Desert Winds Steel Orchestra

Saturday, Oct. 8

What started as an 8 member steel band back in the fall of 1997, the Desert Winds Steel Orchestra has now grown to 15+ members who have discovered the joy of music making in an ensemble setting. This diverse group of members has not only grown in numbers, but in skill at a remarkable rate. Their repertoire includes Latin and pop songs and an array of island tunes that will create an atmosphere of pure joy regardless of the setting in which they are playing. Their appeal to audiences of all ages led them to be repeatedly invited to perform at Ak-Chin Pavilion, formerly known as Cricket Pavilion, to entertain the crowd of party-goers prior to performances by the immensely popular Jimmy Buffett, as well as the annual Rock-N-Roll Marathon in Phoenix.
