Yorkshire Entertainment Agency

Caribbean Steel Band Music for hire for Yorkshire, Lancashire and Lincolnshire Events
Live Entertainment that is perfect for a Wedding, Charity Ball, Conference, Private Parties and Corporate Company Functions.


This delicious tropical music developed around WWII on the Southern Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago. Classic steel band music features a variety of sizes of steel drum from lead pans (melody), mid-size pans (chords and harmony), and bass pans (a very large 55 gallon steel drum). Percussion can be added using congas, bongos, timbales, cowbells, shakers and drums. The extended Caribbean band is better for large dances and up-tempo affairs such as an evening wedding party or Caribbean theme entertainment. Modern more economical and easier to transport, a smaller group can consist of 2 or 3 steel drum players who also use keyboards for chords, bass and percussion parts. Modern electronics have created very high quality instrumental sounds that are nearly unmistakable for the real steel band instruments. The big advantage, is that you do not need the large "bass pans" that require trucks to move them about! A smaller band is appropriate for events that require a Caribbean "atmosphere", such as a wedding or corporate event.

Below we have listed a selection of our fabulous live steel bands for hire playing infectious caribbean music.
