Dano's Island Sounds was Fantastic. I hired just the Steel drums with the tracks as background for my backyard Luau party and it was perfect. People kept raving about how wonderful he played. The music at a party truly ties in everything together. If you are debating weather or not to hire live music you should know it really is what makes the party feel more special.

I'm completely confused...I was generously tipped and the client was overjoyed when the band went home for the evening.

Dano and the band was very professional. They arrived early, set up quickly and made sure they knew exactly what tempo of music I wanted during different segments of our party. The professionalism was only topped by the talent. The music was fantastic! Many of our guests commented how the band was the best they had ever heard even down in the islands. The music truly made our event.
