Sean Mireau and the Volcano Island Band have been entertaining audiences in the Southwest United States for over 20 years. They create a lively and festive atmosphere by performing live calypso/island/luau/reggae/steel drum music. Sean and other members of his band play authentic hand-made steel drums imported from the Caribbean. They have over 400 songs on their song list but some of their most requested songs include Red Red Wine, Jamaica Farewell, Coconut Woman, Stir it Up, Island in the Sun, One Love, Jump in the line, Yellow Bird, and Under the Sea. During the holiday season Sean and his band can also play songs like Jingle Bells, Deck the Halls, Feliz Navidad, Let it Snow, Christmas Island, and Mele Kalikimaka. They have performed at events with attendance as small as ten people or as large as one thousand people. Sean and his band have performed for Arizona Governor Jane Hull, Phoenix Mayors Terry Goddard, Phil Gordon, and Greg Stanton, musicians Glenn Campbell and Alice Cooper, the Seattle Sounders MLS Soccer Team, and members of the Chicago Cubs, San Francisco Giants, California Angels, and Seattle Mariners baseball teams. They have provided live musical entertainment for countless wedding receptions, birthday parties, New Year's Eve parties, anniversary parties, pool parties, cocktail parties, office parties, Christmas parties, grand openings, and large and small events of all kind. Sean and his band have performed numerous times at every major resort in the Phoenix area including the Arizona Biltmore, The Camelback Inn, The Phoenician, the Ritz Carlton, and the J.W. Marriot at Desert Ridge. They have also performed at events and venues such as the Glendale Glitters Holiday Spectacular, the Chandler Ostrich Festival, the Tempe Festival of the Arts, the Phoenix Zoo, the Desert Botanical Gardens, the Scottsdale Center for the Arts, University of Phoenix Stadium, and Veteran's Memorial Coliseum.

For smaller engagements, Sean often performs as a solo musician on steel drums by playing along with prerecorded music tracks. Or, for more energy and variety, there is the option of adding additional live instruments such as the tenor pan steel drum, double second steel drums, triple-cello steel drums, guitar, congas, keyboard, marimba, vibes, or drum set by adding one or more members of Sean's band "Volcano". If you are looking for a way to turn your event into a great event, Sean Mireau and the Volcano Island Band is the way to go!


Sean Mireau has been performing as a professional musician since he was 14 years old. For him, playing music is not a hobby or something he does in his spare time, like it is for many "musicians". Sean has invested thousands of hours and thousands of dollars in order to provide the highest quality service he possibly can. He has spent thousands of hours transcribing songs, creating custom musical arrangements, and learning to play the steel drums and other instruments. Sean plays the tenor pan steel drum, the double-second steel drums, double-guitar steel drums, ukulele, marimba, vibes, timpani, drum set, congas, and numerous Latin percussion instruments. The steel drums Sean plays are authentic hand-made instruments imported from the Caribbean island of Trinidad. Sean has spent 20 years searching for and obtaining the highest quality steel drums he possibly can and personally owns over 25 drums. He started playing steel drums in 1992 as a member of the Arizona State University "Pandevils" steel drum band. Sean is a degreed musician having studied music at Central Arizona College and Arizona State University. While studying music at ASU, Sean performed in over 50 concerts and recitals as a soloist and as a member of the ASU Jazz Band, Percussion Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, New Music Ensemble, Steel Drum Band, and numerous jazz combos. Sean has toured the United States and performed as a member of the Sunset Regiment Drum and Bugle Corps from Tucson, Arizona and as a member of the Velvet Knights Drum and Bugle Corps from Anaheim, California. Sean has performed in 23 states nationally and his international performance locations include Canada, Turkey, Italy, Greece, and Spain.

What are steel drums? Steel drums are 55-gallon drums or oil barrels that have been hammered and shaped by hand into musical instruments. They originated on the Caribbean island of Trinidad in the early 1950s, often have a chrome finish, can range in price from $500 to $5,000, and must be tuned regularly.

Sean is awesome to work with. He is on time, professional, courteous and extremely accommodating. I HIGHLY recommend him. Many of my guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music while they visited with other guests. Sean set the perfect tone/atmosphere for an enjoyable 90th Birthday party!

Sean is absolutely wonderful! Living in Florida we hear a variety of steel drum / island music and Sean is as talented, if not better than the best we have heard. We had a small, family celebration and he was the perfect addition to the party. We highly recommend and hope to have a reason to come to Phoenix to use him again! Thank you, Sean!

Volcano Island performed at my company's 15 year anniversary celebration, and the guests attending came from all over the world (US, China, India etc). Two weeks before the event (forgot to book entertainment...oops!), we scrambled to try to find a Calypso/Steel Drum Band (and probably sent out 50+ quote requests!). Many bands did not want to play on a Thursday night. No problem for Volcano Island! Sean Mireau and the other two members of the band accommodated all of our needs and did an outstanding job! The guests loved the vibe their music gave off. They are very professional, communicating with Sean was very easy, and overall outstanding. Highly recommend!
