Steel Band City - Caribbean Steel Band
Steel Band City - Caribbean Steel Band
Steel Band City is a Manchester Based set up, whose players between them have over 50 years of experience playing the pan.
Specialists in Weddings, Caribbean evenings, and formal and informal functions, this band have played all over the country, even venturing as far as Paris and Barcelona. Although the band’s repertoire includes all the well known traditional islands songs, they also play a mixture of Latin and Pop music.
The music is arranged in an innovative style but without losing the classic steel pan sound, with jazzy chords and improvisations adding spice throughout.

5 star band! - They dressed accordingly (Caribbean themed charity ball) and were willing to assist in whatever way necessary to ensure the ball went with a swing! Great musicians and great, personable guys. Would recommend!
Steel Band City were perfect for our almost rained off BBQ. They lifted the mood and were very nice people.
The boys were fantastic! Everyone raved about them the next day. They were so accommodating and fun, playing longer than they needed to as a friend arrived late. We cannot recommend them highly enough! Thank you, Frances, Robert and Nigel!
The band were lovely and very friendly. They arrived early and played throughout our event and even did requests! A great experience.
Thanks! Great night with Steel Band City.
First class band, great guys.
The band were marvelous and very professional. Because of the terrible weather we had to abandon the garden and the stage we had erected and squeeze the band into the conservatory but they still provided a marvelous couple of sets and helped make the party a hugely enjoyable experience despite the ravages of the English weather. Thank you all.
Warble Entertainment were easily contactable, they were very efficient in every stage of the process. Then Steel Band City phoned a couple of days before the event to make contact, they were really flexible with slightly altering their starting time and what songs etc we wanted. The music was fantastic (even just with one man) and really enjoyable! We had Steel Band City as the introduction act at a party, everyone really enjoyed it. I would highly recommend.
The guys were absolutely great and created a really good atmosphere. Everyone was commenting on how good they were so I feel vindicated in having booked them. I would most definitely recommend them.
Arrived in plenty of time, very friendly and played some lovely music. Just what we wanted.
Fantastic, the band really were amazing, so glad we booked them!

Q: How big is the band?
A: In total there are 9 players, but we rarely go out as more than a trio
Q: How many players do I need?
A: As a general rule, 3 is the magic number. It's our most versatile set up. If your venue is expecially large, or is there will be more than 200 - 250 people in attendance, why not speak to Warble to find out if you may need a PA. We are available as a duo and as a soloist with backing tracks for events with tighter budgets. Ask Warble for advice.
Q: Can we request a tune for you to learn and can you play happy birthday or here comes the bride?
A: Yes we can
Q: Is it good to offer food and drink to the band?
A: Why yes, it is :-)
- 2 x 45 minutes OR 2 hours
- Playing time is not equal to time on site, and you can arrange the band performance over a 3 hour period
