I wanted to take a minute to thank you again for setting us up for an amazing meeting. The meeting was a huge success (the best meeting ever is what I am hearing…but I am partial!) and the first day did set the tone. Everyone on Monday night was asking me if you had a teleprompter since you were right on with the messages that we wanted our reps to hear. If you decide to go into biotech sales let me know!
Thank you.

We used Drum Café to close a recent sales kickoff and they were unbelievable. They really took the time to integrate the event messaging into their performance and engage the audience in a rather spectacular way. The group was also very responsive and easy to deal with. I look forward to the next opportunity I have to work with Drum Café.

I just wanted to follow up and say “thank you” for providing us with a fantastic teambuilding experience at our June Business Meeting.  The Drum Café got rave reviews and everyone was amazed at how well you personalized the event to our business.  It was a pleasure working with you and I would be glad to provide a customer reference or testimonial for you.  Thanks for helping me hit the “homerun”.  I am going to have a difficult time topping you guys the next time around.  I hope we get the chance to work together again in the future.

Wow! The Drum Café certainly exceeded all expectations at our recent Camp Culture event; l can assuredly say that WOW is the impression your TEAM left on our Employees. You really hit the mark with your presentation. The facilitation skills combined both learning and FUN and brought the purpose of the event full circle. It is our responsibility as Leaders at Southwest Airlines to perpetuate our Culture and keep the SPIRIT alive and well. I feel as though with your team’s help we have successfully driven that point home with our MIT [Mgmt In Training] Level II Participants.

What a hit the Drum Café was at our event this week.  In the beginning I really had to do some convincing... but he was so impressed when he experienced the session… you are the master at this!

The Drum Café is THE superb powerhouse at energizing a group.  We are all looking forward to experiencing it again!

The Drum Café was a breath of fresh air when you consider Key note addresses.  Our attendees were not only entertained, they were engaged, and were able to participate throughout the performance.  Mr. Monnin researched our Chapter, gathered information about our history and our members, and “Tailor Made” the presentation specifically for our membership.  I would highly recommend The Drum Café for your upcoming events.

My client loved The Drum Cafe!  Your team was amazing!  For a group that I was told, were very conservative and might have trouble “getting into it”,  they certainly could have fooled me.  They were totally interactive, and had so much fun.  Please thank your team for providing such a great experience.  My client was thrilled!

I wanted to thank the Drum café for performing at our event. I got NOTHING but praises on how much FUN everyone had. The purpose of asking you to attend is that we wanted/needed a bonding experience and everyone in attendance now shares this unique relationship. Those who attended are still talking about it and those who didn’t wish they had. Thank you for the experience.

I want you to know how terrific I thought your opening sessions was for our conference. It was exactly what I had hoped for and I especially appreciated your taking the time to understand our agenda for the meeting and some of the hot spots in our business at this point and weave them into your presentation.

The Drum Café 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! Drum Café creates a synergy and energy that leaves the audience shed of all inhibitions. You must experience it to fully understand!

I want you to know that it was more than a pleasure to work with the Drum Café. You consistently lifted the spirits at each of the eight HP events. Your “welcome” was the perfect way to kick-off our training events- the reps were “open” and excited when our VPs started to speak... It was a privilege to work with your entire team!

I was at the Wall Street Journal’s seminars earlier this week.

I was one the “front row” guys earlier today. I want to thank you and your team for such an outstanding teambuilding session. Without question, you have the most effective, entertaining and memorable one hour teambuilding message that I have ever seen. I know that the JCPenney IT Leadership team very much appreciated the inclusion of so many facets of the IT department. Thanks again. It was a great session. Enjoy the holidays, and the best of luck to you and the team.

The Drum Café was a great experience! We received a lot of feedback about how motivated they felt after the program. Some of the feedback is below:

I would just like to let you know that I REALLY enjoyed our staff meeting with Sodexo today! I thought that was REALLY AWESOME what the guys from Drum Cafe did for us! They REALLY motivated me to be an even BETTER co-worker! To be a BETTER part of a TEAM PLAYER, and to take MORE PRIDE in my work environment! I don't know who's idea this was, but it was a GREAT idea! I ACTUALLY ENJOYED myself! I had MORE fun there today than I have had in a LONG time!!! SERIOUSLY!! I had SUCH a wonderful time tonight! Who would have thought that a work meeting would have been so much FUN!???? GO TEAM GO!!!

What an event! All I can say is WOW! And how happy I am to be a part of such a great team! Today was truly inspiring and totally unexpected! I get the message and will think like a Rock star from now on! Thank you!

Ms. Shawn Murphy

Your overall average “score” was a 4.7 out of 5 points, which is incredibly high. 354 people took the time to write the words “Drum Café” on their eval when asked “What did you like best about this Leadership Development Institute?” The next closest answer to that question was 100 counts of “We liked the football theme.” So, it would be very safe to say that Drum Café was a resounding success. Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart, for taking such great care of us!

