​​​​STEEL MARGARITA   The "Island Girl"                         Steel Pan Music

How did it all begin? I was longing for a way to combine my love of percussion instruments, Trop-Rock music, beaches, and the tropical lifestyle. After being inspired by several steel pannists, I decided to pursue studying the Steelpan, and now the rest is history!

A Few of Steel Margarita's Recommendations

4/1/17 It's not a party until the steel drums begin go play! It's not a real party without the Caribbean sound of Steel Margarita's "Steel Paradise" CD pouring out of your speakers. "Steel Paradise" is attending all of my tropical parties, and it should be at yours!

Don "D" Pyrate Winfield, ShoreRadio.com

3/1/17 Cool, breezy steel drum interpretations of your island favorites expertly performed by Steel Margarita. Cue her CD up for your next summer pool party!

Dennis King, Island Time Radio Show, WBWC, Cleveland, OH


Steel Margarita played for our 22nd Annual New England Parrothead Convention. Everyone loved her upbeat and happy music! It gave a great touch to our "Christmas in the Caribbean" theme!

Sue Nelson, President, Ocean State Parrothead Club

1/1/17 We have had Steel Margarita Band play 3 times at our annual Metro Parrothead Club party at the cockail hour. We have been more than pleased with her charm and musical talents! She brought our entering guests into a wonderful tropical frame of mind with her Caribbean steelpan sounds. I highly recommend her!

Thomas Pfeiffer, President, METRO Parrothead Club of NY, NJ & CT

7/1/16 Dear Terry, Just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks for your performance at our daughter's wedding last Friday evening. From start to finish, you were a pleasure to deal with. We especially appreciated your willingness to work with Katie to insure that you played a selection of music that she owould enjoy. During and after the wedding, our guests commented that you made them feel like they were away on a tropical island vacation without having to get on an airplane! We can't wait until the next occasion when we can hear you play. We enjoyed your 2-piece Band very much! Warmest regards, Grace O'Brien

10/1/16 Rehearsal Dinner Party: We had Steel Margarita play at our rehearsal dinner/pre-wedding party for all our wedding party guests who came down the night before our wedding and it was perfect! She played all songs that got everyone up and dancing, including the limbo which everyone loved! She also played a special happy birthday for our 3 birthday guests. She was very professional and made our party a hit!!! I definitely recommend her for anyone who wants to have a great party! Christian and Nicole Florio, Long Beach Island, NJ

March 1, 2015 Terry did a fabulous job playing her steel drum! Her music gives off a FUN and ENERGETIC vibe!! We received numerous compliments from our customers about Terry's performance. Our staff and customers were having a great time dancing along to the beat. We highly recommend Terry! We are using her for all of our upcoming sore events! Thanks, Christine Sicurella & the Vineyard Vines Manhasset Team

March 1, 2014 Our organization used Terry Muldoon for a small get together that included our faculty and staff. The feedback that we received from Terry's playing was fantastic! She set the mood for our tropical theme in February and her playing was spot on. She elevated our event to a new level!
We needed to hire a true professional, someone who is insured and would not let us down. Terry was on time and was very easy to work with.
We have already discussed using her again for a summer event and any other events where her talents will apply. We can recommend her without hesitation and guarantee you will not be disappointed! Sincerely, Capt. James F. Tobin '77, President

Steel Margarita was the hit of the party! We had Steel Margarita play for my husband's birthday party. What a blast we all had! She played such a variety of songs that all were able to dance and sing along. Great music for even our youngest nieces and nephews-so perfect for all ages! Her equipment was perfect for our outdoor event Looking forward to having her back next year! Marion Benesh, Manahawkin, NJ

Totally felt like I was on a tropical vacation during the show. Would like to see more of Steel Margarita during the winter, she brings her own sunshine with her. She leaves you feeling like summer hasn't ended! Sincerely Martha Mallia, Hicksville, New York

June 1, 2014 Thank you so much for making our party so festive on our party boat. Even our old folks enjoyed your music! Everyone loved the steel drum just like me. You added so much to a fun time on the boat. Sincerely, Helen and George Auletta Long Island, NY

June 30, 2014 Working with Terry was a pleasure! What a great way to kick off our summer season. The music was fun and festive. Terry rocks the steel drum! Elizabeth Harrigle, Tuckerton Lumber Company, 200 North Long Beach Blvd., Surf City, NJ 08008 609.494.2111 www.tlcnj.com

November 13, 2013 Thank you so much for coming to Hofstra University for the Diversity Awareness Month Reception on November 13, 2013. The students, staff and faculty loved the Drum Circle! I never participated in a Drum Circle before but I loved it! I highly recommend Terry Muldoon’s Drum Circle.  She is reliable, professional, enthusiastic about music and is a great group facilitator. We had about 40 students and staff participate in the Drum Circle and there were enough musical instruments for everyone! The best part was seeing the smiles on all of the student’s faces, music truly is the universal language.

October 5, 2013 Steel Margarita completed our summer at the beach perfectly! So many of my guests commented on how she made this party better than ever! We were dancing, doing the limbo and singing along! We had children as young as 3 dancing and my parents as well! I highly recommend you check her out! I already reserved Steel Margarita for my 2014 party! Thanks for making my end of summer party such a success! Sincerely, Margaret Welsh, Beach Haven, New Jersey

December 3, 2012 My husband and I used Steel Margarita for our wedding. What a hit! Our guests absolutely loved it as we did also. Their music gave a cool vibe and SOPHISTICATION to our cocktail hour. Steel Margarita gave us many song choices and variety which we loved. We would definitely recommend this Steel Drum Band for any party and will DEFINITELY be using them again!

Thank you, Theresa and Jonathan Casson 516 710-9324

June 20, 2013 We hosted a graduation party during the summer and had Terry Muldoon from Steel Margarita as our musical guest.. What an EXCELLENT choice we made!! Her music is so uplifting and inspiring and always seems to make everyone smile!!

We love the sound of the steel drum and so many people told us how much they enjoyed her performance too. Terry is an amazing, beautiful musician and we would highly recommend her to play at your next event!!! Sincerely, Liz and Jim Martiello, East Meadow, NY

October 13, 2013 Dear Terry, I want to thank you for the wonderful job you did for my daughter's wedding. Since we were the last wedding held at the 5th Street pavilion before it washed away in "Sandy", it is especially poignant. Having you play on the pavilion for the ceremony and later to welcome guests to the reception set just the right tone for a beach wedding. All of our guests loved it! I can't thank you enough for making a great day even better!

December 1, 2012 Each year we hold an benefit for our dog and cat charity "Wrapped With Love". At our annual fundraiser we hire entertainment to play at the party. This year we held our event in November and we had Steelmargarita proform and we could not have be happier!

The entire evening was filled with the beautiful tropical sounds of steel drum music. Everyone who attended our event had a wonderful time and enjoyed the sounds and performance of Steel Margarita. Steel Margarita was very professional, arrived on time and a joy to work with. The only problem we had, no one wanted her to stop playing or the party to end! We could not have asked for more.

Sincerely, Al & Marianne Straaik PS: Feel free to contact us: wrapped. withlove.li@ gmail. com
