Testimonials | Reviews | News

We saw Steelasophical at a friend’s wedding, they were so good, we felt that we had to book them for our special day on Saturday 27th August at Hintlesham Golf Club – Thanks guys, you did an amazing job, an awesome collection of songs created a great atmosphere for our drinks reception. All our guests loved you and we loved seeing you again to enjoy a unique sound that really started our wedding reception off in the best way possible. Book these guys, they are amazing! 

Love the new Mrs & Mrs Clark, Felixstowe

 

WOW! These guys are amazing, varied music, good fun and really got the crowd involved. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for making our Christmas Party a huge success! 

Devizes Social Committee

Dear Gary I just wanted to say again thank you so much for being with us today. You were just wonderful and everyone enjoyed it so much. we were so lucky to have you! You had such a lovely way of presenting and all the guests loved you!! Many many thanks for all the happiness you bring to so many. With very best wishes 

Sally

They were just amazing! They were early for the event, I had arranged a time for them to begin playing but we ran over (cake cutting/ first dance etc) and they didn’t mind at all even though it meant they would not be able to get home as soon as they would have! They took requests, got people dancing, even went up to guests and sung directly to them which was brilliant! We’ve had such good feedback from our guests and would definitely recommend them! Lovely guys and I can’t thank them enough!
Kate Blackmore.

The band were booked for the wedding reception of my son and new wife.

The guys were brilliant, music was excellent, they were very smartly dressed and so pleasant to deal with.

From the initial booking of the event I was kept updated, the manager Gary responded straight away to any queries I had.

Overall a very professional band. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Price wise, they were also one of the best and charged only half of what other bands quoted.

We were able to offer a 50% discount due to a cancellation on an adjacent date

Thank you Sarah Jane for the easy booking and cheerful responses to my endless pre-booking questions, and to Gary for providing perfect music for my father’s birthday. Lots of our guests commented on what fun it was to have calypso music. Gary is delightful. Thank you.

“After researching, reading endless reviews and talking personally to dozens of Caribbean Steel Drum bands, we decided to book Steelasophical… They didn’t disappoint, they were professional, entertaining and overall amazing. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Steelasophical to any future clients.”

Hi Gary and Kush, I hope you are both well. I would just like to say a massive thank you to you both for coming along and performing at our Sports Awards last week.

Gary Trotman with music used in the James Bond 007 ‘Casino Royale’

Sony Music are by far the biggest in Music world-wide. Their catalogue and music database spans many millions of music tracks, yet when Sony Music wanted to add a unique tropical musical flava to their new production James Bond 007 Casino Royale, they looked no further than the partnership of ARC Music and Steelasophical.

Permission was sought from Sony Music (and granted) and today you can hear our tropical sounds within the movie and see our name in the credits.

It has the distinction of being the only music used in the film (other than the title track – You Know My Name)

ARC Music Production International 

International selling artist Gary Trotman with music selling in over 42 countries worldwide

This is a World record company specialising in authentic, roots, traditional music from virtually every country in the world. After listing to an concept album of mine called PanBrassOrama, they trusted in Steelasophical to award recording contracts which resulted in the production of 2 of the very best selling and most popular Caribbean Steeldrum albums ever!

Selling world-wide in over 42 countries and available through every major music reseller (including iTunes, Amazon, HMV, Sony Music). The first album was realised in Nov 1999, and to this day retains its high retail price, where others have been deleted from catalogues or have had their prices slashed to medium / low due to falling sales 

Martin Young, Come dine with me winner

Gary Trotman as seen on TV with a winning musical entertainment performance on this iconic TV food show.

“I was chosen to appear on c4 come dine with me in April. It was a Caribbean theme evening and I thought what better way to entertain than to have a steel band. Gary was amazing. It was like we were really in Barbados. I honestly believe that it was because of his amazing performance that I went on to win.”

Thank you so much Gary

After your wedding day … our Steelpan band / DJ will not provide any further services after the wedding has finished, unlike a photographer for example who will have to edit your photos and put them into an album. It can be really useful for for other brides to hear about your experiences with your Steelpan band / DJ and if you get a moment, you should definitely leave a testimonial about your Steelpan band / DJ on an independent review site: free index, Google reviews, Facebook, trip advisor, etc.

Drop your Steelpan band / DJ an email and asks if they have a preferred platform for this. If you have any feedback about the services provided then it can be really helpful for the Steelpan band / DJ to know what you thought was really good and if there were any improvements that you could think of, or any areas where you felt the services was not as good as you expected.

Gary Trotman is renowned for the pictures and videos he takes during many of his performances

Steelasophical Steelpan Dj | Lighting

The Steelpan / DJ should provide moving dance floor lighting, lighting stands, lighting controllers, cables and all other lighting equipment required for your wedding disco. When you speak to a Steelpan / DJ , you should ask to see a photo or video that shows exactly what lights they will be providing if you book them to Steelpan / DJ at your wedding. It could also be a really good time to think about how you want your first dance photos to look. For example, if you book a Steelpan / DJ that uses a red and green laser then you will both be covered in red and green dots in all of your first dance photos. 
 

