I have had the priviledge of being present at several events in the Atlanta Area which Paul was playing! One was the Aquarium, the other Fuego Mundo. The atmosphere on both occasions was transformed into nothing short of magical! People laughing and dancing...moving to music..absolutely enchanting! Paul himself is charming and adored by the crowd! Thank you Paul for your music! I am glad you are in Atlanta!

MANTA:Paul Vogler and his two-piece group performed for a BBQ, and did a fantastic job! They helped set a perfect tropical theme, had a lot of variety, and their sound was outstanding. I would recommend them highly. Rick Walker
GOOGLE: Paul was GREAT! Paul added a special touch to my wedding. He played the steel pan during my ceremony and cocktail hour. Both my family and my husbands family really enjoyed Paul’s music. I’ve gotten so many compliments on his performance. He truly made our wedding that much more special and personalized. I would highly recommend his services because he did such a wonderful job. Renee A.
SUPERPAGES:A local favorite! I always get a kick out of seeing Paul Vogler and his Atlanta Steel Drum Band outside the Atlanta Aquarium, at the zoo, on the porch of the Georgian Terrace across from the Fox…. they seem to be popping up everywhere! Every single time there are hoards of folk dancing around, playing shakers and generally lost tin that moment in time, laughing and uninhibited. I have heard this music before, but Paul Vogler’s Atlanta Steel Pan Band takes me back to the islands… All I have to say is: Thank you guys! Look forward to seeing you again soon, and thanks for the sounds of freedom and joy you bring!
