  • Shades of Steel brought sunshine to our Mother's Day Luau Party.
    Richards professionalism from the moment we contacted him to his performance at our party was outstanding. The music was so exceptional and his kind heartedness made him a pleasure to deal with. The party guest are talking about having a luau this summer just to repeat the atmosphere he brought to our party. If it is excellence and professionalism you are looking for, then shades of steel is the entertainment for you.Thank you again, Richard, for making our Mother's Day as special as we planned.

  • Richard was easy to book on gigsalad. We wanted entertainment at our end of the summer Tropical Luau for the members at the Marion Senior Center. Steel drums came to mind. I looked on the site and found Shades of Steel. I liked the fact that I was able to sample his sound before contacting him. He was a hit with the members and even gave a tutorial on the steel drum.
