Andy “Max” Neils is an accomplished and outstanding steelpan tuner whose talents are sought after all over the world, and currently the resident tuner for Trinidad & Tobago’s National Steel Symphony.
In addition, Neils is a throwback to an era where a select set of tuners wore multiple hats. He is a steelpan musician, builder & tuner and even one-time arranger, or ‘triple threat’ as Neils happily describes himself.
