Biography

Growing up in South Florida, the melting pot of the Caribbean, Bob Lyons fell in love with the sound of steel drums, calypso, reggae, salsa, and all the styles and flavors of the islands. Starting in the 1970's Bob played bass in local jazz, blues, reggae, and steel bands, eventually working his way to the front of the stage as the lead steel drum player. These days, while keeping a busy ... Read more in Amazon's Bob Lyons Store

WOW, you will enjoy every bit of this album. The beat and sounds really make you feel like your on the islands sipping a cool one. The songs seem to float from one to another and the beat keeps on going. If you want this kind of music this is the only album you will need! Bob did a outstanding job with this album and you will love it too.

If you're in a place where you need to either sit still or avoid having a silly grin on your face then this is definitely NOT the CD for you to be listening to!! BUT if you want to enter a realm of sonic jubilation and feel the imaginary ocean breeze fluttering your hair (even in the mid-west) then give it a spin. I really like the way each tune on this CD stays faithful to the original context and has its own groove even within a calypso framework. Also, the variety is great--there is something for everyone from early Beatles fans to Disney kids and bossa-jazz lovers.

My husband and I play this CD over and over and never get tired of it. It is so relaxing and fun and really makes you feel like you are in the tropics!! The song choices are fun as well. We like it so much we bought his Bob Marley tribute CD also - and we love that one, too!! GREAT music and creates the exact mood we were hoping for!

I am coordinating a wedding where the Bride is Guyanese and the Groom a Trinidadian. Now, Trinidad is the home of steelpan and I have been scoring the internet for the last six months to find recorded traditional wedding music in steelpan. I almost gave up with the wedding one week away, but decided to try youtube. Bingo.

I sat mesmerized for a long time (about two hours), listening to Bob Lyons pieces over and over again, before I realized I could own the album. Then the icing on the cake came when I found out it was also available in MP3 format.

Now I can have a true Caribbean wedding next week and you can buy this album and be mesmerized immediately.

Get out the tiki torches, get out the tequila, and put your dancing shoes on! If you really want to throw a great summer party, luau, barbeque, etc., this is the music to play! I just got his music, and can not WAIT for the 4th of July this weekend! It will be a steel drum day and night!
Bob is the MASTER of steel! With every song, from Under the Sea (which the kids love to dance to), to Satchmo's Wonderful World, and to the upbeat Don't Worry, Be Happy, Bob does an awesome job of bringing the Caribbean to your back yard.
So get his music, crank the stereo, and grab a Corona! Summer is here, but not complete until you party the Bob Lyons way!

First discovered this artist in Youtube playing the reggae-version of Pachelbel's Reggae Canon.
It blew me away!

Then I heard other pan offerings by Bob Lyons. It's the best(in my opinion) interpretation of pan of well known tunes from Bob Marley, Jason Marz, as well as your pan stardards like Yellow Bird, and Jamaica Farewell/Island Under the Sun. So I downloaded all from Amazon, and love them!

As an aspiring novice pan-player, Bob Lyons really inspired me to pick up my pan again.
Please come out with an Xmas compilation!
Thanks Bob!

Bob Lyon creates an awesome steel drum island experience with this music. It is worth every penny. Me being in Florida and near the water, it is a must have for Floridians or anyone! You must buy this album. It gives you this relaxing island feel, like you want to stretch out on to a lounge chair with a cold drink and relax. Trust me, you won't be disappointed with this purchase!

I was really hoping for a steel drum CD that didn't sound like it was right off of a cruise ship... but it does. I didn't pay much attention to the names of the songs on the CD and more on the reviews, if I had checked out the song names, I would've seen that they are all your typical "Caribbean cruise ship" songs. Oh well, not horrible but not at all what I was looking for.... the real deal, steel drums we would hear local bands playing when in the Caribbean. I'll pay better attention next time.
