    we just asked for a steel drum band and that's what they gave us. I already knew the 3 songs i wanted and they played them no problem. I think they may also have a list you can choose from.

            This is the website of the guy who's link I posted from youtube.com at the start of this thread:
            Steel Drum Music :: Weddings
            It says he charges $350 an hour and then $1 per mile for traveling fees. This is the only person I have come across (but I also wasn't really looking) but I'm sure you could do a google search.

              We have a single steel pan drummer for our wedding. In fact, that's what I'll be walking down the aisle to. (We're getting married in St. Thomas). He's included in the package that we purchased from our wedding planner.

                We got married at ROR and there was 3 guys playing, they cost $350 for the hour, my husband gave them a Jamaica football shirt he had taken with him and they gave him a cd of their songs. With them playing it made it really special.
