About
Yes, we both play steel pan professionally! ;-) We also lead a great band but play in all different size groups with opt vocals! Longstanding musicians in SoCal. B-bday parties, house parties, corporate events, recordings for film/TV, conventions, on ships, and even on a trolley - steelpan has taken us all over! Our goal is to provide you with a deeper level of enjoyment and help bring a festive but relaxing ambiance to your event.

We've dug into this instrument family and its music, down to the nuances, and show it!

(We just rejoined Gigmasters after a long hiatus, so if you see a lot of older reviews, that's why.)

*Now taking 5-min live auditions via Skype or Facetime.* Please note in your bid request.

Thanks for checking us out and please be in touch with any questions.

Abby and Dan added the perfect touch to our 50th anniversary party. Their selection of music was a home run. Abby's vocals and their expertice make them a group that we heartily recommend. Tom & Rita Holwager

We had Nesta (Abby & Dan) play our wedding ceremony and during the reception cocktail hour. They were perfect during both. While planning the wedding, Abby gave us some great suggestions on which songs worked best for the main parts of the ceremony. In addition to the usual parts (processional, recessional, etc.), we wanted a song to be played during our unity sand ceremony. We really wanted Jim Croce's "Time in a Bottle" so Abby and Dan learned it. It was perfect! Later, Nesta provided the perfect feel for cocktail hour--a cool, fun vibe, that still allowed guests to converse. Many of our friends and family later told us how much they enjoyed the steel drums.

Abbey was wonderful! She performed at my 40th birthday party and did a great job setting the mood. She was the perfect addition to our party and I highly recommend her; you will not be disappointed.

Dan was amazing with our (800) elementary school children. It is not easy to grab their attention for half an hour but Dan had them under his spell. The children were impressed by his skills and the event was a great start to kick off our special school week. Thanks for your help!
