The Kent State University Steel Band (RPM Steel Band) was founded in 2016 by Ted & Tyler Rounds. As the newest of the School’s world music ensembles, the band primarily performs on campus, and has recently participated in the Virtual Steelband II project. The repertoire of the steel band includes numerous forms of Trinidadian and American musics. The steel band is open to undergraduate and graduate students, regardless of major or musical background.
