Caribbean Steel Band (The Merrymen)

The Merrymen Steel Band is a fully professional steel band collective comprised of some of the finest professional pan players in the UK.

Versatile and available in different sizes, from a duo to a sextet, they can adjust to fit any space and will add energy and rhythm to private parties, weddings, corporate events, product launches, festivals and team building days.

With a range of styles from traditional island songs, to recent pop songs, reggae, and even Christmas carols, they add a real taste of the Caribbean to any occasion.

The sound of our steel pans will bring sunshine to the occasion whatever the great British weather has to offer!

CORPORATE EVENTS
We provide quite background music or music entertainment for the night.

PRIVATE FUNCTIONS
Steel bands are great for a variety of events such as birthdays, fundraising events, sporting events etc. We can perform during meals as background entertainment or as the main music entertainment for your event.

WEDDINGS
They can play before, during (yes they can play you down the aisle), or after your ceremony. They can even learn a request to make your wedding day even more special.

TEAM BUILDING WORKSHOPS

  • Learn how their particular instrument works and its role within the group
  • Learn how to make their contribution to the music fit in time with the parts of their surrounding colleagues
  • Problem solve as a group by participating in games such as 'fill in the missing notes' and 'Caribbean whispers'
  • Work with their colleagues to perform a song by the end of the workshop

The Merrymen will record the final performance and provide you with a DVD of your team's achievements.

Just wanted to send you a note to say that Rick was just such a rock star on our stand this week at Black Hat Europe.  He is just such a super chap and totally wonderful to work with.  He just rocks up and gets on with things, we had some issues with our cabling and he sorted that out and then just keeps rolling all day.  He chats away with all the ‘customers’ and is a joy to work with.  All our team at Carbon Black, just love him.

It was a great night and we have had fantastic feedback on all the acts that you provided.
