Here's some what of what clients had to say about Bobo, ( former leader of Feelin Irie)
I contacted Gigmasters after we decided to hold an "Island" theme staff meeting at our office. They made it so easy to contact the band, which was quickly followed up by Bobo from "Feelin Irie". We opted for two musicians/instruments. You would have never known it wasn't a full band! They were wonderful, and very professional. They had quite a drive to get to us, but didn't blink an eye at it. Everyone loved having their music playing, and enjoyed having them here, (even if most of the office was playing poker at the opposite end of the office)! Thanks again for coming out, you'll stay in my contact list! Sorry about the 7 hour drive home! Thanks again! -- Sherry R, Hamilton, NJ, 7/29/2011
These guys did a great job. I was approached at multiple times throughout the night by guests who told me just how great Feelin' Irie was. They really added another level to our party. Thanks Guys! -- Gavin H, New York, NY, 8/11/2011

As they say in Trinidad & Tobago, the home of the Steeldrum Band
" See ya down de Road Mon"!

I don’t know where to begin. I was looking to create a nice ambience for my husbands 40th birthday party on our backyard - Emy was just wonderful. Everyone at the party was commenting how they would like to book her at their next party. The music was relaxing and soothing and the perfect background music for our island party! Emy was easy to communication with via text once I put down my deposit and we were able to work out the final logistics! If you want to take a good party to a great party, I would highly recommend hiring Emy or the entire ensemble for your next event! I would call her again in a heartbeat! Thank you again for making this day memorable!!
