Steel Drums & Rum Caribbean Night at the JollyMon in San Felipe

On August 15, 2009, there will be an event like nothing San Felipe has ever seen. Under the promotions of VIP Earth Events out of Las Vegas, Nevada, and sponsored by Mexico Living, Island Rhythms Production will be performing at the JollyMon Bar, 7 p.m., in north San Felipe.

Island Rhythms Production has traveled and toured through 16 countries and features musicians from the Caribbean Isles. The founder of the group, Noel Lawrence, is son of Raymond Lawrence. Ray and his two brothers, Gerald Lawrence and the late Kenneth Lawrence, were all original Trinidad Steel Drum Band members. They began touring various parts of the world back in 1958 beginning in South America. They were the first known steel drum band in the United States back in 1960. Authentic Caribbean sounds inspired by years of experience will fill the night at the JollyMon, with drink specials and appetizers themed for the event.

The band has also played at many famous attractions in the United States, including Disneyland, Universal Studios, Magic Mountain and Sea World, as well as on cruises all over the world. With unique style, the bands' repertoire includes: Soca, Calypso, Salsa, Rhythm and Blues, Country Western, Rock and Roll, Classical and Jazz music. But this night? It’s all Caribbean Steel Drums!
