What a great day and having Winston playing the steel drums for our outdoor wedding was perfect. Winston even played a recording of somewhere over the rainbow at my request as I walked to the alter. We highly recommend Islandboys for your wedding or party. Thank You! The Bronleewe's Tampa, FL

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on November 3, 2013From Captiva, FL

Winston is terrific! He was a fabulous addition to our family birthday party at a home that we rented on Captiva. We especially appreciated how he warmly included our grandchildren in the entertainment. We loved his steel drum playing and singing. He had us all up and dancing. It was an event that we will never forget. Winston is a pleasure to work with. He is warm, friendly and talented. I highly recommend him.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on September 27, 2013From Marco Island, FL

My wedding was literally perfect. The Island Boys were simply amazing. I feel so lucky to have found them and will forever recommend them to anyone in the Tampa/Clearwater/Naples/Marco Island area. (Yep, they made the trip to Marco Island for this event) All of the guests are still talking about them, and I have a feeling they will for a very long time. Great job getting a room full of "non-dancers" up out of their seats and out onto the dance floor. It was truly more than I could have even hoped for. Thank you so much for everything you guys! It was truly spectacular!

Luau PartyReviewed on May 16, 2013From Tampa, FL

We booked Island Boys for our annual luncheon. The guests were mainly physicians and medical staff. The lively music Winston (one of the Island Boys) played created a fun and festive atmosphere. Many of the guests commented on how much they enjoyed the "island break" in the middle of their work day. Thank you Island Boys for making our event a memorable one!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on May 5, 2013From Clearwater, FL

It was truly a pleasure to work with Winston from the Island Boys. They (I used both members of the family) made my daughter's wedding a day to remember. They were professional, punctual and very accommodating with their music. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for "a touch of the islands sound" and something just a little bit different than the ordinary. Kudos to the Island Boys!

They were great! All of the guests at the event wanted to know where I found them and I think they will get many more bookings from the guests. They really have a good sound and were a pleasure to do business with. I will definately book them in the future!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on April 27, 2012From Clearwater, FL

From first inquiry to the end of his hours of entertainment for our guests and family at the beach wedding ceremony & poolside cocktail hour for my son and our new daughter-in-law, everything was topnotch and so customer focused! Winston arrived early to set up, played wonderfully, giving very special practice & attention to a song that was the couple's postwedding request. Our guests enjoyed the entertainment so much, and we are very grateful the addition to a wedding that was a dream come true! Cannot thank you enough! Mother of the Groom

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on April 14, 2012From Bradenton Beach, FL

I usually find at least one or two things worth a non-5 star rating anytime I give feedback for anything...even though the work or service provided was great, but with this feedback I cannot do it. Across the board, Islandboys helped give our wedding that "something" that made it even better. We asked the player to do a very intricate piece for our ceremony and he pulled it off without a hitch AND without question. At the reception he played and performed masterfully. And this feedback was just his performance. He was also very friendly, personable, and professional. If you want the best, hire these guys!
