I am always a little skeptical when anything is rated 5 stars and wonder if the rating is deserved or exaggerated, but let me just say Trinidad North is worth every penny. They were awesome. We could'nt have been more pleased with their performance and personalities. If you get the chance to see them perform live, do it. They are that good. Sincerely, The Straiters Anniversary Party
Awesome. He took care of our special requests, and did a stellar job! Would HIGHLY recommend.
Trinidad North Steel Band: 10 stars within the 5 star scale.... Very highly recommend! Excellent rhythm, melody and a very professional sound [great rhythm is critical]. Very accommodating to our requests [calypso focus] as well as taking advantage of "spur of the moment" opportunities: the band creatively set up a "limbo beam," and the 5 children in the wedding party had the time-of-their-lives running and ducking under the beam to the music. This was one of the best home-videos from the reception. Trinidad North was very "in-tune" to our wishes to create a happy and very fun atmosphere for our wedding. One of the best choices we made for our reception!
If you book them, you won't be disappointed! They were professional and played wonderfully. All the guests enjoyed their music!
Trinidad North Steel Band played at the cocktail hour of my friend's wedding, and we thought they did a fantastic job, so we hired them to do the cocktail hour of our own wedding. David Gettes constantly kept in touch with me in the weeks leading up to the wedding, to confirm schedule, attire, and weather-related contingency plans. They were such a hit with our guests, and they even let my mom and myself take a turn playing on the drums for a few minutes! I would recommend them for any event!
From my very first contact with Trinidad North Steel Band, I felt extremely confident that they would be the perfect choice for our wedding ceremony and reception. Being unsure what I wanted to do for music during the ceremony , David made several suggestions of music they could play that would be appropriate for my little church and then carry through to my reception with a total caribbean theme. Our ceremony music was absolutely beautiful, elegant and totally unique and then such fun and authentic selections were performed as our reception began. Everyone commented that our wedding was the most happy, uplifting and fun experience from beginning to end. THANK YOU !!
Dave Gettes, the leader of the North Trinidad Steel band, is a very creative person and his band was the perfect fit for the Sugarloaf Craft Festival in Timonium, MD. We had 15,000 people in over the weekend and he entertained in 12 separtae shows. In addition he gave educational insight into the invention and development of the Steel Drum and inspired young attendees to play some notes between sets. He was a great hit among the entire creative community that gathered for this 33rd annual event featuring artists from all over the U.S.A.
Wedding Cocktail Hour
David Gettes (Trinidad North) was a great addition to our cocktail hour. Everyone enjoyed it (all ages) and many people have asked for their name for future engagments.
Birthday Party (Adult)
David and his son are excellent musicians with a wide repertoir and were great to work with for our event. All of our guests commented about how much they enjoyed their performance. We'd definitely hire them again and strongly recommend them to others.
Birthday Party (Adult)
Overall experience was awesome! I knew from my first conversation with David regarding the event that the Trinidad North Steel Band was going to take our party to the next level- and it certainly did! We will never forget my dad's 60th birthday and a big part of that is because of how special the band made it. Thanks again!

Thanks for leaving the positive feedback.. wish you all the best!! David and Trinidad North
We couldn't have been more pleased with Trinidad North! Our guests raved about their music, and they were the perfect choice for our tropical-themed event. Their music was perfect since it was loud enough to be heard, but no so loud that our guests had to talk over them. They were also a pleasure to work with, and were highly professional.
This band was excellent. All of the residents, as well as our group and the staff, had a great time and we were all thoroughly impressed with the music. They were early and very accomodating to everything. Thank you SO much for the great time!
Country Club Event
Dave and his son were a pleasure to work with. Our event was attended by a broad spectrum of guest and Trinidad North Steel Drum Band was able to connect with them all. They are wonderful entertainers, very accommodating, extremely personable and it would be my pleasure to recommend them to family and friends.
The Trinidad North Steel Band was a hit at our picnic. It created such a relaxing atmosphere and truly gave us a Caribbean feel for the day. Dave was also a hit with the kids!
Very easy to work with, professional, great musicians, good music. Recommend highly and would hire again
