With lively music that radiates a unique blend of Caribbean inspirations and other songs, the University of Akron Steel Drum Band brings sparkle to any stage.  At the time of its founding in 1980, it was one of only three college steel drum ensembles in the nation.  Among its many accolades and awards, the band received a Grammy nomination for its CD "Live at E. J. Thomas Hall," an event that united top steel band performers from the U.S. and Trinidad.  Enthusiastic audiences have grown from 50 in 1980 to thousands per performance, making this ensemble a major force in the cultural and entertainment community of Akron and Cleveland.
