Notes

The US Navy Steel Band, organized in 1957, has the distinction of being the only military steel band. They aided in exposing the American public to steel band music, and ushering it through the calypso and exotica crazes of the 1950s and 60s. The Steel Band was particularly popular on national variety shows and appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1958 and 1959. They also appeared on the Adventure Tomorrow series for CBS in 1960. From 1957 - 1970 they released a total of 11 albums and helped bring the music of the Caribbean Islands to the fore of the American populous.
