One Island 

Steel Band

The One Island Steel Band are the UK’s premier authentic professional steel band. We are as at home adding a touch of class and sophistication to a champagne reception as we are adding the summer sunshine feeling to an otherwise muddy festival. The One Island Steel Band draw influence from not one, but many Islands’ cultures and traditions including Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad, St Kitts and others. Our members are equally as diverse, some having travelled here recently while others have had the tradition passed down through many generations.

More Information

We have played at just about every kind of event you can imagine including: Weddings We are asked to play before and after wedding ceremony and sometimes during the ceremony. In the background whilst pictures are being taken or during canapés and champagne. Corporate and Networking Events We can provide quiet background music for entertaining your clients or a full party setup for staff parties. Our long history of supplying the corporate sector means we can add a level of professionalism that others can’t. Birthday / Other Private Parties For evening events we provide an excellent mix of laid back music whilst guests arrive or during a meal right through to up beat reggae classics to get your feet tapping and your guests shouting for more. Sporting events The carnival sound of the steel pans is a perfect accompaniment to the energy of any sporting event. We have entertained crowds at everything from youth 5-a-side matches to international sporting fixtures. Workshops / Team Building As well as performing we are always keen to pass on our skills to others. We can do taster sessions at primary and nursery schools, group tuition at secondary and university level and corporate team building sessions. Other events We have played at many other occasions from Bah Mitzvahs to tree planting events so please feel free to get in touch to discuss anything else you have in mind.

We just wanted to say thank you ever so much for your organising and to the fantastic steel band we had at our wedding at Hartsfield Manor on the 21st July. It really made the day. We thought they were fantastic! Everyone keeps commenting on them. So thank you and please pass on our thanks to them ? They are incredibly talented!

I am writing to you on behalf of the Long Furlong Community Association to express our thanks for the musical entertainment that your band provided at the Jubilee Celebration. The music was great and definitely added to the atmosphere. Your band helped to make the event a huge success.

I would like to pass on my thanks to One Island Steel Band for attending out National Conference at The Hawthorns, West Bromwich on 11 July. I understand that the music was most enjoyable and that our delegates really enjoyed listening to them play at the end of our National Conference.

On behalf of Lindum Group Ltd we would like to say a huge thank you to the band, they were brilliant on Sunday and helped to give the family fun day a really great atmosphere. We have had lots of comments from employees saying how good they thought the band performed – especially considering the tropical temperatures!

Bonnie Flower, Lindum Group, August 

Just a quick note to thank you for your help making our day so special. We had an amazing time and can genuinely say that there is not a single thing that we would have changed (apart from maybe one of the best men taking to the stage and “singing” in the latter part of the evening!!). You were all absolutely brilliant and we would be happy to recommend any and all of you.

Taryn Hewitt, Bride, August 

Just wanted to let you know the band was great. They were prompt, courteous and talented. Our guests really loved the music and it made the party go with a swing. Many thanks
