Steel Band Set to Bring the Caribbean to Gibraltar’s Ocean Village
Denmark may be far from tropical, yet it has produced one of the finest steel bands on the circuit – the “Steel Hammers”. The 12-piece ensemble will be bringing a flavour of the Caribbean to Gibraltar’s Ocean Village on Monday 18 July at 9pm.
Hailing from the Allerød Music School, in a small Danish town just north of Copenhagen, the Steel Hammers are a young, energetic group with an average age of just 26. Covering a wide repertoire of calypso, cha cha, mambo and more, you’ll recognise some of your favourites from Santana to Stevie Wonder and even Jean-Michel Jarre played out on authentic acoustic steel drums.
As audiences in Berlin, Munich, Rotterdam, Paris, Nice, Barcelona, Verona, Florence and Málaga will testify, it’s almost impossible not to move your feet to the contagious beats of the Steel Hammers. The atmosphere is warm and sociable and, the more you dance, the better they play.

About Ocean Village - Gibraltar's Ocean Village is fast-gathering a reputation for being the rising star in the superyacht arena and is now competing with the most established marinas across the Mediterranean.
Located on the west side of Gibraltar, Ocean Village is the most sheltered marina in the region with close-up views of Africa some 14km across the Straits. As the ‘gateway to the Mediterranean’
Aside from geography, the Rock itself has obvious appeal to yacht owners. Gibraltar has Cat 1 Red Ensign Group status, EU membership and is the most important ship refuelling point in the Mediterranean thanks to cut-price fuel. It also has a favourable system of taxation (including no VAT), a no surprises legal system based on the UK and pound sterling as its currency.
