$150 - $150 per hour
I am a native Trinidadian who has been playing authentic Caribbean music on the steel pan all over the island since I was 15 years old. I performed in concert on the same program with calypsonians Mighty Sparrow and Lord Kitchener and currently play some of their favorites, as well as those sung by Harry Belafonte. Also performed for Senior White House personnel, Presidential Inaugural parade, and US Attorney General. I am available for lectures to schools, history clubs, music societies, and other similar organizations on the history and development of steel pan music from its origins in the 1930s to the 21st century. Genres of live music played include calypso, soca, reggae, R&B, smooth jazz, oldies, and pop.

Mr. Ron Emrit/Steel Pan Band was an excellent addition to my Family event. His professionalism, character, and attention to a quality style of music allowed everyone to enjoy and appreciate his musical talents, gifts, and abilities. I would without question recommend him to others and will if he is available book him for any event I am hosting in the future.

Mr. Emrit was equal parts professional & casual. He was the perfect fit for our outdoor poolside event. He plays steel pan to recorded music & comes equipped & prepared with a small sound board & (2) 500 Watt speakers. He brought his own extension cords as well. We booked for 3 hours & he played every bit of 3 hours. Mr. Emrit arrived early to set up & began playing precisely at the previously agreed upon start time. His music is what I would consider light listening with an island flair. I would definitely recommend Steel Pan Jam.
