Luau PartyReviewed on June 14, 2015From Versailles, KY

I hired Steel Away for a Luau for my husband's retirement party. We hired 2 steel drums and another drummer. Communication with Kyle was what I would expect from a professional in his field, if not even above. He helped me in deciding what I would need for my vision of an enjoyable evening at our Luau. He and the others were prompt, courteous, and very professional. The music was exceptional, beyond what I could ever have asked for. The guests kept commenting on how much they enjoyed the music. Would highly recommend for any type of event and would definitely hire again!!!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on August 31, 2015From Indianapolis, IN

They were AMAZING and we got so many compliments from guests at the party. What I loved the most is that they were drama free -- super easy to book, arrived on time and took one big thing off my list. I was so confident in their abilities given all their super reviews that I didn't go through the questions of "what are you going to wear" and "what is your set list." Glad I didn't get bogged down in the details as they were FABULOUS and we will definitely hire again!

Retirement PartyReviewed on August 3, 2015From Granville, OH

We could not have asked for anything more from Kyle. Communication with him was easy, he made great recommendations for what would be appropriate for our size party and the music was wonderful! Everyone commented on how wonderful he was! Very professional but laid back enough to fit right in at our party. Perfect! Thank you!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on June 12, 2011From Elizabethtown, KY

This event was a backyard wedding and Luau + Pig Roast with multiple families and all ages 2-84 numbering 150. Everyone LOVED Steel Away and I would definitely hire them again and will definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for wonderful entertaining music. Kyle and all the band members were extremely solicitous and adaptable to our requirements. Steel away members arrived and set up quickly in a timely fashion. All members were appropriately dressed and all were very mannerly. We couldn't have asked for more. Did I happen to mention that we LOVED Steel Away!!

Wedding Cocktail HourReviewed on August 12, 2010From Celina, OH

Steel Away was fantastic. Kyle was completely accommodating to work with our schedule with his start time, break time, etc. The music was awesome, it really set the tone for the night exactly how I pictured it! Thanks again!

Corporate FunctionReviewed on July 19, 2010From Ann Arbor, MI

Kyle was awesome! He answered all of my questions/concerns before we even met. Our corporate picnic was held at a park with no electrical outlets, and therefore I was concerned about hearing the music. Kyle suggested 2-steel drums, and he was absolutely right. The music was awesome and loud enough for all to enjoy. He even allowed some of our young guests (kids) to practice a little on the steel drums. I would highly reccommend Steel Away!!!!

Private PartyReviewed on August 16, 2010From Port Clinton, OH

Steel Away did a great job at our daughters engagement party. They arrived well ahead of time and were very well mannered and polite. They played for three and a half hours and only took one 10 minite break. The volume of the music was perfect, easy to hear but not overwhelming. I strongly recommend them for your party.

CelebrationReviewed on August 19, 2011From Brookville, IN

Steel Away set the mood for our luau! Their performance tied in with the decorations, beverages, and food perfectly. Guests enjoyed their music while mingling and visiting. They were punctual and friendly. I highly recommend hiring them for any occasion where an "island" feel is needed. It was money well spent!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on June 14, 2010From Lebanon, OH

Steel Away exceeded our expectations, we had them in high end Hawaiian Laua for my Grandmothers 90th B-Day, we had family in from all over and wanted it to be very special. Their presentation, set-up and overall performance was excellent and made our event exceptionally memorable. Thanks Steel Away!!! You guys are awesome! Clint Frazier

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on May 23, 2011From Cincinnati, OH

Steel Away really helped to make our daughter's wedding reception a day to remember. There were numerous comments from our guests on how fabulous they were. I had asked for background music and that is exactly what we got- you could still carry on conversation or just sit and listen which many chose to do. I probably had a dozen people ask me where I found them so should receive numerous hits too. A big thank you to Kyle and the band you were great!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on August 15, 2010From Columbus, OH

Stan, our Steel Away performer was perfect for our event. He accommodated special requests and played very well. We had to move inside due to rain and he adjusted the style and volume of music. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed listening and the party would not have been the same without his peformance.
