Act Profile

Steel Drum Band - North

Steel Drum Band - North is a Northern Based set up, whose players between them have over 50 years of experience playing the pan.

Specialists in Weddings, Caribbean evenings, and formal and informal functions, this band have played all over the world, performing for some of the largest corporations such as Nokia and Cadbury.

Although the band's repertoire includes all the well known traditional island songs, they also play a mixture of Latin/salsa, plenty of recognisable Pop songs, and even Christmas carols where appropriate.

The music is arranged in an innovative style but without losing the classic steel pan sound, with jazzy chords and improvisations adding spice throughout.

Testimonials

Sandra Milton (now Sandra Youngson)
The guys were absolutely fantastic, my parents were delighted with the surprise and everyone has commented on how the steel band added to the party atmosphere of the occasion. My only regret is that I didn't think before hand to get some lessons from the band before the day to play a tune for our family and friends.... that would have been an amazing surprise for everyone!! I'll have to do that next time! It was also a pleasure to deal with you, you were very helpful with the booking. If you ever need a reference for you or the guys I'd be happy to provide one for future clients.

Raul Martez - Barcelona
Good image and presented good also. Thank you very much to travel so far, and it was surely worth it. The people liked the Caribbean music, and the atmosphere it carried.

Lucas, London
A refreshing change to our usual entertainment. The music changed totally the dynamic of our christmas party.

Katie, Manchester
The band were professional, we even had a few hiccups (which weren't their fault), but they did everything to resolve the situation, and it ended up a perfect evening.
