Just let us know about the music styles you prefer. They will then provide the music to become the soundtrack of your special day.
The choice is completely yours. From Caribbean, Reggae to jazz and reggae. Or, contemporary pop crossover in a steel drum style.
Dinner / lounge music: Tasteful Jamaican steel drums and Latin jazz sounds make a great background music. Especially at restaurants, hotel lobbies and lounge bars. You can increase sophistication in the atmosphere with themed music too. For example, hiring a Caribbean band when a Caribbean menu is on the offer.
Romantic gestures: Thinking about a romantic marriage proposal? What's more romantic than creating an island holiday feel! You can arrange your steel drum player to show up at the restaurant or park, when you are ready to propose. They can burst into a soft Caribbean melody or your favourite love song. Providing the sunny soundtrack to this romantic moment.
Corporate impressions: Product launches, award nights, galas... Keeping your corporate attendees entertained can be difficult.
