Steel Band

Wynberg Boys' High School Steel Band

Wynberg Boys’ High School Steel Band performs at “Music at the Manor” on the Wynberg Estate

From its humble beginnings some ten years or so ago, our Steel Band has become so popular with the boys that we now have three bands – the Senior, Intermediate and Junior bands – all of which are trained by Mr Keenan Oliphant, a Wynberg Old Boy (2009). He learnt to play the Steel Drums whilst at school but his passion and flair for music soon put him at the head of the band and the band itself on a new and exciting path. The bands are now venturing into new territory for Steel Drums, with Keenan doing all the arrangements himself, keeping the bands right up to date with contemporary music in addition to the old favourites. He also writes new pieces for the bands which have been very well received.

These bands are in great demand and perform regularly at both school and community functions.

2011 Highlights
• Both the Senior and Junior Steel Bands were awarded High Diplomas at the 2011 Eisteddfod.
