Kent Arnsbarger Steel drum artist

 La Porte, Indiana, USA

Solo steel drum artist with amazing sounding backup tracks. Small set up, big sound! Island Music at a high fidelity level.


Add that Island flare to your next party or event!! Kent Arnsbarger is a solo steel drum performer using an iPod to play VERY high quality backup tracks (all played & recorded by him) over a very compact Bose PA system. The sound files you hear on this page from his 6 CDs are the exact backup tracks he uses live, minus the pan. What you hear is what you get!

Kent has performed at many different venues from wedding receptions to corporate function to birthday parties to resorts. With minimal equipment, Kent delivers not only great room filling sound, but sophisticated LED lighting is always there when the venue requires a little something extra.

Kent has performed on television several times and has opened for the world famous Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. He also teaches percussion at 2 highsschools in Indiana and is a classically trained percussionist from Indiana University.


You can listen to all of my music on my website. I have 6 albums with over 60 tracks to choose from.
