"A vibrant and fun explosion of upbeat sounds to delight your heart."

Auckland steel band Steel’n Beats is 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 pan-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. We are suitable for all occasions, and guaranteed to wow your guests!
