When my dad got sick, he made it a point to take family trips on my school vacations. We went to Alaska and various islands in the Bahamas in the few short years we had. While we were there, I really fell in love with the steel drum players and bands you would see everywhere. I guess that’s why when I found this for $3.99 in a Boston record store (well Cambridge, but they’re rude so no name), I couldn’t help myself.
I really couldn’t find any information on the group though! I just love listening to this album, it takes you away! Do you know anything about this album or band? Please let me know in the comments! I would absolutely love it. I recently bought some more steel drum albums so be on the look out for those too!!

Also, as some of you followers may know, I’m also doing something insane. For those of you just popping by for the first time, I’m rappelling down 22 stories of the Hyatt in Boston, MA to raise money and awareness for the Special Olympics. I really need some help raising money in order to rappel, as my minimum is $1000.00 raised. Wouldn’t it be awesome to double that amount for the Special Olympics?
