Lawnparties at Cloister: Steel Drums

Sit back, relax, and enjoy some tropical tunes by Steel Drums, Cloister Inn’s spring Lawnparties act. Michael Carsley, the man behind Steel Drums, is a performer and artist based in Philadelphia, Pa., who performs everywhere from backyard parties to formal events. In addition to singing, Carsley specializes in playing double second steel pans.

According to Carsley Steel Entertainment, Carsley “creates an elegant mix of calypso, reggae, pop, and jazz.” With a performance degree from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Carsley has a soothing voice that transports his audience into a cozy, homelike atmosphere while simultaneously giving them a taste of something quite extraordinary.


Having received rave reviews from other events where he has performed, including weddings, private parties, and backyard gatherings, Carsley clearly charms his audience. Since his music is quite different from what many University students listen to on a day-to-day basis, expose yourself to a brand new experience this Sunday by stopping by Cloister to hear the sound of Steel Drums.
