This band is unique, completely original, and peerless in Colorado. Rick Henson, founder of Rocky Mountain Steel Bands, formed this ensemble (comprised of four pan players, percussion, drum set, vocals [optional]) when he recognized that steel pan drums are universally regarded as intriguing, fascinating, and beautiful instruments -- yet they are confined to traditional "tropical" tunes. Urban Island utilizes the versatility of these melodious drums in performing favorite pop classics, light modern rock, and dance-able Caribbean folk tunes.
Urban Island functions well with 5-7 musicians depending on your budget and stage size. No matter what your event, Urban Island is sure to heat things up!
Rick Henson: Director / Lead Pannist
Jimmy Buffet, Bob Marley, Harry Belafonte, Andy Narell, Pan Ramajay
