About Booking Steel Drum Players
Book the quintessential sound of the Carribean! Entertainers who play the steel drums, or pans, aren't just from Trinidad and Tobago, as the steel drum has become quite popular among American-born musicians as well. In the steel drum players' repertoire are often traditional Carribean pan songs, oldies, classic rock and top 40, and many steel drum players also play classical music. When you need to bring the beach vibe to your party, you can't go wrong with a steel drum soloist.
There are a few things you should consider when hiring a steel drum player. First, be sure to listen to audio and watch video samples. You want to be sure you are satisfied with the sound and look of the performer before you book him/her. Next, get references and read reviews. Talk to people in the area who have seen the drummer and/or have booked them in the past. Feedback is the best way to ensure you book the best. Last, always get a contract. Read the contract carefully and work out any details in regards to deposit requirements, length of performance, scheduled breaks, attire, travel, and lodging. Watch for specifications made by the performer and be sure you can meet them.
