I am getting nothing but compliments from my wedding guests on how beautifully Richard played. He even took the time to video the song I requested to walk down the aisle to before my wedding! Definitely will use him again for future events!

Bio

I have taught myself steel drums. I started on Piano and Accordion at the age of 6,
but the taste of music has changed so I am now concentrating on my steel drum performance. Having studied classical and jazz piano I am now applying this to steel drums.
A very nice change of style from the piano, This is a more of a percussive instrument which has allowed me to express my music in a different manner. I am working on several steel drum cds. One is classical , geared to wedding ceremonies the other a caribbean , Soca type that will consist of my originals.
Currently studying the classical guitar., I find this instrument to be the most difficult that I have studied. Working on my masters in guitar performance.
