Auckland steelband Steel’n Beats are a working testimony to the power of community - their vibrant and addictive sound sees them at the heart of a range of projects using music to inspire and educate, in chorus with a worldwide scene.
A tight-knit ensemble with an ambitious repertoire, Steel’n Beats take their blend of classic calypso and modern pop tunes to clubs, festivals and private events around New Zealand using instruments hand-built by the legendary maker and musician Lennox Jordan, from Trinidad & Tobago - the original birthplace of the steelpan.
The steel pan is made from a recycled 55-gallon oil drum, fine-tuned to produce intricate harmonies and textures. But the instrument truly comes to thunderous life when it is played in unison - as part of a steelband ensemble, one of the world’s most boisterous, glorious noises.
Steel'n Beats are suitable for all occasions, and sure to wow your guests!
