Ebony Steel Band can perform at any sort of function, large or small, indoor or outdoor. We don’t need a PA or any special facilities – we just turn up and play.

The Ebony Steel Band members are professional steel pan musicians with a minimum of 5 years experience and they play the best in calypso, reggae, and popular music.

We usually perform 4 x 30-minute sets or 2 x 45-minute sets within 4 hours.

Prices/Rates are negotiable depending on location. We are available for hire throughout the year. Please feel free to contact us to discuss your requirements.


Learn to Play Steel pan

Ebony offers regular workshops in learning how to play the steel pan (also known as steel drums). See our workshop timetable and choose the session to best suit your requirements.

We highly recommend coming along to a workshop, and you are welcome to attend one of our performances, as this is a fun way to get to know steel pan and the Ebony family.
