London-based Caribbean Heatwave steel pan combo play a cool mix of Soca (the carnival party vibe), Calypso and some really funky Ska and Reggae. The band can provide background music for a drinks reception, but with full-on vocals from lead singer Geddes, the band can also provide exciting Caribbean-style party music in the evening.
“Limbo dancing, Reggae, Soca and Ska party music gets everyone onto the dance floor.”
The group play a vibrant mixture of traditional calypso, reggae, soca and ska, fused with classic Latin salsa – plenty of scope for dancing! Want to include limbo dancing? Geddes will organise a limbo competition for you!
For a large evening party, a quintet including drums is the best option, although smaller or larger combinations are available on request, depending on the type of entertainment required. As well as the steel pans, the band includes bass guitar, rhythm guitar and a variety of percussion add depth and texture to the music. To set a sunny atmosphere at an afternoon wedding drinks reception, a duo or trio of steel pans, performing acoustically would be an ideal addition.
All of the members of Caribbean Heatwave originate from one or other of the West Indian islands. Whatever the line-up, the band will present a stylish and professional show, and their enthusiasm for their music shines through in every performance! Let Caribbean Heatwave bring a summery slice of laid-back carnival beach-party magic to your special celebration.
