Steel Drum Band at Island Themed Party, Clermont Florida, May 22 2014

RythmTrail made our Wedding Reception a CELEBRATION!!! My fiancé( now husband) and I were looking for a laid back, fun gathering of family and friends to serve as our first “Family Reunion” and Ephraim and the band were a perfect touch to a perfect day even allowing two of our quests to “play” the drums. I will definitely be looking for the opportunity to have RythmTrail at our next gathering.

Steel Drum Band at Wedding Reception, Cocoa Beach FL Dec 01 2013

With the final touch of Steel Drum Band RythmTrail our attendees at our recent Fall conference truly felt like they were on a cruise. The music was fantastic! We could not have asked for more! Exactly what we were looking for!

Thank you!

Ephraim,

Thank you so much for the wonderful music your artists provided at our company picnic. They were both entertaining and very talented. Everyone enjoyed the steel drums and the upbeat personalities of the performers.

We found them to be very professional. They arrived at the scheduled time and set up quickly. The music gave a real Caribbean flair to our event, which was exactly what we were looking for.

I will be sure to recommend your company to any of our associates who might be in need of your specialty music style.

Thank you again,

Steel Drum Band Duo at 50th Birthday Party, Windermere FL Oct 5 2013

John did a great job, he was there on time and was sensitive to the noise restrictions on the dock so the restaurant was very happy with him also. The music was perfect for the occasion. You guys made me look good in front of everyone (which is difficult in itself, lol). Would not hesitate to do this again and it is easy to recommend you without any hesitation, which these days is perhaps the ultimate compliment.

Kind Regards,

Martin.

Steel Drum Band at Birthday Party, Winter Park FL Sept 12 2013

Dear Ephraim
What a wonderful addition to our big bash for Richard’s 70th birthday – the music and the mood was very special indeed. So easy to work with and not a single hiccup. Your staff was marvelous, and my son in law and granddaughter who also performed had so many nice comment on how your staff worked with them to make their portion of the celebration go very smoothly. The staff at the Marriott World Center was also very complimentary of your organization. I would highly recommend RythmTrail to anyone who want to add something spectacular to their event. Good Job! It was great!

Sincerely,

Marbee Gingras

Steel Drum Music at Birthday 70th Party, World Center Marriott Orlando FL Aug 10 2013

“Ephraim brought a burst of the Caribbean’s finest traditions to my family’s home, filling the atmosphere with such great tunes it was hard to believe he was a solo act. I had dreamed for years of being able to give this gift to my father for his birthday. To my surprise, I found someone who not only was willing to arrive at the break of dawn, but also deliver an exceptionally lovely music performance that moved my whole family more than words could adequately express. This, despite the fact that the request was last minute. It was a unique experience and so much fun that my dad asked if we could bring the entire band to cover an event later this year. I earned major daughter points for this one and all it took was a simple phone call to RythmTrail Steel Drum Band!”

Steel Drum Music at Birthday Event, Orlando FL Aug 04 2013

RythmTrail provided a two-man steel drum band to play at Vicar’s Landing. (a large retirement community in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL) on the evening of June 20.  We held a “Beach Night” party in our dining room.

The band was FABULOUS.  By far some of the best entertainment we have had at Vicar’s. The music was beautiful and “fun” at the same time. The two performers sounded as good as an entire orchestra! Our residents loved the music and many even danced. Our wait staff formed a conga line and danced through the dining room at one point.

RythmTrail was the perfect band for our occasion and I highly recommend them!  We will definitely have them back again.

Steel Drum Music at Beach Night Event, Ponte Vedra Beach FL June 20 2013

Hi Ephraim.
First off we want to tell you what a wonderful evening everyone had with Dudley playing and singing to the crowd. He showed up on time and set up effortlessly. He was extremely polite and had a perfect adoring look and dress for the occasion. He played a fun Caribbean Birthday song that had us all laughing….just perfect. Secondly, we liked him so much that we would like to talk to you about now booking another date, but this time for our wedding. Dudley’s versatility in music showed us what he can do. Everyone commented on how beautiful the music and his voice was. Our friends on the beach who throw great parties all the time will be hiring RythmTrail as well. I will be happy to write more for any print you like. Ephraim, you made the booking easy and you are so prompt and professional.

Thank you so much.

