Ian was not only on time, he was early! He came in, was very courteous and professional, set everything up on time and started playing a few minutes early. He worked with me (the groom) on exactly what to play for the processional when my bride walked in, and then a signal for when to start playing the recessional. Worked perfectly. He was great, guests enjoyed it, he took a request from the obligatory drunk cousin demanding an encore of "Red Red Wine" with aplomb. He played an extra few minutes, and handled the load-out on his own with no complications. In short- 5 star service all around. Would give 6 stars if I could.

Ian was very professional. After we had to do a last minute change to show location and therefore how our event was going to be run, he was willing to take on a much more interactive role with the audience. He put on a great performance and got the audience involved for a fun afternoon for everybody.

Ian was wonderful! He provided a spirited performance with a wonderful island vibe. His steel drum playing and singer was perfect for our laid back atmosphere, and he was accomdating to guest requests during the evening. He even played a little longer than scheduled for some kids that were dancing to his music. That was nice to see him go above and beyond for their enjoyment. I would definately recommend him for any island or luau themed party in the future, and would hire him again for entertainment.

Thanks to Ian all of our guests had an awesome experience. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking to hire a steel drum band to play at their private home event. He arrived right on time and was interactive with our guests, which was a real plus.

Ian has a good sense of what the party goers want to hear and encouraged them to participate if they felt the need. He is very versatile and talented. Ian's music makes you feel like dancing! I would hire him again. Lori Clough

Ian was a great & talented sport! Our picnic was Aug. 18th, we expected hot weather & it was rainy and windy. Ian didn't miss a beat and performed as if we had perfect conditions. A great time was had by all!

Ian presented a wonderful performance. The kids loved it and so did the adults! His act was high-energy and very interactive. Everyone had a fabulous time. The age range of the children was 3-12 years.

Ian did a great job at our Party Fantastique, a Charles Wright Academy event from our Auction. He read the crowd well as to when to liven it up, or tone it down a bit. His music was fun and lively, and I would definitely recommend him to friends, or use him in the future! He was also very good at his follow-through on all the details up front.

The event was a birthday party for a 8 year old girl, with about 25 kids. Ian treated the event with ultimate attention and professionalism. He arrived early to set up the equipment, he provided many ideas for the event program and kept the kids interested and engaged. He was attentive to the audience and made adjustments as needed. Ian placed the birthday girl in the middle of the party and made her feel special. Thanks for the great party!!!
