Steelin’ the Night Away

Phoenix Steel Drum Band

Traditional calypso and Caribbean music favorites, light rock classics, golden oldies and beach/surf tunes from the 60’s will get your next party moving. They are unique among steel drum artists - they are all female! STNA‘s members consist of 7 women, all self-taught amateur musicians, who are crazy about the sound of this Caribbean-style pan drum instrument.

In addition to being all-female, they are unique in another aspect: they are an all-volunteer group that donates its earnings to charity. Over the years, they have donated thousands of dollars to the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation, holiday Adopt-A-Families, Meals on Wheels, church-related charities, and needy individuals.

Abyssinia is a gifted belly dancer of improvisation. And she is a doctor!
