Happy Music for Every Occasion. Guaranteed.

Jahbutu plays festivals Australia wide and internationally.

"I think we always get invited back to the festivals we've played because we are versitile, we can headline, support, rove, do street theatre and give drumming and percussion workshops" says frontman Alvin Rostant,Australias premier steel drum musician and director of The Caribbean Arts Company.We seem to be every event organizers favourite band to hire as we are flexible.

"Its a fantastic feeling" says Alvin "Jahbutu always seems to get the crowd dancin', its our trademark." Jahbutu prides itself on giving a colourful stage act and getting the audience hyped.The music is uptempo, energetic and dancible.

Great for Jahbutu as they love giving that something extra to their audiences. "I feel that the festival crowds want a bit of excitment as well as quality music" says Alvin. At one venue recently the audience was in the main street which was packed for 2 kilometers. When Jahbutu sang "Step to the Left"-the whole street stepped to the left-it was an amazing sight from the stage- all the band was stunned.

Festivals suit Jahbutu's style and heritage-the Carnival in Trinidad is all about connecting and interaction with the audience.

The drumming workshops have really taken off recently as the students can play a song in a couple of hours. Jahbutu loves giving back to the community and as all equipment is provided its a wonderful way to introduce kidsand adults to the world of steel drums and music. Jahbutu is different to most bands because of the unique steel drum.

Alvin and The Jahbutu Band-Happy Music for Every Occasion. Guaranteed.
