During the lockdown, we have been forced to get creative. As a result, our steel drum band, solo steel drum players and our Caribbean Musicians have done quite a few virtual performances. These have included a virtual wedding in Orlando and virtual events in Jacksonville, Tampa, Sarasota, Saint Pete Beach, Clearwater Beach and Miami, Florida. Of course, it’s not the same as performing in front of a live audience, but we have really enjoyed these virtual shows. Not sure if this is the wave of the future or a band-aid until things return to normal. However, we are still happy that we get a chance to perform our steel drum music, reggae music, calypso, soca and other types of Caribbean Music for audiences anywhere in the world.
So whether you are hosting a virtual conference, an intimate wedding, a birthday party, graduation party, or anniversary celebration, The Caribbean Crew Steel Drum Band is available to do a virtual performance for you. We make it very personal, where we take requests and also dedicate songs and give shout outs to the attendees and guests of honor. Please check out the video below of a virtual performance we did a few weeks ago for a couple in Georgia who were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. They really enjoyed the steel drum music! Please call us at 407-788-BEAN (2326) or email at [email protected] to book The Caribbean Crew Steel Drum Band for your next virtual event.
We hope everyone is OK and staying safe. People have been asking what our steel drum band, solo steel drum players and our Caribbean Musicians have been doing with all this time off.
First of all, we all miss performing our steel drum music, reggae music, calypso, soca and other types of Caribbean Music for our weddings, corporate functions, house parties, etc. But since we can’t perform live at the moment, we have all been staying busy during the downtime, but in different ways.
Most of our steel drum players live in Orlando, but some also reside in other parts of Florida, like Tampa, Sarasota and Miami. They have all been spending time practicing and honing their skills on the steel drum. That way, when things get back to normal and we can start booking beach weddings, festivals and other live performances again, everyone will be sharp and the steel drum music will be on point. The same applies to our other Caribbean musicians, like our keyboardists, guitarists and percussionists.
Some have been enjoying outdoor activities like cycling and swimming. Chesley has been riding his new bike every day and getting in his miles, while Creig has been swimming laps in the pool almost every day (see pictures above). So whether it’s outdoor activities, or honing our skills inside, our steel drum band, solo steel drum players and Caribbean Musicians are keeping safe, staying sharp and healthy and ready to return to provide the best steel drum and Caribbean Music in Florida. We hope that everyone is also staying safe and we can’t wait to see you!
