This is our fourth time hiring Toby for our Global Village event. We also hire him each May for our International Reception during commencement week. His sound is light, fun, and always sets the right mood for us. Toby is friendly, reliable, and easy to work with. Ask him about the history of the steel drum and prepare to be educated!

A tropical musical delight! Toby Tobas brought the sounds of the islands to the Cape! He entertained our company with favorites and requests and even gave a mini lesson on how to play the steel drums! I wouldn't host another Clambake without him!

I have an annual "welcome summer" cocktail party and always have some kind of musical entertainment. My theme this year was Calypso and I found Toby online and hired him for the event. He far exceeded my expectations. I was greeted by a musician whose professionalism was evident from the start. His talent is amazing and the sound he creates is truly special. Most of my 80 guests complimented him personally. Toby set the tone of the evening and everyone had a marvelous time. I hope he is available for all my events. Sincerely
