About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

You'll feel the sand between your toes as you enjoy the authentic Caribbean steel drum music of Shabang, the premier steel drum band in the San Francisco Bay Area and northern California. Their engaging melodies and lyrics set to the infectious rhythms of Calypso, Reggae, Zouk, and Soca, and highlighted with the indigenous sound of steel drums or steelpans, will take you on a virtual Caribbean vacation. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, these steel drum players have been the darling of the corporate party scene in Northern California, Tahoe and Reno for more than a decade. Shabang's music is soothing, enchanting, exotic yet unobtrusive. They can be romantic, mystical or humorous, all in a relaxing spirit of fun. With seasoned sensitivity, these steel drum musicians have developed the skill of tempering their music to suit their audience and venue. They are the perfect addition to your Caribbean or tropical party or event.
