Serving Miami FL

Bringing you the steel drum sounds you love and a rhythm that moves you, I can perform anything from Latin music to Reggae. I provide reliable and professional entertainment.


If you are looking for interesting and unique musical entertainment for your wedding, birthday, anniversary, grand opening, festival, corporate event, theme party or other occasion, I offer 10 years experience with the steel drum playing live events. I am a born and raised Trini, of Trinidad and Tobago, of which I have inherited the name The Singing Panman. Ever since I heard the first note played by a Steel Drum, or Steelpan, it has resonated with me and became my passion. My inspiration and knowledge has sprung from contemporary greats as Khuent Rose, Leon Foster Thomas, and Freddy Harris III, as I played aside them. My steel drum and I are available for bookings as a solo artist, duet, or three to six member band. I can present you with musical productions of various genres from Reggae, Calypso, Smooth Jazz, and Bossa Nova to Jimmy Buffet, Latin, Pop and Patriotic. Some works included in my song list include  Buffalo Soldier,  One Love,  Is This Love,  Redemption Song,  Night Nurse,  Blue Bossa,  One Note Samba,  Corcovado,  Pass de dutchie,  Human Nature,  Can&rsquo t Help It,  I Belong to You,  Sweetest Taboo,  Island in the Sun,  Three Little Birds,  I Can See Clearly Now,  Don&rsquo t Worry (Be Happy),  Soul Rebel,  St. Thomas,  Wanna Make You Sweat,  Perfume de Gardenias,  Lambada,  Tristeza,  Star Spangled Banner,  America The Beautiful,  Bahia Girl,  Matilda,  Pump me Up,  Jump In The Line,  Margaritaville,  Volcano,  Cheeseburger in Paradise,  Nani Wine, and  Hammer.

I joined the Florida Memorial Steel Band at FMU under the watchful eye of Dr. Dawn Batson. For two years, I led the tenor section of the Florida Memorial Steel Ensemble, which won the World Steelband Festival in 2000. I am a featured soloist on the FMSB album Live from Old School Square and Turn Your Lights Down Low. I have participated in a  Live TV performance on Telemundo&rsquo s ILevá ntate! program,  PBS program Artstreet Miami ,  Globo TVs  Estrelas! , and the  Univision program ISabado Gigante! .

Tropical grooves was booked for my wedding cocktail hour and they never even showed up. When I finally made it to the cocktail hour after pictures and realized they never came, I tried calling them several times and it went straight to voicemail every time. No communication and not reliable at all! Their excuse was a calendaring error, which is unacceptable in the performing arts! I was so excited and told all my friends and family we would have a steel drum player and everyone was so excited.... Too bad nobody got to enjoy it! Please make your day perfect and DONT book Tropical Grooves for your event!!!
