I had the pleasure of working with RythmTrail Steel Drum Band for the first time on October 1, 2013. I had booked the Trio and they were very professional, on time and went above and beyond the call of the contract. The bands stage area was switched 3 different times and Ephraim and the rest of the band were very accommodating with all the confusion. The band sounds great and has the Island Groove Sound! I would definitely use them again and again and ………. Thank you for a great night!

Steel Drum Music at Corporate Reception, Tampa FL May 16 2012
Found the artist very respectful, kind and courteous He was an excellent performer and really set the mood for our Luau theme party. He was set up to go almost an hour before he was supposed to, and started playing almost 30 mins before I had asked him to (which was a great thing). He was easy to work with, and knew all the songs I would have expected him to perform. He commanded a stage presence and was very friendly. I would definitely rehire Steel Drum Band RythmTrail for any other Beach/Caribbean themed party we ever have. Very professional company and easy to work with. Very good in staying in contact with there clients and the online automated system for placing a deposit and paying for the event is very simple and easy to use.

We had one person on steel drums from RythmTrail for our family reunion at Tuckaway Shores Resort and couldn’t have been more pleased.

Hi Ephraim –
Thank you so much for providing such a fabulous time at our wedding – the music was fantastic, fun and a surprise for our guests.
I have always loved the sound of the steel drum but was not sure if it would work well in a wedding environment – once I heard you start I knew I had made the right choice. Your professionalism is a stand out in your business….planning and choosing music via email could have been a problem – with your group it was a pleasant surprise.
Thank you again!

Steel Drum Band at Community Picnic Event, Nokomis FL April 1 2012
When our dear friend lost his battle with cancer at age 42 we were left to grapple both with his loss and with his wish not to have a funeral or memorial service. Instead we decided to throw a party in celebration of his life, and his love of cruise vacations provided the theme for the evening. I was apprehensive about hiring a steel drum band because I didn’t want the occasion to be too over-the-top, or to seem disrespectful. When you came to set up and we discussed the situation I could tell immediately that you “got it”. We couldn’t have been more thrilled with your professionalism and with your sensitivity toward the occasion. You set exactly the right tone throughout the evening, giving us just the atmospheric cruise ship “pool deck” feel that we wanted, and that our friend would have greatly enjoyed. Thank you so much for making the entire evening extremely special for all of us!
