Searching on the internet is not always easy to identify reliable, quality brands and services thats are proven, trusted, respected, global quality etc .. a piano is a piano, they may be different sizes, collars, configuration – but they all do the same job so on that basis it is easy to just compare on things like price and size … same goes for a Gibson or Stradivarius .. try booking UB40 for the same price as Johnny and his Melody Makers – value is relative and relevant!
Gary turned up when promised and setup discretely. He worked with us to incorporate little touches into our day that made it special for us, including family involvement. He was very flexible and responsive to our guests, even adapting to the spontaneous conga line that developed and sending us a video of it afterwards which was awesome. He read the room well and stayed beyond our original end time since our guests were enjoying his music so much. We’ve had multiple mentions since then from guests who loved his playing. Would thoroughly recommend him.
Gary performed on Tuesday at my Nan’s service, and was absolutely fantastic! Everyone who came along said that he made the day, not only with his great music but also with his infectious smile. When searching for performers, Caribbean Steel Drum Band prices were the lowest by far (and I mean hundreds!!) and from the beginning Gary was calm and uncomplicated when making arrangements for the day… just what I needed at this difficult time for my family. I can not recommend highly enough. Thank you so much.
“Gary played at a drinks reception for my 60th birthday and he was very impressive. Infact the whole process of selecting and booking him was clear, simple and user friendly. At the event he was professional and the guests enjoyed his perfromance which set exactly the right tone I was aiming for to kick off the party. I would be more than happy to use him again and to recommend him to a friend.”
Gary from Caribbean Steel Drum Band was a fantastic addition to my daughter’s 21st birthday party, very professional and charming to deal with, he hit just the right note and everyone loved his light display too.
Steel Band On Come Dance With Me
I was chosen to appear on c4 come dine with me in april. It was a Carribean theamed 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. Martin young (Come dine with me winner. )
We have now had the pleasure of hiring Gary’s Caribbean Steel Drum Band on two occasions. On both occassions our guests were very impressed, as were we and I would not hesitate to recommend them. Their music is “happy” music and with it comes the “sunshine” even though it was a rainy Saturday in May. Thank you for making my husband’s birthday party one to remember.
Thank you for a fantastic evening, all my guests had so much. Lovely to meet you, you were very accommodating playing anything and everything my guests Wanted to hear, so many brilliant comments. See you again I hope Jenny x Jenny Berry
The evening for our community BBQ was cool and cloudy but Gary’s warm personality and the amazing variety of his caribbean steel band music brought a really sunny atmosphere to the event and put a smile on everyone’s face! Just brilliant! Thanks so much Gary.

Gary Trotman of Steelosophical was really excellent. Our charity event was brought to life with the amazing tropical sound that he produced. Everyone there was dancing to the music. Gary made the night!
Our Residents had a great time last week at Merlewood when Gary came to perform the steel drums whilst they enjoyed their carribean themed lunch. The Residents are still talking about what how much they enjoyed Gary’s music. He really made it special for them. He’s the nicest guy and even stayed well over his paid time and didn’t finish playing till the residents had finished their lunch. We will definitely look forward to booking him again in the future.
Gary was fantastic. He really made the atmosphere at our Apple Day very festive. We all enjoyed his music. He was on time, cheerful and I would highly recommend him for any event.
(Buckland Apple Day)
Superb, music was wonderful – just right for our 7 year itch party! Gary was a star so relaxed and helped the party to really go with a spring. Could not have chosen a better booking and star performer – thoroughly recommend.
Enjoy the sounds of the Caribbean
Enjoy the sounds of the Caribbean
A million dollars says there`s not even one person in this world who does not love the Caribbean and its beauties. Everything about this place is just so hauntingly perfect and relaxing it is impossible not to fall in love with this region of the planet. Apart from the wonderful and crystalline seas or the white sand, do you know what the most beautiful thing about the Caribbean is? Its music. As soon as you hear those steel drums playing you automatically get teleported into this paradisiac region of America. Unfortunately, if you`re outside of the Caribbean, you won`t be able to encounter these melodies so easily. Finding a proficient and experienced steel band is definitely going to take you some time. That is, if you haven`t heard of me before.
My name is Gary Trotman, an accomplished musician, engineer, designer and entrepreneur. I`m a man who is passionate about music and joy. I love bringing happiness to the people around me by playing my steel drums and sharing my passion and love for Caribbean music. For those of you who don`t know me, I have a one-man steel band that is dedicated to bringing the songs and melodies of the Caribbean where they are desired. My company is called Steelasophical, and it is sure to provide you with an experience of a lifetime. Before we get into my band Steelasophical, let me tell you a little bit more about myself so that you get to know me a little bit better.
Just like every entrepreneur on this planet, I have always been a diligent and perseverant person. I started working in the early 80s. I was a trainee electrician at a company called Beecham Group Plc. Since them my career has immensely evolved into what it is today. It all started when the company where I worked became a bigger and more important enterprise and merged with Glaxo and Welcome. After that I`ve been escalating to better and more rewarding positions until I became the accomplished and experienced musician I am today.
Although I worked a significant amount of time in the field of electricity, I am also a proficient designer, network marketer, photographer and a building services contract manager. Needless to say, I am also a full-time musician.
