For twenty years we have transported audiences to idyllic sun and rum-soaked Caribbean shores at Caribbean nights, birthday parties, weddings, indoor and outdoor corporate events, product launches, sporting events, Christmas parties and carnival parades, at hotels, festivals, schools, tv and radio studios, village halls, shopping centres, pubs and restaurants.

Sound of Sunshine

In the summer we’re very busy with weddings, company barbecues and other outdoors events. We do get asked to perform with very little notice and are often able to oblige, but we suggest clients book as early as possible.

Solid Steel's Dave, Tom and Paul | Steel Drum Band For Hire | Live Music | Corporate Events | 2016

Solid Steel Trio

Christmas Party Band

October is Black History month and our fully-trained teachers can provide workshops in schools, colleges and universities.

During the Halloween / Guy Fawkes Bonfire / Diwali season we get to demonstrate that we can produce performances outside in cold weather, raising the spirits.

We have an album of exclusively Christmas favourites, and have a repertoire of Christmas Carols and songs.

Foreign Tours

Over the years the band has played extensively in Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East, including Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Belgium, Capri, Djibouti, Dubai, France, Germany, Gran Canaria, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Monaco, Poland, Qatar, Russia, Spain, Syria, Tenerife and Tunisia.

We love travelling and will discount our regular domestic rates to compensate for foreign clients’ expenses.

Corporate Events

Being ‘unplugged’ and acoustic make us very quick to set up, as well as highly mobile and interactive. As a result we have performed for some of the biggest companies in the world.

We are highly professional and appreciate the importance of corporate hospitality and brand promotion. As a band of no small reputation we take our responsibilities very seriously and always do our best to meet our clients’ requirements.

The City of London Steel Band

Metro Bank used us to promote the opening of six of their branches and Lloyds bank engaged us within their foyer.

The sensitivity of our musicianship allowed us to be successful at both events.

Company Fun Days

Although we regularly play at Christmas parties, we play for even more company fun days. Our mobility and interactive style allows us to get in amongst our audience. We also operate workshops for both adults and children and our extensive teaching and teambuilding experience really help to make these a success.

  • Great Expectations Events Ltd

    Thank you so much for yesterday, your band was great and the feedback so far is that everyone loved the music.
    It really added to the atmosphere with us pumping the sound around the cricket pitch.

    They usually sit around in silence watching the cricket so we certainly put a twist on the way they enjoyed the day.

    Look forward to working with you again soon.

    Best wishes,
    Jason Noah

  • Pocklington Trust Housing Assoc.

    We would like to thank you and your steel band musicians for a wonderful performance yesterday at the Court.

    We will definitely be booking you for any future events.
    Thanks again.

    I just wanted to say thanks to you and the steel band for your professional performance last week, It was a really good night and the music played a huge part in making it such a success! The limbo was a particular highlight for me.

  • UK Royal Artillery Barracks

    Please could you pass on my thanks to the whole band who were absolutely superb on Saturday.  For many it was the highlight of the evening and brought back memories of their service for the UK in the Caribbean. My only regret is that I couldn't spend more time listening and dancing but I'm sure there will be plenty of other opportunities. I hope you enjoyed yourselves too and that you'll come back next time to entertain us.

    Once again, thank you for making the evening one to remember for all the guests.
