We’re Solid Steel and we’re a modern professional UK-based steel band or ‘steel drum band’ as our American cousins mistakenly call it! We’re available for hire with musicians based mainly in London, but with contacts to associate steel pan players throughout the country.
Our Gallery shows that beyond the Solid Steel core we are a small family of musicians that spans 3 generations. We regard ourselves as good musicians above all else and most of us have a second instrument we also play at a professional level.
What also distinguishes us from other steel bands is that we can offer vocals and other instrumentation to play the diverse repertoire that you can see here in our playlist.

Hello, we have been trawling the Internet high and low for a band with a set list like yours. We are hugely into our rhythm and blues and soul, Etta James, Ray Charles and Otis Redding are a few of our favourites! We would love a quote to play from about 7.30pm until midnight, we are flexible to how you play. Also, we would love a brass set included. As you can imagine with most weddings we are on a budget so would love you to be as competitive as possible and we will keep your stomachs satisfied with authentic American soul food all night, and good company! Thanks so much, Rosie
Our wedding is based in Barnston in Essex and Paul and I are huge fans of 1950s and 60s soul and funk. We particularly love Etta James, Ray Charles and Otis Reading. We love the sound of the band and think you would be a fantastic addition to our day. We were just wondering if you had a more extensive set list including some more modern day tracks from 70s 90s 00s and today, just to have a well rounded option for our guest. Personally I could listen to soul and funk all night but I think our guests will also want something more mainstream unfortunately.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
We're looking at hosting a Mexican themed evening on Friday 26th August and are looking to hire a lively Mariachi band for an hour or 2 from 7/8pm. We are a bar/restaurant in Great Dunmow, Essex. Can you please give availability and quote for the event?
The Saracens Head Hotel
Hello, my partner and i are looking for a string quartet to perform at our wedding, for around 2-3 hours.
The wedding venue is creeksea place in Essex.
The ceremony will take place at the church across the road, where we would ideally like you to play whilst people would be being seated, then for the entrance & exit.
Then, everyone will walk over to the Manor House, where again we would like you to play in the gardens whilst everyone is enjoying a celebratory drink!
Thanks in advance
Our event is going to be held at the Saffron Hall which can hold up to 600 people. We are holding this event as part of our leisure studies a level course. We are interested in your Beatles tribute band to play at this event.
“Just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you so much for your wonderful set for our wedding. We had such a great evening and thought you guys were absolutely brilliant, even better then we had hoped. A few members of my family are musicians so we thought it might be a bit of a tough crowd but everyone was so complimentary about how good you were, and are still talking about what a fun evening it was- even the people who usually refuse to dance...”
I booked the band for my Wedding as a last minute replacement for an established band that let me down. They were in their infancy at that point so my expectations were low but boy did they deliver! The definitive party band. Will book again for my next wedding!
The band were fantastic ! In fact I have had so many people ask for your details. I am sure you will get a lot of calls after this event.
People enjoyed themselves so much that they wanted the music to go on all night ! The only ‘complaint’ I got was that the music wasn’t enough !! People did not realise the time that you played as they enjoyed it so much !!
Thank you so much for everything – I am hoping to make this an annual event so I hope we can work together again 🙂
Thank you to you and the whole troop ! You were all fantastic !
