Without a doubt the best part of the whole conference...music and especially drumming brings folks together in one mind and spirit...excellent way to send us back as a cohesive unit, ready to take on the challenge!
Man, that was FUN!
Great way to bring everyone together and end on an upbeat note!
The drumming was awesome!! I really enjoyed partaking in that, both before and after the speaker.

Our event yesterday was AWESOME! We had the best time and definitely worth every penny. Chris and his team were amazing and they really got the residents going. The Burlington Post was at the event and took a ton of pictures.
Thank you again.

It was a fantastic day yesterday and the students said it was the best assembly they ever attended. The students had no idea it was going to be so much fun.
Big thanks to the yesterday's drummers!

I want to compliment you and your associate for the incredible job you did at the HR Leaders Summit sponsored by McFadden Benefits yesterday. I have not participated in an event like the drum session and found it very enjoyable. You and your associate did and incredible job.
Thank you and congratulations on a job very well done. Based upon my experience I will keep you and Drum Cafe in mind for company events we host in the future

Thanks so much for bringing the rhythm and fun to Exile Island! The tribes and volunteers LOVED the Drum Cafe component of the day (as always). We really appreciate you setting the tone for an awesome day. And we’re thrilled to announce we’ve raised over $170,000, granting 15 wishes through Exile Island.

On behalf of the management and staff of Huronia Historical Parks I would like to extend our deepest thanks for the Drum Cafe’s participation in our first Family Discovery Day at Discovery Harbour.
Over 600 visitors attended the event and we had not one single negative comment. Everyone was particularly pleased with the hands-on interaction of your team as well as our other presenters and performers. Yours, in fact, was a crowd favourite!
Hopefully you will consider joining us in future as we anticipate further such events to help promote Discovery Harbour and our region as a whole.

Thank you again for a SUPERB session last night!!! All of our guests were raving about the activity. What a way to close out an event!

We felt we were taking a risk leading an executive level business conference with such an experience, but it turned out to be a terrific decision... across the board that the experience was a complete hit.
Sabine Krauss, Hewlett Packard
Thanks so much for contributing to our event, it was fabulous, people were excited, and even the tough crowd in the back got into it!! Very well done!! It gave our event a great additional dimension, and quite a few people came up to me to not only express that they had great fun, but as well commenting how well versed you were with IPG, and that you probably knew us from before!!
Sheila Wortham, Director, Procurement, Horace Mann Service Corporation
We were so impressed that you quoted our Brand Beliefs and truly incorporated our corporate mission into the performance. In fact, that led to some fun discussion around whether Chris had memorized the info or taped it to the drum, either way, it made for a very memorable experience for everyone.
Craig Harlan, Senior Retail Manager, Kellogg Company
WOW !!!The Drum cafe ROCKS !!!Melinda and the team exceeded my expectations and I did have high hopes based on our earlier conversations. They did a FANTASTIC job with bringing the team together as one gr-r-reat job leading the team. You definitely put some pressure on me for how to top this next year .... any ideas on what to do next time :)
Carey Gallagher, St. John's-Kilmarnock School
I needed to write to thank each and every one of you for a spectacular Drum Cafe event yesterday. We were very impressed by the quality of the program and the energy of the three drummers, especially the leader Chris. The lessons he taught and modelled will last our students and faculty a lifetime.
Janie Thacker, President P2t.ca
Just wanted to say thank you!. It was amazing. The energy, the response I don't think anyone really wanted it to end. We're pitching you for another event in February. Will let you know the details as soon as I can.
Paula Heath, Microsoft
Thanks to the whole gang for doing such a great job everyone had a blast at the event, largely due to the Drum Cafe. You guys were the stars of the day!

I think the best way to describe it is "completely blown away!" You did a phenomenal job! I can honestly say that Drum Cafe was THE highlight of our conference. You truly provided us an uplifting experience that enriched our daily lives!
Rick Mills, CMP, Director of Event Planning and Operations Marriott Rivercenter
The Drum Cafe is a refreshing new alternative to interactive audience participation. The mystique of not knowing what it is all about until you get into the performance is enticing! You must experience it to fully understand!
