I am a Caribbean/Calypso Steel Drummer. I have a wide range of music in my repertoire that would play well to any event. Whether it is a Party, Reception, Wedding, Banquet or Corporate event, my Music will emerse you in the feel of the CARIBBEAN. I play to fully orchestrated rhythms and the resulting music is "Amazing". I have over 18 years of experience in playing Steel Drums, and all of my clients who wrote, have given me (documented) "5-Star Reviews".
I perform a mix of traditional and contemporary songs as a Solo act, or, a Duo of Steel Drums and Guitar/Vocals; as well as a Trio of 2 Steel Drummers and a Guitar/Vocalist are also available.
Liven up you event by calling 'da "Panman".
Norman was great to work with for our beach-themed event. Not only was he a fun performer, he was also very responsible and flexible. The crowd really enjoyed his music and he was very entertaining to watch. We will definitely book him again if we have another event like this. Thanks Norman!
Norman made a huge impression on everyone at the party. We celebrated our mothers wedding that took place in the Caribbean so it was perfect to have his steel drum music playing in the background. I highly recommend him for any party, he makes a great ambiance.
Response from Norman Riley:
Thanks Ryan. I had a great time playing for wonderful people at a great lake setting.
Norman was the perfect addition to our Ice Cream Tasting festival! He was very professional, I didn't have to worry about a thing. His music set the tone for a fun and joyous evening. His limbo contest was so fun and I am getting so many comments from festival goers about how much they loved his unique and fun show! Thank you, Norman! I can't wait to work together again!
