IPTC INFO
CaptionThe Sounshouse is an integral part of Estover Community College on the sprawling windswept seventies estate of Estover tagged 'little Siberia' on the outskirts of Plymouth. In 1991 Phil Spurr - a Youth and Community Tutor - asked Dave Perrett the school's Head of Music whether he had any ideas for a project which might stir up a bit of action. And although Dave was only half- serious when he suggested a steel band Phil followed it up by bringing in some professionals from the field and establishing an immediate rapport. ***** Toussaint Clarke tuner and arranger and Dave Perrett director and arranger have both early influenced the band through their support enthusiasm and practically obsessive dedication as have many other groups and individuals who are too numerous to mention here. ***** Real Steel is now firmly established as one of Europe is top youth steel bands. With an intensive tour schedule embracing major festivals venues and live events its work attracts immense media interest. ***** Backed by professional input from tuner/maker Toussaint Clarke - a Bajan and highly regarded steel pan musician - and under the directorship of founder Dave Perrett Real Steel has become a potent symbol of the Soundhouse's success. Real Steel's music is superb dynamic and distinctive and presented in a devastatingly good-looking style.
