Michael Antoine of Sounds of Steel, is a second generation Steel Drum Player. The Sounds of Steel that originated in the Islands of Trinidad n Tobago with a New school twist. I have been playing the drum since the age of 9 yrs old, my father (George Antoine Sr.) brought the sounds of the Steel Drum to SWFL in the late 70's. He started a local band called SWFL Steel Drum Band. My brothers (George Antoine Jr., Harold Antoine) & Myself (Michael Antoine) continue to carry on the Legacy of our father. We are now Stronger than ever with the passion of the Pan in our hearts.
It was not only steel drums, it was music/DJ in between ... everyone enjoyed it although waited for pictures and Live video posts for the times he played the steel drums
Just exactly what we were looking for. He was courteous, professional and wonderful musician.
Was great everyone enjoyed the music
Steel Drum was perfect not to loud and perfect for my inside event. He did an outstanding job. Very professional and friendly, was prompt and prepared. I would for sure hire him again.
Michael was booked for a private poolside birthday celebration for our three granddaughters who were vacationing with us at Ft. Meyers. What a delight - the 3 girls and their brothers all danced (ages1-13) as he played. Their parents commented that he was one of the highlights of the trip. THe Denver granddaughter smiled and applauded throughout the performance and finally invited him to go home with her to her house. He won the hearts of all of us. Thank you for a wonderful, fun filled evening! Diana
Drummer was supposed to play as guests were seated, bride coming down isle, softly during ceremony and as guests were leaving....did not play as bride was arriving or during ceremony and was packing up to leave before any guests left. Mother-of-the bride spoke to him, said she had paid for an hour and he brought equipment back out again. Was supposed to play as mother-of-the-bride read the Irish Wedding Song and he didn't. For $300 it was a total disappointment!
Response from Sounds Of Steel:
I preformed as guest were arriving as discussed, i pperformed as bride and and bridal party walked down the isle as discussed. Not to mention i was told to started early due to rain clouds rushing in and i did so. When the wedding was over i proceeded to pack up and i was told that i wasnt finished so i set back up and continued to perform with the weather hanging over us. I preformed all songs requested. I was so far away that i could not even hear what was going on and was told i could not move any closer. I have never had a request to perform while the officiant is speaking so i did not. There also was no power provided for me to perform.
Sounds of Steel was great to work with - so easy for us! Great background music for our company poolside reception.
Everyone loved Sounds of Steel! Thank you for your part in making it a wonderful evening.
Thank you for adding the cherry on top of our party! The music was great and Michael is very kind and professional.
The music was great and professional . We would not hesitate to recommend to others
Great! Despite the deluge, Michael played for as long as he possibly could. The music was excellent and the event was enjoyed by all. Thanks Michael for staying as long as was safe...
Michael was the perfect choice for our event. He interacted with our guests, the song selection was spot on the the volume was great for listening and conversation!
Michael was hired to be our ambient steel drum player for a corporate event on the beach. He arrived early and was the ultimate professional. Music was excellent, he created just the atmosphere we were looking for. I am really glad we hired him. Thank you for your time and talent, Michael!
I hired Michael for a tropical themed corporate event. He was great and everyone commented how much they liked the music! He played continuously and also sang, which was a plus that I wasn't expecting. Great job and I would definitely recommend and hire again!!
He was great, music was fun. I would highly recommend Sounds of Steel.
We loved the music. Michael did a wonderful job!
On time, organized, ready to play. Friendly, talented, cooperative. Could not have asked for more.

Michael was totally awesome! He played at our wedding rehearsal party held poolside at LaPlaya in Naples. His music got everyone into the spirit of this tiki themed BBQ. Peoples were dancing, dining swimming and using the hot tub. I enthusiastically recommend him.
We had a BBQ/Pool Party at our Clubhouse for all the residents of Belle Lago. Michael Antoine did an awesome job of keeping us entertained with steel drum music. Thanks so much!!

Influences & Inspiration
You can say that i was born into the Steel Drum game, my father George Antoine Sr. Who actually started the first Steel Drum band in SWFL during the late 70's. He is no longer taking on any gigs at this time. No worries though, he has left his mark in the music world with his three very talanted sons. George Antoine Jr., Harold Antoine, and myself Michael Antoine. Born & bred with the passion of the pan in our hearts. As you can see i come from a long line of musicians so my influences come from within. At a very young age I was going on and learning the ways of the steel drum music industry. I feel this is what I was meant to do so here I am.
