Double Alto Steel

Do you have a vocalist?
No, not at the
moment. The reason being that most of my clients are primarily
interested in the acoustical melodic and rhythmical beauty of the steel
drums. This feature is strongly favored as it adds that special mood to
most of the events for which I am engaged. Intermittently I use my voice
as color accompaniment to compliment the instrument.
What is sequenced accompaniment?
also means backup tracks. Therefore instead of having a live Drummer, Bass, Piano & Guitar
player accompany me during my performance, every instrumental
accompaniment except the lead
is pre-recorded using hi- end
sequencing modules through computer-based technology. This is
created and produced professionally in a recording studio. The
pre-recorded musical arrangements are then transferred to my laptop and
played through a 300-watt keyboard amplifier during my live performance. Thus
the sound of a full live band is emulated.

Do you perform out doors?
Yes! However open-air
performances require protective shading since the Steel Drum will go
out-of-tune if exposed to direct sunlight. Power requirement? One
standard electrical outlet is needed at stage area (minimum 6ft X 8ft).
Your available lighting is usually adequate. Also available is my
battery-powered backup system to facilitate clients who may need me to
performances in areas with no access to electrical outlets.
