I am extremely grateful for all of the good fortune I have had over my career. I have been fortunate to play music for a variety of people all over the world. In my career as a professional musician, I can’t remember the last time that I had 6 gigs in 3 days. And all of the gigs were solo steel drum gigs. Like I said, I am grateful, but I also don’t want to see my steel drum for the next couple of days. Here are some photos from the weekend. Island Hoppin’ Steel Drum Band was featured at the Marriott Newport Coast Villas, The Old Ranch Country Club, a private residence in Escondido, Aspens Village Apartments and the Lido Pool at the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach.
