Auckland-based Steel'n Beats are more than just a steel band - they're a musical movement. Utilising the unique sound of traditional hand-built steelpan instruments made by Trinidad & Tobago’s Lennox Jordan, this tight-knit ensemble merges classic Calypso, Latin and African rhythms with modern pop to create a sound that transcends genres and reverberates through your soul.
Whether at clubs, festivals, or private events around New Zealand, Steel’n Beats' music inspires, educates, and delights audiences of all ages.
The recycled 55-gallon oil drums used for their instruments are fine-tuned to produce intricate melodies and textures. And when played together as a steelband ensemble, they emit some of the world's most boisterous and glorious sounds.
From weddings to festivals to corporate events, Steel'n Beats are perfect for any occasion.
