ABOUT

looking to form steel Drums/reggae band,
In case you don't know a REGGAE band is slightly different than a Steel drums band... I play reggae but I'm mostly into steel drums tropical music.. HAVE DONE MANY SOLO GIGS BY MYSELF MANY MANY BUT I'M LOOKING TO GET A DUO OR MAYBE TRIO STEEL DRUMS BAND. The last musician on stage the better
.... And besides playing in the steel drum I also make my own steel drum got my own shop.
And as far as I know in the midwest there is no steel drum maker.. there are Steel drums players in the midwest but there's no Steel drums makers...
ANYWAY I'M GOING WITH 10% OF THAT BOB MARLEY AMBIENCE. AND 90% OF THE JIMMY BUFFETT AMBIENCE..
DO MOSTLY ANY EVENT BUT LEANING TOWARDS WEDDINGS AND WINERIES. And as you can see in some of my photos on bandmix I make my own steel drums but I also make life-size mannequins out of PVC pipes and cotton. And I've done it in the past have made a life-size mannequin to complement the ambience at for that particular business.. ANYWAY WITH THE COVID-19 IS ALMOST BEHIND US AND BUSINESS IS STARTING TO OPEN UP YOU GOT TO COME DIFFERENT BRO.. and people afraid to travel on vacation too many restriction a tropical band going to be in demand as far as I can see. So this is custom made for me to make a person feel like they are on vacation I got to craft and I got the talent. SO IF YOU'RE FEELING WHAT I'M FEELING WHEN READING MY DESCRIPTION MESSAGE ME ON FACEBOOK OR ON BANDMIX.. I ain't got time for a person that won't just a regular ordinary band with the system starting to open back up you better come different or you ain't going to get work. A WORDS OF WISDOM I DON'T LOOK WHAT OTHER MUSICIANS ARE DOING I LOOK AT WHAT THEY AIN'T DOING
... Again the reason why I didn't download no VIDEO on BANDMIX.. I have too many videos online yes Google my name it says it all.
