Caribbean: The One Steel Band | UK

The One Steel Band is a Manchester based steel band, whose players between them have over 40 years of experience playing the pan. Specialists in weddings, Caribbean evenings, and formal and informal functions, The One Steel Band have played all over the country, even venturing as far as Paris, and Barcelona.

Although the bands repertoire includes all the well-known traditional islands songs, they also play a mixture of salsa, and bossa nova.The music is arranged in an innovative style, but without losing the classic steel pan sound, with jazzy chords and improvisations adding spice to all songs.

Standard Length of Performance:

The One Steel Band can perform up to 3 x 45min slots. However, they are flexible on their set times.


”The guys were absolutely fantastic, my parents were delighted with the surprise and everyone has commented on how the steel band added to the party atmosphere of the occasion. My only regret is that I didnt think before hand to get some lessons from the band before the day to play a tune for our family and friends…. that would have been an amazing surprise for everyone!! Ill have to do that next time!”
