""Sunny Steel band played at our wedding in August - all our guests were blown away and they really bought something special to the day! Would highly recommend them.""



, July 8, 2017

""Because we were short of money we only had one player, but he was very good and created a great atmosphere for the party. Thomas looked the part in his lovely flowery shirt, played some lively music and was fantastic at interacting with the children (and also grown ups!) who wanted to have a go and learn how to make music. He was happy to fit in with the timings we needed, was very professional throughout and made our Caribbean Party a great success - we were very pleased that we'd found The Sunny Steel Band!""

""I have booked Sunny Steel band for two of our coprorate events and they have been professional, upbeat and commited. One event was our family funday which was an outdoor event and it poured with rain in the afternoon and the steel pan musicians "played on" and brightened everyones mood. I have a memory of the drummer playing with drips running down his back (despite the gazebo roof covering the rain was too heavy) while they valiantly played on to add some energy to the awards ceremony. I really appreciated this as the event was loosing its sparkle with the rain and they kept going without a fuss till the last moment and it really helped. Their manager Thomas is always courteous and professional to deal with as well as an excellent musician himself. Book them for the next time you need to get a party started and energise the crowd!""

Couldn't give a higher recommendation.""

Will the band be too loud?
No. This is a common misconception as Steel Drums can be played at (almost) any volume by skilled players.

My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
Yes.
Does the Steel Band require shade?
Yes (if required to play outdoors). Steel Drums (and humans) heat up very quickly in direct sunlight which in turn puts the instruments out of tune due to the metal expanding. A shaded area must be provided by the venue at the client's request. Alternatively we can provide cover at an additional fee of £55.
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
We can offer ::: £35 - Small wireless speaker (Bose Soundlink) to play a suitably tropical playlist during breaks (over a max 2 hour band booking) ::: £100 - Larger PA speaker to play a suitably tropical playlist during breaks (over a max 2 hour band booking) ::: £100 per hour - Larger PA speaker to play music of your choice after band booking
Can the Steel Drums be moved?
Yes, but sufficient time to pack down, travel and set up again must be factored in. Distances of more than 50 meters and/or negotiating stairs with the instruments must be factored in also at booking enquiry stage.
Would the band like refreshments?
Yes please!
Is the band DBS checked?
Yes
Can the band play Yellow Bird? Island In The Sun? Under The Sea?
Yes
Will the band be able to find us?
Yes. We use the latest Sat-Nav technology and will check up on venue access prior to the booking.
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
Playing times and breaks can all be arranged during the booking enquiry process.
How much space do you require?
A clear space measuring 3m x 3m as a minimum is a good guide for a performance area. Setup can take as little as 15 minutes for a band with good access to the performance area
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
Yes
How long do you play for?
Playing time can be adjusted to suit but the majority of our clients to date require a band\soloist over a two hour period.
How can event planners pay for your services?
We usually require a minimum non-refundable 30% deposit to reserve the event date with the remaining balance to be settled up no later than 30 days prior to event date.
What kind of events do you usually serve?
Weddings - BBQ's - Garden Parties - Sports Events - Private Events - Festivals - Expos - Trade Shows - Birthday parties - Bar Mitzvahs - Corporate events - Champagne Receptions - Cruises - Schools - Workshops - Tours - Fun Days - TV - Radio - Recording - Street Parties - Charity Events
