An innovative steelband and unique community
Metronomes & The virtual panyard
Metronomes is a family. We come together and support each other in times of difficulty. We know that this is an anxious time for people, but we are determined to support everybody in the Metronomes family, and we know you will all support each other.
There is a full statement by Eversley on the temporary closure of the panyard.

About Metronomes Steel Orchestra
Metronomes is an innovative steelband and unique community based in Ladbroke Grove, West London. We teach and perform steelpan music, promote Caribbean heritage, and run projects to benefit local people.
Metronomes was formed in 1973 by Phil Dubique and Irvin Corridan, and is currently lead by Eversley “Breeze” Mills. Our panyard has been in Meanwhile Gardens, Ladbroke Grove, since 1989. We have over 2000 members in our extended family living in North Kensington and the surrounding area.
Metronomes plays an important role in the local Caribbean community. It brings families together, helping to reduce social isolation especially amongst the elderly and single parents.
Metronomes is especially good at involving people not involved in education or other arts activities and has a long history of working with people who have frequent contact with the criminal justice system.
A large number of young people who attend Metronomes go on to university and it has helped produce a generation of architects, athletes and doctors. However, we are resolutely focused on involving all young people, including those struggling in life. Metronomes leaves no one behind.
