The Elgin Community College
Steel Band

The Elgin Community College Steel Bands have been
providing high-quality, authentic steel band music since 1987. These two high-energy 15-piece groups perform two concerts annually at the college, as well as performing at festivals, corporate events, private parties, parades and school assemblies throughout the year. The dedicated musicians of the ECC Steel Bands put on a show that is wonderfully entertaining and educational at the same time. Performances typically include discussions of the history and manufacture of the instruments, as well as information about the various styles of Caribbean music the band performs.

For more information about hiring the band, or hearing the band in concert, please contact the Elgin Community College Music Department at 847-214-7240 or email Steve.
