Patrick had great communication prior to our event and showed up early. We very much enjoyed the music and it gave our party a true island vibe. We will definitely have Patrick come entertain us again!
Patrick performed at a memorial party for my late husband. He was certainly a bright spot in the night. I would highly recommend. He has a very broad music list, and can perform most anything!
Patrick was a great addition to our luau themed lunch. I would hire again.
Such a great experience! Was perfect for our occasion!
Patrick was amazing. I would hire him again in a heartbeat
Pat was terrific. Super communicative. Showed up early to set up. Played the entire gig with one short break (kept telling him to take as many as he wanted/needed). His playing is awesome; exactly what we wanted. At one point we asked him to kick it up a notch so we could dance more and he did exactly that. Easy going, responsive, great musician, super friendly, reliable. Would recommend him to anyone and hope to have a good excuse to book him again soon!
Took a lot of breaks, didn’t hear him play the steel drums that long. Otherwise, if he played consistently with one or two breaks, it would’ve been great.
Response from We Kinda Music:
Very strange review.....the event was 5 hours.....I took 3 breaks and one was because they told me to go eat....and they did the birthday cake.
And I actually started early when guests arrived and played a few extra songs over time that some guests wanted to hear.
And they tipped me......so had a great time playing and everyone was great.
Patrick was easy to work with from the start. He understood our budget, didn't offer extras that we didn't need and really honed in on the personality of the group. His price was great and he showed up on time with all items he said he would bring- no surprises. At the party, he was entertaining but did not take over the event- exactly what was requested.
Patrick was a pleasure to work with and our crowd had a fabulous time. Will hire Patrick again in the future and recommend him highly!
Patrik was perfect. We had guests from age 30 to 60 for my wife’s early retirement party.....EVERYONE enjoyed...music was not overwhelming and perfect. Almost every song he sang was recognizable with the steel drum twist. I will invite him back
Great job Patrik
Patrick was very professional and accommodating. We had a party with 70 people and everybody loved the music.
Pat did an awesome job with correspondence and contacting me ahead of time. He was quick to make sure all details were in place and very organized. He showed up early to set up, which we appreciated so it wasn't during the party. His music was perfect for our party and created a great mood and festive feel. I'll be sure to recommend him to friends and will use him again in the future!
Patrick was on time-- gave us quality entertainment. His backline accompanying his melody was just right.
His dress could have been improved. Looked way more casual than his promotional photo.
We will definitely ask him back.
Patrick was on time, very professional and made beautiful music. His talent welcomed my guests to the event and Patrick filled in the gaps for our Murder Mystery dinner.
He was easy to work with and a nice guy. The steel drum with his backing tapes are superb. He added a lot to the event and I will be hiring him again.
Patrick Burke brought on a friend, Jim Gibson, to accompany him on the steel drum with vocals and guitar. They were magic! Our party was an evening affair, and my plan was for a steel drum to greet folks as they arrived. With the addition of vocals, it couldn't have been more perfect! They arrived an hour before the party to set up and were playing as the first guest arrived - even having to deal with our GFI not working when they got there. Unruffled, they went on to serenade the crowd, and everyone kept coming up and asking me where I had seen them. Where do they play? How did I hear of them? Where did I find them? After I told them through Gig Salad, all commented on how great their music was and how they made the party. I had even asked if they could learn two songs that I love... and they preformed them as if they had been on their playlist for years. That made MY night! We had all ages present - from 18 to 85 - and I think everyone heard songs they loved, too. I would highly recommend Patrick and Jim for a fun party. They are terrific for dancing, listening, or just to bring a certain ambience to your affair. And, their personalities are friendly, mellow and accommodating. Everyone was so impressed and they made my dream party a successful reality. Thanks, We Kinda Music!
After a few of my vendors messing up the details of my wedding, I was worried about all of my vendors except this one. From the start Patrick contacted me first and continued to follow up until the minute the wedding started. He learned a song we had requested for our exit and arrived early. It added the perfect brachytherapy vibe to our beach wedding.
Price Range: $300 - $4000.
