Pan Occasions (Adrian) was extremely talented! He was very friendly and interested in making his performance the best. Everyone really enjoyed his Steel Drum Music. We strongly recommend him and will keep him in mind for any future events.

Private PartyReviewed on September 9, 2018From Central Islip, NY

Adrian came early to set up and made sure his music was at the right level for our guests. He was very friendly and kept the music going, even in the rain! It was such an authentic island sound. We would highly recommend!

Pan Occasions:

Thanks, Melissa, great to meet and play for you guys. Thanks for your hospitality.

Adrian was very professional. He was in contact and answered all questions during the process leading up to the event. He was setup and ready to play exactly at the time we agreed upon. The guest loved the music. Would highly recommend Adrian again!

CelebrationReviewed on November 5, 2017From New York City, NY

Adrian provided awesome entertainment on a last minute request and was extremely accommodating and professional. He contacted me the night before to discuss traveling/set-up arrangements, and made sure that marathon traffic wouldn’t stop him from being on time. He took the train (with his equipment) to be sure of it... and got there 30 minutes early! Adrian is polite and pleasant and a great addition to our small party. I would certainly recommend his services and hope to see him again!

Pan Occasions:

Thanks, Grace. It was great meeting all of you.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on April 23, 2016From Brooklyn, NY

Adrian was very receptive to emailing prior to the event, to ensure all details were worked out ahead of time. He asked if I had any particular song I wanted to hear that was not on his typical set list, and learned it specifically for me. He played the cocktail hour of my wedding, and while I was mostly out of the room, I got great feedback from my guests.

Pan Occasions:

I thank Lauren for the feedback but am not sure where I may have fallen short regarding my professional. I arrived at the venue an hour beforehand to set up, was dressed appropriately, started to play when guests started to enter the room 15 minutes before our scheduled time, took no breaks, and didn't stop before the caterers told me to. I played upbeat Caribbean music as I always do. Was my music too loud? Too low? Not sure where I might have fallen a point low in my professionalism. I did enjoy the event, anyhow, and Lauren and her husband appeared easygoing, friendly, and came over to dance and take pictures with me. For me it was a great gig.

We received many compliments from our guests on the steel drummer's performance at our wedding. One of our friends is even planning to take up the instrument!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on September 12, 2015From Bay Shore, NY

I cannot say enough great things about Adrian. Our wedding was on Fire Island (not an easy venue to get to), and he had no problems figuring out the travel on his own. When it started to pour rain at our ceremony, Adrian made it over to the venue along with everyone else with no issues. THEN when it started to storm and the power went out, causing the DJ music to turn off during the bridal party entrance, he kicked in with the drums and kept the party going!!! All while he was packing up to leave after cocktail hour!! The music was great, he was professional, pleasant, and easygoing. I have no complaints at all!!

Baby ShowerReviewed on August 22, 2015From Queens Village, NY

Mr. Adrian Clarke was professional in every way. He was accommodating and helpful. In addition to playing the steel pan, he played very appropriate music for the occasion. At no time was there a silent background. I n addition, when the younger members of our party requested some line dancing, he was on point and ready. Wow! I would not hesitate to rehire him. thank You Adrian

Wedding Cocktail HourReviewed on June 7, 2014From Hillsborough, NJ

Adrian from Pan Occasions was absolutely wonderful. Everyone was raving about how cool it was that we had a steel drum player and how much they enjoyed it. The music was great and I wish we had him there even longer. It was perfect and really made the ceremony and cocktail hour. Couldn't be happier. Thanks Adrian!! - Nicole/Matthew
