Steel Band

Steel Band

This steel band was born into this less than tropical climate back in 1986, and promptly achieved nationwide popularity. They travel all over the country, and indeed abroad, playing to audiences at events with (or without!) a tropical theme like Caribbean nights, private parties, wedding receptions, corporate events, product and project launches etc. in venues as diverse as hotels, festivals, schools, tv and radio studios, village halls, shopping centres, pubs and restaurants. In so doing, they make it their business for their steel band to transport your imagination to the most idyllic sun and rum-soaked Caribbean holiday you have ever or never had!

They’re in high demand as an acoustic (unplugged!) steel band and particularly as a trio. Why so popular? Well one reason is that the format itself is so very natural, organic and beautifully undated. It has a timeless quality only other acoustic groups like string quartets can aspire to. The other reason is that they use the best musicians playing the highest quality of steel band instruments to achieve the best sound. They then choose suitably melodic material such as traditional calypsos and Caribbean folk music with Latin and popular ‘standards’ fleshing out our repertoire.

They’re not just a steel band that gets busy in the summer. As a professional band they perform all year round. In the summer they are naturally very busy with weddings, company barbecues and other events where the ‘sunshine’ sound of steel bands has long been considered as almost mandatory by UK bookers such as wedding co-ordinators, corporate entertainment organisers, conference entertainment organisers and party planners. They also get a lot of interest in their steel band performing in the Black History month of October.

And, of course, in December they’re very busy with Christmas parties and Christmas Carol concerts. So all in all they are not just for summer, but for events all year round. They are a perfect choice for light entertainment for any event.
