There were many nice comments on the Volcano Island music during and after the event---fun music for a poolside event.

Sean and his band have also performed numerous times at every major resort in the Phoenix area including the Scottsdale Princess, The Boulders Resort, The Valley Ho, Arizona Biltmore, The Camelback Inn, The Phoenician, the Arizona Grand Resort, and the J.W. Marriott at Desert Ridge.
Sean and his band have performed at events with attendance as small as ten people or as large as one thousand people. For smaller engagements, Sean can perform as a solo musician on steel drums by playing along with prerecorded music tracks. Or, for more energy and variety, there is the option of adding additional live instruments such as the tenor pan steel drum, double second steel drums, triple-cello steel drums, guitar, congas, keyboard, marimba, vibes, a horn section, or drum set by adding one or more members of Sean's band "Volcano". If you are looking for a way to turn your event into a great event, Sean Mireau and the Volcano Island Band is the band to have!

What are steel drums? Steel drums are 55-gallon oil barrels that have been hammered and shaped by hand into acoustic musical instruments. They originated on the Caribbean island of Trinidad in the early 1950s, often have a chrome finish, can range in price from $500 to $5,000, and must be re-tuned regularly.
