Review by Janel P.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on June 6, 2015From Chula Vista, CA

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.
