    Beachy Tropical Vibe

    Bob Lyons is so awesome to work with and we were so blessed to have him as one of our vendors for our special day. From day one he was communicative, thorough and professional. We hired him for our ceremony and cocktail hour. He was flexible and has an impressive list of songs, most available for a listen on his website/youtube. We received so many compliments from our guests who loved the music, and we did too! So glad we included him as part of our day. He really added the fun, beachy tropical vibe we were looking to share. Hire him, you will not regret it!

    The Best Music

    Just imagine for a minute the sound of a fabulous steel drum as you sip your guests enjoy a refreshing beverage. Bob Lyons will make you feel like you’re on an island in the sun. He is the most talented steel drum player who will arrive on time and never forgets his smile.

    Awesome Entertainer

    Bob is amazing at both the steel drums and his DJ skills. He knows just how to keep the party going and make any occasion a complete success. He played at my daughter's wedding 1/4/20, and having him was 1 of the best decisions we made. He is wonderful to work with, and worth the cost to have him be a part of your event. I want to plan another party with him just to enjoy his steel drums!

    Wonderful steel drum music!

    We booked with Bob from NJ, so all our correspondence was via email or phone calls. He is super easy to work with and was quick to respond with any questions we had. He played for both our ceremony on Smathers Beach and reception across the street at the Sheraton (Key West). It was no problem for him to move his equipment from one place to the other, and did so efficiently I didn’t even notice the move! We found plenty of music of his online to preview before we booked, and still were impressed. Our guests still comment on how cool it was to have steel drums at our wedding, and how great his playing was! We were very happy with him, and would most definitely recommend!!

    Steel Drum Music

    Bob Lyons was an excellent addition to our outdoor wedding at Bakers Ranch! He provided the perfect ambiance for prelude, processional & cocktail hour music for our FL destination wedding. He was easy to work with through email, as we planned everything out of state.

    From the beginning Bob was easygoing - open for whatever we wanted. He showed up - played - kept our guest entertained with great music!

    Definitely a great value! Loved the steel drum background music during our welcome party - thank you Bob!

    Love on the Steele drums

    AMAZING...... we had a three day event, and he provided entertainment for our cheeseburger in paradise party. He is talented. My guests raved about him, and enjoyed him. He brought a unique flair to my party. He is joyful, talented, and just a delight. He was on time, played the best music, kept the crowd entertained. My guest could not stop talking about him and his talent. My cousin even wants to learn to play the drums because of him... a great talent

    What a perfect touch

    Bob's music added the island ambiance we wanted for our ceremony and cocktail hour, in spite of the rain coming down during our cocktail hour. Bob was responsive to emails and so easy to work with-a true professional! I loved his hat and shirt selection. The music sounded great, thank you Bob!

    Tropical cocktail music

    I cannot say enough great things about Bob Lyons. The steel drum is my absolute favorite instrument. When someone told me about Bon, I knew I had to incorporate him into my wedding somehow. From the very first email, Bob was easy to communicate with and very comforting. He had a large song list which incorporated music from Disney, Caribbean, pop, etc. He was able to learn a song I wanted to walk down the aisle to which was not on his original song list. He arrived promptly on the big day. I unfortunately was very busy during cocktail hour, but many of my guests told me that day and after that the steel drum during the cocktail hour was wonderful and so unique. Bob also fit in very nicely with my tropical wedding theme. Thanks again!

    An extra bit of magic...

    Bob was the ultimate professional from the moment we contacted him to the very end. He was a class act throughout and provided some extra magic on our wedding day. Would happily use Bob again and would strongly recommend him to anyone wanting a steel drummer. Many thanks Bob.

    Beautiful music and great experience!

    Bob Lyons provided us with beautiful music for our wedding ceremony a couple weeks ago. He was very professional and easy to work with leading up to the event. He's flexible and very communicative, which made things fun and easy. His song list is very large, and it was so fun listening to the clips on his site to choose our selections. Everyone raved about the music and it was PERFECT for the setting. I would definitely recommend him!!

    Bob Lyons played at our rehearsal dinner/welcome reception for our guests and it was perfect! We wanted to create a vibe of the Florida Keys for our guests as they arrived for our wedding weekend and it was exactly what we got. The music was smooth and he played great songs that put us in a mindset of "destination wedding" mode. He also made announcements for us throughout his music playing. I would recommend Bob Lyons to anyone who wants great island music! I hope to hire him again in the future!

    Bob was our favorite vendor by far. He was prompt, professional, and from start to finish just perfect. He even played the ukulele for us which was so special. Thank you for making our special day even better. Highly recommend him to anyone for their event!

    If you are looking for a steel drum player, then Bob is the guy to go to! From the start he was easy to work with and very responsive. The music was beautiful for the ceremony and fun for the cocktail hour. The only sad part was with all the chaos of pictures and guest....I never got to personally thank Bob! He was everything we envisioned and more! Stop looking any further, because Bob is your guy!

    I was taking my pictures during most of his time playing. However, all of the guests said he was incredible! Plus he was super nice and easy to work with. He also has a great song list! Thank you!

    Wow, what a great musician! So flexible and friendly! The steel drums were a dream. We had a mix up about where he was supposed to set up his DJ equipment and he happily moved everything to another location. My guests were able to make any songs requests and he orchestrated the night perfectly. Highly recommend!

    Bob did such a great job! We booked him and then coincidentally saw him perform at a wedding we attended prior to ours! He was so great so I knew I was in good hands. He played all of the music we requested and it sounded so perfect. All of our guests had a great time and commented on the "steel drum guy" that did such a great job! Bob, thank you so much! I will definitely recommend Bob to couples looking for tropical music entertainment!
