Private PartyReviewed on March 18, 2018From La Quinta, CA

Patrick & Bob we’re perfect for our outdoor party at our home in La Quinta. From the beginning Patrick was easy to communicate with and responsive to all my questions. I highly recommend them.

Grand OpeningReviewed on April 21, 2018From San Diego, CA

We had Patrick perform at one of our New Home Grand Opening. He was on time, accommodating, professional and a phenomenal steel drum player. People would comment that when they would first walk in the home, they thought it was a recording of steel drum playing, and they were blown away that it was live! I would highly recommend him!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on July 14, 2018From Anaheim, CA

We fully enjoyed the entertainment Patrick provided at my dad's surprise party. He played the style of music we requested, and was so friendly. The guests all commented about the music and how it was the perfect level to be heard yet allow for conversation. Many people from the party asked for his information. We definitely would recommend him to others looking for a steel drum player. Thank you Patrick!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 5, 2014From San Diego, CA

Patrick played at my wedding and I wouldn't change a thing! Not only was he professional and prompt, he was beyond accomodating in offering options and also coming up with new songs to play. He sent me a lot of options, told me what was most requested, most popular and he even went out of his way to learn new songs that he hadnt done before. All of our guests remarked on how wonderful the music was and how lovely an atmosphere he created. He arrived an hour early and even watched over the ceremony site and setup before the guests started to arrive and while I was getting changed. He gave us a copy of the music on CD and cute keychain favors. Thank you Patrick!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on October 3, 2010From San Diego, CA

Patrick was amazing! He is such a talented musician and everyone at our wedding loved his steel drum music. I requested he learn a song for the wedding. He honored my request and I walked down the aisle to his perfect version of the song. I would definitely recommend him! He brings a lot of fun to the party.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on January 2, 2010From San Diego, CA

We hired Pat to provide Steel Drum music for our wedding ceremony & following cocktail hour. He was on time, reasonably priced and created the laid back island vibe we were looking for. Some wedding guests were skeptical at first, but Pat's version of Canon in D & the Bridal March were just as beautiful and solemn as any string ensemble and twice as rich & robust as any PA system playback of a recorded track. Everyone loved it! Pat was cool & fun and his music was awesome. Were so glad we hired him & highly recommend him to anyone looking to add live music to their special event. We can't wait to plan another event so we can hire him again.

Graduation PartyReviewed on June 9, 2013From San Diego, CA

Patrick added so much to our party. He was very flexible. Everyone commented on how great the music was. This was a last minute addition to my son's graduation party and the next time, it will be the first thing I book.

Patrick Burke was amazing. He is extremely talented, and had great ideas when I asked for recommendations of songs to play at my wedding. He always got back to me via email or by phone in a timely manner, and did an absolutely wonderful job at my wedding!

Patrick and the band played at a charity golf tournament that we were particiapting in. They were on time and dressed appropriately for the occasion. The music was great! They sounded very good and we got several compliments on the band. Patrick was very helpful, accommodating and was easy to deal with. I would definitely book them again and recommend them to others looking for a great island/steel drum band!

EventReviewed on April 3, 2013From Carlsbad, CA

I definitely would recommend Patrick for your event. His music was geared perfectly for our Island Theme. He is very professional and stayed in touch with me confirming everything in advance of our event. His fees are more than fair and I would use him again in the future. You will not be disappointed!

We had 75 adults and 20 children at a backyard Aloha attire wedding reception. The music was perfect, and most of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed it.

Anniversary PartyReviewed on September 5, 2009From Temecula, CA

We were extremely satisfied with Patrick Burke and would definately use him again in the future. He arrived early and play longer than our contracted agreement. Everyone loved the music and many wanted his information for future events. Thank you Patrick! You made our 25th Wedding Anniversary even more enjoyable! Dave & Crystal Temecula

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on July 22, 2010From Solana Beach, CA

Patrick is great - we listened to him performing solo at a local site and immediately confirmed him to play at our birthday party at our home. Patrick suggested that we include Jim Gibson (guitar and vocals) to perform with him - a fantastic recommendation that enriched our musical entertainment greatly. And, after the party was officially over, Patrick and Jim joined with the remaining guests and provided song and piano music for our enjoyment. I would engage Patrick and Jim again in a heart beat!

WeddingReviewed on May 25, 2008From San Diego, CA

Patrick was so easy to work with before our wedding ceremony. He made it clear that he enjoys performing at weddings. He did a great job at the wedding - we got many comments from our guests about Patrick - they all loved his music! I would hire him again for another event and recommend him to others. Thanks for doing such a wonderful job Patrick!

Patrick was a joy to work with. He made our hectic planning for a large event so easy! I definitely would not only recommend Patrick to others, I would use him again. He's talented, kind and very professional. We enjoyed him greatly at our event.

Anniversary PartyReviewed on November 15, 2007From San Diego, CA

Patrick was wonderful! He was so professional and accomodating. Our event took place at a San Diego County Court House therefore his music required a certain level of tact and respect regarding the noise level... and Patrick was "right on!" He was a hit, he sounded fabulous and I received numerous positive comments from those who attended about his music/talent(and they asked for his business card to use him for their future events)! THANKS PAT...we will use you again in the near future!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on June 14, 2008From Chula Vista, CA

I hired Patrick for a birthday party and never once had any negative issues with him. He arrived early, introduced himself to me and my father, and set up. He played well, and over the course of the night and the following days I received many compliments on his music and the wonderful atmosphere it provided. It was perfect for our event, and would definitely hire him again.

Patrick and Jim were excellent. They were very professional at all times and very helpful leading up to our event. I would work with them again on the kind of venue.

Baby ShowerReviewed on October 20, 2007From San Diego, CA

There was a 80% feedback from all of the guest commenting on how much they enjoyed Patrick and his music. He was very professional, prompt and talented. We weren't sure what kind of music to have for a couples shower but when he first started playing, we knew we made the right choice. We will definitely be booking him in the near future.

Hotel EventReviewed on June 1, 2007From San Diego, CA

Patrick has been playing for our 2007 Summer Friday night parties at the Rancho Bernardo Inn and we have heard nothing but great comments from our resort guests and employees. Everybody loves his music. The music creates the perfect tropical feel we wanted to have for our Aloha Nights parties. I would 100% recommend Patrick to all of my friends. He is very flexible and easy to work with. The Rancho Bernardo Inn definitely wants to use him again in the future.

Grand OpeningReviewed on June 16, 2007From Solana Beach, CA

Patrick was great. He was on time and fully self contained, meaning he didn't need us for anything more than "where do I set up?" I highly recommend Patrick if you want that cool island sound for your event. He was also faced with a challenging community member issues which he handled with style and grace, which was much appreciated. Great job.
