Tropical Music Productions has been providing music for the most discerning of clients since 1986. The Caribbean Cruisers perform at about 150 Special Events per year, mostly in the tri-state area but also out-of-town and overseas. In our 28 years we have entertained presidents, dignitaries, celebrities and the largest of corporations at the most famous venues in NYC. We strive to work closely with our clients to assure that our audiences can take full advantage of what we have to offer, and that our appearance at your event is something we can be proud of.

Band size can be from 2-10 pieces. Small groups of 2-3 pieces including steel drums offer an instrumentation perfect for background or atmosphere. As more instruments are added, more repertoire and energy can be created. Marimba Man Arthur Lipner’s marimba (, when available, will add a touch of virtuosity and class to make your event even more memorable.

Steel drums are unusual instruments due to their pitch range and challenging technique. They require musical knowledge and professional know-how to play. The same goes for properly planning Steel Drums and Caribbean Music for your event. Making a decision only by comparing prices in emails or short phone conversations often leads to an undesired outcome. So, at any stage of planning please give us a call to discuss the possibilities for your event. We offer you the voice of seasoned professionals - on the phone and on-site! (212) 288-1133 or (203) 761- 0357.
