That Be Eustis, Mon !

Photo by Sherri Adriano
Eustis can be found on Cathedral Street facing the Plaza playing his steel drum. Hailing from Trinidad. (where the steel drum originated) he has an enormous repertoire from Amazing Grace to Ole Morgan's Mama,Scratch It! . He is a master maker of custom steel drums and a student of Life. We warn you.............Do not discuss politics or religion with Eustis! He will try to weave those subjects in to the talk ("O de traffic Mon ! It is the proletariat corruption dat is de cause. I'm telling you de absolute troot! !"), but keep away. If you like his music drop in a donation. "Don't call me no panhandler Mon! An Artist I am wit a capital A" ! Yes, he is most definitely.
