for everything Abdul!

"I can't praise Abdul enough. He sure knows his way around the steel drums, but more than that, he also knows how to entertain. He went the extra mile for us as well, joining in with a couple of extra bits we asked him to do and doing a great job in the process. I hired him for me and my twin brother's 60th ""do"" after my wife said it would be good to have a steel drummer play for the first part of the evening whilst people were gathering and then eating. I wasn't entirely sure at the time, but, just for once, I'm glad I listened to her. Not promising I'll listen again, but this time I have to admit she was right. Abdul's contribution to the evening was a major part in its success. And he's a really nice bloke too. Highly recommended."

"If I could rate Abdul more than 5 stars I absolutely would. He set the tone for our wedding perfectly. He played a wide range of songs and played brilliantly, our guests thoroughly enjoyed his talents. I couldn't recommend him enough!

If I have any future functions I will no doubt look to see if he is available.

All the best,

Aaron"
