Ebony Steelband - no. 1 in Europe!

Looking to promote the image of your organisation or business ? Consider sponsorship with Ebony Steelband.

Ebony is considered to be the best steelband in Europe and tours regularly in the UK and internationally. Ebony is also a household name amongst the Britain’s black community and rewarded for its valuable community work. Ebony has also a good track record of successful sponsorship and partner schemes from previous years.

Partnering with Ebony will give you the opportunity to associate your brand with all that is best about black Britain and its links with the Caribbean. You will also have the opportunity to have your brand exposed to thousands of spectators around the world – in venues and events which might not be accessible otherwise – for example in 2006 Ebony performed in high exposure events like the Fifa World Cup Championships in Germany. The band has also been performing in events and venues like the Cannes Film Festival and Buckingham Palace, as well as performed to the Royal Family of Morocco. In total Ebony undertakes up to 200 performances a year and tens of thousands of consumers see Ebony perform throughout the year.

Ebony annually takes part in the Notting Hill Carnival – one of the world’s biggest street carnivals. The carnival attracts up to two million people who all enjoy the multi-cultural atmosphere and the different cultural disciplines. The carnival is also a major tourist attraction. Ebony has usually a decorative carnival float which also carries banners. Ebony’s annual participation in Carnival is viewed and enjoyed by the hundreds of thousands of people who line the Carnival route.

Ebony enjoys a wide media coverage, which will give you further exposure to your brand in a positive way. Ebony is filmed annually by the BBC and enjoys widespread media coverage throughout the year - especially during Notting Hill Carnival. Ebony in performance is exuberant and so it is not surprising that it gains a lot of media attention. But part of the reason for Ebony's high media profile is that it is also media smart: always able to meet deadlines, it enjoys lasting relationships with journalists and producers in local, national and international press, online publications, radio and television.   

Aside from its musical accomplishments Ebony is an organisation that delivers a variety of activities for young people particularly those from the Afro-Caribbean community. Sponsorship allows Ebony to extend its artistic work and develop its rewarded community programmes.

Ebony can provide a wide range of benefits for its partners, ranging from media coverage to branding.
