Real Steel really set the mood for our party perfectly. The music they played was enjoyed by everyone and did not intrude on conversation. Faye, Private party in Liverpool

A unique and versatile act, The Real Steel Band have played all over the world for huge clients such as Sky TV, Cadbury and Nokia.

The band’s most popular line-up is a trio, but they can provide up to 3 additional steel players for extra impact. Since they don’t require power, the band is ideally suited to garden parties or outdoor receptions.

Highly recommended!
