Welcome to "Island Sounds"

(( ALERT:)) If you are interested in a destination wedding in the Caribbean-primairly Puerto Rico not including San Juan but in the western side of the island, I perform and reside there from November to mid May. I have all the contacts you need & venues. Feel free to contact me for assistance.

I am a solo steel drum artist based in
Rhode Island and serving the New England area in the late spring, summer and early fall. Please note I have over 250 bookings. I work very hard to try to make each event a memorable one.

Nothing can take the place of a human being playing live steel drums and percussion and the excitement it gives to the audience.

The music I play is very unique, uplifting and would enhance any party, wedding, corporate event or any other special occasion.

During my performance, I utilize digital "custom made" sequenced tracks on my I Pad, which also contains my sheet music, through a state of the art Bose sound system.
You will truly get the sound of a full band without the budget or space needed for a full band.
In addition, depending on the circumstances, I can also incorporate ethnic hand percussion instruments, chimes, cymbals, etc. in my solo act. This is a definite change from the mundane and typical jazz or guitar player/singer soloist cocktail hour acts.

Now that I am retired from being a public school teacher. I am also available to do school clinics/exhibitions.

I reside and perform in Puerto Rico during the winter months, and while I'm there feel free to contact me for any events.

I would enjoy spicing up your special occasion with some 'Island Flava'.

Jose arrived promptly for our party. He set up before the party and broke down after his performance both quickly and quietly. He worked well with our other performers. He was well prepared and very professional. He is a true artist. Our guests absolutely loved his musical performance. We received many compliments on his performance and we all had a great time. I would hire him again in a heartbeat and I give him my highest recommendation. Thanks Jose!

I am so happy that I booked Jose Costa for my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. He was the perfect finishing touch to a waterside venue. Jose was very accomodating to us. Our ceremony was delayed due to traffic and he gave us additional time over the 2 hours we had booked. His music was loved by everyone there young and old. I would hire him again in a heartbeat and highly recommend him!
