Feeling a bit camera shy


Alvin Rostant hails from the Caribbean Island of Trinidad so you know the music and delivery is authentic. And absolutely first class. Alvin was front man (lead singer/panist) for The Cavaliers touring non stop for 4 years the world over. Plying his unique craft in Australia has afforded him all the best venues and major festivals including Expo 88, Sydney Opera House, Woodford and countless others.His teachings of the steel drum have taken to the remotest parts of Australis allowing him to follow his dream to give back to the country he has adopted as home and his original homeland. Alvin loves to see the steel drum change lives just as it changed his.

Alvins' music influences are an eclectic bunch including all "The Legends" from the Caribbean Islands Harry Belafonte, Daddy Cool to "Mr Dread" himself Bob Marley plus classic RnB artists The Beetles, Van Morrison to cool grooves from Sade, Prince..
it doesn't matter what genre it must come from the heart.

Jahbutu D'band allows Alvin to gather around him the best hand picked musicians for the job. This flexibilty gives Alvin an edge to
give the client just what they want, dance Trini Carnival style, "meet n greet" easy listening, lounge sounds, roving steel bands, acoustc or plugged, solo creamy dream steel N' vocals, the options and combinations are endless.One of Alvins best trade marks is his ability to read the crowd, especially the big festival crowds. They never leave dissapointed! Guaranteed!
