Wonderful, professional, GREAT talent. All of my guests at the bridal shower said that the music MADE the party. Grab them before someone else gets your date!


AfriCarib was a source of phenominal entertainment at my graduation party for medical school. They have many members available for varying party sizes. From the moment I met them there were godo vibes and positive energy. Their sound carried the rhythm of the party and all my guests were raving about them. Even those that you might not expect to like this kind of music were vibing along with the Steel pan and keyboard! Thank you again AfriCarib. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great source of entertainment for a backyard party or maybe background music in other venue medium! also gigmasters ROCKS!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  Heather V. FROM BAY SHORE, NY

Our wedding was a hit hugely in part to AfriCarib! They are talented, friendly and accomodating! They truly made us all feel like we were on vacation with their gorgeous steel pan beats! I would hire AfriCarib again in a heart beat….even guests who were not part of our wedding were asking about them. THANK YOU NEPO!!!!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  Robert C. FROM NEW YORK, NY

A truly great experience! The booking process was simple, and a telephone conversation with Nepo was a pleasant way to assure that he and his musicians understood the nature of the event and our musical requests. The evening of the event Nepo and his Trinidadian steel drum master arrived promptly and were entirely ready when the party began. Their musicianship was superb, and they enchanted the audience with their stage presence and charisma. Many guests commented on how much the music added to the event. I would work with Nepo anytime!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  Rajesh K

The band was great. I would definitely hire them or recommend them to any and everyone. Although it started our rainy the party ended up being a huge success largely because of the band. Do not hesitate to book them! Just be advised they require the remainder of the payment in cash after the performance.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  Ned S

Loved every minute These guys played the cocktail hour at my wedding. Although there weren't many videos of them playing, I booked on good faith and a little prayer :). I requested they come with two pans and no guitarist. Long story short, they were amazing. Everyone loved the steel drum touch and they absolutely deserved the five stars.