I wanted to thank you for an amazing event. Your talent is a blessing. You MADE our event. With you exciting music the entire conference was dancing at one time or another.

Thank you, Thank you!!!!

Hi

Ali was wonderful and in addition to providing enjoyable music to listen to during our event, as the evening wore on, he played personal requests and engaged the whole group in a congo line, so not only does he play great music, he knows how to engage a group.

He showed up on time and stayed until the end and everyone really enjoyed his playing. If we have another event, we will definitely come back to Rythm Trail Steel Drum Band and most likely, will reqest Ali!

Hello Ephraim,

Once again you were a easy to work with during the booking phase, dependable, arriving comfortably ahead of the event. The music clearly set the tone for our party and was terrific to listen to. Our guests were very appreciative and made many complimentary comments. Thanks again for your music and we look forward to the next party!

Nancy and George Winn

Steel Drum Band at Rehearsal Dinner Party, Tampa FL, Oct 19 2012

Planning our wedding from out of state presented its own set of challenges, especially when it came to choosing vendors. RythmTrail made it easy and was the perfect choice for us! The online videos were a great representation of what they offer and made our decision easy. He played steel drums at our ceremony on the beach as well as at cocktail hour and then DJ’d our reception! It was great to have both options in one vendor! He showed up on time and was polite and courteous to everyone! The steel drums for the ceremony were exactly what we wanted! During the reception, he played music that kept our dance floor full all night! Communication was prompt and informative during the planning phase, usually within a few hours. I was never left to wonder. Payment was easy online. I would definitely recommend RythmTrail for anyone looking for great entertainment!

Thanks again Ephraim for being a part of our wedding day!

Sorry for the delay—I’ve been out of the office. Here is what the coordinator had to say regarding your drummer’s services:

“He was very nice…did his own thing, set up in a timely manner and even played where he was set up by the beach when everyone went over by the basketball courts to take pictures. He just kept playing away…I love that kind of music and it was perfect for a beach wedding…I would definitely recommend him again!”

RythmTrail was very prompt in responding to my request for a quote and I thought their pricing was reasonable for my Cocktail Hour and Wedding Ceremony in Naples. They were flexible in the dealing with changes in the ceremony start time and I was able to contact them any time. The best part of RythmTrail is that you can tell that the players enjoy what they do. Videos of other steel drummers during my research may have played well but they didn’t ‘feel’ the music like RythmTrail.

This is the second year in a row that we have hired RythmTrail to play steel drum at Robert’s annual birthday beach party. The same guy (Ali) played both years and was fantastic! The company was more than professional and timely about the booking and the steel drum playing was amazing. Both years the guests loved it! We already can’t wait to hire you guys again for next year!

Dusty of Steel Drum Band RythmTrail arrived on time and smiling. He was courteous and professional. His set-up was accomplished in mere minutes and the wedding guests were charmed by his music. Dusty played contemporary tunes prior to the ceremony and seamlessly transitioned into classical selections chosen specifically by the bride. Dusty was a pleasure to work with and we will always recommend Steel Drum RythmTrail to our clients.

Thank you for making a happy memory for our bride and groom.

Dear Ephraim,

Thanks so much for travelling to Longboat Key, playing steel drum at our beach wedding ceremony, and being our DJ at the dinner and dance! Our guests absolutely LOVED the steel drum!! Your DJ skills were great, we appreciate you using the majority of the song we requested and then adding in a few of your own to keep the party going! Most of all, thanks for learning our requested steel drum songs for the ceremony…that really meant a lot to us!

All the best!
Mr. & Mrs. Ryan Martinson

Steel Drum Band Entertainment at Beach Wedding in Longboat Key Florida on May 31 2011

You were awesome! Not only did you out perform what I asked of you, you were creative and flexible during the free time and made the party what it was by getting everyone moving and you understood exactly what it was that Sean and I were looking for.

The steel drums at the ceremony and cocktail hour were awesome, beautiful and beachy, it gave our beachside terrace ceremony the perfect laidback, airy feel! Everything I wanted, timed to perfection.

The DJ-ing into the evening was fantastic, you were right on schedule, friendly, personable, and flexible to requests. You really got my guests up and moving and kept it going all night long! We had a mixed group and you jived for us all night, everyone raved and said they haven’t danced that much in years we had ages 15-84 up and at it dancing all night!! My 84 year old grandma, who just had knee replacement surgery in January, was out there all night…..she even out-danced us youngsters! You really got her moving.

