About Nostalgia Steel Band
The Nostalgia Steel Band is one of the country’s finest and longest-established steel bands tracing its roots right back to 1951 when its founder (who retired in 2004) played in a specially commissioned steel band at the Festival of Britain. The current band operates as a not for-profit organisation, ploughing its profits back into its community work.
Unusually, this band can play on the move as it can use pans worn around the musicians’ necks as well as pans on stands. This can help the band’s interaction with the audience and also enable it to move around an outside or indoor venue.
As well as regularly appearing at the Notting Hill Carnival, the band have played at the Lord Mayor’s Show and appeared on national television and radio. They have also performed at hundreds of weddings, parties and events and take pride in their punctuality, reliability and musicianship.
With a wide repertoire of pop songs and calypsos, this band can provide both background music and music for dancing, ideal for receptions and parties. The band’s infectious enthusiasm also helps it appeal to guests of all ages.
The band can perform from a trio upwards. Our quoted price is for a trio and playing time is 90 minutes with one or two short breaks.
