    Wade came and played at our wedding celebration party last weekend. We got married in the Dominican Republic so we wanted to create a Caribbean vibe for our UK celebration. We thought a steel pan set would create the perfect atmosphere. This turned out to be one of the the best decisions we made as Wade was absolutely brilliant, and everyone loved him and his music!

    Wade arrived at the venue in good time and was flexible with his set timings. We also contacted Wade prior to the party and asked that he play alongside our photo slideshow and he came back to us straight away confirming that he was more than happy to do this. He was really helpful and sent us the timings of his songs so we could match exactly to the photo slideshow.
