About the CD: Features nine of the most popular Christmas songs performed as you've never heard them before - on Caribbean Steel Drums coupled with conventional instruments such as the guitar, bass guitar, and drums - in a variety of musical styles such as Latin, Calypso, jazz, rock, and country. Guaranteed to be the most unusual - and very possibly the best - Christmas CD in your collection. Notes: The Tropical Flavor Band has been playing the East Coast and surrounding area for the past five years. The band is unique in that it blends the smooth island sound of the Caribbean steel drum with conventional instruments. Deborah, who plays lead steel drum says, "We call ourselves Tropical Flavor because we like to be whatever your taste calls for". Because the band is so diverse you'll find them playing for a wide spectrum of audiences â?? reggae, Calypso, and Latin for an international festival, beach and rock for a pool party, jazz at the country club, or classical music on the orchestra stage. The band has been called one of the most unusual and memorable musical experiences ever. Fans say, "You remind me of when I was in the islands on my honeymoon". Island Christmas is their first CD and was inspired by a dream â?? a dream that caused one ambitious band member to wake in the middle of the night with the idea of making a Christmas CD and the determination to outline the songs and the CD format into the wee hours of the morning. The songs listed here are the results of that idea come to fruition. If you like this CD, be sure to stay tuned for the album of original tunes coming soon!!!
