In my work as a professional Caribbean steel drum performer for over 20 years, there has been a growing interest among couples around the region wanting to incorporate elements of a destination wedding into modest budgets or geographical commitments. Steel Drum Flavor offers the romance and thrill of that island breeze in musical entertainment that is sure to complement nupitals in a magical and unforgettable way.

From Our Website

We were thoroughly pleased with Nigel - Steel Drum Flavor! We have a banquet event every year, but have never had live musical entertainment. Because we changed our venue this year to St Louis Zoo, we wanted to "class" up the event and Nigel certainly helped us do that! He arrived early and was completely prepared. He played the best rendition of Margaritaville that I've ever heard! We would certainly hire Nigel again and I have already recommened him to friends and co-workers. Throughout the eventing, at least twenty people asked me how to hire Nigel!
