ABOUT ME

Being fortunate to grow up in a family of musicians, Abdul started playing the Steel Drum from an early age. With over 20 years experience of traveling and performing in a steel orchestra and teaching, he then transitioned into performing as a Solo Steel Drum Act 8 years ago.

This new venture has seen to him provide background entertainment for a wide range of events, covering different cultures and functions such as; Weddings, Birthday Parties, Bar Mitzvah and Corporate events, just to name a few.

Some of his most recent performances have been at the 2014 and 2015 Arsenal supporters club party at Wembley, House of Commons and a number of Destination Weddings, namely Tenerife and Lyon.

Abdul comes with his own PA sound system, and can fit into minimal space if required.

Booked Steel Sounds for a Wedding
5.0   Verified review

I booked Abdul for my wedding on 22 June 2013 upon recommendation from a friend. He most definitely helped to make our day very special, playing as guests arrived and during dinner. Everything from Reggae to current chart music. He also took request , and was a hit with all our guests, both young and old alike. It as great to have a humble musician, with a strong passion for what he does.

As a caterer in the wedding business myself, I was looking at extending my list of preferred suppliers, and he was at the top. I have since booked him for a number of other events, including Black History month celebrations in Rugby, where the mayor attended, and was swaying to his music.

I will definitely recommend Abdul, as part of your special occasion.

At Muswell Methodist Church, we have enjoyed Abdul's music at our summer Open Gardens in 2015 and 2016. His music is mellow, harmonious, tuneful and gentle. It lifts the spirit, and sets the feet tapping - lovely for an outdoor occasion. Abdul has been very popular with the audience, and I am very pleased to recommend him.

Abdul's steel pan repertoire transforms the atmosphere with [url hidden]nfident at playing a great range of tunes from laid back lounge music, spiritual songs to party anthems. He makes it an occasion to remember.
