City of Performance :

State of Performance :

Please make sure to fill this in if your event is outside of Washington State.

Zip Code of Performance :
Country of Performance :

Please make sure to fill this in if your event is outside of the United States.


Type of Performance :

Please choose one of the 4 options from the drop down menu above.

Private – Choose this option for private events or concerts of any kind.

Public – Choose this option for events or concerts that are open to the general public.

School-Library – Choose this for any educational concerts and events held at schools or libraries

Wedding – Please choose this option for weddings, rehearsal dinners, or any wedding related event.


Sound System :

A sound system is required for the performance of Ian Dobson’s Pan Leggo. Please choose the best option for your event from the drop down menu above.

Standard – Choose this option if your event has up to 500 people listening and/or the space where the sound needs to be audible is no larger than ½ a football field. We do not put microphones on the drum set with this setup, so it isn’t ideal if you want really thumpin’ dance music, for example for a large dance hall or street dance.

Small (you save $30 with the small sound system)– Choose this option if your event will have less then 100 people listening and/or the space where the sound needs to be audible is no larger than a tennis court. While we strongly recommend providing electrical power for your performance, all configurations of our performance are available without power using a battery powered amp. Please also choose this option if you think we may have to perform without any power.

None (you save $60 on the musicians but need to provide the sound system)— Choose this option if you are providing the sound engineer and audio equipment. We recommended that you provide a professional sound engineer and sound system for events with more than 500 people listening and/or the space where the sound needs to be heard is larger than ½ a football field. This is also recommended for a large dance hall, outdoor street dance, or any other situation where you need the drums and percussion to be thumpin’.



Covered Performance :


For outdoor performances we require a performance area that is protected by cover for the duration of the performance as rain and direct sunlight are extremely harmful to the musical equipment. Pop up 10X10 tents are great for rain or shine and picnic umbrellas work fine for sunshine. Steel drums are surprisingly fragile, very difficult to obtain, and even harder to keep in tune, so cover is very important.

No Cover – Please choose this option if you are unable to provide protection from either rain or sunshine the as described above.

Rain Cover – You cannot provide shade for the instruments in the planned performance location but have an alternate location that will protect the musicians and equipment from getting wet if it rains. YOU'LL SAVE $30!

Complete Cover-Indoors –Choose this option if your performance will be indoors or if you I can provide cover from sun and rain as described above. YOU'LL SAVE $100!

Our Role in Your Event :

We can effectively play various roles in an event and it is important for us to know what your concept is so that we can gear our set list to fit your vision. Please choose the option from the drop down menu above that best fits your event.

Strinctly Background – Choose this option if you want us to play strictly background music to enhance guest conversation or for other supporting rolls in your event.

Play it by Ear – Choose this option if you would like us to just use our best judgement and read the crowd to decide when and if we try to get the crowd engaged.

Strive to Engage –Choose this option if one of the primary goals of your event is to get the guests or audience involved. We will use our years of experience to do our very best to tactfully and deliberately entice even the most reticent crowd to join in the fun and participate in our joyous music.


Performance Locations :

Please choose the option from the drop-down menu above that best fits your plan for your event.

Musicians in One Location (RECOMMENDED)– choose this option if musicians will be in one location the entire performance.

Roving Part of Time – Choose this option if you would like us to perform roving music for short periods of time (generally 15 minutes maximum)

2 or More Locations - Generally speaking we do have a lot of equipment and aren't terribly portable. In certain situations a move can be arranged though. Please choose this option if you are interested in having us perform in multiple locations at your event. We will need to discuss this with you to see if it is feasible.


Repertoire :

Please check this box to indicate that you are happy for us to perform your standard repertoire of fun, tropical music at my event. Please click here to view a list of our current standard repertoire

If you have specific songs you would like performed at your event, please list them the song titles below. Please be aware that we generally have to charge extra for arranging and rehearsing song requests that aren't already on our standard repertoire list above.

How Did You Find Us-Other :

If you heard about us some way that wasn’t listed above in the question “how did you hear about us,” please explain here how you found us.


Sound Engineer Contact Info :

If you are providing a sound engineer and sound system for your event please provide in the box above the sound engineer contact information (name, email, phone).

Standard Power :


Our standard power requirement is one standard (120v AC 60Hz 20amps) electrical outlet (extension chords okay) within five feet of the performance area. Generators are generally not acceptable as our electronic gear is high-end and can be damaged by generators.

Options are available if standard power is is not available, but the presentation will be much superior with power available.


Free Parking Provided :

Please check this box if you are able to provide free parking for each band member within 1 or 2 blocks of the performance site (4 parking spots for 4 musicians, 3 spots for 3 musicians, etc.) If we have to go a long distance to find parking it can interfere with our ability to start on time.

If you are unable to provide parking that is free and/or within 1 or 2 blocks of the performance site then parking time and fees will be included in the musicians fee.

Load In :

We do have a fair bit of equipment so it is important for us to plan our load in and load out. Please choose the correct option above so that we can plan accordingly and make sure our performance goes smoothly.

Easy Load In-Out – Please choose this option if loading from vehicles to the performance area musical equipment will NOT have to be carried up more than 5 steps or rolled more than 100 feet.

Difficult Load-Helper Provided – Please choose this option if the load in involves more than 5 steps and-or 100 feet but you can provide at least

One able bodied helper up to 2 hours in advance of our setup complete time and up to 2 hours after our finish time. Hey everyone has dreamed of being a roadie at some point!

Difficult Load-No Helper Provided – Choose this option if the load in is involves more than 5 steps and-or 100 feet and you are unable to provide a helper as described above. We will need to charge extra for your event to pay a roadie.
