“What a cool band! The Island Boys performed at my wedding ceremony and during my welcome drinks. They had a great repertoire and created a great atmosphere at the venue. Francis and the guys were really friendly and fun and very kindly let me have a go on the bongos during one of their songs which made for a good laugh and cool photos. Everyone commented on how great they were and how different it was to have a steel band perform at a wedding. Thank you!!”
