Steel of the Night is a Caribbean Steel drum band. We play "feel good" island songs, a little old rock 'n roll, Jimmy Buffett and Harry Belefonte' favorites and even selections that can be church appropriate. Our entertainment is guaranteed to uplift an audience, no matter which crowd we're playing for. Our mission is to make people happy and affirmed - simple as that!
In addition to performing great island musical hits, Steel of the Night band members can offer lots of party fun. Hula hoop contests, twist competition and limbo challenges are among a few events. If a more formal event is required the band will provide a concert setting. Workshops or demonstrations on handcrafting the steel drum instrument can be offered in an educational forum. Whatever your needs, Steel of the Night is here for you!
No matter which type of crowd, let us make your program a cheerful, happy, Island event.
Steel of the Night consists of two or more members and can add up to four additional players for certain occasions. Here's a little personal information.
Gregory Webb - Greg is presently playing lower range double tenor pans. He also plays twelve string guitar, double guitar pans, triple guitar pans and sings. He is very proficient at midi, computer, lighting and sound tech needs. When he is not out on the job, he heads the steel drum shop.
Alice Webb - Alice's fingers dance on the keys of her keyboard. She plays all keyboard, sings and plays the upper range double tenor pans. She is also responsible for the elaborate Caribbean sets and tropical props used to help set the relaxing mood of the performances. Alice is the "party coordinator". She's magnificent at getting a crowd up to dance, hula-hoop and even limbo! (upon request)
Jim King, our newest member, a life long musician from Louisville, Kentucky now living in , primarily plays saxophone. He also plays guitar and occasionally percussion or keys. Jim has been a huge asset to Steel of the Night. Jim came to the band on a Thursday afternoon - just a friend of a friend - to "fill in" on an emergency gig on Saturday. Having never played Island music, we didn't know how it would be - but we were extremely pleased! He has a natural gift of fitting in. That was over a year ago and Jim has become a mainstay. Life is interesting. As you know the original Steel of the Night members are all from Kentuckiana - the Kentucky / Indiana area. Well guess what. Jim & his beautiful wife Linda are also from Kentuckiana! We all have history there, even playing some of the same venues, including Fort Knox, the Belle of Louisville, Heathers on the River, The Kentucky Derby Chow Wagons, etc..... It's as if we were made to perform together. Jim has performed with several groups over the years, but his top headliner was The Midnight Hour in Louisville Kentucky. Now that Jim resides in Florida, he's known locally for playing saxophone with Linda doing vocals as "The Kings." You can hear them performing oldies and a little country, as well as dance music in local establishments. Also, like the Steel of the Night original members, Jim also performs for churches and festivals. Adding Jim and his saxophone to Steel of the Night has been a huge success. We can't wait for you to hear us with our newest commodity - the "saxy" one! Jim share with Alice & Greg in saying - We want to give it our all. We take great pride in being able to perform Island tunes that simply help our crowds relax & enjoy. A bit of time away from work & stress. Come see us! You're going to love Jim. (We Do!)
(Simmons) Balogac - We're proud to formally announce Sheree Balogac has
become a regular performer with "Steel of the Night" (Finally!) We
first met Sheree in 2007. We visited the Floral City Florida
Strawberry Festival hoping to hear "Amazing Steel", a large group of
very young steel drummers. While enjoying their performance we both
took special note of one outstanding lady. She read music, played by
ear, & switched to different instruments. After the show we introduced
ourselves & she's been joining us as "guest performer" on occasion ever
Herndon - is our
"showman". He's extremely entertaining to watch. There's not a
muscle in his body he doesn't sway while he plays! Jeremy plays upper double tenor
pans and sings. Recently he's added the G.T. design double tenors pans. (yes -
double double) This is the newest design of tenor pans. It has nearly a four
octave range and is perfect for leads.
Alice, Greg, Sheree, and Jim have music in their past. They've performed in Rock Bands, Gospel Bands, Orchestras, Marching Bands, Musical Theaters and more. Alice and Greg agree that they've been greatly influenced and motivated by three musical greats including Tom Reynolds (Tommy Rey) of Hamilton, Joe Frank and Reynolds fame, the great Harry Belefonte' , /The Marleys and last but certainly not least the infamous Jimmy Buffett. By the grace of God we hope to carry on their musical treasures.
Music is top priority for Steel of the Night. It's our way of affirming others, uplifting audiences, and making this world a happier place. We hope to touch your life someday.
We are a full time band!