I have been at Chubb for 20 years as have most of the senior managers and many of the field staff. Nothing that I have ever participated in through Chubb has had an impact on me the way that Drum Cafe did. People could not stop talking about you, your team, your attention to detail and your overall enthusiasm. I knew that you were special the first time we spoke. There is already talk at the most senior level of trying to book you for other events. Thank you so very much for
making this event an enormous success!!

Thank you very much for today's performance. Nothing but rave reviews from our leadership team. You were a big success! You knocked it out of the park! I was very impressed with how well you incorporated all the information that was in the pre-packet, our mid-year accomplishments and the agenda into today’s program. Again, well done and it was a pleasure working with you on this. I hope to work with you again in the future.

Thank you and congratulations to you and Drum Café for an absolutely stunning team building session at the Wells Fargo Treasury Management Product Management national conference.  You all were clearly the highlight of our three days together and people are still talking about it.  As we had hoped, teammates from many different parts of our company came away from your session with an new and renewed sense of partnership and teamwork.  Your ability to connect the physical aspects and pure fun of rhythmic drumming and clapping to our specific business challenges and opportunities was right on target.  I hope we have the opportunity to engage you again in the future.  Best wishes for continued success.

Thank you and your team for doing such a great job at our meeting yesterday.  Several people have stopped by this AM to say how much they enjoyed the drumming session.  Also they were impressed that you knew all about our Supply org.  – the job titles, locations and changes coming up. 

It was definitely the perfect activity for the meeting.  Well done!   It was a pleasure meeting you all  and working with you.

The evening started off so perfectly with Drum Cafe's keynote presentation.  Everyone loved the experience, and continued to talk about it all weekend....and in fact are still posting things on our Region facebook and sending emails.  It was just what we needed.  Not sure how we are going to match that at next year's Summit.  You've set the bar pretty high!   We appreciate you all working with us and being so generous and gracious.  It provided a great deal of teaming, connectivity, and healing for our participants.  It was absolutely perfect!

THANK YOU for such an amazing experience! I have received non-stop compliments on this team building experience. [The Drum Cafe team] came in with such high energy that transferred to our team.

I just wanted to let you know how happy we were with this team building experience!

We Loved the Drum Café and so totally appreciate the time and effort your team invested in our conference. I am happy to share that, while we were not surprised, your part of the conference got the highest feedback rating.  Impressive.  All but about 10 [out of 150]  gave Drum Café a 5 on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 = Excellent.   We will definitely keep you in mind for the future... Thanks SO very much!

[The Drum Cafe] lead a superb closing for our Leadership Forum.  Participants left on a high and every senior leader asked how did Dale know so much about our company?  How did he tie music and the themes of the program together in such a cohesive celebration?  It seemed like magic to them.  [I] appreciate you and your team!

The Drum Cafe blew us away.  I had no clue what we were getting into when your name was brought to our board meeting, but we were so blessed to have your group close out our conference.  We received lots of great reviews on our critique sheets about you guys.   There are about 20 of us that will be sending a request that Drum Café be considered for our Global conference in October here in Dallas.  If you need someone to give you a review, we would be happy to do so!

WOW, this was the best ever!!  The ladies were blown away and are still talking about DRUM CAFÉ.  Sevylla and your team are so AWESOME. . . .she is a fireball and so engaging.  I knew she would be awesome on the drum but the way she remembered the details from the interview with me and put that information back into the room around our theme and business, WOW!!!   The two guys that accompanied Sevylla were awesome as well..... It was clearly the BEST part of the entire conference and this will be an experience ALL will remember.

 I would recommend Drum Café for a small event like we recently held with DelStar Technologies' Management Team (45 people) or a large group such as the Austin Human Resource Management Association’s Annual Conference (300+).  Your presentation is fun, enlightening and motivational. It teaches us to open up as managers, be a little vulnerable, have some fun and lead with your heart-BEAT.

Mr. David Carlin

 Thank you for doing such a wonderful job at our event on Saturday.  I have heard nothing but positive things about it.  I am also very appreciative of the time and energy you put into learning our company and our culture and integrating that into your performance.  Your remarks were spot on!  I look forward to working with you in the future.

Thank you for a fabulous performance. The members had fun and enjoyed being involved in the experience.

I attended the DFW Hospital Council Foundation Luncheon last Fall.  I’ve attended a lot of similar luncheons and the Drum Cafe definitely transformed the event.  I think all 1500 (or whatever) who were there would agree!

Ms. Stephanie Leopard
Director, Volunteer Services
Methodist Dallas Medical Center



Our group had a GREAT time!  I had so many people (including our VP and management team) approach me throughout the week to tell me how much they enjoyed it!  I think this may have been one of the best teambuilding events I’ve arranged.  People not only appreciated the fun, interactive and musical aspect – but they also appreciated the message – so many times lately, people schedule a “teambuilding” event that is really just social/networking.  The true teambuilding experience is rare.   Everyone was also quite surprised and impressed with your team’s knowledge of our business (the prepping telecon paid off!). I will definitely recommend your company to the other meeting planners that I interact with...!

