"Thank you so much for playing at our home for our party. You made the party! Your setup was so professional, and the music was perfect for the occasion. Everyone at the party felt like they were already in Jamaica! I didn't have to worry about a thing because I knew you had it covered. The party wouldn't have been nearly as successful without you there. My husband and I will certainly be calling you in the future for similar occasions!"

Ray was truly amazing! He was professional, very accommodating, and a talented musician. Our guests are still talking about Ray's Island Sounds and were very impressed with his ability to bring that Caribbean paradise experience to our Texas Gulf-Coast Wedding Reception. Since my in-laws were so far away from home (Virgin Islands) it meant so much to them to hear the island sounds from someone who respected their cultural music. Truly an awesome and memorable family experience. Thank you Ray for your performance and service excellence...you made our event so special! Mr. Ian & Mrs. Roshanda Thomas Port O'Connor, TX

Ray's Island Sounds is FANTASTIC! I booked him for a wedding on a chartered boat. The bride, groom, and guests were huge fans by the time the boat docked at the end of the wedding! As the wedding planner, I enjoyed working with Ray. He was so accommodating, fun, and willing to go the extra mile..without being asked! He was always a step ahead of the game. I appreciate his hard work and of course his talent! Excellent music! Overall satisfaction was incredible!! Thanks so much, Ray!

Highly satisfied with Rays Island Sounds! Ray was very professional and has an amazing talent on top of a great attitude! He was a delight to have at our dinner event. The Board Members were thrilled to have such a fun and relaxing event in the middle of a hectic conference. Ray's music transported us from Texas to the Caribbean with only a few beats of the steel drum! Thank you Ray! You were great!
