Hinxton Caribbean Lunch July 2017

Hearing of Sawston Steel, via a friend, gave us the idea of a Caribbean Lunch as a community event for our village, as well as a fundraiser for our church.  The happy, sunny sound of Sawston Steel, playing familiar tunes, gave us just the right atmosphere.  A lovely way to spend a Sunday lunchtime.

South Cambs District Council - Community Awards

Please could you pass our thanks to everyone in Sawston Steel band who played so splendidly last night - the band were the perfect musical accompaniment to the evening.


Thank you both also for being so helpful and well organised as we made the arrangements.


Wedding Reception July 2016

Thank you again for getting the evening off in such a joyful way!

Caribbean Night at The Gogs Golf Club, June 2015

Please could you pass on my thanks to the wonderful Sawston Steel Band for giving us such a fantastic evening at The Gogs on Saturday. The music was great, and well chosen. The band gave the whole event a happy, friendly atmosphere. I have never seen Gogs members looking so relaxed and even carefree enough to Conga around the patio.

Lottie's 21st Birthday Party, May 2015

Lottie will remember the Steel Band playing for a very long time and as you know she really enjoyed it from start to finish, particularly being able to play in the last number and also being able to share your break with you. Many of our guests have also commented on the fact that having the Steel Band for a Birthday was very different but also very enjoyable! So, you have made a real mark!<< New text box >>

Burwash Manor Barns - Apple Day, October 2014

A MASSIVE thank you for today – thank you so much for coming and for making the day a success. I will let you know later in the week what we have raised for The Sick Children’s Trust – but it’s looking like a good amount, and hopefully we will beat last year’s £3,000...


Great Abington Picnic and Barbecue, 19 July 2014

Thank you so much for last night; I’ve had many favourable comments about your contribution to the event and of course there were many that had not heard you before. Despite being unable to sit down for any length of time I did have time to listen to you more than I do at the Fun Run evening. Your repertoire has expanded considerably and the complexity of your pieces was a far cry from those early days some 10 years ago when the Fun Run funded some of your early drums .

Please accept my thanks for getting our evening off to such an enjoyable start and for engaging with the audience so well. You gelled so well with the Hadstock Band and of course Janet was a star when she took the baton; it all made for a really lovely evening.

Best wishes Tony

You are just lovely people who make lovely music.
