So glad we had Chris play at the event. It was the highlight of the night and set the mood. He played great songs that everyone knew and loved. Can’t say enough good things and will book Chris again for sure!

Professional and delightful
We had Chris provide music for the cocktail hour of an engagement party. He was professional, on time, a one-man band. Guests were delighted by the live music and it added some sparkle to the party. Everyone loves steel drum.

Chris Arpad was the perfect selection for entertainment for our 16th Annual Golf Dinner. The crowd loved his drumming skills along with his melodic vocals. He sang songs that appealed to all age groups in the crowd. He was definitely a 5-Star guy and I would definitely book him again.

Transported us to St. Lucia
Chris did a wonderful job of keeping the night fun and romantic for our surprise honeymoon dinner! Played a mix of upbeat island songs. He showed up early and was very kind! Will definitely keep him in our back pocket for the future.

Great Steel Drummer
Chris Arpad is great to work with. He came prepared; arrived early; was most cooperative and friendly; and most importantly, played musically and well. This gig was an odd one for a steel drummer, as Chris had to play with big orchestra and choir, which he did fabulously. Highly recommended.
