We’ve just had a wonderful festive season playing gigs all over London, mainly in community venues bringing Christmas spirit through music. Thank you to everyone who came to see us play… it was great to welcome followers at Trash & Treasure Christmas Market in Ealing, in St George’s Square by the light of the Christmas tree, at Kensington Town Hall outdoor market, at World’s End Piazza, at Greenford Quay and even at Portobello Road for a very atmospheric shopping Sunday. It was great to meet new friends who stopped to listen or had a go at steelpan through one of our on-street workshops… we had so much fun bringing music to the community.
UFO Steelband is now open for more bookings in 2022 – for community and charity as well as private or co-orporate events…. already our summer diary is filling with weddings and carnivals – email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
And – most important – do contact us if you would like to learn to play steelpan. Our inexpensive and accessible lessons – where complete beginners or experienced players are welcome – resume in Ealing on Monday evening, 10th January, and continue twice weekly until Spring. This year the band will be on that truck at Notting Hill Carnival and will on tour in Tunisia (and hopefully Spain too!) Learn to play steelpan, percussion or dance with UFO and join us! We have so much to look forward to in 2022! Watch this space!
Urban Fox Orchestra Steelband, aka UFOs, is based in the centre of Ealing in West London. Our aim is to enjoy and share the beautiful music of the steelpan, and we offer inexpensive lessons to people of all ages including complete beginners. Join us!
We welcome people of all ages, from complete beginners to advanced players. Come join our weekly lessons to learn our set and perform at events like Notting Hill Carnival & London New Year’s Day Parade. We especially welcome blind and visually impaired beginners to our unique UFO Pilots class.
A look at the UFO Steelband’s recent ventures in the past two years. We aim to develop UFO steeband so that it can, through spring/summer/autumn programs, offer the opportunity to expand & include more lessons & more players, play more performances & reach new audiences.