Hi Ephraim!

Your steel drum artists at our wedding were excellent! They arrived on time, set up quickly and played the music for our ceremony so beautifully. Because our wedding took place on the beach, steel drums seemed only fitting. Our guests were so impressed by the music and our music selection, some even sat right next to the drummers and couldn’t get enough! Having the steel drummers made our wedding seem so tropical and relaxing – it was a pleasure doing business with Rythm Trail. Thank you!

Ephraim did an outstanding job at our corporate social event! From our first contact through event night, he was both highly professional and courteous, answering emails quickly, providing proof of insurance to our venue and arriving promptly. And his music was terrific – authentic and beautifully played with a big dose of fun and super laid back atmosphere. It was exactly what we hoped for, and I wouldn’t hesitate to hire him again or to recommend him to others.

I highly recommend anyone needing to hire a steel drum band to call Ephraim and the RythmTrail Band. We had a birthday party outside and we live on the water so it seemed only fitting to have the Steel Drums . Ephraim sent Dusty to play for us. He was AWESOME !! One of the most gracious and kindest persons we have ever met. The party lasted a little longer then I had hired for and he had no problem staying over even with a long drive home. We will certainly do it again next year. I can promise you Dusty will be here too. Dusty was wonderful but I have to say that the professional way Ephraim did business with me was also impressive. You do not have to worry about anything. I was a little nervous about not having a way to hear Dusty prior to the party and Ephraim took the time to email me You Tubes to watch and listen to. I was so grateful . I cant really say enough good things about our whole experience. I need to say one thing..Every time my husband and hear the steel drum now we think of our party and what a great night it was.. The Steel Drums are in our hearts forever..

Thanks so much for the memories..

Live Steel Drum Music at Wedding Rehearsal Dinner Party in Seminole Florida April 8 2011

Dear Ephraim,

When we started to plan for our daughters baby shower there wasn’t a plan for live music. My husband and I love Caribbean Music. My husband Jim asked me to search the internet for Steel Drum music and that’s when I found your website. As someone who relies on the internet for our business, I put a lot of stock in a company’s website that I may do business with. Your website was perfect and there were no surprises, even making the payment was simple and trusted.
This baby shower was for our oldest daughter, her husband and our very first Grandchild. We wanted to day to be perfect and represent our joy. Ephraim, we want you to know that you made our day PERFECT. Our guests said this was the best Baby Shower they had ever attended and the music pushed this day over top. Ephraim you knew what the perfect volume should be, what music should be played, I know we could have made our own music selections but you took this pressure off of us. We had over 60 guests and everyone loved your music. Today the day after the party I have been emailing your information to so many.
Our 2nd daughter and her husband are having twins and their Baby Shower will be in June and I’m sure you will be part of our plans.

Thank you,
Debbie and Jim Smith

I highly recommend Ephraim and the RythmTrail Steel Drum Band. We first heard him at our friends’ wedding in West Palm last March, and we loved him so much we knew we wanted the same for our tropical-esque orchid/nautical wedding. So, needless to say, we had him play the steel drums outdoors for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour on March 5, 2011 at Omni Resorts in Champions Gate, FL. During the planning process, he was easy to get in touch with and quick and reasonable with negotiations and planning. His website made payments easy, and he was on time for the event which is always a must! More importantly, he played the drums beautifully and set the tone for a beautiful evening.

As someone who’s a bit picky and knowledgeable in Caribbean music, we were beyond thrilled and your Steel Pan Man far exceeded all our hopes. We especially appreciate for the number of other special requests. You made what is hard work look effortless, helped set the tone and mood and were a huge part of making the night such a hassle and stress-free success. We’ve also heard nothing but rave reviews from our guests and still have people telling us about how much they loved the band (I think you’re going to have people talking for quite some time). Please pass along our most sincere gratitude to your phenomenal band. We will certainly recommend your group every chance we get. Thanks again for everything! In tremendous appreciation,

Man, we will hire these guys again in a heartbeat! The day after Christmas was 28 degrees – freezing cold by Orlando standards – so we had to station our 2-member band indoors instead in the backyard as originally planned. Amazing: these delightful musicians adjusted, the music did not overwhelm, and yet the place rocked with fun, fun, fun! Their happy Caribbean music brought the best out of everybody: our little nephews danced with abandon, couples joined in, everybody tapped their feet and bounced to the beat, people laughed and chattered and had the absolute best time. These talented men knew when to be quality background music and when to interact a bit w/ the crowd – with taste and without intruding or taking over. Our extended family and neighbors still talk about that event! We can’t wait to have another party so we can book these guys again. Oh how I wish we could hire them EVERY WEEKEND!!! Their music is fantastic and they are wonderful people!!!

