Trust trust trust …

“Clients don’t choose Steelasophical on price … they trust in Steelasophical based on Value

Steelasophical clients trust us enough to not only book up to 3 years in advanced, but to secure their date they pay a 40% retainer fee and the balance 30 days prior to the date. We known of no other music service able to gain that level of trust. One of the reasons why Steelasophical finds it so easy to over deliver on every occasion.   

About Steelasophical

Steelasophical is an award winning, leading UK based, Premier Modern Steel Band and & Caribbean Dj Music Service Steel Band Solo • Duo • Trio • Fouro. World class Steel drum and percussionists available for bookings around the UK, Europe and beyond. The clients who choose Steelasophical Steel Band & Dj for their wedding or event usually have a huge passion for music and want it to be an important part of their day. The concept of Steelasophical is Steeldrums meets mobile DJ, Steelpans performed along with studio quality backing music for a full band sound. A Steelasophical Soloist/Duo can be the equivalent in sound to a 10+ piece steel band or a professional mobile DJ… hows that for value!

Where an acoustic band would struggle to be heard outdoors (depending on the direction of the wind), Steelasophical will create and maintain the perfect musical atmosphere even in large outdoor spaces. The music selection is vast and caters for all ages and venues and special occasions. Steelasophical started back in the late 90’s when soloists with backing music was in its infancy. Today it is largely copied by many, alas, most lack the understanding that there is a distinction between being a musician and being a musical entertainer. Steelasophical is largely copied but never emulated nor surpassed; continuously evolving and laying the path for others to follow.

“We bring the Caribbean to you”

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

 
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

 

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.”

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

•|• Steel Band •|• 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

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!

•|• Steel Band •|• 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

•|• Steel Band •|• 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

•|• Steel Band •|• 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

•|• Steel Band •|• 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!
