Retirement PartyReviewed on April 27, 2023From Palm City, FL

He was amazing and kind and so willing to accommodate in any way possible when we were dealing with bad weather. Loved the music! Would have him back in a second:-)

If you are looking for a little Steel Drum vibe as part of your gathering, Steel Pan Jam can be just right for you. This was exactly the sort of low-key but pleasing atmosphere we were trying to create.

Easter CelebrationReviewed on April 9, 2023From Orlando, FL

Ronald was very professional and respectful. The music he played was what I requested, I just wish the steel pan was a little louder and tempo a little faster.

I had many good comments about Ron's playing and how enjoyable it was. His set up procedure took longer than I knew it would which caused an overlap with our other entertainers. We didn't know about that in advance. He responded quickly when we requested more peppy Caribbean music and adjusted the volume. Extremely courteous. Very pleasant fellow. His performance enlivened our atmosphere quote nicely. Thank you again Ron!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on January 23, 2022From Saint Petersburg, FL

Ron is a very nice person and very easy to work with. He arrived well before the scheduled time, allowing plenty of time for set up. The downside was his seemed dependence on the recorded tracks. As one guest commented “he gave us a hint of steel drums”.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on November 29, 2021From Saint Petersburg, FL

Honestly, I didn't even know what to expect when we hired a musician. However, I can say that he was on time, he did his job with a smile, and he was super friendly. We gave him some of the flowers from our ceremony cause they were real and we figured he would get some enjoyment out of them since we couldn't take them with us. We were heading out on a cruise the next day. He was even nice enough to send us a thank you card!! Really tho, we are the ones who should say thank you Ronald for being an amazing talented person!!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on February 11, 2020From Sarasota, FL

Steel Pan Jam was very professional and personable at the same time. My husband was very pleased with his election of music, as he is from Trinidad himself. We enjoyed a large variety of music from Calypso and Soca to Rapso and Reggae, R&B as well. Steel Pan Jam was perfect for my husband’s birthday party and I’ll certainly hire him again. A+++

Steel Pan Jam:

Thanks for your hospitality and generosity. It was a pleasure to play for Trinidadians in Sarasota.

Awards Night PartyReviewed on February 5, 2018From Sarasota, FL

Ron was AWESOME! Everyone loved the music. We have done themed parties before and I have never heard so many positive comments as I have from the music. It made the atmosphere of the party. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Steel Pan Jam to anyone who is looking to have a great event. I will definitely hire him again for my personal parties. He is the real deal. Total professional with a great sound system that provides quality music. Everybody wants to know where I found him. THANK YOU Steel Pan Jam for making my event unforgettable!

Steel Pan Jam:

Thanks for your kind words.

WeddingReviewed on November 5, 2017From Clearwater Beach, FL

Ron was GREAT!! He brought his own equipment and let us use it for our beach ceremony. Music was great and loud enough for everyone to hear. We were able to use his microphone with no issues. He is definitely worth more than he charges and was very accommodating!! I hope we can use him again some day. Great wedding choice!
