Steel Drum Band

The Westminster High School Steel Drum Band started in 1998 when John Whatley talked the booster club into purchasing the first steel drums, 2 tenors and 2 double seconds.  The group has now grown to include 6 tenors, 3 double seconds, 2 double guitars, and 2 sets of six bass. Recently we performed with the CSULB and Cabrillo High School Steel Drum ensembles and had a wonderful time. The steel drum was the only acoustic instrument invented in the 20th century and being constructed from oil drums they have a distinct sound that many love.