First thank you so much for a great presentation. I loved the fact that the steel drum player was timely and handled himself very professionally. The song selections were perfect for the Cruise Ship Theme of this birthday party. In fact, if it were not for having a DJ, we would have requested your services for the entire event.

I would recommend this company to any and all who ask about a Steel Drum Band group. The set up and break down was seemless and did not distract the rest of the activities going on.

Thank you again for your services and we look forward to using you all again in the future.

Take care,

Ephraim played Steel Drums and DJ’d at our wedding on St. Simon’s Island in Georgia. As everyone who’s gotten married knows, everything was a blur, and details are fuzzy. So here’s what we remembered.

Prior to the wedding, Ephraim was always quick to get back to us and gave quick, no nonsense answers. A plus for people are constantly working. When delivering our must not play list (and play list) he pointed out the inconsistencies and asked us what we would prefer. (I feel like most people wouldn’t have bothered to ask.)

At the wedding, I, the groom, asked to walk down the aisle to the Harry Potter theme (from the movie). He learned the song for me and played them on the Steel Drums flawlessly. I couldn’t have been happier. Also, my new brother in law was to sing that he wrote for us at the ceremony. Not wanting to bring a lot of equipment on an airplane, Ephraim kindly lent him the plugs, microphones and speakers that our guest needed. Something he did not have to do, but did. Thank you Ephraim.

During cocktail hour we were off getting pictures taken, but from what we heard, the drums sounded wonderful. All of our guests complimented him and the fantastic touch that he added to our island wedding. His prices are far more reasonable than anyone else we looked at. A great alternative to just a plain ol’ DJ.

At the reception, he played each of our requested songs, and the guests had a blast dancing all night long. We had a lot of must play songs, including classic rock, rock, dance music and traditional wedding music. He made all of it feel seamless and everything came together nicely.

And on one other note, at the end of the night, we accidently overpaid Ephraim by hundreds of dollars. (My wife thought we forgot to pay the remaining balance, and so paid him twice.) At the after party, he seeked us out to return the remaining amount. A truly honest, as well as talented, man.

One bit of advice if you book Ephraim (and if you’re having a beach wedding, you have to), be clear about what and when you have music played. At the reception, events like the father daughter dance, mother son dance, speeches were going by REALLY quick. But we didn’t iterate that we wanted everything spaced out, so our wedding planner took notice and slowed him down a little. And during the ceremony, my bride missed walking down the aisle to her song, Over the Rainbow. I don’t know whether this is my oversight, Ephraim’s, or our wedding planners, or a mix of the three of us. Just remember to communicate more than I did.

Overall, you have to book Ephraim. He’s super talented, which included learning music for the ceremony that I don’t think he would have played before, and possibly playing music that I’m sure he didn’t own. (Our first song was “Married Life” from the movie Up.) Don’t miss out on Rhythm Trails. They helped make our wedding as great as it was. (And I wouldn’t have changed a thing.)

Steel Drum Music and DJ Services at Tim Koehler Wedding Oct 2 2010 Jekyll Island Georgia

My husband and I were married in a private ceremony, in Negril, Jamaica. However, we wanted to share our happiness with family and friends. So, we hosted a cocktail reception two months later. We really wanted a steel drummer to capture the Caribbean vibe, as we were married in Jamaica and my family is Jamaican. I contacted many steel drumming companies to get quotes for a steel drummer for the cocktail hour. Rythmtrail was very prompt in responding to all email questions and I enjoyed the music samples on the website. Rythmtrail steel drum band did not disappoint. I knew our vision was realized as Bob Marley’s “Is This Love” was playing as my husband and I arrived in our limo to greet our guests.

