Dave Seagren and his Tropical Sound Steel Pan brings the spirit of the Caribbean Islands to life with a variety of tropical music styles including reggae, calypso, socca, Latin and pop. Each set includes songs varying from Jimmy Buffet to Bob Marley to Harry Belefonte as well as the traditional songs of the steel band.
As a solo act with sequenced synthesizer back up music, Dave is at home on the smallest of stages and capable of playing soft enough for a garden party or loud enough to overcome the din of a packed nightclub. Whether you want to quietly sip drinks or limbo the night away, Dave can add the tropical atmosphere you desire. Tropical Sound is also available to perform as a duo or trio.

The steel drum or “PAN” is a unique instrument invented in the 40’s in the Caribbean Islands of Trinidad and Tobago. Hand crafted from a fifty-five gallon steel oil drum, with only hammers and blunted chisels, this instrument produces a beautiful tone that has become synonymous with the music of the Caribbean.
