This is the second year to have Ravon and his steel drums at our pool party event. Everyone loved this event, more than last year even, 100 people attended! I'm getting phone calls asking when we can do it again. Thank you so much.
Best decision we made when planning this party, was choosing Ravon! Amazing performer, in tune to the crowd, interactive, cheerful, fun. I never thought the best rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody that I ever heard would be performed by a steel drum player. And what a player he is! Very talented musician for sure. This party was a hit for sure ... thanks in large part to Ravon!
2nd time we have had him over, Ravon aka "Steely" is the hit of the party, just the best!
Cannot say enough good things about my experience with Ravon. He communicated well beforehand and was low maitenance in terms of what he needed. He was incredibly warm and friendly. He was a fantastic musician. What set him apart was the vibe. The range of music was super fun. We sang songs together. Everyone had an absolute blast. Highly, highly recommended.
Ravon did an awesome job performing at my daughter’s wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. I would highly recommend him for any event.
Ravon was very courteous and prompt. He set up quickly and got the party started. What a wonderful job he did. Everyone loved his music. He did plenty of requests as well.

Ravon was the delight of our luau party! He transformed our great party into THE PARTY! Very pleasant personality, great entertainer, and extremely talented steel drum player. Everyone complimented his music! Having him at your party will definitely take it to the next level.
My unable to answer direct question pertaining to my wedding. Did not want to be bothered so it seemed, as if this was not a good enough gig I guess.
Fantastic music everyone enjoyed themselves. He was so fun and likable and had such a great personality we feel like we made a new friend. Will definitely be having him at our next pool party!

I would definitely book him again and again!!
