I am a brand new member on this site and you can find reviews for me under "Island Sounds" in Fort Myers on other listing sites.

I will provide you and your guests with the highest quality and full range of island sounds (Caribbean and/or Hawaiian) as background and ambiance music for your event, using steel drums, guitar, ukulele, tracks, vocals, and my sound system. This type of ambiance and sound is what you will find on cruise lines in the Caribbean or the Pacific or on the islands themselves. The range can be from simple acoustic steel drums for a wedding or cocktail hour to the full mix of instruments. And if you want your guests to get up and dance, I can also switch the mode and turn up the volume and energize a party with full band sound and music by adding band members or as a soloist.

The audience experiences the original sounds of the Caribbean Islands where I was born and started playing music as a very young child. I play island music (Caribbean and Hawaiian) on steel drums, guitar, ukulele, and I also sing the famous songs of the Caribbean, Hawaii, and popular American favorites. All music is live with no pre-recorded tracks. Performances can range from solo steel drums as background and event music, to full band shows with steel drums, guitars, vocals, percussion, and more. The audience hears all of the famous and classic songs of the islands, from Belafonte's Jamaica Farewell, Island in the Sun, and the Banana Boat Song (Day O), to Bob Marley's One Love, Three Little Birds, and much more, to Elvis's Blue Hawaii, Aloha Oe, and Can't Help Falling In Love. You will think that you are in the Caribbean, Hawaii, or on a luxury cruise liner.

BIOGRAPHY: If you want the best of the islands, search no further. Patrick was born in the Caribbean into a musical family. He and his brothers have been playing island music for over 45 years. He is highly versed and accomplished as a steel drummer, guitarist, ukulele player, and as a vocalist. He plays as a soloist, or as part of a duo, or band. He also plays Hawaiian music to offer you the best of all island music. As a member of the bands, The Geckos and Bermuda Blue, he has performed for fifteen years as the "house band" at the famous Ram's Head in Annapolis, MD where many of the world's premiere artists have played. Since the early 90's the bands have been booked for several hundred events both public and private. His unique style is that "original sound" straight out of the islands. His major influences include Harry Belafonte, Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley, The Merrymen, Sparrow, and others. He has played for hundreds of couples on their wedding day. Patrick and his band are the first steel drummers to introduce the incredible tongue steel drum for weddings. This amazing instrument, made by his musical band member, Kevin Martin, who owns Rockcreek Steel Drums, a steel drum manufacturer, captures the sounds of the wedding bells from the cathedrals of Medieval Times and brings them to the wedding. He has also played for dozens of private parties, corporate functions, and dinners. He will also arrange for duos and full band shows. Patrick works closely with the event planner to bring the original sounds of the islands to your event. He has also played for major public events including July 4th celebrations, city festivals, and island celebrations. See press article in the Cape Coral Breeze, July 5, 2007.
