Caribbean Steel

Caribbean Steel

Nico G. was born in New York City and has been playing some kind of drum set since he was 9 years old. His passion led him to study world music including Afro-Cuban percussion, folkloric and popular rhythms, as well as Brazilian and West African styles of drumming. He studied percussion with Regino Jimenez, Michael Spiro, Mark Lamson, Poncho Sanchez and Francisco Aguabella. Nico currently performs all over Atlanta in his all steel drum band, Caribbean Steel, and has performed in Las Vegas and San Diego at notable venues such as Trader Vics, Planet Hollywood, The Flamingo, Tropicana Las Vegas, The Golden Nugget, The Mirage, Mandalay Bay and many more. Nico brings the sweet sounds of the steel drum – from reggae to soca, calypso and pop – to set the perfect tone for any occasion. See Caribbean Steel perform every Thursday from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. at various gates throughout Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