The online booking was incredibly easy, Ephraim’s email communication was perfect for me because I work full time and it was great to be able to write/respond from my iPhone at any time.
The morning of the wedding he arrived early and was so accommodating regarding the use of his microphone for speeches, the minister, etc… and he played every song we requested.
We got so many compliments on the Steel Drum music and regarding what an absolute gentleman Ephraim is. He had everyone dancing and we all had a complete blast!
I can’t thank him enough for the exceptional performance and extreme professionalism.

Hello Ephraim,

I want to sincerely thank you for help making my party a success. In spite of the heavy rain, your company still came through for my party and was there before time to set up and get started before your time to start the show. I personally was not there to see the performance, BUT my guests were very pleased and impressed by Dusty’s performance. They loved how Dusty was able to play all kinds of music and also sing along with the beat. Because it was the holiday season, I am happy that he played some Christmas songs. I can tell you that my guests were very, very happy. I am only sad that I was not able to enjoy Dusty’s performance as my quests did. I know you will probably get more business as my guests were fascinated and pleased with his performance. I am a very satisfied customer because my guests were very happy and my party turned out wonderful.

Thank you again and I would definitely recommend Rythmtrail.

Ephraim, Thank you and Rhythm Trail so much for the awesome performance you gave at our post-nuptial party on October 23rd at the Florida Aquarium in Tampa, Florida. All of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music and how well it went with our Caribbean theme. The band members were so energetic and inspiring throughout the evening and the selection of music was terrific. I know we could not have found a band who would have made us any more pleased than we were. Thanks so much for playing for us. The Aquarium was also terribly impressed and plan to recommend your band for other parties. I wish you all well, and would definitely use your group again should the opportunity arise. Thanks for all your happy smiles and great sounds!

Many of our guests commented that it was “so cool” and “really unique” that we had a steel drummer as part of our wedding. Additionally, you helped keep our party going with your song selections; all of our guests of varying generations were able to dance at one point or another throughout the reception. We really appreciate your passion for what you do; you exceeded all of our expectations. Thank you so much!

He was trustworthy, affordable, prepared, entertaining, easy to contact during the planning stage and kept the night flowing. Josh and I enjoyed picking our entire song list, and Ephraim was able to find some of our more obscure requests. He provided the sound system for our officiate and didn’t nickel and dime us! If you are in need of the entire  entertainment package, don’t look any farther!

Ephraim Adams and RythmTrail did an outstanding job entertaining at our recent school function. The over 400 people in attendance thought he was the most talented steel drum entertainer they had seen and hope to use him for their own future engagements. He is capable of keeping a crowd of all ages entertained while also great for background music as well. Ephraim was quite a gentleman, hard working and cooperative. I would highly recommend him to any person interested in this type of entertainment. Thank you Ephraim for a wonderful evening.

Steel Drum Band performance at St Jude Cathedral St Petersburg Florida Sept 21 2009

Ephraim, We can’t sing your praises enough. You did such an amazing job with steel drums for the ceremony and cocktail hour! It was so awesome to walk down the aisle to a steel drum version of here comes the bride. You then transitioned into being the DJ for our wedding and it was seamless. You were the one part of the wedding day that was not a worry to us. With so many other things to worry about, it was such a relief that you showed up way ahead of time and had everything set up on your own. You are very professional and self sufficient. I think the only thing I even had to tell you was where to set up the DJ table and you took everything from there. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed you and the steel drums. It really added a special touch to our wedding.
Thanks for making everything such a breeze,

Jaime and Joe.

Hi Ephraim, Unfortunately, I was only there for 2 songs at the reception but what I heard I was happy with and my guests did rave about how great he was. He was also great at the ceremony. Would I use him again? Definitely, his spirit was great and fit with us as a couple and with our guests. I did wish that we had more time with him.

Hi Ephraim, Well….you did it! Your steel drum entertainment was a huge success and everyone enjoyed your music. Playing poolside at the Castillo Real Hotel was a great idea the night before the wedding. Everyone loved your music, some danced and some sat back and relaxed but a good time was had by all!. Although the sunset wedding started out with a little rain, it stopped and your steel drum music brightened the day and the music was perfect for the beach wedding at Anastaisa State Park. Thank you so much for the wonderful music. You made the process stress free and easy to book, especially for my destination wedding in St Augustine Florida. We would highly recommend you to everyone!

