We provide a unique blend of steel pan and piano, and play essentially every style of music. We are purely an instrumental group, and are always more than willing to learn any requested song(s).
This duo was amazing--they were professional, good-natured (they laughed at a lot of bad jokes) and amazingly talented. Will definitely hire them again
These sweet young men were not only incredibly talented, but also very laid-back. Their go-with-the-flow attitudes made them very easy to work with. Their music was fun & enjoyable and they even learned some songs we had requested just days before the party! Highly recommend this duo for any cocktail / dinner hour.

Terrell Andre Chapman was born on October 3rd, 1993, in Brooklyn, New York. His father, Terrence Chapman, noticed that Terrell had a natural ear for music at a fairly young age. He then proceeded to enroll Terrell in piano lessons, and for Terrell, it was surely love at first sight. Terrell officially began his music career at the age of six, and became the Children’s Choir pianist at his home church, Community Worship Center, by the time he reached eight. Terrell faithfully looked up to Bradley Jones—the music director for CWC at the time—as one of his favorite musicians, and vowed to himself that he would eventually reach that point as well. He became lead pianist at the age of 14, when his family moved churches and started attending the Community Church of the Nazarene in Freeport, New York. What’s more, at age 22, he was appointed as the full-time music director at his church. Terrell has a wide variety of musical influences; the main genres being Neo-Soul/R&B, Calypso, Reggae, Hip-Hop, and of course, Gospel. He strongly believes in never limiting himself, and absolutely LOVES the spontaneous—straightforward, monotonous, congregational hymns don’t exactly create the most excitement for him. He takes that spontaneity in every single song he plays, and is constantly looking for ways to learn and improve his sound. In regards to the Chapman Brothers, he is the musical genius behind the group, and also controls the involvement of social media.
Joseph Benjamin Chapman, who often goes by the nickname “JB”, was born on April 24, 1995. His father, Terrence Chapman was once again the main person responsible for introducing Joseph to the world of music. In addition, Terrence had tons of experience playing the steel pan, an instrument that originated from the island of Trinidad and Tobago. He passed off his knowledge of the instrument to Joseph, and Joseph proved himself to be a natural by the age , f six as well. He performed alongside his older brother for many different functions, expressing a confidence and enthusiasm that is extremely rare for children of that age. These performances also expressed his passion for music in general, and he continues to do so currently. He is completely self-taught, and never had any official pan lessons, being that the pan is such an exotic instrument in the United States. He also picked up the drums at the age of 12, and is currently the drummer for the Community Church of the Nazarene in Freeport. In regards to the Chapman Brothers, he plays the roles of engineer, playing the steel man, and is the primary contact for the group.
