Steelasophical in conjunction with ARC Music Prod Int, were trusted by movie executives at Sony Music USA, to add that unique tropical Caribbean music flava to their icon movie, James Bond 007 Casino Royale. This was made even poinient when you think, not only did they have the whole world of music artists to chose from, but they also have Steel Band music within their own catalogue … yet they sought permission to use our music above all others.

The band were booked for the wedding reception of my son and new wife. Gary and the guys were absolutely brilliant, their presentation and 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 all queries I had.

Overall a very professional band. I would not hesitate in recommending them. Price wise, they were the dearest we came across, but for good reason! the value was there to see.

On average we are having to disappoint up to 70 clients every year 

who expressed a wish to secure at least one of our services, 

due to being booked by the time they get back to us! 

Due to the volume of enquiries we receive and scarcity of available dates,

we operate on a first to confirm basis and not able to hold dates.
