Most Wonderful Wedding Imaginable - Hire Bob!

I couldn't recommend more as Bob is one of the most talented, flexible and accommodating people I have ever had the pleasure of working with in the industry. While I have been in the service industry for multiple decades and previously a banquet manager, I can say with upmost confidence that Bob is by far the best musician I have ever heard and I can't explain how lucky I am to have had him play at my own wedding. He can pick up anything and play music that all of your wedding guests will find themselves singing (or in my case screaming) to. I can't recommend Bob enough as he is beyond talented and while you might think that steel drums might just be background music and not necessarily sound like the original songs, not the case with Bob, I literally can not explain how talented and wonderful Bob made my wedding. He is a bit of everything but beyond talented and professional in all areas. Hire him if you want your dream wedding to come true!

Hands down the best!

We hired Bob for our cocktail hour and we were so glad we did! Communication was easy and he was able to play a specific song we requested on the ukulele. Bob is very talented and provides the best ambiance for any party. Highly recommend!
