Steel Drum Band RythmTrail joins the Blogosphere

RythmTrail Steel Drum Band has officially joined the blogosphere and will share the wonderful stories associated with the steel drum band and people who are entertained by it.

Steelpans (also known as steel drums or pans, and sometimes, collectively with musicians, as a steel band) is a musical instrument originating from Trinidad and Tobago.

In the Caribbean, steel drum bands are very popular with the tourists, but you can enjoy the sweet Caribbean sounds anywhere in the United States and around the world with RythmTrail.

RythmTrail steel drum band located in Florida travels everywhere to entertain guests whether it’s for a tropical styled beach wedding corporate event, or a private party.

As the band travels, this blog will leave a trail as it chronicles the life of these pannists and the people whose hearts are warmed by the music.

What experience have you had with a steel drum band, and how has it touched your life?

I have sang with him for years so who knows better.
