(Donnel aka Dr. D)
- 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’t Help It, I Belong to You, Sweetest Taboo, Island in the Sun, Three Little Birds, I Can See Clearly Now, Don’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’s ILevántate! program, PBS program "Artstreet Miami", Globo TVs "Estrelas!", and the Univision program "ISabado Gigante!".
