Steelasophical is arguably at the true evolution of Caribbean Steeldrum  musical entertainment
Traditional Caribbean steelbands can be great, I know this because I spent over 15 years performing with many of the very best bands and musicians in the UK. There are also more steelbands around today than there has ever been. There is even a website out there boasting 100 steelbands on their books, covering the entire country!! Yet the bands they recommend they have not seen all perform personally (I know this because I declined to be a party to it) .. so it can be pot-luck!

Steelasophical Is 100% professional .. this is not a weekend hobby nor a group of musicians getting together to busk on your special day.
I even know of a top named band that splits into as many as 4 bands of sessions musicians all claiming to be the original band, yet trading on the name and reputation .. again pot-luck as to what the client will experience .. I’ve been there and seen it all and still seeing the effects of poor service that continues to this day .. BUT through this, I have learned so much .. which is where this evolution truly comes to life!

Jumbie Jam Steel Pan


The Jumbie Jam is a fantastic instrument for music education. It is an easy and effective way to get students started immediately. Schools across the globe are now utilising the Jumbie Jam as a primary instrument in their music classes and programs.

Students are not overwhelmed or intimidated by the Jumbie Jam, ensuring an effective and immediate learning experience. The Jumbie Jam is smaller than a full-sized Steel Drum, with only 8 notes (which are labeled) as opposed to the complex and expensive 32- note full-sized drum. The Steel Drum is a multi-faceted instrument providing both percussive and melodic musical capabilities creating a well rounded musical experience. Originating in the country of Trinidad & Tobago it is a culturally rich instrument providing the opportunity for cross curricular studies.

Music directors are thrilled to implement a new, exciting and cultural instrument. Further enhancing the product, we have developed classroom curriculum providing guidance on implementing and expanding the instruments scope along with special labels and song books for individuals with Special Needs.

The Jumbie Jam was selected for a “Best Tools for Schools” award by NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants). The panel of diverse music educators identified the Jumbie Jam as music instrument that provides innovative solutions and opportunities for music learning. Also noted were Panyard’s teacher guides and song books assisting the teacher to incorporate the Jumbie Jam into their existing music classroom or teaching it as a new group instrument.
