CruzanVibes

Fort Myers, FL
I am a 43 year enthusiastic Bass player, Solo Steeldrum player and Vocalist; I was born and raised in St. Croix a US Virgin Island, and I am the founder of Cruzanvibes Band! I relocated to SW Florida 22 years ago and helped my father and his band members as they performed as: "SOUTHWEST FLORIDA STEELDRUM BAND”. 2 Years later my father started a new group called CARIBBEAN STARS; at this point my father taught myself, my 2 brothers and my sister how to play steeldrums. I played a 6 piece Steeldrums Bass at the time. Then in 1991 my father had a terrible accident, which landed him in a wheel chair. In 1993 I picked up an Electric Bass and formed my own Reggae Band called ISLAND SOUND, while my father was in recovery from his accident; after his recovery we then regrouped as: "ISLAND SOUND REGGAE STEELDRUM BAND". In late 2008 I formed my own band called CRUZANVIBES and who was there playing the steeldrums, no one but my father! His love and compassion for steeldrums music is very much alive with him mentally, but physically he had to retire; he played steeldrums for over 60 years and has now passed the torch on to my two younger brothers Harold and Michael who plays steeldrums for CRUZANVIBES today! Cruzanvibes band is diverse and very talented. Each member plays an instrument and most of them are vocalist as well; they range from Reggae to Calypso, Oldies to R&B, Funk to Motown, and much more! Anywhere Cruzanvibes performs; they "wow" the crowds and keep everyone on their feet dancing until the end; they are extremely passionate about their work!
