Steel Drum Music for Any Size Event

Here's what some of our customers say.....

Dear Jay,

On behalf of the Children’s Benefit League, please accept my sincere gratitude
for the terrific music entertainment that PANJIVE provided us at our Annual
Fashion Show, Live & Silent Auctions and Luncheon event on March 5th, 2011. You were definitely “A HIT” with the guests, and your audience. Additionally, your personalities were evident through your smiles and enjoyment in what you do. We in Children’s Benefit League hope that we have the opportunity to work with you again in the future, and our best wishes are with you as individuals and as a musical ensemble.

Most Sincerely,
Susan E. Lance

I have been so remiss not sending you a thank you note for my 60th. birthday party. I do have pictures to send to you which I will do when I get home. I want to thank you for the wonderful evening of music you provided for my guests and me. YOU ARE TERRIFIC. TRUST ME WHEN I SAY YOU WILL BE MY ENTERTAINMENT OF CHOICE FOR ALL FUTURE PARTIES. Everyone commented on the entertainment and the fact that while the music was enjoyable it was not intrusive.

THANK YOU so much for making the party such a HUGE HIT! You guys were so AWESOME and grooved the night away!!! It was so nice meeting you guys as well – just love all of you!!!!!!! I will be recommending you to everyone I talk too and I know that you probably got some good business from our friends who throw parties etc….

Please, tell all the guys – thank you from us!!!!!!

Jay, Many thanks for your wonderful music at Dave & Hanks retirement party this past weekend! I received many, many compliments about your music and how PERFECT it was for this event. You were absolutely fantastic! The neighbors near the venue even searched us out the next day to tell us how much they enjoyed sitting on their patios enjoying the steel drums! I will pass your name and contact information on to both friends and business associates. Panjive is the best!

Thanks again! If you are ever in need of a reference, please let me know!

Dear Panjive & Eva,

From our very first contact with you through our wedding day, you were responsive, professional and friendly. Planning a wedding is an extremely stressful process, but from the day we spoke, never once did we worry about our wedding reception music. You exceeded our expectations and we are truly appreciative. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping to give us a dream reception. Dancing away the night to steel drums was everything we have ever wished for, a pure reflection of our style. We will enthusiastically recommend you to anyone looking to make their dream wedding a reality. Thank you!

Dear Jay & Panjive crew-

Our Christmas party was a HUGE success due to you and your wonderful music. Our guests were so surprised to hear steel drum Christmas music and many of them said it made it the best Christmas party ever. It was nice to know that your wonderful music that we have enjoyed on multiple other occasions can translate so well into the holidays. I was thrilled that I could have an elegant Christmas party and still enjoy the Caribbean sounds that make any occasion light-hearted. fun and festive. We can't wait to have you back for another event!

Thank vou again!

Diana & Kent Allen

Hello from the Bahamas!  You really did make our day and we actually keep thinking about how much we wish we had just stuck with you for the reception also!  It was such a great time and everyone has been raving about you... So, good vibes all around! =)  Thank you again for making our special day SO memorable.  We have yet to see a steel drum guy out here (so far, we got welcomed at the airport by a guy playing the keyboard which made steel drum sounds... but that wasn't even close to the real thing!), but we still have another week and we're bound to hear some more. =)  Hope you have a great day/weekend and we will definitely be thinking of you the next time we have a big event! =)  Take care!!!

Dearest Jay, Eva and the rest of Panjive crew,

I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for a wonderful performance.  Honestly, I didn't know what to expect when hiring a band off the internet but I know that I made the right choice.  The live music was absolutely perfect and we enjoyed every note!  It set the mood for our ceremony and reception beautifully and everyone was so impressed with you all.  Paul and I cannot thank you enough for being a part of our special day and if you ever have a nervous bride that needs a referral -- please feel free to give them my email address and I will be honored to sing your praises.  Again, thank you so much for being on time, professional and so flexible with our wedding.  We absolutely loved you guys and our guests did too!

Best wishes for the New Year,

"Thank you very much for helping us celebrate our Fortieth Wedding Anniversary. You and your group (and your playlist) provided exactly the feeling we wanted on this special occasion. All of our guests said the party was nice, but the music was terrific. Accept our sincere thanks for adding so much to our It's Calypso Time event."

Charlotte and Don Kovach


"Again, I just wanted to thank you for such a great job. Everyone enjoyed the music and it was a great compliment to our theme. The event wouldn't have been a success without you. So again, thanks so much! On a personal note, I will definately refer everyone I know to you, if they are looking for a great steel drum band. You are THE BEST"

Dear Eva,

On behalf of Dole, we wanted to thank Panjive for the wonderful music they provided during Dole’s 6/21 event. The Steel Drums set the tone for the tropical cocktail party and helped everyone relax into the evening. The band members were very courteous and professional, and very easy to work with. Thank you again for your services and hopefully we will have a chance to work with you again soon!
