About
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.

This was the second time that I used steel pan Jam for an event. The first was my wedding 5 years ago and now for my mother's 75th birthday party. He was as amazing now as he was then. Everyone dance to the music he was playing and it felt like you were in the Caribbean!

Ron was extremely professional and personable. From showing up early to set up, to allowing Julia to play some of her own music, Ron was also most accommodating! We enjoyed the music and would invite Ron to play for us again at our next party! Thank You Again, Mike and Lori.
