Having first become popular in the 1970s, steel drum bands have maintained a certain level of popularity over the past few decades. As a result, they’ve made appearances on countless occasions during this time. These have ranged from weddings and birthdays to corporate events and traditional Caribbean parties.
All of this has been driven by their unique pan sounds. While these wouldn’t be the most highly recommended music if you simply want background noise or ambience, they’re one of the better options if you’re going to get people dancing to the tunes of Trinidad and Tobago.
They also offer a broad range of musical styles, such as rock and roll, reggae, pop, and Latin music. That variety can be enough to keep all of your guests entertained for the entire night. However, with the countless steel bands that you could hire, you might not know how to pick.
You’ll have to keep certain things in mind to do so correctly.
There’s a lot involved in throwing any kind of celebration. While little of this relates to your entertainment, some of it will. That means you’ll have multiple considerations when you’re thinking about hiring steel bands for an event. The amount of space you have for the event will be a priority.
These bands can be as small as two or three people. Alternatively, they can be as large as a few dozen. Whether or not you can fit them into the space is a question you’ll need to address. If the area is too small, then certain steel pan bands will be out of the question.
On the flip side, you wouldn’t want the space to be too ample, as the band may not be heard in certain areas, for instance, garden parties. That can help feed into the atmosphere, which you’re trying to create with the entertainment in the first place.
Reviews from previous clients are another priority. Steel bands should have multiple reviews available online. If these are negative, then you should know to avoid them. You might also want to consider whether they work with some kind of agency or registered company such as us.
Working with them through such a firm could make things much more manageable and ensure they go smoothly.
When you want to hire an authentic steel band, you might want to ask them a few questions. These will help calm any nerves you might have about them. They could also help you come to a much better decision about which pan sounds to hire.
The most notable of these questions are:
Once you have the answers to these, you shouldn’t have any problem choosing a band for your celebrations.
