Band One Steel Band is a Manchester based steel drum band, whose players between them have over 40 years of experience playing the pan.

Specialists in Weddings, Caribbean evenings, and formal and informal functions, Band One 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 Salsa, and Bossa Nova.


The music is arranged in an innovative style, but without losing the classic steel pan sound, and with jazzy chords and improvisations adding spice to all songs.

The band is flexible in size to accommodate the size of both budget and event. The 3-piece band is the most popular however the band can play as a mighty six piece. Other combinations are possible and there is also the option of a soloist with backing tracks.
