Mangrove biography This Dutch prog-rock band took root in '95 when schoolboy friends Roland van der Horst (guitar and vocals) and Joost Hagemeijer (drums and keyboards) teamed up and started to write their own compositions. In '98 they released the album "Cold World" as a project titled Brainstorm. Two years later singer Eric Holdtman joined Roland and Joost, but unfortunately left in 2001 due to personal circumstances. In 2005 the band released the album "Facing the Sunset", which contains four compositions (between 10 and 21 minutes) evoking the good old days from mid-GENESIS, early HACKETT solo and early IQ. Especially the wonderful Mellotron samples (produced by a special sophisticated computer program) and the beautiful, very sensitive electric guitar work are strong points in MANGROVE's pleasant symphonic rock sound.
The Mangrove Steelband is one of the most prominent in Europe. Formed in 1980 from a ‘Pan Round Neck’ group of the traditional type we have established ourselves as a fully-fledged modern orchestra. With an enormous following of supporters we are one of the largest/most travelled and most professional Steelbands in Britain. Eight times winners of Panorama, the UK’s National Steel pan competition. The band was born out of the vision and determination of Trinidadian’s living in the Notting Hill area in a quest to introduce the culture of Steelband and Carnival to the local youths of their community, thus ensuring the Caribbean art forms were handed down from generation to generation. A core element of twenty dedicated players rehearse and perform all year round.
Noise is a problem for the Mangrove Steel Band. There are occasions when the 70 players are too quiet. The band is capable of putting out about 100 decibels in full flow - the equivalent of a tuneful motorcyle engine - but in recent years this has been insufficient at the Notting Hill Carnival. The band, which will deploy 20 of its players on a float at this year’s carnival, has found that it is increasingly being drowned out by amplified music played ahead of them in the parade.
