Revellers Steelband are a group of people who have come together to learn, teach and perform fantastic steelpan music! We want you to revel in the music and revel with us!
Our pan yard is in Luton at the UK Centre for Carnival Arts
Our tutor is Ian Beckles, a professional steelpan musician from Trinidad who arranges our music and teaches us using traditional Caribbean methods.
We play to a high standard and are available to hire for corporate events, weddings, parties and public community events.
We also run workshops for adults and children.
We rely on funding and paid performances to continue to learn, perform and teach so please contact us to: hire us, join us, join a beginners workshop, discuss possible artistic collaborations or maybe you'd even like to sponsor us!

Revellers Steelband are fantastic! They brought such a cool vibe to our Picnic on the Meads community event in Wheathampstead playing for huge crowds. We've had so much positive feedback from young and old alike so wouldn't hesitate to recommend them!
