IONIA STEEL BAND
In 2005, the Meijer Corporation donated $15,000 to the Ionia Band Boosters. This donation allowed the creation of the Ionia Steel Drum Band. We are very thankful to Meijer for their support. We encourage you to sign up for a Meijer Rewards card to help the Ionia Band Boosters support this outstanding ensemble.
The personnel for the band are made up of Ionia high school band students.
The steel band spent the summer of 2009 performing at various venues around the state, traveling as far as Caseville, MI to perform at the "Cheeseburger In Paradise Festival".
In the spring of 2007, the Ionia Steel Band finished recording their first CD entitled "Steel 'N' Time". Tunes on the disk include Brown Eyed Girl, Oye Como Va, and many more. These are for sale for $10.
The band is available for hire and will travel. Cost varies due to distance traveled and performance time.
If you are interested in a CD or hiring the group, please contact Scott Beyer at email@example.com or by calling 989-944-1266.
