How much do Essex Steel Bands cost?
Steel Bands in Essex cost from £368 to £769. The average price in 2022 was £578. Prices vary depending on experience, demand, size of act, travel costs and the specs of the equipment provided. Artists travelling into Essex from further away will usually charge more than a local act due to travel time and fuel costs.
We will always do our best to help you find Steel Bands on your budget, so please give us a call if you can't find what you're looking for.
On the rare occasion that we don't have an artist based within your area, we will always have artists in the neighbouring regions willing to travel.
