I am a solo steelpan performer, but I also play with two- to four-piece ensembles and larger bands, depending on your need. Many of my musicians (vocalists included) have recorded, and some of them have played with top Caribbean artists such as Sparrow, Calypso Rose, Red Plastic Bag, Israel Vibration and Maxi Priest. We are totally professional. I have played at the U.S. Open tennis championships at Flushing, NY, Javetts Center in the city, and I often play events in New Jersey, Long Island and Westchester. I have played at trade shows from Boston to Washington, DC. My repertoire includes calypso/soca, reggae, Latin, pop standards, hymns, and even some classical. I have played on beaches, streets, parks, in private homes, and in the most luxurious country clubs and catering halls in the tri-state area. I can proudly say that to date I have had no unsatisfied clients. I play weddings and showers, graduations, pool and back yard parties, bar/bat-mitzvahs, retirements, senior homes, churches, trade and bridal shows, and of course all kinds of corporate events. My music (played over tracks through speakers) sets the mood you want, and I have uploaded some of it here for you to sample. Although I play hundreds of songs by ear, I also try to accommodate your requests when possible.
