Bermuda Blue is a Calypso steel drum trio that performs primarily at private events. Influenced by dozens of Caribbean groups from the 1950s – 70s, Bermuda Blue performs traditional Calypso songs along with selections of American music and their own compositions.
Performing since 1989, this ensemble is a combination of three players playing steel drum, acoustic guitar, vocals and shakers or other Caribbean instruments. The trio is perfect for a Caribbean or beach inspired event that would benefit from low key background music. This combination also works well for a wedding rehearsal dinner or cocktail hour.
