What is different about Big Sand? The key difference is that we are running a business; this changes the whole ethos from an avocation to a profession. Our players, equipment, presentation and performance are developed for high-end events and parties.
The service is guaranteed and our band has musicians who have stepped up to meet the requirements for luxury wedding services and corporate entertainment.
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 steel drum band is used by discerning clients who are looking for a professional crew, to do a professional job and make it look easy.
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. The band performs colourful melodic music in the background as guests converse with champagne and canapes.
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.
