We’ve just had an amazing tour abroad – the band went to Tunisia to play Hammamet Carnival, along with many local Tunisian performers and acts from all over the world. In addition to a main carnival parade on the road, we played five gigs in hotels and resort venues for beautiful local audiences, including many children… all in all it was an amazing carnival week. We will be returning to Tunisia same time next year… so with that in mind it’s a great time to join UFO now and plan your March 2024 holiday playing pan with a steelband under the North African sun! Two of the players who came with us this year had been playing for less than a term.. but that’s UFO… bring your spirit of joy, teamwork and commitment and you will have great musical experiences with UFO!
We have started learning our new 2023 soca set for our summer season – Jason’s arrangements are stunning and magical. Our Carnival launch will be Luton Carnival 2023 on 28th May – the place to be!
UFO Steelband is now open for more bookings in 2022 – for community and charity as well as private or corporate events…. already our summer diary is filling with weddings and carnivals – email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to make an enquiry.
We do have some space in the band and for the new term which starts beginning of May. Our inexpensive and accessible lessons – where complete beginners or experienced players are welcome – resume in the panyard every Monday and Tuesday night. Email Ufosteelband@gmail.com if you would like to find out more.
