Andrew Romero Arranger and Steel Drum player. Was born and raised in George Street P.O.S. Trinidad and Tobago, (West Indies) where the Steel Drum was invented. This amazing and innovative instrument was invented in the late 40's early 50's
I have been playing the steel Drum for over 25 years. Playing this instrument was and still is my passion. I love to see the joy and amazement when people hear this unique sound from the Steel Drum. I was inspired by, Lenox (Sunny Tool) Alleyne from Catelli Trinidad Allstars, Steve (Snag Head) Alexander from Witco Desperadoes. Arrangers and composers: Robert Greenidge from Witco Desperadoes, Len Boogsie Sharpe from Phase II Pan Groove, and Clive (Cokey) Telemaque from Catelli Trinidad Allstars.
I played with four top steelbands in Trinidad and Tobago: Catelli Trinidad Allstars, Jewell 22, Carib Tokyo, and Witco Desperadoes.
I migrated to Brooklyn NY, where I continued playing the Steel Drum and started my own steelband C.A.S.A (Caribbean American Steel band Association) with the full support of my uncle Cabbriel (buntin) Williams. This Steelband Association was also responsible for implementing the steel drum in schools across New York, and tutored the steel drum with the board education. I performed with various artist, Conventional Bands and Steelbands as well, in Brooklyn, Long Island, New Jersey, Staten Island, Boston, Washington DC, and more.
I moved to Florida where I was given the great opportunity to share my talent. I Arranged for Sunphonics Steel Orchestra. This Steelband performed at many different venues' and occasions including the Miami Caribbean Carnival, Key Largo, Key West, West Palms, Fort Lauderdale and more.
