About
Steel drummer Nigel Thomas from the Caribbean island of Grenada has been playing steel drum in St Louis, Chicago and the entire US for over 20 years. Nigel has been featured on FOX 2 News and Channel 11 (KPLR) News. Whether you want to take a temporary virtual tour in the tropical islands, grab your Margarita, umbrellas, colorful clothes and some island snacks and you ALMOST have the Caribbean in your backyard. Continue to close your eyes, think about your footstep in the sand on the beach, the only thing missing to make this event COMPLETE and memorable is live steel drum music featuring Nigel Thomas from Grenada.

Working as a soloist steel drummer, Nigel has developed a smooth enjoyable playing style which has made him a favorite for everything from small private parties, weddings, graduations, rehearsal dinners, anniversary, engagement, reunion, resorts, hotels, to large public and corporate special events and more! As a pan or steel drum artist, he plays lots of genre including soca, calypso, reggae, dancehall, zouk, salsa, samba, cha-cha, mambo, latin, pop, jazz, soul and blues. His rhythmic sounds can be heard throughout Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Kansas, which include cities like Saint Louis, Kansas City, Chicago and Indianapolis. He and his steel drums are definitely made for each other.

Nigel has been entertaining audiences for more than 20 years through his innovative music that combines the melodic brightness of the Caribbean steel drums with the driving rhythms of Calypso and Latin Jazz.

On your special day, you want your event to be memorable. You can view SteelDrumFlavor's website for further details on pricing, availablility, videos, audios and many more.

We hired Steel Drum Flavor for our annual Christmas Party. Nigel was very professional and entertaining. It's the first year we decided to with an island theme party.Without a doubt, this party has been our best party to date. All our guest loved Nigel and kept asking for his business card.

My daughter had a destination wedding. We wanted a tropical flare to the reception when we got home. Nigel was outstanding! I had him play as the guests were arriving and through the dinner hour. I was given so many compliments from our guests, they loved his music and his performance.
