Ed gave an excellent performance in less than ideal weather conditions. Great song selection! Our crowd of guests ranging in ages from 17-82 had a great time! We will definitely book Steel Horizons for future events.
OUR SET UP
We have 2 different sound systems that we use:
1) For beach weddings and other small intimate performances (and where electricity is not allowed/available), we use a battery powered PA System. For these types of events, our sound projects where it can be heard but will not be overbearing.
2) For larger events, we use two-1,000 watt speakers that can fill up a large area with sound quite easily. Just let us know, we can turn the volume up or down!!
Steel drums tend to go out of tune if in direct sun light, especially on a hot summer day during the mid afternoon. So we prefer to be in the shade. We can bring an umbrella or a canopy. We can also set up in your living room, on a boat or a deck, etc.---pretty much anywhere that is stationary.
For beach weddings, ,most officiants don't bring a microphone and a PA system. We can provide both at no additional cost. Our microphone is not wireless so we will have to set up with 50 feet of the officiant. Also, if you are having a party or a celebration and you need a microphone for announcements, we can provide one as well.
We live in South Jersey, but are willing to travel up to 2 1/2 hours in each direction. We have even traveled to Ocean City, Maryland and have used the Cape May/Lewes Ferry as a means of transportation. So for events outside of Cumberland, Salem, Cape May, Atlantic, Gloucester, and Camden Counties, the travel charge is roughly $1.25 per mile. We will do our best to provide you with the best possible quote, but please keep in mind that significant traveling adds a lot more time to the performance day.
You may select any song from our extensive musical repertoire. You may also want a special song to be played at your wedding that is not in our current list. If we don't know it, we will do our best to learn it, BUT it's not included in the fee. We will usually spend between 15 to 25 hours learning each song so that we can capture a 'good vibe' when we play them.