Decorative uplighting transforms the area around the dance-floor and paints the walls with light.

or your first dance, the lights can be set to your colour scheme to help your photographer create a fairytale first dance photo. For the rest of the evening, the lights respond to the music and create a lively and exciting environment for dancing!

When you think about how many up-lighters you need, you should consider what you would like to light up with the up-lighters. For example, you might want to

  • Uplight the pillars in the room 
  • Light up the beams in a barn 
  • Add light to a dark room
  • Light up the draping in a marquee

Decorative uplighting is a way to enhance the look of a dance-floor by lighting up the walls and ceilings around the dancing space. As your evening guests arrive and during your first dance, our up-lighters will be set to a colour of your choice.

 
For Toni & Callum wedding we provided lighting fx, uplighting and large LOVE lettering
 

Music Choice Selection

We know that your mother in law probably wont share your passion for heavy metal, indie folk, fidget house, garage or jump up drum and bass.

This is where our skill and musical knowledge comes into play.

Our talented steelpan players and Dj specialise in making beautiful pan versions of songs that were never meant to be performed on a steelpan. You will love the cool tropical flava covers, your friends will love them too …!!

We will hunt out killer floor fillers, discover amazing remixes and find the best way of performing the music you love at your wedding or party

That would be great, thank you so much. 

We thought it would be nice to support a local band in Nottingham but it’s not turned out very well – their correspondence has been terrible so lost confidence in them but have now decided it’s not worth the risk especially if it’s both afternoon and evening entertainment and on our wedding day – losing the deposit is fine – they only requested £55 as we booked 18 months in advanced. 

We understand you would want 40% deposit which would be fine – We’ve watched a lot of your youtube videos and read your reviews 🙂 

Kind regards

As suppliers we each believe our own service help to most make these kind of days special. In reality, although one aspect may seem to shine above all others (Music, Flowers, Dress, Venue), we each contribute to the ‘whole’ and complement one another to make, as sen in this blog post.
In more recent times, weddings are taking on the more bespoke and theatrical theme, making the day totally unique to the tastes and representing the personality of the bride and groom!

Steelasophical Steel Band is a popular entertainment choice throughout the year for outdoor events, but especially during the summer period which makes us perfect for all manner of outdoor events. Although it may be considered easy for other types of musicians to perform acoustically moving from location to location, the same cannot be said for Steelasophical Steel Band as we set and perform in one location.

This is actually a plus, as not only do we form a focal point, our setup ensures that the music will provide the backdrop throughout the entire space and be comfortably heard, thanks to the clarity and quality of our PA system having such a high SPL value.

 

To ensure your function run smoothly, always discuss your arrangements withSteelasophical Steel Band beforehand.  Alternatively, ask the Steelasophical upon arrival for their advice on what they consider to be the most suitable performance area. This will eliminate any setting, and re-setting of equipment.

For outdoor events, suitable protection against rain or direct sunlight cannot be provided, Steelasophical will provide our own fashionable gazebo. Perfect weather conditions cannot be guaranteed, and with steelasophical making use of quality electrical equipment, providing a gazebo will offer that mechanical barrier required. .. also helping to fulfil those Health and Safety conformities. 

The most suitable space required for Steelasophical would be 3m x 3m … the size of a standard gazebo. 

Although completely self contained, Steelasophical would require 1 x 13amp socket outlet. 

For later in the evening functions, Steelasophical Steel Band can provide ambient and FX lighting with great audience projection. This visual element will provide a perfect Music and visual atmosphere between the band, and your guests.

 

Performing out of vision, with no cover, or lighting, and away from guests, does nothing to enhance the performance. Performing is a two way thing, and Steelasophical love to be seen as well as heard, and always appreciate the reaction and interaction from an audience.

Public Liability Insurance covers you against injury to a third party and/or damage to their possessions. As most musicians and entertainers will require different levels of cover depending on the types of events they perform most insurers now offer tailor made policies. This will ensure that the policy holder is suitably covered, even for situations specific to their performance.

Venues are frequently asking musicians if they have their own Liability insurance before hiring them, so it’s best to organise this in advance, otherwise they may cancel your performance. All musicians, bands and entertainers hired for private functions, Weddings and Corporate Events must have Public Liability Insurance.

To avoid the chance of a third party making a claim against you it is important that you take all the necessary health and safety precautions when preparing for a live performance. It is important that all cables and leads are taped down with heavy-duty masking tape and all electrical equipment is PAT Tested.

Equipment must be set up as per the manufacturers instructions, or your insurance may not be valid!Most venues will have risk assessments in place for the events they hold so if in doubt ask the organiser for any health and safety tips.

Public Liability Insurance can vary in cost, so be sure to get at least two quotes to compare. Your insurance quote will be prepared using the information you provide; the more specific your needs, the greater the cost is likely to be.
