Lovely Thank You Note for Isa Arfen Show

Dear Terry,

Thank you SO MUCH for being part of my first show!

Your performance brought so much joy, soul, emotion and good vibes!

You sounded incredible and everyone, from the audience to the models and all of us behind the scenes absolutely loved it!

Thank you again and I hope to work together again in the future!

A big hug to all of the Melodians Steel Orchestra!


London Fashion Week – Isa Arfen Show

The London Fashion Week – Isa Arfen Show this week was fantastic, the designs were great and the response from the audience was tremendous.  Here is a small section of the event which shows part of the Cat Walk with the Melodians clearly seen playing at the back of the hall.  A great experience for the Melodians.  No logos were allowed.


Giglist for 2018 is Growing

Melodians’ engagements for 2018 are beginning to come in and look very interesting.

On February 20th the Melodians will be playing for one of the Catwalk shows for the London Fashion week.  The Melodians will be playing as the models do their Catwalk.  We are very busy rehearsing for this to ensure a perfect performance.

We are also delighted to have been invited again to play at the BT Ball in Aid of Sports Relief in May.  This event takes place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane.

In July, the Melodians will be taking part in the Art Night 2018 event somewhere around Battersea Power Station.  Exact location still to be confirmed and the exact programme still to be defined.  However, it will definitely be an exciting event where the Melodians will be teamed up with an artist for a joint project.  You know how much we enjoy doing that!  We are all looking forward to it.

Apart from that we have a wedding that was booked in 2016 after we performed at a wedding held in that year.

We will be reverting to a Christmas Concert this year instead of October and that has been booked for 15th December.

Still waiting for an overseas trip to be confirmed.  Sure Terry’s efforts will come to fruition.  A number of likely events being discussed.  Watch this space.

Trinidad Melodians in grounds of Royal Festival Hall 1987

If you have watched our 30th Anniversary video you will have seen a few seconds of the Trinidad Melodians performing in the grounds of the Royal Festival Hall during their visit to the UK and the Isle of Man in 1987.  It was this visit that prompted Terry Noel to form the Melodians Steel Orchestra UK in October 1987.  Well here is the full recording of the Trinidad Melodians performance of ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ by Tina Turner.

We hope you enjoy it (sorry about the slight hiccup in the middle but it was recorded over 30 years ago).
