"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,

"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.

Abdul was fantastic!!! He arrived early, set up and was ready as everyone arrived. Everyone, and I mean everyone at the event commented on how good the music was from the variety of songs to the quality of his playing. I would highly recommend him for any event whether it be corporate, a wedding or a party. Fantastic and a lovely guy!!!!!

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!