My wife and I thought a live steel drum band would be different but also perfect for our annual 4th of July party, and Ephraim’s
Rythmtrail came through for us brilliantly! Ephraim plugged in with the perfect mix of professionalism, talent and variety.  Our many guests mentioned to us how fantastic the band was as well. We will definitely be repeat clients!

Dear Ephraim,

Dusty was great. On time, friendly, fit in well with the crowd and kept the music going. It was a perfect music choice for both the picnic as well as the location. Many people commented how much they liked the music, and how much it added to the company picnic. Thank you – planning company picnics can be crazy but your group made the music portion worry-free!
Two people asked me for information on the band, as they would like to use you in the future. So, you may be getting additional calls!

I have hosted two parties in the last three months using Rhythm Trails, and they were a great success! Everyone from age five to eighty had a great time dancing in the street! I am now the coolest aunt around, and my neighbors can’t wait until we do it again! Both times there were no worries about whether they would be on time or professional, and we were sorry to see the parties end! Thank you for making my parties come alive!

Thank you for everything!

My new husband and I were EXTREMELY satisfied with Ephraim! The steel drums set the perfect mood for our ceremony and his DJ service was even better. Throughout the night I seemed to notice the song choice. Even getting a second look at the videos there always seemed to be the perfect song playing!!! Since the wedding we have had a number of friends comment on how good  the DJ was. From previous experience I have learned…….music can make or break a good reception:) THANKS!!!!!!

Thanks again,

Hi Ephraim!

Thank you so much for everything! Our guests had a wonderful time! :)
The steel drummer was amazing! His performance was the highlight of our cocktail reception. Our guests couldn’t get enough of the music coming from the steel drum, which made it hard for us to end the cocktail reception to begin the main reception! Anyone looking for a Steel Drummer should look no further then RyhtmTrail!

Rhythm Trail is awesome. Ephraim is very talented and professional performer. I hired RythmTrail for an elementary children’s program. All the children and teachers loved it! It was during the children’s lunch time but he had them dancing in their seats, shaking maracas and doing the limbo out the door. It was a pleasure to listen to and I highly recommend them to anyone that wants to enjoy true island music.

Here is a Reference from a Past Client “Rich Lord “ to a Potential Client “Dil” who was considering booking RythmTrail  (exact words with typos and everything)

Dil,

We thought he was absolutely wonderful, excellent professional man. Yes the tone was Fantastic. Are guests felt like we had taken them to the Islands for are wedding. The wedding and reception had a tone set for everyone to have a wonderful time. We interviewed several at the time 9-12 months ago don’t remember the names now. RythmTrail stood out above all. We was on Time, Actually early to get set up and find out last min. details from the wedding coordinators. I will hire him in the future for other events. After hearing his music and talking to Ephraim we stopped are search as we knew he was the one for us. Very accommodating. We would highly recommend RythmTrail for your wedding, or any other event needing the Island Vibe. Sorry for the delay in returning answers for you, We just returned from are honeymoon in the Bahamas.

P.S.

Having RythmTrail play at are wedding got us started in the Island mood for are honeymoon in the Bahamas.

I want to thank Rhythm Trail for their wonderful performance. They performed in three different events for a total of 600+ people and it turned out great!! They are very professional in what they do, to include their appearance and presentation. They provided us with exceptional customer service from the time I contacted them to the very end. Everyone in the event loved it and enjoyed dancing to the music. They even engaged the guests by playing music the guests requested. The event was a hit and I have to say it had a lot to do with Rhythm Trails’ performance. I definitely recommend them.

Thank you (Ephraim) for your gracious performance at our daughter and son’s wedding. Numerous guests commented on your beautiful music and pleasant demeanor.

From the beach, to the outside patio at the club, to the inside dining hall, you never missed a beat. We threw you a few curves requesting a couple extra songs at the last minute. Not only did you come through for us but you came through smiling all the way. You were so expedient and discreet moving from one location to another I don’t think anyone even noticed.

Thanks again for your patience, courtesy, cooperation, professionalism, and outstanding music. You added even more beauty to Falyn and Beck’s beautiful day. We commend you for a job well done and extend our highest recommendations.

