Music for Pre-Ceremony / Ceremony / Cocktail Hour / Dinner / & Reception

with Steel Drums - Guitar/Vocals - solo & duo / DJ with MC

Patrick was awesome!! Before I hired him to play at my wedding ceremony, he invited me to come hear him play at Bloomingdale's. I went to check him out and was immediately impressed. We had several conversations leading up to the day and he was nothing but friendly and extremely helpful. He even helped me pick my song selection and in the end we decided to add his son to the mix who plays the ukulele. On the big day, he showed up early and was AMAZING!!! The mix of the steel drums and ukulele added the perfect original musical touch to my wedding! I could not have been happier with Patrick and his son and would absolutely recommend him to anyone for any occasion! Abby E, 11/12/2010, Wedding Ceremony, San Diego, CA

Thank you so much for being there and making our day memorable. You and your son are incredibly talented and I have been passing your name along whenever the opportunity arises. You did such a great job learning "Hey Soul Sister" and think of you and that day everytime I hear it.

I hope that there will be another special occasion in the future where we can have you come play again. When we were originally planning the wedding, my dad asked me what the most important thing was that I wanted that day. My response, " a steel drum player." So happy that you made that possible.

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. Wer'e so glad we hired him & 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../ -- Ron T, San Diego, CA, 1/2/2010

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! -- Katherine M, San Diego, CA, 8/15/2009
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!

Hi Patrick;

Your music and you captured our hearts. Mellow, sweet and upbeat at the same time. Many of the folks appreciated learning more about the drums as you interspersed information between songs.

It was just a really lovely and entertaining evening for all of us hearing some familiar songs in a new way.

Thank you for coming up to the mountain.

Patrick did a great and wonderful job. The music was perfect!!!!! Thank you so much for making our wedding sound great!!! -- Brandie R, Coronado, CA, 3/29/2008
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! -- Deanna B, San Diego, CA, 5/25/2008
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. -- Kristy B, San Diego, CA, 6/1/2007

Patrick was friendly, professional and a pleasure to deal with. He was talented and accomodating the day of the event and I would strongly recommend him to anyone. He added a "touch of class" to our party. Thank you Patrick for a job well done. Gloria and Bob Tremolini -- Gloria T, Murrieta, CA, 6/28/2008
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. -- Steve D, Solana Beach, CA, 6/16/2007

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! -- Tina T, San Diego, CA, 11/15/2007
Patrick, it was a pleasure working with you at the Belott Wedding. Your music was fantastic and enjoyed by the Bride, Groom, and their guests .....truly perfect! I look forward to working together again soon. Joanna F / Unforgettable Events
Patrick -

Marc and I wanted to send a huge thank you your way for being a part of our wedding day at Windansea Beach! Your steel drum made the mood at the ceremony just perfect! We could not have asked for a more beautiful day - the sunshine, ocean waves and sounds of the steel drum were breathtaking!

We have received several comments from guests who loved your playing and my dad was especially impressed as I knew he would be - steel drums are his favorite!! He was even playing your CD in his rental car as we drove around last week and I'm sure he's rocking it back in VA right now! Thanks again for making our day even more special with your unique contribution and we will definitely recommend you to party people everywhere!

We wish you all the best and hope you have a wonderful summer! Cheers, Stacy & Marc 5/1/2010
