What is different about Big Sand? Our players, equipment, presentation and performance are all of a different calibre. Our service is guaranteed. Our band has real musicians who have stepped up to meet the requirements for corporate entertainment and luxury wedding services.
The music is performed with clarity and definition which makes it easy for the listener to connect with each melody and the repertoire ventures through the most exciting and stimulating journey. Our service is used by discerning clients who are looking for something different to entertain guests at a party.
Three players form an acoustic ensemble which includes the melody, chords and bass. The Bass player is ambidextrous and shakes a maraca simultaneously whilst performing with two bass drums. With Big Sand, a steel drum band means a band which is characterised by the majority of instruments being steel drums (Steel Pan). We believe that it is more fascinating to watch the energy, enthusiasm and telepathy of real talented musicians performing, in contrast to a soloist with backing tracks. The players act as integral components in a well oiled machine which shifts through musical gears to create excitement at a party. Online, we have an extensive footprint throughout #SocialMedia and you can follow us on Twitter/bigsands. All commuinications are managed by Bigsands.
Over 80% of our bookings feature just 3 players and this works effectively for most small parties. Our 5 piece band adds another dimension to the sound and is the preferred option for larger events. Enjoy our demo samples and compare with any other steel drum bands; when you hire our band the entire process is seamless.