Cheryl & Dan Mizell, Steel Drum Player at Wedding Tarpoon Springs Florida. May 3 2008

Ephraim played at my wedding on Sunday. I did alot of research on the different steel drum players I watched their clips and was deciding between him and another group because I could tell he had great energy. In the end I choose Ephraim because of his price and I thought he would be great. My wedding was on the beach and the reception was on the pool deck. He set up on the beach and played soft music while my guests were arriving and he also played as I walked down the aisle and during different parts of the ceremony itself. Originally I wasn’t going to have him play for the ceremony but I’m glad I did because it made it really nice. It was very soft not overpowering. I didn’t even know he did vocals until he was performing at the reception and I must say he was great. He basically played whatever he wanted and we loved it all. He barely ever took a break. The only song we did have him play was the song we danced to and we brought the CD and he played it for us. He was better then I ever imagined he would be. All of my guests loved him and I would definitely book him again.

Jessica, Steel Drum Band Entertainment at Wedding Sanibel Island, Florida. 05/18/2008

I cannot believe Trey & I have been married for a little over a month now! I had to send you an email to tell you thank you so much for the beautiful music at our wedding. I am sorry I was unable to meet you, but I heard great comments from my guests. You definitely set the mood exactly like I wanted it to be! If there is ever an occasion where I or someone I know needs a steel drummer, I would definitely recommend you. You were professional and always responded quickly to my questions. Thank you!

Mikaela Rivera Beide, Steel Drum Band at Wedding – Daytona Beach Shores. May 25 2008

Ephraim You were great! Everyone absolutely enjoyed the music and your singing and your song choices were perfect.

Kelly, Provided Steel Drum Player for a house party in Vero Beach Florida. Aug 31 2008

Ephraim was a great amenity to our tiki party. He traveled to Maryland to play our tiki party and was very accommodating with the whole process. From the start, there was great communication and quick response (something that I have found challenging when trying to book other musicians). Upon Ephraim’s arrival, he was very professional and everyone at the tiki party loved him. In addition to his great job on the pans, he also sounded great vocally. The only thing he didn’t deliver was the sunshine! I would highly recommend Rhythm Trail for your event. I really can’t say enough good things about his playing and professionalism. RythmTrail will definitely be a part of our future parties, just make sure, Ephraim, that you bring good weather with you!

We will definitely use Dusty and Rythm Trail again. Thanks for Great Service.

Ephraim. I wanted to thank you and Dusty for all of your help with our beach wedding last weekend. You and Dusty were very easy to work with and extremely professional. Dusty’s music was the hit of the wedding and all of the guests loved his performance. I would recommend you and Dusty to anyone looking for a high quality steel drum performance. I know that my wedding planner at the resort said that she would continue with your services for future events. Thank you for everything. You guys are great.

Steel Drum Band performance at Rena Stacy, Wedding Winter Park Florida – Oct 19 2008

Dusty (RythmTrail) played for my daughter’s wedding and he was fabulous and it takes a lot to impress me. From the beginning of the wedding to the end. He could play anything: religious, classical, oldies, you name it. I have to say his playing set the whole tone for the wedding, from walking down the aisle to saying good-bye. If this is not enough give me a call and I will tell you more. I have performed many weddings and also been to a good number and I loved this one! Thank you for your service it was wonderful!

Steel Drum Music at Dr. Vaughan Stanley, Wedding Buena Vista Water Sports, Buena Vista Florida – Nov 1 1008

Thank you so much for the wonderful music you played at my daughter’s wedding! You were amazing and we have had so many compliments from our guests. I thought it was so nice you played the entire time even though the wedding was over and we were cleaning up – we all loved hearing the beautiful sound while we were still there cleaning up. Our little granddaughter danced and danced all by herself and you were very gracious to play for her! Thank you so much for making this a great day for all of us and our guests!

My compliments to Ephraim for adding the finishing touch to my daughter’s beach wedding November 8.Our guests truly enjoyed your music…I only wish I had taken the time to sit and listen to more of it myself! Do you have a CD we could purchase for the reception the couple are planning back in Indiana? We would like to take a bit of the beach back home with us!

Steel Drum Band Performance at Boat Launching Event, Sunset Marina Club Miami Beach Florida – Nov 15 2008

Ephraim was professional and had professional equipment, played cheerily and was very organized. Many of our 700 museum event attendees commented that they loved his delightful music, which was a combination of familiar tunes such as Gloria Estefan’s Conga and unfamiliar traditional music. I recommend Ephraim of RythmTrail to anyone who wants fun, danceable glitch-free entertainment.
