Professional, on-time, great performance. Made our daughter's 21st birthday party - attended by no one (social distanced) - very special.
Dexter was a pleasure to work with, very responsive and quick to send necessary paperwork. He and his bandmate arrived early for setup with no snags. The music created the perfect atmosphere for our outdoor cocktail party event - received so many compliments. Will definitely be hiring this band again in the future!
If you want that island feel, Pan Paradise is the way to go! Our event was outside on the bay front in Miami, so we knew we had to have this band at our event, and man, they did not disappoint. From start to finish, Dexter was fantastic to work with. Himself and his band met all of our expectations!

We really enjoyed having Dexter and his colleague at our rehearsal dinner on Jekyll Island, Georgia. They brought an island spirit to our beach party. His talent and range of songs were more than we expected. We would definitely hire Dexter again.
Dexter (Pan Paradise) is a perfect gentleman. We really enjoyed every minute of it ! He gave to our party a lovely touch of the caribbean ilands....he knew exactly what to do and when.....we strongly recommend him to anyone who wants to have a great steelband dinner party. We take this opportunity to thank Dexter for the lovely time we had. Evelyn and family
The band was great and everyone had a blast- we will definitely call Pan Paradise to do our next parties. Dexter was a great manager and made sure the band played on time and everything went smoothly!! -
My father's 70th surprise birthday was a total success. As I wanted, Dexter arrived prior to my father being there and had the party in full swing from beginning to end. I enjoyed him so much, my husband and I decided to pay for an extra hour. All the guests enjoyed Dexter's performance and he was very flexible as to what people wanted to hear. He is an artist and I will definitely use him again for future events. My father said he will never forget his 70th.
Dexter was an AMAZING pan player! If we had requests..he played them..brought all his own equipment..set up perfectly!! an amazing addition to our wedding reception. His sound was PERFECT! Anyone who has questions can personally contact me 303.995.7787 (jack) i am that satisfied!!! It is obvious Dexter has perfected the steel drum and has a complete music library everything from Buffett, to Motown....Thank you Dexter!!!
Having a destination wedding I was very concerned about all the things that could go wrong (Will they show up,do they sound good,and so on) That was the biggest waste of my time! If you hire Pan Paradise do not be concerned nor burn up your time thinking about what could happen. Just send Dexter your info. of what you would like and he will take care of everything. When they start playing you will be in shock just how great they are. Everyone who attended our wedding was equally impressed with the magical sound they make. You will not go wrong to hire the band for any event that you are planning! -
The band was fantastic and everyone loved them! The selection of music for our party was commented on over and over by our guests. Everyone was asking "where did you find these guys??!" They were very professional and we will want them for our next big party. Thanks Guys for making this a special birthday for my husband and our friends. May God continue to Bless You!
This was a big event for us, we had over 700 guest, and naturally we were nervous about it all coming together. Dexter and the rest of the members of Pan Paradise were awesome! They were all very professional and their music was just fantastic - it was enjoyed by everyone. We will definetly use Pan Paradise again for future events and will highly recommend them to others. Thank you all so much for helping to make our event such a success!! -
My wife and I booked Dexter for our beach wedding and we couldn't say enough how pleased we were. Dexter's friendly personality, professionalism and attitude were only outdone by his musical ability. We honeymooned in Aruba and were able to witness several other drummers while there. Dexters sound made a mockery of the other drummers we heard! We couldn't have been happier with the service and quality Dexter offered to us
Pan Paradise performed at our party beautifully. They set the tone early and eased everyone into the party mode. Playing favorites and watching the dynamics of the group, even playing some of the party theme songs which brought everyone smiles!! As dinner was served up they tempered down a bit and allowed for a relaxed meal, while still maintaining the mood. Afterwards, they kicked it back up and away we went back into the full party mode. This Father and Son group are more like a couple of brothers and demonstrated their musical discipline playing solidly all night maintaining tempo and time while managing the musical dynamic to accent the crowds desires!
Dexter was nothing less than SUPERB. He has a great personality that truly comes through in his music. He was the life of the party. I'd recommend him to anyone!
Although my husband and I were not at our cocktail hour to hear Pan Paradise we heard fom out guest that he was wonderful. We requested his services late (only a week or two before our wedding)and they really came through for us. Thank you Dexter! -
Pan Paradise made our wedding complete. Beautiful people fantastic; fun music; it was more than anyhting we had ever hoped for!! The band was professional, fun and wonderful to meet!!! Without hesitation we would use them again and recomend Pan Paradise to all of our friends! Five stars!! -
We had our wedding in Florida on Sept. 22, 2007. Dexter was early and waiting on us and our guest to arrive at the reception site. He was amazing. We loved him, our guest loved him, it was by far the best part of our reception. I highly recommend Pan Paradise to anyone looking for a steel drummer. We would absolutely book him again
Dexter is incredible! My "Margaritaville" party wouldn't have been anything without his music. Everyone said he MADE the party. He totally set the scene and kept everyone entertained throughout the night. So many of our friends asked where I found him. He made me look good :). He was professional, easy to work with and so talented. What more could i ask for. Thanks again Dexter, and we will definitly be looking for another reason to book you.
What a wonderful addition to our party Pan Paradise was! The guests just loved hearing and dancing to the sound of a steel drum, especially one that was played so well. These guys are truly some of the best in the business. There's no reason to hesitate on booking them because everything was perfect! Thanks for making our event a huge success! Hope Cross
We were having a big party at our home - the band came early and set up. During their playing time, they talked to the guests, encouraged dancing, limbo and crowd participation - it was a great time for us & guests, much thanks to the band for their role in the party. The band's manager was responsive to my requests and always got back to me. I would highly recommend them and will use them again next year! -
Dexter is truely a professional entertainer who fit perfect into our holiday tiki party. His selection of music was outstanding. Our guests were having such a great time, that we requested Dexter to stay and additional hour. Dexter was very accomidating with the booking of his services and followed up with phone calls to confirm everything. Dexter will be a fixture at all of parties in the future. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is thinking about this type of entertainment.
Dexter's great steel drums performance was amazing!! Even though the bride and some members of the bridal party were a bit late to the wedding site, Dexter, very professionaly and timely was all set up and had the Caribbean environment going!! Just as he said he would!! It was a super surprised for everyone. Our dream of getting married at the Beach, with Dexter's drums in the stage, made it an unforgettable ceremony. Everyone loved his playing. He is very professional and accomodating. His suggestions were key to our wedding program. He suggested the order of events as he is VERY experienced. Our Beach Wedding Dream was made reality! Thank you Dexter!!
Excellent - perfect choice for our Carribean Reception!
Dexter did a fantastic job at the Christening of our boat. The music was perfect and he was very professional. We would recommend him without hesitation.
