About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

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.

WeddingReviewed on November 12, 2022From Lafayette Hill, PA

The cocktail hour for our wedding was a hit thanks to Ron. We had a few hurdles for our venue requiring insurance and Ron was able to help us get that squared away. He is very responsive which is always important when planning an event. We also asked for him to be dressed black tie and he came in a tuxedo! What more could anyone ask for? Our guests are still talking about having Ron’s live steelpan at our wedding. Thank you Ron for such an amazing experience!

Steel Pan Jam:

Thanks for your kind thoughts. I wish you and Kerry all the best in your marriage.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on August 12, 2022From Emerald Isle, NC

I hired the Steel Drum contractor for an exterior 40th BDay Party and of course the day of the party we had a storm. Contractor was great amd relocated the speakers and music equipment into the home. Everything was great and we are extremely satisfied with the service.

Steel Pan Jam:

Thanks! I thoroughly enjoyed playing for you and your family and your generosity was greatly appreciated.
