Want to bring steel drums to your next event? Here is some info for you!

We can offer several different group configurations to give you the best music possible for your situation. The Two Pan Player options are the main ones, with the quartet being the full band. We also offer some atlernative One Pan Player options with some different instrumentation - hand drums, acoustic guitar - When things get busy, sometimes only one pan player can be available. In such cases, we can still do the gig with one pan player, and it will still sound great!

Below are all of our current possible configurations.

Contact Phil Andrews for a price quote. We are very easy to work with on the business end of things because we try to keep things as simple and straight forward as possible. If we are available for your event, we will quote you one single price. There will be no extra travel or booking fees. Depending on how far off on the calendar your event is, we might ask you to pay an initial deposit upon booking us, but this would count toward that one price. We can accept checks, cash, or credit card (via Paypal) A few things factor into pricing:
  • Number of hours - We can play for 1 - 4 hours, with breaks after each hour. 
  • Number of performers -  Quartet, trio, or duo (refer to top of page)
  • Travel time/Distance - How far away you are can factor into the overall pricing, but we do not have any extra charges for travel. 


We are all willing and able to travel to many different locations throughout Southern New England.  We have played events in MA, CT, RI, VT, NH, as well as Cape Cod and the Islands.      

Why our clients love us...

We are always on time - Let's face it. Sometimes musicians have a reputation for being unreliable. Well, we are a different breed. We take pride in our professionalism, and will ALWAYS be punctual and reliable.

We can play almost anywhere - Got an event location that you think might be too small for us? I bet we could make it work. We've played in a lot of places, and we have yet to find a situation that we could not work with.

We can project our sound quite a bit without amplification, or we can be softer to stay in the background - This is one of the main things that many of our clients enjoy about us. In general, we have the ability to stay in the background and not overpower people's dinner conversations. Most of the people who play for this group are college-trained musicians, which means we have spent years practicing to be sensitive musicians capable of playing whatever volume is appropriate. Also, steel drums have a huge range of volume. They can be very soft, very loud, or anywhere in between depending on what is needed for the gig.

We play live acoustic music. No pre-recorded tracks - There is certainly nothing wrong with playing solo steelpan with pre-recorded tracks. There are some fantastic steelpan players who specialize in that. But this particular group is dedicated to bringing LIVE acoustic steelpan music to our guests. To us, a group is more authentic and, frankly, more fun!
