The public is invited to hear the sounds of the Caribbean when Steel Crazy performs live on Tuesday, July 23, 7 p.m., at The Holmstad, 700 W. Fabyan Parkway, Batavia.
Dave Seagren and his steel pan band will share a variety of tropical music styles including reggae, calypso, Latin and pop. You’ll hear the music of artists ranging from Jimmy Buffet to Bob Marley and Harry Belefonte as well as the traditional songs of the steel band.
Not only will you hear great music, you’ll see the unique steel pan drum, an instrument invented in the Caribbean in the 1940s. Crafted from a 55-gallon steel drum with hammers and blunted chisels, the instrument produces the beautiful tone that has become synonymous with the music of the Caribbean.
The concert and tropical-flare refreshments are free, but space is limited. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to (877) 391-7044 by Monday, July 22.
