Corporate Event Percussionist Testimonials
"Dekdrum injected an enthusiasm and energy into the event that was not only contagious but greatly increased the overall value of the night. He also demonstrated initiative by going out of his way to promote and generate awareness of the event without being asked. “

We have had David (Dekdrum) perform 3 years straight for us. He adds the WOW factor to our events and has everyone up on the dancefloor at our Christmas Party, every year! See you again soon, David!

"I recently employed David for entertainment purposes at the Body Canvas Festival at the St Kilda Sea baths. I found David to be professional in his conduct and delivered when it counted. He injected an enthusiasm and energy into the event that was not only contagious but greatly increased the overall value of the night. David demonstrated initiative by going out of his way to promote and generate awareness of the event without being asked. At a difficult period in the festival when the rain threatened to cancel the event, David stepped up to the plate and without being asked got in and gave a hand to event crew who needed to move equipment inside. David definitely added value to the entertainment side of the event getting everyone involved and up and out of their seats. I would highly recommend Dave for any future entertainment roles as a bongo player."

I booked Dekdrum for my wedding on the 29/02/2016 at All Smiles in Sorrento. It was the best decision I ever made. David was definitely one of the highlights of our wedding and made all our guests dance. So many commented on how good he was and asked for references for their future weddings. I could not recommend David any higher!

You were both wonderful to work with, super professional and fun. You lead the night as the MC we were able to just sit back and relax and he did a wonderful job. I was so glad that we decided to add the percussion to the event as David's drumming had everyone up and dancing. I don't think I have ever been to a wedding where everyone was on the dance floor! A magnificent job! Thank you!
"Daniel and David were wonderful to work with, super professional and fun. With Daniel leading the night as the MC we were able to just sit back and relax and he did a wonderful job.

"We were fortunate enough to have Pat as our MC/DJ for our night and he made it spectacular. We also took on percussionist David from "Dekdrum", combined the put on an AMAZING night for everyone. There was so much interaction with the crowd and the song choices were absolutely spot on, he read the room perfectly and I dare say at *least* 95% of the people there were on the dance floor at least once in the night! I really cannot recommend Pat and David enough. if you want your special night to be absolutely spectacular make sure you lock these guys in!"

"I had the honour & pleasure of having a wonderful man by the name of David Dekdrum Kirsner aka "BONGO BOY" playing our wedding back in 2012 at The Strand Restaurant in Williamstown. Our guests absolutely loved the different element of having bongos at a wedding. Everyone that came to our wedding told me that they thoroughly enjoyed the wedding especially since we did something different compared to other weddings. David was the perfect party entertainer & I would strongly recommend anyone to have their next party with a unique twist."

Private Function Percussionist Testimonials
"If you ever want to add that special touch to your next birthday or function, David Dekdrum Kirsner is the person. His ability to interact with the crowd and his high level of being a professional yet fun percussionist is second to none. I have hired him for my brother’s engagement party, my own birthday and even for my sister’s 21st. He has never disappointed! The way he interacts with the crowd is amazing. Everyone who came to our parties were so entertained and loved how he got the crowd going. What I love is the way he also gets people to jump on and have a go on instruments in a professional manner, what fun. He is also very adaptable playing to all genres. I would highly recommend him as he makes a difference to any party! He is always my first choice when I’m looking to add that special touch. Dekdrum, keep it up!"
"I knew I wanted people to remember my 40th birthday party long after it was over. Dekdrum's performance on the night made that a certainty and even 6 months after that memorable night, people are still talking about the entertainment! The party was going well but when Dekdrum arrived and did his thing, let’s just say the party launched into the stratosphere. He delivered the brand of entertainment that only Dekdrum knows how, and not a single bum was left sitting on a chair. The one man carnival had come to town! It was a case of either all bums on the dance floor or all hands playing bongos. Dekdrum’s interactive style got even the most introverted of our group pressing their way up to the drums! His personable nature and coolness under pressure, make him the perfect choice for occasions where you want not only great talent and entertainment but also initiative to come to the rescue if and when things go wrong, or to think of the things that you often wish someone had thought of, but often too late. Dekdrum ticked all these boxes and more. He not only performed energetically on percussion but also acted as an impromptu MC/host of the party. He went out his way to help make the night run smoothly while entertaining us with his well timed beats that kept us dancing like youngsters...until very late! Dekdrum is a dynamic showman and entertainer for all ages! I would highly recommend Dekdrum for your next function and look forward to having him at our next."
Nightclub Percussionist Testimonials
"Bongolito (aka bongo boy) simply adds the cherry on top to our very passionate, sexy Latin tunes and Latin flavour at SABOR at Marrakesh! Sounds, plays and nearly acts like a Latino- no wonder he is well known for the Latin passion and energy that comes from an artist with full of life, a true Latino!
All the Latinos, our patrons and Sabor family love him! An irreplaceable artist! "
"David Dekdrum (or as he became affectionately known - Bongolito) was a fantastic performer and percussionist at Marrakech Cocktail Bar. Playing for our weekly night that was Sabor, his rhythm and style of playing was unsurpassed. His ability to engage with and include the clientele was fantastic adding a great ambience to the entire night. So impressed were we that even when the weekly night Sabor finished up at Marrakech, we decided to keep him on for ourselves and the results speak for themselves. I thoroughly recommend anyone looking for a percussionist for whatever the occasion to contact David to see what difference he can make to your event."
Marrakech Cocktail Bar
"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 was very interactive with our crowd and his live remixing skill on bongos worked wonders over various genres played at the club. It is something worth watching. He always acted 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."
