University of Akron Steel Drum Band

The music of Trinidad and Tobago, played to perfection on steel drums, summons feelings of endless summers in the sand. And as winter syphons the vitamin D out of Ohioans, the University of Akron Steel Drum Band presents a sonic substitute for UV rays with a performance of joyous melodies straight from the Caribbean. 

Founded by Dr. Larry Snider in 1980—when it was one of the only three college steel drum bands in the country—the University of Akron Steel Drum Band has since perfected the art of the aural vacation. With over 20 percussion majors playing on steel pans crafted by master tuner and composer Cliff Alexis, the group gets audiences moving with their enthusiastic, educational live performances. And as a troupe that truly does their homework, it’s the first U.S. ensemble to travel to Trinidad to learn techniques from local musical masters. The band has also performed for President Bill Clinton, and scored a Grammy nomination for the CD Live at E.J. Thomas Hall.

About Akron Civic Theatre

The medieval carvings, European antiques, and Italian alabaster sculptures at the Akron Civic Theatre absorb the ascending harmonies of symphony concerts and heavy rock ‘n’ roll alike. Built in 1929 to resemble a Moorish castle, the venue has maintained much of its historic charm, including the exceedingly rare atmospheric ceiling, in which stars twinkle and clouds float by as mesmerizingly as the last few corn flakes atop a bowl of milk.
