On the lawn between Grimm Hall and the CU Center.  Bring your beach chair or blanket and a picnic supper.

 This talented group is made up of a collection of world-class musicians predominantly originating from the Caribbean Islands.  They thrill their audiences with a wide selection and variety of authentic Caribbean music such as calypso and soca, music which combines the melodic lilting sound of calypso with percussion.  Steelband music features steel bans that are hand-made, bowl-like, metal drums that are crafted so that different sections of the drum produce different notes when struck.
