Trinidad North Steel Drum Band
Trinidad North Steel Drum Band is a musical duo that plays instrumental music that is very lively and festive at the perfect volume. The band plays a blend of calypso, reggae, jazz, and even rock and roll all with a Caribbean flavor that is guaranteed to bring positive vibrations to your event. Most known as the perfect entertainment for a cocktail hour, they also play ceremonies and dinner music if desired and can facilitate an engaging limbo contest!
Trinidad North Steel Band: 10 stars within the 5 star scale.... Very highly recommend! Excellent rhythm, melody and a very professional sound [great rhythm is critical]. Very accommodating to our requests [calypso focus] as well as taking advantage of "spur of the moment" opportunities: the band creatively set up a "limbo beam," and the 5 children in the wedding party had the time-of-their-lives running and ducking under the beam to the music. This was one of the best home-videos from the reception. Trinidad North was very "in-tune" to our wishes to create a happy and very fun atmosphere for our wedding. One of the best choices we made for our reception!
David Gettes (Trinidad North) was a great addition to our cocktail hour. Everyone enjoyed it (all ages) and many people have asked for their name for future engagments.
I am always a little skeptical when anything is rated 5 stars and wonder if the rating is deserved or exaggerated, but let me just say Trinidad North is worth every penny. They were awesome. We could'nt have been more pleased with their performance and personalities. If you get the chance to see them perform live, do it. They are that good. Sincerely, The Straiters Anniversary Party
Dave Gettes, the leader of the North Trinidad Steel band, is a very creative person and his band was the perfect fit for the Sugarloaf Craft Festival in Timonium, MD. We had 15,000 people in over the weekend and he entertained in 12 separtae shows. In addition he gave educational insight into the invention and development of the Steel Drum and inspired young attendees to play some notes between sets. He was a great hit among the entire creative community that gathered for this 33rd annual event featuring artists from all over the U.S.A.
From my very first contact with Trinidad North Steel Band, I felt extremely confident that they would be the perfect choice for our wedding ceremony and reception. Being unsure what I wanted to do for music during the ceremony, David made several suggestions of music they could play that would be appropriate for my little church and then carry through to my reception with a total caribbean theme. Our ceremony music was absolutely beautiful, elegant and totally unique and then such fun and authentic selections were performed as our reception began. Everyone commented that our wedding was the most happy, uplifting and fun experience from beginning to end. THANK YOU !!
