A strolling & serenading steel band for hire
What’s more is our steel band offers great versatility when we stroll with the drums around our necks. To illustrate, we can weave our way through crowds and audiences providing the close-up experience that only mix and mingle entertainers can match whilst creating a carnival atmosphere. Consequently, there is naturally more interaction with our audience, who may choose to form a conga line but are just as likely to start to dance or even start to limbo! So, generally speaking, our band can be even more entertaining.
Our steel band has a lot of experience also of strolling as a trio in a small indoor environment like a restaurant and serenading diners- Mariachi-style. Because Solid Steel can sing as well as play we’re an even more suitable alternative to booking a Mariachi band than other strolling steel bands. We can therefore serenade people dining- moving from table to table playing and singing lilting Caribbean ballads such as ‘Yellow Bird’ and ‘Island In The Sun’, as a result. On account of this, we once gave this more intimate style of performance 6 nights a week for 3 months around the tables of the Tiki-style restaurant at the famous Sporting Club in Monte Carlo.
Moreover, street performances really look ‘street’ when a steel band is strolling or parading outside at street level. In other words, it looks like the authentic mix and mingle performance of street buskers and is ideal for high street performances to shoppers. In light of that, we often play sets at sporting events which rotate with those of a traditional jazz band.
