Island Pete got to the venue early, got all set up and was ready to go when the party started. 75 minutes of constant steel drum sound, 15 minutes break, another 75 minutes. They made Caribbean party a success.
Response from Island Pete:
The pleasure was mine. Mr Tim Heely and his family and friends created a very warm atmosphere and made it a wonderful event to perform for.
We wish Dan and his bride nothing but happiness and bliss.Thanks again.
Island pete was very professional, he sounded great, and he was extremely easy to work with. I was more than pleased with doing business with him and will definitely recommend others to do so.
Pete was an absolute professional! Very personable and passionate. He added so much flavor to my Adult Caribbean themed birthday party that my guests didn't want to leave. I wouldn't search any further - Island Pete is your man!
We had a wonderful event with steel drummer Island Pete! Great drumming and backup sound to match. He was warm and patient with our senior population, and many got up to dance and had the best time in months! Highly recommend!
