"David Dekdrum was a great asset to our team as a percussionist. He not only performed weekly for our 2 year long residency at Wah Wah Lounge, he also performed at our other events and even private functions because we love him and his magical fingers tapping his bongos! He is very interactive with our crowd and his performance is effectivly live remixing of a track on the fly! His skill on bongos works wonders over various genres played at our nightclub. His act is highly energetic and visual. He always acts professionally and was very easy to talk to and get along with. He is a core member of our team and wish him with all the success alongside the company and also any other external ventures. Lastly, If you have not seen Dekdrum perform on his bongo drums, you are surely missing a treat for your eyes and ears and if you are lucky, you may get a lesson on the dancefloor."
