New England's premier Steel Band — Calypso, Reggae, Motown
and more!

"N.H.'s Best Steel Band!"

So said New Hampshire Magazine in their June 2005 issue, about Mango Groove, our authentic steel band featuring the uplifting Caribbean sound of traditional steel pans.

Our pan ensemble consists of a full range of steel pans — lead pan, alto pans, guitar pans and bass pans — to which we add a conventional drum set and an array of traditional percussion instruments. The result is a full, rich sound with the infectious rhythm that only a steel band can create.


Listen to
Mango Groove!
   From our CD "Flavor"


 

We always play a variety of dance music— calypso, reggae, jazz, motown, and more—all with a true Caribbean flavor.

Our performances and workshops include Afro-Caribbean drumming and dance, and the audience is always invited to "jump up" ... learn the dances, do the Limbo, join in with the fun.

A new world of rhythm,
melody and movement
... all part of the Mango Groove experience!


"Mango Groove's sound consists of rich dulcet tones over a complexity of soft rhythms ... a beautiful and tightly arranged selection of traditional and popular tunes."
Conway Daily Sun

"What a fantastic performance ... our students are on fire with the idea of starting their own steel band ... the first time I've seen a standing ovation after an assembly!"
