Absolutely Amazing

booked Gary Caribbean Steel Drums for their Wedding in Hertfordshire June 2022

“Gary just set the vibe i wanted straight away during the drinks reception. He was so happy and smiley which added to the caribbean party vibes i was planning on and which we had agreed on during our pre-wedding phone call. I couldn't have asked for a better musician to play at our wedding and set the tone for the day.”

booked Gary Caribbean Steel Drums for their Wedding in West Sussex December 2021

“Absolutely fabulous! Unfortunately, Gary himself could not be there but his stand in guy was great . I am sorry I didn't get his name but he made everybody happy with his wonderful music. It was a surprise for my daughter and her now husband, a pre-starter at the wedding breakfast that got everyone singing ready for the rest of the day. They loved it. Alive Network made the booking easy. Great communication throughout.”


Gary was excellent on our wedding day!
