Steel Pan Power are passionate about Caribbean music and have been playing for more than 25 years. Exciting, upbeat and entertaining, the band play everything from Caribbean calypso tunes and reggae to Latin styles such as merengue, soca and salsa!

The group have travelled far and wide, playing not just in the UK but in Germany, Spain and the Ukraine. And further afield, they’ve played in North and South America and of course the Caribbean.

They were fantastic on the day and got everyone up and dancing. We even had a conga line going at one point! Lindsay, Wedding at Huntstile Organic Farm, Bridgwater

Band members learned their craft playing in the Maestros Steel Orchestra in the mid-80s, this was one of the first steel bands in the UK and a regular feature of the Notting Hill Carnival. Since then, Steel Pan Power have played with or supported a number of other eminent steel bands including Pan Maestro, Sunjets, Steel & Strings, Tropikal Vizions, Caribbean Melody, and Sounds of Steel.

Steel pans have a warm, summery sound that’s great for any occasion, especially drinks receptions and outdoor events, and Steel Pan Power’s lively, sunny repertoire is just the thing to get that party started!

“Both agency and act were great. I received answers to all of my questions from the agency and then the act called me as promised and confirmed all the details. On the day there were no issues and the band were incredible. Highly recommend.”

Chloe, Wedding, Nortonbury Farmhouse in Hertfordshire, June 2019

“The Band was simply outstanding. Lovely to speak to and incredibly professional. Our guests absolutely loved their style and playlist variety, as did we. Please pass on our thanks to them once again for setting the tone for our event.”

Birmingham Black Lawyers, Black Tie Ball, Edgbaston Cricket Club in Birmingham, June 2019

“We hired Steel Pan Power for our wedding drinks reception. To begin with, the booking through Function Central was really straightforward. Signing contracts etc was very easy. We were contacted by lovely Sylvia from the band a week before who ran through the day with us. She was so lovely and very helpful. On the day, unfortunately we had some rain in the morning which meant they had to set up in doors. By the reception, the weather was good so most of guests were outdoors. We could still hear the band from outside and the sound was fantastic. Absolutely perfect background music for a reception. However, because they were indoors, we probably didn't get the most out of the band and I want to apologise to them for that as it was through no fault of their own. They were still absolutely fantastic. I would absolutely book them again as I love steel drums so much but next time make sure they are in centre view!! Thank you so much to Sylvia and the band.”

“From the initial contact to arrival on the day, they were professional and delivered a great performance. A couple of calls to confirm timing, arrived and set up on time, played 2 great sets. Many commented it was unusual for a wedding but worked really well as it was so warm and the venue had great outdoor space. Thanks. Highly recommended.”
