What does a Steel Drum Band Actually Do?

A steel drum band performs music on instruments known as steel drums, or steel pans.  Playing as a band, these musicians are very talented in getting the right sound for many genres of music which can either sound very chilled, or upbeat.

How long will a Steel Drum Band perform for?

Each of our Steel Drum Bands will have their own set times, so we highly recommend contacting your chosen entertainer to get a more accurate performance length.  Many Steel Drum Bands are happy to perform for a couple of hours with breaks in-between.

How much does a Steel Drum Band cost?

Again, each Steel Drum Band will have different fees, so it is worth checking with them before you book.  Certain factors may increase their cost of hire, such as during the peak summer season and how far they need to travel to your venue.
