A CALYP-SOUL CHRISTMAS kickstarts your holiday season… Island style with exciting new takes on some favorite Christmas classics.

Steelpan artist JOHN PATTI combines the unmistakable sounds of the islands with jazz and soul music, creating unforgettable versions of your Christmas favorites!
You’ve never heard holiday music like this!

Classics such as Silent Night, I’ll be Home for Christmas, and Baby It’s Cold Outside take on new life with smooth vocals, funky bass, and melodic steel drum.
These energetic grooves and new arrangements create a fresh Christmas sound unlike any other.

John Patti is known for bringing the steel pan to the forefront of musical entertainment, expertly showcasing the instrument’s unique island flair and history. With credentials including performances with Janet Jackson, Al Jarreau, Arrested Development, Cheryl Crow, Les Paul, Jerry Jeff Walker, Air Supply, Paul Overstreet, Mac McAnally and of course Jimmy Buffett, these world-class musicians are guaranteed to give an unforgettable night of music and entertainment.
