MUSIC

As a solo steel drum artist I perform along with pre-recorded background music of the highest quality to bring the sound of a full Caribbean band to the event or party.  In a typical music set, I blend together the rhythms and sounds of traditional Trinidadian Calypso, Jamaican Reggae, Brazillian Bossa Nova and American Jazz and popular music.  Holding this all together is the beautiful sound of the steel drums, hand crafted by Glen Rowsey, one of thefinest steel drum craftsman in the world.

My diverse repertoire also includes Holiday and classical music which sound great on the steel drums for Christmas partys, weddings and formal events.  I will also learn one song of your choice if you have a special favorite that you want to hear at your event, as long as you supply a recording at least one month prior.

INFO/REQUIREMENTS

I require an 8 X 8 performance area with one three-pronged electrical outlet close to the performance space. The steel drums are sensitive to direct sunlight, and can go out of tune quickly as the metal head heats up, so I require a shady area or a 10x10 canopy for performance. I also request a level playing area on a solid surface (no bark, sand, or gravel). Grass is acceptable, as long as the surface is level.

Typically I perform a one hour set followed by a fifteen minute break, and then forty-five minute sets after that.  During the break or even before or after my performance I can DJ music through the sound system or play music that the host supplies.
