"The Diablo Taiko club drummers were the 'opening show' for the first International Festival held at my kid's school. Our school is brand new and our budget was a bit challenging, but they were able to accommodate and were absolutely wonderful. They were graceful, elegant and super nice!! They made a huge impression on the adults and kids alike and included the audience in their performance. I can't say enough about them, everyone loved them. Thank you so much for coming to our school!!!"

We all had a great time....We really appreciate that you were willing to go above and beyond to get a group together to perform at our school."
