About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Welcome to "Island Sounds" LET THE SOUNDS OF THE CARIBBEAN AND CRUISE SHIPS ENTER INTO YOUR NEXT EVENT. Book Jose aka on Facebook Jose Panman Costa now! (( ALERT:)) If you are interested in a destination wedding in the Caribbean-primairly Puerto Rico not including San Juan but in the western side of the island, I perform and reside there from November to mid May. I have all the contacts you need & venues. Feel free to contact me for assistance. I am a solo steel drum artist based in Rhode Island and serving the New England area in the late spring, summer and early fall. Please note I have 300 bookings,which should speak for itself. I work very hard to try to make each event a memorable one. Nothing can take the place of a human being playing live steel drums and percussion and the excitement it gives to the audience. The music I play is very unique, uplifting and would enhance any party, wedding, corporate event or any other special occasion. During my performance, I utilize digital "custom made" sequenced tracks on my I Pad, which also contains my sheet music, through a state of the art Bose sound system. You will truly get the sound of a full band without the budget or space needed for a full band. In addition, depending on the circumstances, I can also incorporate ethnic hand percussion instruments, chimes, cymbals, etc. in my solo act. This is a definite change from the mundane and typical jazz or guitar player/singer soloist cocktail hour acts. Now that I am retired from being a public school teacher. I am also available to do school clinics/exhibitions. I reside and perform in Puerto Rico during the winter months, and while I'm there feel free to contact me for any events. I would enjoy spicing up your special occasion with some 'Island Flava'.

Corporate FunctionReviewed on October 5, 2022From Raynham, MA

We hired Jose "Panman" Costa for a campus-wide event for our organization, Johnson & Johnson in Raynham, Massachusetts. Our event was themed, Journey to the Caribbean and Jose's steel drum music was the special piece needed for our event. He was truly amazing! His music filled the halls and room at our event. Everyone LOVED listening to his music. He is very talented and was a pleasure to work with. He will DEFINITELY be kept on our list of vendors for future events!

Anniversary PartyReviewed on August 22, 2020From Hampton, NH

We hired Jose for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary party. He loves what he does, and we were so happy we hired him. Everyone loved his music. We consulted a few times before the party to be sure he figured out how to best play for his audience. While I had some doubts about having just steel drums for our four-hour event, he was the absolute perfect accompaniment. At our intimate gathering of 25, his music blended in beautifully, and he never made himself the center of attention, although his music was. It was just the vibe I was looking for. He's immersed in his music when he plays, and a pleasure to listen to.
