Verified profile
Sofia steel drummer soloist is from Birmingham , i can provide steel drum entertainment for all events and occasion .

My name is Sofia, I  was born in the Caribbean ,i have been playing steel drums for over 20 years ,I started playing the steel drum  at a tendered age. with no musical knowledge and no common sense about the Steel drum I fell in love with the instrument and learn to love and appreciate the instrument. I am a university graduate with a BA (Hons) in music My continually expanding repertoire of music is very diverse, covering genres such as Jazz, Pop, Reggae, Calypso, gospel and many other genres. My commitment and ability to demonstrate the great musical passionate of the pan have take me places such as Trinidad &Tobago, Panama, Turks and Cacaos, Etc.  One of my greatest achievements to date was getting the chance to represent my country at the ‘World steel pan festival’, held in Trinidad & Tobago. I also had the opportunity to play with some of the world top Steel Orchestras in Trinidad & Tobago. a steel drum soloist are suitable for all occasion and events.

We were looking for a steel band to complete our ‘Caribbean’ themed wedding day, so we were delighted to find Steel Drum Entertainment via a third party source. So highly reviewed by previous clients, we do hope that this review further embellishes how talented this band really are, they truly are first rate. There was some scepticism about the choice of a steel band, but I can honestly say with the amount of people up and dancing, Steel Drum Entertainment made our evening reception truly magical. I cannot thank them enough for doing this, creating the atmosphere that meant so much to us; I would book them again in a flash. Many thanks, Phil and Elise

Hi We have used Sofia and the Steel Drum Entertainment team for about 4 years now here at University of Nottingham, School of Health Sciences. They are very professional and the sound is amazing! They are here every year for Black History month and they play in the café, which is mainly for students. The students love it! We had queues going out the door this year of people coming in to see them. Staff from across the University come over to see them play. It’s like summer again in October when the Steel Drum Entertainment come to see us. Thanks Linda
