Kent Arnsbarger steel drum artist

Based in La porte IN



Add that Island flare to your next party or event!! Kent Arnsbarger is a solo steel drum performer using an iPod to play VERY high quality backup tracks (all played & recorded by him) over a very compact and amazing sounding state-of-the-art Bose PA system. The sound files you hear on this page are from his 6 CDs, all on iTunes or on his personal site. These sounds are the exact backup tracks he uses live, minus the lead pan. What you hear is what you get!! 

Kent has performed at over 1,400 different venues from wedding receptions to birthday parties, resorts & restaurants, Zoos & colleges, casinos and corporate parties since 2004 .  Professional lighting will be added for evening events. 

Kent has performed on television several times (along with a two hour interview on WGN radio) and has opened for the world famous Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. 

He also teaches percussion privately and is the percussion instructor at several high profile schools in Indiana for their marching band programs. Kent is a classically trained percussionist from Indiana University. 

Kent uses REAL percussion instruments and NOT midi sequencers or drum machines. Your ears (& your guests) will surely notice the difference.
