Questions About The Steel Band?
Q; Will I have direct contact with the steel band to discuss music etc?
A; Yes, the steel band gets your full contact details, so that he / she can discuss your requirements in finer detail.
Q; Does the steel band have a CD I can listen to, so that I can choose which songs I want played?
A; The steel band has a large repertoire of music, far too much to put on a CD. You will find a small amount of sound clips on our website you can listen to. Our best advice is to speak to the band, they know what works best and you can benefit from their experience.
Q; The sound clips on the website won't play properly. What can I do?
A; The sound clips on our website have been tested and work fine. The most common problem we hear about, is the tracks play intermittently. This is usually down to a slow internet connection or slow computer at your end. Let the song play all the way through (even if it's jumping). Once it has played all the way through, click the play button on your media player and the track usually plays perfectly.
Q; Can the steel band play outside?
A; Yes they will play outside in the warmer months of the year. However, they MUST be protected from direct sunlight and rain. Most venues can arrange a Gazebo or similar.
