Steel Drum Flavor was perfect for our wedding, they played at our cocktail hour before guests entered the reception tent for dinner. Nigel is not only the consumate professional but a crazy talented musician. The upbeat music was the perfect kick-off to celebrating and dancing all night. Steel Drum Flavor was an absolute pleasure to work with and traveled to our wedding location out of state. We will always remember what a special day it was. I would absolutely recommend him for any event, your guests will love it!!

Nigel is an incredibly talented musician. He made our island party feel as though we were dockside in the Caribbean. He is professional and accountable. Even with the threat of rain that evening he made us feel relaxed as he said he could break down and set up anywhere. While entertaining Nigel wears a bright smile and plays his steel drum with a happy heart that naturally lures even the shyest of guests towards his beautiful music. We promise Steel Drum Flavor will add the magic to your soiree... just as he did for ours.
Cheers to Nigel!

Nigel Thomas is the best! We hired him for the cocktail hour of our daughter's wedding reception and he was splendid! Extremely versatile, he played a wide variety of music and kept our guest completely entertained while waiting on the wedding party to arrive. Completely professional from start to finish, Steel Drum Flavor is superb!

We booked Nigel Thomas : Steel Drum Flavor - he covered our pre-ceremony, ceremony, cocktails and a part of our reception. I was amazed that one person can sound so amazing and play such a wide variety of music. We were initially concerned about a typically "Caribbean" steel drum being able to play appropriate music for each part of our wedding...boy were we surprised! Everything was perfect - he set the right tone, everything from "smooshing" to dancing!!! He was on time (arrived about 1 hour before starting time), friendly, professional, the music was incredible.

We're recommending them to all of our friends and hope to be able to hire them again in the future.

We are extremely happy with every part of Nigel's performance and flexibility in meeting our needs. He arrived early and had to wait to setup because of our wedding ceremony, but then was still setup and playing on time when we could open up the area for him. Everyone enjoyed the unique steel drum music at the marina and we got many compliments from all of our guests for such an excellent choice. We will definately consider asking Nigel to play at future club events and will suggest that the other sailing clubs on Carlyle Lake also consider Steel Drum Flavor Carribean Island Music for their parties!

Nigel from Steel Drum Flavor was highly recommended to me by another bride, where he performed at her beach wedding. She raved nonstop about Nigel’s energy, skill, professionalism and demeanor. I could not resist, so I showed up at one of his events and was blown away. Well it was not a wedding event, so I was a little nervous in regards to my wedding mass being held in the Cathedral Basilica. Well low and behold, everyone was blown away. It was by far the best wedding experience of my entire life. He arrived an hour and a half before the ceremony. He played prior to the ceremony, during the ceremony and at the cocktail hour. He learned two songs that I requested. The bridal party walked to Canon in D Major. I walked down to Here Comes the Bride. His Ave Maria was out of this world. His version of the Wedding March still has me in tears. It’s unbelievable of what sound that the steel drum can make. . We missed most of the cocktail hour because we were taking photos. However, we arrived during the last twenty minutes of the cocktail hour where Nigel transformed this place. Everyone kept asking me where did I find him. He was so passionate about the music and also smiled to the guest as the gathered at the venue. After he played Margaritaville, my mom said he was better than Jimmy Buffet. I don’t want to be too verbose, but there is not enough space to write about Nigel. Without hesitation, I would recommend him for your next event!.
