Sister Steel is a unique and energetic professional steel drum band based in Portland, ME. This inclusive instrument is as much fun to play as it is to listen to! Our music, everything from traditional calypso to contemporary pop, will be sure to have you dancing. Most of us have been playing together amidst a cultural phenomenon in Blue Hill, ME since high school, some of even longer, under the direction of Carl Chase and his son Nigel. Carl brought the steel drums from Trinidad and Tobago to Blue Hill over 50 years ago and they have only been gaining in popularity ever since. Our name plays homage to the kinship we feel with the bands we grew up with and the community we come from. Through our commitment to high quality musical arrangements, we pay tribute to the history and culture of the tradition. We believe in the light-hearted, community-building spirit steeldrums have brought to New England and are passionate about strengthening this tradition in Portland.
