The University of Georgia Steel Band serves as a popular ambassador to the Athens music community and the public at large. Made up of traditional steel pans from the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, the Steel Band is accompanied by electric bass, congas, drumset, and auxiliary percussion.
The steel band has served as artists-in-residence throughout Georgia, performing at numerous arts festivals and colleges throughout the southeast. The group has also appeared at the Georgia Music Educators Association conference, various days of percussion, and many other events.
