I'm Erynn Krebs and I'm a professional musician from Northeast Ohio. The steel drum is the food that feeds my soul. If you're looking for a laid back escape or a rockin' good time, you've come to the right place. Over the years I have been honored to be an integral part of countless weddings, receptions and cocktail hours, birthday/graduation/retirement/block parties (surprise!), corporate events, luaus, restaurants/bars, Christmas parties, concerts and more! I play with or without backing tracks. I have over 10 hours of backing tracks so I guarantee a little something for everyone. I can bring the party or the laid back island vibe or both! The choice is yours!
Our event was a bit out of the ordinary, and Erynn was the only drummer to respond that "got it". From the very first message to her performance, all the way to the end, Erynn was perfect. She was accomodating, kind, helpful, humble and sincere.
Her talent on the pans is exceptional, and her smile and demeanor are infectious.
10/10, would book again!
Price Range: $150 and up
Gig Length: 30 - 360 minutes
What to Expect
An upbeat good time! We are professional musicians. We joyously bring a high level of experience to every gig and are always raising the bar. We also work with several of the booking agents in the NEOhio. If you look around, you'll also see us performing (solo, duo and in other bands) at various venues, public and private, through the area.
We can perform acoustic or with amplification (elec. req).
"One of the things I love about music is live performance." - Yo-Yo Ma
I play a wide range of music to make your event/party special! Let the relaxing sounds of the steel drum bring your guests and friends to an island state of mind. Unwind and recharge with mellow calypsos, dance-demanding socas, one drop reggaes, top 40 hits and much, much more! If you're looking for a laid back Caribbean escape or a rockin' good time, you've come to the right place. I've got an expansive set list that covers bases you never thought the steel drum could cover.
I do many types of events (all of them!) from concerts, all things wedding related (rehearsal dinner, ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner music, etc), corporate events, backyard/block/pool parties, birthdays (surprise!), graduation parties, beach bashes, grand openings, retirement homes, educational sessions for kiddos about the steel drum from it's fascinating history to how the instrument is actually made, and so much more...
Erynn has been playing music professionally for over 12 years in Northeast Ohio with Wilbur being a professional musician for the past 40 years performing from California to Ohio and everywhere in between. We've been lucky to be an integral part of many events over the years. Weddings, parties, anniversaries, retirement homes, concerts, educational school performances, grand openings, festivals, libraries and much more. We perform often as a duo (aka Dog Friendly duo) but also solo acts with a steel drummer and backing tracks just as much. Hire one of us or both! Whatever suits the needs of your event. As our duo, Wilbur plays guitar, drums/percussion and vocals while Erynn plays steel drums, bass and background vocals.
Additional Booking Notes
Electrical outlet within 50 ft and shelter from the elements (sun, rain, etc) and lighting if in dark location.
I (or we) bring the rest. All amplification, mics, cords, instruments and needed equipment. And speaking mic if desired.
Please note, I do require cover/shade from the sun and other elements. The steel drums actually go out of tune in the gorgeous sunshine. Thanks!
