Launched in October of 2017, The Port Townsend Steel Bands are community-based, beginning and intermediate Caribbean Steel Bands. Our mission is to learn Caribbean rhythms and songs in a fun, relaxed environment while making new friends and sharing the enchanting sounds of the steelpans with our community.
