    Steelpan drummer??

    Does anyone know how I can get in contact with a couple of the steelpan drummers on the island besides going through a planner?

    All I know is that our guy's name was Tico. I don't know how to contact him outside of the Marriott but he was fantastic! I was a little concerned about using the steel pan because sometimes they can be a little too sharp and tinny and 'in your face', but he played beautiful. His music was the perfect compliment for our day. He played both the wedding and the cocktail hour.

    In case I have Tico's name wrong, here is a picture of him in case someone on here can put you in touch with him. Having him playing was the perfect way to greet our guests. And can't you tell just by the picture that this is a pretty cool guy!?

    And while this isn't really relevant to this thread, since I'm doing a vendor 'shout out', here is also a picture of our bartender, Duffy. (I hope that's the right spelling - I've seen it spelled more than one way.) You can just see that this guy knows how to get your party going. =)

    I did just go through my old emails and found a playlist for our Tico (Tico Kock). The top line reads: "Tico Steel Pan Songs - A Touch of Steel N.V." Maybe "A Touch of Steel" is his business? Band name? CD Title?

    Tico Kock

    I remember a Tico Kock that worked for the Aruba Tourism Authority. Does anyone remember him from the ATA?
