Steel Pan Events Testimonials - for Soloist, Steel Band and Caribbean Packages

I've been very happy to receive recommendations and letters of thanks from many of my customers. Musicians, as with all service providers, depend greatly on the word-of-mouth factor and kind comments such as the selection below.

 Caribbean Night 

"Absolutely amazing"

Dave Benson Phillips

ex Splash FM Radio

Dear Jim,

"Thank you for providing us with the most magical music on our wedding day. The steel pans we everything we'd hoped for and your piano set during dinner was perfect. So many of our guests commented on 'The Little Mermaid', which was just brilliant! We will definitely be finding more excuses to hire you!"

Rebecca and David

Dear Jim,

Thanks for a great time, all the guest just thought you were brilliant. To have such lovely music throughout the day was just great. You can use me as a reference anytime.

Kind regards

Brenda & Keith

Dear Jim,

"Thank you so much for playing at our wedding reception. It made the drinks reception really special and all our guests really enjoyed it".

Becky and Andy Stillwell.

Dance Floor

Hi Jim,

"We just wanted to say a massive thank you for all of your efforts on Sunday. The music was a great enhancement. We had so many compliments from customers. A very big thank you!"

Michelle and Alan, Ocean World Travel Cruise Fair Southampton.


 Bernardin's playing seems extraordinary to me. He plays with two sticks in each hand, marimba-style, and coaxes harmony and counterpoint out of the pans as well as melody - numbers from all over the world and, even at one point a snatch of Bach.'

Many thanks

Clare and Rich, Surrey

Dear Jim,

"I just wanted to let you know how much we all enjoyed your pans and Caribbean music at our wedding.

The pans were just right for a sunny summer's evening, particularly in the setting of the barn, and really put the icing on the cake not only for Brian and I but many of the guests judging by the complimentary letters."

Thank you.

Yours Sincerely,

Judith Royce


Dear Jim,

"Thank you so much for your wonderful playing at our daughter Nicky and new son-in-law Lea's wedding reception on the 8th July. We will have no hesitation in recommending you to family and friends, and you greatly impressed everyone at the reception.
