Tropical Heatwave is a unique music ensemble made up of highly skilled artists from across the Caribbean region.

Tropical Heatwave is available in various combinations to fit most budgets and venues and represents some of the finest Caribbean entertainment available in the UK.

Caribbean party band- 3,4,5 or 6 piece. The bands speciality! This will transport you musically across the Caribbean and back in one night in one show. The type of quality group that audiences would party to at any of the top hotels and venues. They play a steamy mix of dance hall Soca (the party jam that gets the audience to do the popular carnival dances led by the band), plus Calypso hits; Samba, Bossa Nova, Rumba, Merengue, some funky Reggae plus a spoonful of Salsa and a sprinkling of Caribbean Jazz, all topped with vocals and harmonies.

Acoustic all steelpan- 3 or 4 piece. Ideal for non intrusive/background music, which will “magic carpet” an audience away to the palm fringed shores of an exotic Caribbean idyll. Although there are no vocals, the band produces the authentic sounds of “sweet pan” from a bunch of genuinely nice guys with a lot of experience in pan. With repertoire ranging from Caribbean standards and saucy Calypso, to Merengue and Samba to hot’n’spicy Rumba, this is the perfect accompaniment to any intimate soiree.


Limbo dancing – Tropical Heatwave can also provide their own Limbo poles! Audience participation means that this is guaranteed to get the timid and the bold on to the dance floor for some fun-filled Limbo dancing!!!

Tropical Heatwave is fully self-contained with adequate PA, mic’s, stage lighting pack, Caribbean backdrops and other decorations to “tropicalise” the stage area. The line-up includes steelpans, bass, keyboards, percussion (congas, bongos, djembe) and assorted shakers which are handed out among the audience with an invitation to “join the band”.

The Prince and Princess of Wales invited Tropical Heatwave to Kensington Palace where they received a commendation as ambassadors for Caribbean music.