Just wanted to give you a quick e-mail and let you know that we had many enthusiastic e-mails and comments from associates across the company about the program yesterday.  They really enjoyed it, and clearly, it helped drive the "One Team, One Beat" message home better than words alone ever could have!  The weather may have been cold outside, but the energy was hot inside!!!  We enjoyed having you and hope to cross paths again in the future!

I just had to write you this note to thank you for the motivational "experience" that Drum Café added to our 2014 employee kickoff.  After watching the videos and looking at your website (and being a drummer), I had some expectation of what the event would entail.  But there were some who were skeptical.  Lets face it, there are some that would look at what you provide and feel that it would be "hokey" or "dumb". Far from it.  We are a high tech company and have quite a few musicians, some that have played professionally.  You not only went way past my expectations, you did several things that made the program pop for us.  One, you listened.  You took the key elements that we were trying to communicate and wove those throughout your program, but in an artful way that didn't sound like they were "placed", just a natural extension.  As a professional speaker, I know how hard that is to get right.  Second, your program was high energy and fun (always a plus!).  Third, there was no pressure for everyone to participate.  Those that didn't drum didn't feel bad or wrong (although I noticed that very few didn't participate …).  At the end of the program, when you had all of the groups in synchronization, and we were really going at it, you could see our whole company on the same page.  The CEO was right next to a receptionist, both banging away on a drum in time, both adding to the beat, both a part one overall group.  You should be very proud of your group's efforts to inspire companies like ours.  I suspect you never have a dull or boring day!


Feel free to pass this information on to any that may want a reference on your program.  You may also give my name out as a reference to anyone considering your program.  I have already passed your information on to two entities that are planning fall conferences.  I will beat the drum for you guys, its that impressive!

We had the opportunity to partner with the Drum Café South for our 2013 all-employee town hall meetings. Every year, the head of our division rolls out the strategy for the year to all employees in a series of events that we take to several sites. These events always have some sort of “fun” component. This year, we wanted to include something interactive to build on our key messages. I had no idea that working with Dale & his team would do that and so much more. Not only did our attendees have the chance to pick up a drum & have some fun playing along to different rhythms – the way that Dale and team were able to weave the experience of the drums in to the company culture and key messages of the event was remarkable. Dale worked with us for countless hours prior to the event to learn about our event objectives, attendee demographics and team dynamics. Over the course of 8 events, we delivered the Drum Café experience to over 4,000 employees in 5 different cities across the US. Dale and his team are absolute masters at their trade, and a team that we hope to have the opportunity to partner with again in the future. It is going to be hard to top the success of last year’s events. Thank you for everything!

Once again I wanted to thank you and your team for our event today.  You and your team exceeded my (our) expectations.  After the event, I received comments from several people that stated "you really did your homework" about our firm and came across very knowledgeable about our firm.  The only bad thing I can say is that we're going to have a hellavu time topping this one!!

Mr. John Bruce, Partner
BKD, LLP



This email won’t come close to expressing our sincere gratitude and appreciation for the amazing work the Drum Café did for us last week for our Houston First New Year, New You event.   I can honestly say that the feedback is so positive it’s almost embarrassing.  But I knew that would be the result after the good fortune I have had to work with you over the years.   Once again, you have made me look [good]!!
 
Honestly, there are very few things in this industry (and world) that you can champion and feel confident that the end result will exceed expectations.  I put Drum Café at the top of that list.  I have been lucky enough to see you across different companies with the same consistently exceptional results.  Please consider me a resource to help you be successful ...  The hard part will be trying to surpass Drum Café next year!

Thank you so much for an AMAZING session last week at Shell in Houston.  People are still buzzing over what a great job the team did in lifting our spirits while simultaneously helping us to focus on our conference themes.  A first rate experience from beginning to end. I know we had some security and logistics hurdles to clear so I appreciate your team’s patience with our on-site challenges.  I can’t wait to tell folks about your group and spread the Drum Cafe story of energizing corporate teams with rhythm and spirit!  Thank you all again!

I just wanted to send out a quick message about Saturday’s performance.  I have heard from so many of our providers and our staff that this was the best Drum Café show they have attended!  You really connected with the audience: your message, your dancing and the bilingual language….you had them as soon as they walked into the room.  You totally rocked the show.  You were spirited and enthusiastic, everyone left the show smiling and prepared for the rest of the day's agenda.  I know we would all love to see you in action again!!!!

In my 32 years in this industry, I have had the opportunity to attend many conferences and witness many teamwork building exercises. I have never witnessed a presentation/show that provided such a message of unity and spirit!!! The team was united and energized, a lasting impression!!!   Great job, many thanks!!!
