On a tight budget? Holding a small event with very limited space? Ian Dobson offers a very affordable and adaptable solution that sounds great in any setting: from the smallest living room party to an outdoor stage with a large audience. Ian can bring joy, excitement, and a touch of sunshine to your event with his one-man steeldrum and world percussion show. Using high-quality, pre-recorded accompaniment that he has personally arranged, Ian can perform on steel drum, timbales, maracas, congas, vocals, and more. Other fascinating instruments from around the world, such as tabla, are available upon request. Ian’s solo act is ideal for background music, but has frequently been known to inspire joyous Caribbean dance.

Ian's solo act uses essentially the same arrangements as the Standard band, just with backing tracks playing all the band parts.

Please listen to the music samples listed on the Standard Page to get an idea of the sound. Also, listen to the examples below to get an idea of how the pre-recorded accompaniment sounds.
