How did you come up with your band name? The name was a play on the Steel Drums or pans our band’s sound is known for. We wanted to make sure we kept the “steel” in there and thought that because we are known for playing outside in the sun where we feel as if we are “fried like an egg,” the reference would be appropriate.
If you were to describe yourself in one sentence …what would you say? Tropical Rock… where the sounds take you to a place where you are sitting on the beach watching the sunset sipping on a cocktail with a little umbrella.
Do you have any other hobbies besides, obviously, making music? Steve Tove, outside of music, loves playing softball and referees for girls’ high school lacrosse. The other two members are true musicians and don’t have any real hobbies outside of music.
What’s your most embarrassing experience? Our most embarrassing experience is when one of us messes up musically on a note or in a key. Most times the audience will never know, but being musicians, we hear it and will taunt each other unmercifully.
