Our band is one of the most established steel drum bands for hire and has some of the best players, you will hear this when you compare us to the other bands. We enjoy performing and you can also expect a quality service.
We offer a rhythmic 5 player ensemble (image below) to hire for summer parties, birthday celebrations, marquee events, restaurants and hotels. Booking is easy, please send an inquiry via the contact page.
Our clients prefer the live sound of real musicians in preference to drum machines and backing tracks. This does increase the cost, but provides a level of quality and personality which connects with your guests.
Over 80% of bookings are covered by the 3 piece band because of the scale of the party or event. This option provides an uplifting and melodic repertoire as background music during a drinks party or wedding. For clients that hire the more vibrant 5 piece band, they will enjoy the benefit of 2 additional cylinders to power a highly tuned machine. Lots of reggae, lots of calypso and lots of fun if you are hosting a Hawaiian or Caribbean themed party.
Our players, equipment, presentation and performance are developed to impress the most discerning clients. As expectations of clients have risen, our entire operation has rebooted to meet those demands. The service is guaranteed and you can expect to have lots of fun with our band.
