Happy New Year from UFO!


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 ufosteelband@gmail.com 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!
