Sonic Steel is one of the most
exciting steelbands in Denmark, Europe right now. The band
convincingly combines the qualities of larger, traditional
steelbands with the lightness and manageable size known from bands
consisting of ordinary instruments.
Sonic Steel consists of 6 professional musicians from various areas
of the Danish rock-, jazz-, and steelband scenes. They play four
sets of steelpans together with bass and drums.
Sonic Steel's repertoire outlines a broad perspective from
traditional steelband compositions from the Caribbean world, through
soft bossa novas to hot jazz arrangements and other delicacies. This
is why Sonic Steel is very suitable for many different types of
events from Caribbean parties to more subdued receptions.

Sonic Steel was formed in 2002 and is led by Sune
Borregaard who is also the arranger. It is composed of the
finest steel pan players in Denmark.
Three of us met up in a music school steelband back in 1989, and we
met the girls at the music studies department of Copenhagen
The double bass player has recently been added to the group (last
summer) and replaced an electrical bass.
