    Fabulous Experience

    Bob played steel drums and ukulele for our son鈥檚 rehearsal dinner (50 people) and a large Welcome Event (about 180 guests) that followed it at Cheeca Lodge Resort in Islamorada. A number of locals recommended him, telling me he was professional and so easy to work with. They were exactly right! Bob鈥檚 music gave our lovely venue the perfect touch and a feel of the islands without being too much. He made every bit of our work together easy and fun with quick emails back and forth to plan and easy links to pay deposit and final payment. With a destination wedding, I was planning from afar without a lot of knowledge of the venue. Bob had great ideas about where to set up, suggested he could also play quiet background music during dinner on his ukulele, provided his wireless mic for us to use for toasts and speeches after dinner, and was unobtrusive and flexible all evening. He handled all his own set-up/tear down across two spaces seamlessly and assured me he would be there early to do sound checks and such and needed no one to meet him for that. Much appreciated on a very busy day already! We had a pop-up rain shower during the dinner prayer (we were outside!) and had to pull everyone into the bar for ten minutes and then wait while servers wiped off tables/chairs so we could re-start dinner. Bob calmly wiped off all his equipment and played on, never missed a beat, smiled the whole time, did not ask me one question or need any direction about what to do. That altered our schedule for the evening a bit. He rolled with it and moved seamlessly to the other terrace to begin music for our arriving Welcome event party right on time, leaving a mic for us to finish toasts. He is a talented musician and a terrific professional. You won鈥檛 regret a decision to include him in your celebration! I just described an unexpected rain shower during an outdoor event for 50 people, and we still had a GREAT evening. Bob helped make that possible. Every bit of the night was perfect, and guests loved him too!
