Kenn Made the Party

Kenn gave a wonderful performance at our Caribbean themed pool party on the weekend, which ran from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. and had 55 adults and 15 kids in attendance. Everyone was saying how much they enjoyed it, largely in part to the relaxed, laid back feel he provided through his talent on the pan drum. He really helped to make our gathering a success. He was great to work with, and very professional - we wouldn't hesitate to book him or to recommend him to others in the future. Thank you Kenn!

Incredible entertainer - highlight of our special event!

Kenn Lewis was prompt, professional and friendly from the beginning stages of our communcation, to the set-up on event day, and his interaction with our guests was amazing. He truly brought the tropics to our January event with his energy and warmth. We can't wait to work with Kenn again and would recommend him to anyone.

A birthday to remember

When organizing my mother's 60th birthday bash, I knew we had to do something special to give the event the Caribbean flavour this Jamaican expat would love. Kenn didnt just bring his steel drum, he brought the party!
From classic west indian tunes to his full library of songs to DJ from, Kenn got everyone dancing..
My mom was over the moon! What an amazing night, that would not have been oossible wihout Kenn's music.

Kenn and his band made our celebration truly beautiful.

Kenn was part of a trio we hired for our Celebration of Life memorial service as we honoured the memory of our late parents. Our parents loved music, especially the sound of the steel drum, so it was quite fitting to spend an evening listening to the music of our parents. We were impressed with Kenn's customer service skills and his ability to accommodate our song requests. He and his band committed to learn our parents' wedding song, which was an old Bollywood tune from the 1960's. They made our memorial celebration so beautiful and engaging. All of our guests loved the music and are still talking about how wonderful Kenn and his band were. We are happy to have found Kenn through this site and we definitely recommend him to anyone.

Feel good music

Kenn we thank you for providing our Department's Summer Party with great tunes! Your Caribbean/soca music played on the steel drum was perfect for our Island-themed event. Fun yet professional, we'd highly recommend Kenn for another such event!

Great Reggae Party!

I hired Kenn for a themed adult birthday party. We decided to have a reggae party due to our love for Jamacia and Kenn was the perfect entertainment.

Kenn was not only very professional and entertaining he was very accomodating moving the party indoors once it started to get cold on the patio. All of my guests have been raving about the music and they really enjoyed singing along. He even allowed a gust to try playing his drum.

Thanks again Kenn! It was great!

Absolutely amazing and entertaining!

Kenn was just absolutely amazing at our grand opening patio party. He was entertaining and all our guests loved it. It was definitely a different feel from what we usually have at our restaurant, but a really good change. Thank you so much Kenn! We will most see you again!

He Keeps You Dancing!

We recently hired Kenn for our summer staff party and BBQ and he was an absolute hit! The staff enjoyed his music, steel drums and summer songs while they mingled and enjoyed a great day. A number of people asked "where did you find him" and requested his information for their own parties! Just wanted to say thanks Kenn for putting a bounce into our day! Your music and bright smile brought our party to life!

I saw Kenn perform in 2009 at a polo game after party. He performed during the dinner festivities, and provided great ambiance to the scene. Much enjoyed!

Kenn Lewis

Kenn Lewis mainly performs as a One man music crew. Someone even joked and said "if he had two extra arms he wouldn't need no one else".

I have seen him throughout the years master quite a few instruments like the keyboards,guitar,steel drums,saxophone and I'm sure he has a few more up his sleeves.

I'm not gonna sit here and tell you how great Kenn is, I will let you find out yourself when you invite him to perform at your next function.You can visit his personal website (www.kennlewis.com) to get an in depth look at his musical career and the satisfied clients he has entertained over the years.

He is a natural musician.(which is a good thing he does not sound like everyone else). A unique sound of his own.With perfect pitch(this means he can listen to something and play it back instantly) I say he knows about a million and one songs.

He looks at the audience and delivers the music in an unrepenting manner. From ages 3 to a 100 he knows what to play and when to play it.

So check him out.Don't just take my word for it.You will see he is the man.

Testimonials

I would like to thank you for the wonderful entertainment on
Sunday, as you can tell most of my guest was from the Caribbean but I
also had some friends and neighbors who was from Poland, the Phillipines
and of course Canada and this was the first time they saw live steelpan
being played and you were a star they really enjoyed it, with the island
backdrop, the sweet pan music and the pineapple cocktails complete with
tiny umbrellas they felt as though they were in the islands sitting on
the beach.
