From Singapore to Key West, Manhattan to the Caribbean, crowds of all ages and nationalities have enjoyed JOHN PATTI performances. As a steel pan artist, John has blended genres and rhythms into music you might never expect to hear from the island-based instrument. He has been invited to share the stage with national artists as diverse as country star Jerry Jeff Walker, jazz guitar legend and innovator Les Paul, R&B vocalist Nadirah Shakoor and many members of Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer band.
John has been cheered by throngs at the New Orleans Jazz Festival, and recognized as a true talent by veteran Jimmy Buffett band member (and Trinidad steel pan icon) Robert Greenidge. John’s latest releases, Cabana Breeze (2010) and A Calyp-Soul Christmas (2012), are classic examples of his “Island infused jazz and blues” sound. Many selections from both albums can be heard daily on Sirius/XM Radio’s “Radio Margaritaville”.
