Worthing Steel Band

Worthing Steel Band has been building a local profile steadily since 2012, it's members learning and performing under Jim Bernardin's direction. We now have two adult bands and are looking to develop a Junior and Youth band in the Autumn of 2016.

Rehearsals take place on Tuesday evenings at a local school in Worthing. Additional practices, lessons and workshops are arranged prior to specific gigs, along with workshops to provide new players a chance to try it out.

Gigs we've enjoyed in the past months, or are looking forward to soon, include the Graffham Festival grand finale, HRM The Queen's 90th Birthday celebration in Arundel, Downview Primary Proms In The Playground, Worthing Business Circle Summer Barbecue, Ferring Nursery Fair, Worthing 10Km Run, PanJam with Sussex Steel, The Arundel Festival, Worthing Carnival, Worthing Pier Bonfire Night celebrations, and a number of Caribbean themed fundraising nights.

If you are someone who would like to try a brand new musical experience, that is also welcoming and sociable, or if you know of children aged between 9 and 18 who may like to try our Junior or Youth bands, please get in touch at jim@worldmusicworkshops.co.uk

Following on from the success of our own band social nights, we can now offer THEMED Caribbean events as an entertainment package. These are non-profit-making nights providing cocktail steel pan music on arrival, full steel band for dancing, authentic Caribbean food from our expert caterers and band members Nadia and Mark, and a venue to suit the numbers. We are happy to organise everything and leave ticket sales to you for your own clients or party. Together we can share a wonderful tropical evening of food and entertainment among friends. Because we offer these as non-profit ventures, this offers clients an excellent fundraising opportunity for your chosen charity. We have raised money for the Worthing Churches Homeless Project and the Anthony Nolan Trust.

Blue Steel Band

As well as the original Worthing Steel Band band, we now have a further band following hot on their heels, who are performing as well. Blue Steel was formed from a number of existing players who had been part of the Worthing 'B' band, along with a batch of new recruits, making a complete new band at the start of 2017. The members of Blue Steel have set up their own website and are part of the growing community of pan players in the Worthing area. www.bluesteelworthing.co.uk

Whether you need a full band, a small group or a solo steel pan player, Worthing Steel Band can deliver. Please contact Jim via this website on jim@worldmusicworkshops.co.uk or visit our other website www.steelpanevents.co.uk.

Earlier in 2016 we recorded two CD's with the help of Christopher Hurd of Ivy Arch Studios as our sound engineer. Both CD's were recorded in one day at Goring Primary School and we are proud to give 50% of all future sales to the WCHP charity (above).
