    Hey Guys!

    Just in case you have never heard of him, I wanted to tell you about BOB.

    He is an AMAZING Steel Pan player. I don't know him but I came across his site when the FI and I were trying to find wedding music.

    Anyways, he plays a LOT of songs and he even sells his CDs or Music files. We are planning on buying some of his stuff soon.

    I am going to walk down the asile to this....i think it's even more beautiful than the original:

    YouTube - Pachelbel Canon - Reggae

    Here is his website for more infortion and you can find most of his stuff on You Tube too :)

    Just wanted to share!

        I stumbled upon him on YouTube as well!!! LOVE HIS STUFF!!! I ordered his mp3 files and we're going to use some of his songs for the ceremony. I really wanted to have a steel drum player, but what it was going to cost for a very short amount of time, we opted to play the music from an iPod.

            I know he is really good. I ordered his CD about a year ago off his site! I ended up getting 2 cd's and link for the mp3. all for the price of 1 cd. I am hoping to have a steel drum band play but if its not possible because of location of ceremony and cocktail hour I will use some of the songs from Bob Lyons

                Thank you so much for posting this. I want to have steel pan playing during my ceremony. I was thinking about asking my uncle since he is a professional player but not sure if he will be able to make it. This info is invaluable. Thanks a lot for posting.

                  So excited to run across this thread! We have been stressing over all the music and decided we are going to use his CDs during the ceremony and dinner. We found some other steel drum songs on Amazon we are going to download to add to the mix, but the majority will be his CDs. What a relief!!

                  We are still doing a playlist for the reception though, so we'll be working on that!
