Plan your event early and try and book a few months in advance, especially during the peak summer season and on weekends. All live performances are booked on a first-to-sign contract basis.
Provide a shaded area or space for a tent or umbrella, steel drums cannot be played in direct sunlight, this will heat the metal and damage the tuning. (Musician will provide tent or umbrella if needed.) Allow ample space for a 10 x 10 ft. pop-up tent or umbrella for shade or rain protection and also access to electricity. (Note: Smaller acoustic set up requires smaller space.)
Steel drums and equipment cannot be set up on grass or bare ground, to prevent large speakers from possible falls.
If weather conditions are a possible issue, please make arrangements for an alternate performance site.
Musician usually arrives about an hour before play time. Multiple hour performances are usually 45 minute sets with a 15 minute break in between.
Live Steel Drum Music
“When you book a musician to perform, you’re buying more than music for a one time event. You’re buying hundreds of hours of practice and performances. You’re buying years of hard work, expenses and moments of pure joy. You’re not buying just one thing, you’re buying a piece of a heart, a part of a soul, and a treasure of someone’s life.”
