Google Duane (Bongo D) Scott for a steel drummer.

I got married in kw last October. We used din Allen. He played acoustic guitar. He was awasome! Also, I saw you had a post about a sunset cruise as well. We used sunset water sports party cat. If you have any other wedding questions feel free to pm me.

My sister used Chris Thomas on acoustic guitar at her wedding. He was great...great singer.

I think he is also in a full wedding band too down there. His website is www.christhomasmusic.net

We used steel pan player Courtney Henry from IrieBand for our ceremony and cocktail hour - he was great!

I like Chris Thomas a lot even though he gave my wife and I a hard time for our request of Jersey Girl. I think he said something like "Here is a great Tom Waits song that Bruce Springsteen ruined. I hate playing it but these folks asked for it". Hey I never said it couldn't be the Tom Waits version!

We used Bongo D for our wedding and loved him! Great guy and everyone enjoyed it. He even let my dad play his steel drum after the wedding. Very reasonable price too!
