Tropical Music Productions began providing Steel Drum and tropical music to the New York area in 1986. Now in its 28th year (!) it has achieved the "first-call-in-NYC" status for entertainment at many Fortune 500 corporate events, and for the most selective of private engagements. A quick look at the selected "Performance and Recording" highlights for the Tropical Music Productions band THE CARIBBEAN CRUISERS illustrates how this group stands in a class all it’s own.

From Manhattan to Morocco - with tv appearances, recording sessions and educational programs in between - Tropical Music Productions is unparalleled. The beautiful natural, wooden sound of Marimba Man’s marimba complements the steel drum, adding a beach-y vibe to the band to make it even more unique. The marimba is chic, unusual, and always admired by kids and elders alike. Marimba Man will give your party that unique touch your guests will speak of, and remember, for years to come. Plus, the four mallets flying about are fun to watch!

Caribbean repertoire includes Calypso, Soca, Reggae and other styles, with or without vocals. As you can see and hear at this site, American dance music is also well-represented in the songlist. Instrumentation is flexible, from a small instrumental ensemble up to ten pieces with several lead vocalists and large-scale sound/lighting.

Tropical Music Productions was founded by Percussionist/Composer/ Educator Arthur Lipner, who still performs with the band on occasion. A recording artist of international renown, the addition of his marimba adds a uniquely energetic and tropical flavor to the group.

Tropical Music Productions has been providing music for the most discerning of clients since 1986. The Caribbean Cruisers perform at about 150 Special Events per year, mostly in the tri-state area but also out-of-town and overseas. In our 28 years we have entertained presidents, dignitaries, celebrities and the largest of corporations at the most famous venues in NYC. We strive to work closely with our clients to assure that our audiences can take full advantage of what we have to offer, and that our appearance at your event is something we can be proud of.

Band size can be from 2-10 pieces. Small groups of 2-3 pieces including steel drums offer an instrumentation perfect for background or atmosphere. As more instruments are added, more repertoire and energy can be created. Marimba Man Arthur Lipner’s marimba, when available, will add a touch of virtuosity and class to make your event even more memorable.
