We are a husband and wife team who are full time, professional musicians who specialize in steel drums and Caribbean music. What really makes us unique are our musical arrangements for wedding ceremonies, which are buttery and gorgeous (yes, even on steel drums this is possible!). We perform for many, many wedding and other types of events annually (1800+ events between us). We have a long list of happy clients - as we are highly experienced and trained by the best.The big reason we perform so much is that, in addition to exhibiting professionalism, clients distinguish us for our very musical and high-caliber steel drum performances. Most of all, we are passionate about what we do. We love steel pan. This is our passion, our specialty instrument, and the music we listen to even in our personal lives.
Available from a steel drum soloist to a 7-piece band, with vocals or just instrumentally. Indoors, outdoors ok. Read less

I hired Nesta to play during the ceremony and cocktail hour of my wedding at Hotel Laguna in Laguna Beach. Nesta's years of experience playing weddings (and other events) was apparent from the moment we spoke on the phone to how they worked with me to tailor my special day! I asked them to create a beachy & relaxed, yet upbeat vibe and they were nothing short of amazing. They were very helpful with song suggestions, giving me lots of ideas and direction. My wife and I were delighted with their professionalism, punctuality, and absolute talent!

Nesta played for my beach wedding in California and they were perfect! Not only were they willing to play a special song not in their playlist, but they were prompt, professional, and sounded great! I got so many compliments and was told the steel drum duo and marimba really brought the whole beach theme together. I highly recommend them

Having grown up with steel drums in the Virgin Islands, we thought we'd add a little bit of island flavor to our nuptials by having Nesta Steel drum band play for our wedding ceremony on beach and during our cocktail hour at the Annenberg Community Beach House in Santa Monica, California. We were very impressed with their professionalism, the variety of songs they knew and how well they played...My only regret is that I did not get to hear (or dance to) much of their performance during the cocktail hour because we were busy with our photographer after the ceremony. I certainly hope to find another opportunity to have them play in the future! 4 thumbs up! (for myself and my new husband)
