Harry Best And Shabang Steel Drum BandI just want to thank you again, SO MUCH for providing such excellent music for our Paregentan Ball last Saturday. Shabang added an infinite amount to the Cruise Ship ambience and overall enjoyment of all of our guests. We received many compliments from those at the event, and we look forward to, hopefully, Shabang playing at another event for us in the not too distant future!!! Thank you again Harry!

On a personal note, as you know, my husband and I have a baby arriving any day now- so I feel very fortunate to have been able to make witness the incredible event we created, together. The memories of this fun and successful day will remain with me over the next few months of diaper-changing, nursing, and rest-deprivation that I'm anticipating :) ... and I'll really look forward to working with you in the coming year...

You were wonderful last night!!! The gift of your music was very much appreciated by all last night! I’ve gotten many phone calls today acknowledging what a fun night it was and what a fabulous band you were! I wanted to take a moment to let you know again what a blessing all of you were to the community last night and me.

On behalf of Point Richmond Music, I'd like to thank you for your performance Friday evening. It was a wonderful event, and your music was perfect for the evening. Steel drums at an outdoor concert on a warm summer evening lent just the right free and festive feeling we were looking for.
Please thank the whole band for a great performance.
Sydney Metrick - Point Richmond Music (Jun 5, 2006)

All of us at Alameda Alliance for Health enjoyed your music and sincerely appreciate your making our event today so festive. You guys are fabulous, organized, and professional. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and associates. I'm enjoying your CD right now and staying in the island mood... :) Best regards and many thanks!

Our heartfelt THANKS to each and every one of you...Together we teamed up to put on an event that we can feel a great sense of pride in. Our wonderful theme "Party Gras" created the perfect backdrop to creating an atmosphere of fun and merriment...It has been our pleasure working with you.
