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.

Beautiful music
Chris was pleasant and friendly and attentive to our needs. He played well. I should have been more clear about the timing of his playing, as we would have preferred more playing at the end of the service than the beginning, but I take responsibility for not making that more clear.

Dan Iives, Vice President Travelstore

I must admit Chris surpassed all our expectations on several levels. Not only is he an accomplished musician, performer, and entertainer, his music was just the thing for our event and quite a hit, but his low key, easygoing manner and upbeat personality added a very positive dimension to his participation in our event as well.
