Making Events Memorable


Shades of Steel will make your event memorable with the sounds of the steel drum.

Steel drummer and percussionist Richard Maurer offers a wide range of musical styles from Latin, Jazz and Classical to Top 40, Reggae and Caribbean – with a little Jimmy Buffett thrown in for good measure.

Available as a solo, duo, or trio, Shades of Steel can accommodate your every need.  The music of a live performance combined with professional backing tracks will give your event a fully orchestrated sound.

If you need background “under the conversation” music or “kick off your shoes and dance” music – Shades of Steel can fit any occasion.

Let Shades of Steel make your event unforgettable with one of the most unique acoustic instruments, the Steel Drum!
