The CalypsoNuts – Entertainment Without a Net

For years, people have begged for entertainment- not just music, but entertainment. Since 1998, The CalypsoNuts have delivered just that. Audiences from Key West to Put-In Bay, and all along the Caribbean itineraries, have been delighted by the duo with the island twist.

“Sure it’s steel drums,” says Robbie Meade, “but we look at them a little differently. We take the drums where we want them to go instead of allowing the drums to force our musical hand.”

Sponsored by Corona Extra, Corona Light, and Kokomo Island Traders, The CalypsoNuts are more than just a steel drum act. The “Entertainment Without a Net” approach guarantees that each show is custom tailored to fit the event. With no shows identical, The CalypsoNuts have the freedom and flexibility to switch gears in the middle of the show and take the audience in a new direction and to a completely different mood.

The nightly menu consists of Pop and Rock, Reggae and Soca, Acoustic and Electric; all different, but all the perfect ingredients to a great bowl of musical gumbo.

“So, pack your bags and let The Nuts’ music take you to your favorite island”

Mike Lindsay, past President
Washington Area Parrothead Club

At 11 years, The CalypsoNuts are the longest running act at “The Meeting of the Minds”, the week-long National Parrot Head Convention held every November in Key West, Florida. As of March 2009, The Nuts are now Musical Alumni of the Atlanta Parrot Head cruise, a 7 night, annual caribbean cruise to benefit cancer research.

In 2008 and 2009, 4 contracts with Disney Cruise Lines were packed with shows that were said to have raised the bar for any subsequent duos that sail with them. Meade says, “More than a just feather in our caps, the time spent with Disney taught us the important lessons of how to “Do it right…every time!”

The CalypsoNuts CDs “Six More Weeks” and “No Lifeguard on Duty” and rare live shows receive regular air play on Radio Margaritaville and several other internet and sattelitte radio stations. Numerous local and regional “Best of” awards further confirm The CalypsoNuts’ ability to take you to the sunshine of the islands no matter what the weather is like outside. Fondly known as The ‘Nuts by friends and clients, these two entertainers have a way of making the whole crowd feel special and connected to the event.

“Robbie and Lynley are superb entertainers. Fun, talented, wacky and a taste of the islands – they’ve got it all.”
Cindy Ely
President, Parrothead Club of Richmond
