I play a mix of traditional and contemporary songs

From Buffett to Beatles, I have 2 1/2 hours of repertoir ready to go

Consider adding an island flavor to your next party, event, or venue!

Memorable Occasions

Adding island sounds will give a special touch to your event or party and make it memorable.

Consider steel pan music for Private parties, Festivals, Restaurants, Clubs, and Wedding receptions.

I live and perform in the Central Ohio area.

I perform on the side, so weeknight availability is usually limited to after 6pm.

Music For Venues

I can play venues accommodating crowds up to 150 people.

I require only a single 110v outlet, at least 4'x6' of flat ground or floor space, and shade if the event is outside.

I have a portable battery system, so power is not an issue.

I play with professionally produced backing tracks over a high-quailty PA system.
