Leave the winter blues behind and escape to the rhythms of the Caribbean with The University of Akron Steel Drum Band. The University of Akron Steel Drum Band was founded in 1980 by Dr. Larry Snider. At the time, it was one of only three colleges in the U.S. to have a steel drum ensemble. All of the University's steel drums are built and maintained by Cliff Alexis. The band is comprised of undergraduate and graduate percussion students. Students perform in the ensemble as a requirement for their degree program along with the percussion ensemble and other musical groups.
