Shamel was fabulous! He took the time to learn Canon in D for my beach wedding and he played it wonderfully! Everybody at the wedding enjoyed his music and complemented on him often. Thank you so much Shamel and I will recommend you to anyone who is looking for a wonderful and polite steel drummer!

On a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the highest...I would give them 100!!! They were absolutely amazing and were so well liked that we had them stay for another 45 minutes! Every person at the dinner raved about them and praised me for hiring Mello Vibes for our event. When I first started looking for a steel band, I clicked on Mello Vibes and once I heard them, that was it. I wanted no-one else. I purhased their cd and I listen to it constantly. I would be happy to have anyone contact me with any questions or for a fabulous referral. From contacting me in the beginning to saying goodbye at th end of the evening, Mello Vibes was unbelievable. Thank you so much!!!!

Mellow was amazing! He was a great steel drummer, an amazing reggae musician, and a great DJ! I would definatley refer mellow to anyone who is having a wedding or special event! He made my wedding that much more special... He was great at getting the crowd to be involved and at keeping everyone in a fun dancing mood. Everyone kept asking me "Where did you find this guy? Hes great! I love him!" And if you are on a budget, he is a GREAT one man show!!! Thanks Mellow!

Are you browsing the internet looking for the SWEET & RELAXING SOUNDS of the Caribbean?


"On my events, the steel drum is not only the primary source of music, it can simply be the music that starts the evening. :-) I am that twist to your traditional wedding DJ. I can play my steel drum, sing Reggae and/or DJ your favorite songs throughout the evening. All depends on what my clients want. I have a COOL Caribbean accent to MC your special beach or Caribbean event. I add Vocals during the cocktail hour and through a portion of dinner. I transition into dinner music ,organize the bridal party for introductions, first dances, toasts etc and get the party started with your latest dance hits or old school mixed by DJ Mello Vibes or I can Grab the Mic and put on a LIVE Reggae/Steel Drum Show just like in the Caribbean. Versatile!! The constant transition in music correlates with the rising action taking place throughout your event. This combination breaks the monotony leaving it easy for guests to feel the shift with the power of music. That is how I try to approach my events" :-)

After performing with his Steel Drum Symphony, "Pan Connection", for over 10 years Shamel decided to continue pursuing his passion as a solo artist. Now playing the steel drums for over 24 years, his passion stills radiates an energetic yet relaxing Caribbean Presence. History reflects that Trinidad and Tobago are the originators of the steel drum instrument. Mello was born in St. Croix to a Trinidadian family which gives him a diverse Caribbean culture. Loving the steel drums and reggae music gives him the diversity to display the steel drum with reggae vocals. He was trained by Trinidad natives, Arranger and composer Michael Belgrave and currently an apprentice of local Tampa Bay steel drum legend Mr. Kirby Rampart (who arranges, composes and has performed locally for over 50 years.) This not only equips Mello with the ability to navigate his instrument. But it also provides a background and history of the origination of the steel drum and its legends. With an extensive background with the steel drum, backed by his REGGAE VOCALS and the ability to MC and DJ he will give you an authentic musical display and A TRUE TASTE OF THE CARIBBEAN!!!

Mello Vibes Entertainment is a 1 one man, 2 piece and/or 3 piece band with other talented musicians who play the guitar and/or percussion. Combined with 50 years of professional playing experience, Mello's band members provide a solid musical accompany and foundation. Together, their musical generations will provide a mixture of instruments and musical genres such as Reggae, Oldies, R&B, Smooth Jazz and Calypso AT IT'S FINEST!!!


Whether you are having a wedding, birthday party or corporate event Mello Vibes Entertainment will compliment your social occasion. A “LIGHT SHOW" can also be provided adding a beautiful flair of colors to all night events. (feel free to inquire)

Mello Vibes performed for my wedding reception on November 1, 2008 and we could not have been happier! We were debating between two different performers and we are SOO glad we chose Mello! He was so much fun and our guests really enjoyed him! Everything ran smoothly and he did an awesome job! I would highly recommend him! Thanks again for a job well done!

Mello was absolutely awesome!! He was very professional, accomodating, and helpful at our wedding. He was a super nice guy and really added something special to the occasion. And best of all, his music was great too! Thanks very much Mello!

We wanted to share our fantastic experience working with Mello. We hired him to play the steel pan at our beach ceremony and reception in Key Largo. Words really cannot describe how pleased we were with his performance, professionalism and fun, outgoing spirit. The man is talented beyond belief, loves what he does, and never stopped smiling or having a good time. His vibe was contagious and everyone loved him! Mello's genuine spirit and fantastic music will live on in our memories and hearts. His contribution to our special day could not have been better. We give our highest recommendation out to Mello. Peace and love, Edie & Todd Wedekind ~ Danville, CA

I had a destination wedding from Indiana to Dunedin, Florida. The only chance I had to listen to Mello's music was over the internet. I only spoke to him 2 times over the phone before the wedding. All my nerves were gone as soon as I saw him on the beach ready to perform before the ceremony. He did an amazing job! He also performed during the reception on the beach at Honeymoon Island. He had all my friends up dancing for several hours. Everyone was excited to hear something different than the traditional DJ. I would suggest him to anyone. Thanks Mello! You were awesome!
