The London Steel Band - Steel Band

This modern and professional UK based steel band are available for hire with musicians based mainly in London, but with contacts to associate steel pan players throughout the country. They are a small family of musicians that spans 3 generations who all play at a professional level.

What also distinguishes them from other steel bands is that they can offer vocals and other instrumentation to play the diverse repertoire that you will see in the song list.

The band leader's father led one of the UK's first steel bands in the 1950's 20 years after the instruments were ‘invented’ in Trinidad.

There was no such thing as an all-acoustic 3-piece steel band even in Trinidad back then (with each band member exclusively playing a steel drum) and it hasn’t emerged anywhere else other than in Britain since either.
