Lightning Jack was a beautiful addition to our wedding ceremony. He set the mood and played beautiful music while guests were getting seated. Then played the wedding march for my dad and i to walk down the isle and it was absolutely beautiful! I would definitely use him again and suggest him for everyone to use when looking for a steel drummer.
Jack was fabulous and our guests loved him!
Jack did an outstanding job of Caribbean type music, it was enjoyed & complemented by all at our party.
Music was on point and everything went great!
We were satisfied with his performance..
Lightening Jack did a fabulous job at making sure that when he couldn’t be at the party his friend could be there to fill in. They were both really great musicians and were fantastic and setting up smoothly and taking down easily. Everyone loved them! Thank you so much for a super grad party!
Jack was great, easy to work with. He arrived on time, set up his equipment seamlessly & played for 2hrs. He was a wonderful addition to my mother’s birthday party. His music on the steel drum created a fun relaxing vibe, which made the whole event come together. I would definitely recommend & hire him again!
So glad we found Lightening Jack for my daughter's pool party!!! He was amazing!! Music was perfect and he was very accommodating!! We will definitely hire him again!!!
Thank you Lightening Jack for being part of making it a memorable day for my daughter!!!
Lightning Jack was fantastic!! Professional and reliable. He learned a song requested and didn't disappoint. Would recommend this band to anybody with any occasion. Thank you!
Lightning Jack was a really great addition to our annual company spring party.
Jack took our requests and played them perfectly along with playing our first dance song (original version - not steal drums) and then gave us the best reception music! He was professional and patient...even waiting a week for payment - our mistake.
Jack was great! He exceeded our expectations and will definitely hire him again!
Jack was great. He was punctual and set up quick. He played the drums beautifully and you could actually tell what songs he was playing. A true artist. All the other beach goers seemed to enjoy it as well. I would definitely use him again.
Lightning Jack was hired to play at my mothers birthday party. He did such a great job. I would highly recommend him as he came through as promised and was my mothers favorite part of the party.
I hired Jack for our corporate dinner of 125 clients. He was great! Easy to work with. Very good entertainer. Huge song list.
Jack was TOPS! He arrived well in time to set up his equipment and was ready to start spot on time. He was very flexible &accepted some requests and played them flawlessly! He has a great friendly, professional, approachable attitude and our staff and residents are still talking about the great atmosphere he helped to create. We sill certainly book him next time we need that type of music! Thank you Lightning Jack :)
Having jack play for a few hours at my moms 70th bday really elevated it to a whole other level. It would not have been the same without him. So glad we chose jack! Highly recommended. Our family is a little party nuts and he knew just what to play!
We will book him again...great guy. He fits into any setting, on time, prepared and accomadating.
This is the guy you want for large or small functions.
with Lightning Jack McGivern! We hired Jack to play @ our mobile park's July 4th celebration! What a GREAT idea! The afternoon couldn't have gone any better! Jack played the entire time he was there! We had to interrupt him a few times, so we could make some announcements and he jumped right back in when we were done! His musical ability is truly amazing, his personality is professional but not stuffy (he's a sweetheart, really). And I ask my self WHY we never thought of Steel Drum entertainment before! Everyone had positive comments regarding Jack's performance! We will definitely invite Lightning Jack to entertain us again! You can't go wrong with Lightning Jack McGivern! THANKS, Jack!
Jack was amazing...so very talented and worked with us last minute to perform at one of our beach weddings. The whole process was simple, and he did such a great job. The couple was more than pleased and couldn't stop talking about how Jack had made their wedding so perfect.
Thank you, Jack! Highly recommended.
I can't begin to describe how wonderful Jack and his band are! Not only did they show up early for set up, they allowed the kids to sing a few songs karaoke which was the highlight of their night. They were very nice and played a wide variety of music which was really great. The wedding guests really enjoyed listening to them play and gave many comments that the music was not overly loud (as often wedding music can be). Jack was great to work with during the booking process and provided prompt responses to my questions. They were a great band that played great music. Thank you Lightning Jack and band!
Jack was fantastic! We really enjoyed having play for our party and would recommend him highly.
Lightning Jack was great for our party. The music was great, and the guests loved it. We loved the presentation with the bamboo stand. I would definitely recommend him!
My Members loved it, the singing, the guitar, the steel drums...it was all great, all night! We will have him back!
Lightning Jack is the perfect band for your beach party. With plenty of good tunes and his beach style, Jack will Trop-rock the party.
Lightning Jack's steel drums, bamboo mic stands and Caribbean look, makes watching and hearing a pleasure
Jack is great at playing to the crowd. Has an instinctive feel for what they want to hear and adjusts accordingly. Is versatile in light background music or an all out party. Professional in attire, equipment and showman ship and always set up early and ready to go.
