This was our second time using Steely Pan and he was just as great this time around! He really made our event nice and the families that attended thought he was a great addition to the morning! Will definitely use him again!

Steely Pan (Tim) was a dream to work with! The whole process was super simple! I had him play music for my ceremony and cocktail hour and he really created the vibe I was looking for and sounded awesome! A lot of people thought it was a recording! If you love steel drums and want to add unexpected flare to an event, look no further!!!

WeddingReviewed on September 5, 2017From Long Grove, IL

We booked Steely Pan for our Cocktail Hour at our Wedding and he was amazing!!! Everyone that we talked to about our wedding loved Tim, they ALL said that the steel drum music was a perfect addition to our wedding. Everyone was very impressed by his performance, he definitely was the hit of our cocktail hour. Booking Steely Pan was one of the best decisions we could have made for our wedding, the music was awesome and very Caribbean! We would recommend Steely Pan to anyone. Thank you for making our wedding memorable Steely Pan!

Tim was fabulous and totally made our party more fun than we ever expected. Tim played for a party we had for our daughter and son-in-law as an after party form their destination wedding. Most all of our guests commented on how great the music was. Not too loud and not too soft just the perfect volume to be able to talk but still have a festive upbeat party. The club where we held our party will be hiring Steely-Pan for their own functions in the future because they thought he was wonderful. If we could give Steely-Pan more that 5 stars we certainly would. This drummer will not disappoint! Fabulous all the way!!

Steely Pan was a great addition to our pool party. All my guests loved the live background music, and even some of my neighbors commented on the music they could hear. He was very polite, friendly and professional. The music was the perfect volume for the event. We had ~40 people, splashing in the pool, and chatter - and no one complained that he was too loud or too soft.

I was very pleased with Steely Pan. He came dressed in all white to stay in harmony with the theme of the party. I will definitely recommend him to friends and family.

We had 85 guests at our party and every one who commented said that Tim was excellent. You could have conversations while enjoying beautiful steel drums. Many took his card for future bookings. Glad we found him!

He did a great job and afterwards several people wanted to look at the instrument and he was very gracious in helping them to understand how to play it. Very pleased with him and his performance.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on November 21, 2009From Rock Falls, IL

We were married in the Caribbean and had a tropical themed reception for friends and family when we returned. Tim played during cocktail hour and during the dinner. He was amazing!!! He did a great job and was very professional. Everyone was commenting on how cool it was to have a steel drummer playing. Well done Tim, and thank you!!! Shannon and Josh

Cocktail PartyReviewed on September 17, 2009From Champaign, IL

Tim did a fantastic job. His choice of music and the volume was right on. I will hire Tim again and I will be sending referals his way in the future. My clients thought he was great and they all thought they were on vacation that night. I would like to bring Tim back to Champaign to do a clinic for kids on how to play the steel drums this coming summer.

Graduation PartyReviewed on August 6, 2009From Lake Zurich, IL

Steely Pan was perfect for creating the atmosphere we were looking for: cruise ship, a bon voyage feeling as we ship our son off to college. It was effortless on our part. His volume permitted the conversations we wanted our guests to have.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on July 18, 2009From Michigan City, IN

Because it was a beach wedding, he really helped set the tone for the wedding. Everyone commented on how it felt like it was a destination wedding rather than right here in Northwest Indiana. And because of the waves and slight wind, one of our fears was that you wouldn't be able to hear the music but that was not a problem at all.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on July 12, 2009From Joliet, IL

Tim is a great performer and very professional. We arrived at the reception for our daughter and he was the setting up. He played during our cocktail hour as guest arrived. It added a special effect to our summer wedding for our daughter, the guest could nt beleive their ear's when they saw a live steel drum player ! Thank you Tim ! You will always be on our list of names to recommend to clients and friends.

WeddingReviewed on April 1, 2009From Columbia, IL

He played for our wedding reception. We wanted tropical background music, and Steeley Pan's music was perfect for our event. People could visit, but the music was there, beautiful, tropical...... I believe he passed out several cards to people who enjoyed his music and were interested in him for their event. Thanks much
