    Wedding Ceremony

    Bongo Duane was great to work with. He was easy going and helpful with the particular sound we wanted for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. He is super nice and loves his musical craft. Highly recommend him! My guests thoroughly enjoyed his music and it was perfect for our beach wedding.

    Amazing choice for your next event!

    We were referred to Bongo D by our venue host (Old Town Manor). We knew we wanted steel drums for our wedding cocktail hour and let鈥檚 just say Duane鈥檚 reviews speak for themselves! He was such a joy to be around and so very talented. Totally engages the crowd, too! It鈥檚 a full performance- enjoyable and chill.
    When it came time to transition from steel drums to our DJ, it was a smooth, seamless transfer (a bride鈥檚 dream).
    Duane is a breeze to work with. He answered all of my emails/questions leading up to the day, and just made the process easy. Highly recommend for your next event!
