The El Bekal Shrine Steel Band is a young Unit, being chartered the 13th day of October, 1986. The Steel Band is one of the smallest Units in El Bekal – number of members will not exceed 20, in all probability. They meet every Tuesday, from 2-4pm at the Shrine Center for meetings and practices.
This is not a marching Unit. They participate in Shrine functions at the will and pleasure of the Potentate. A potential member need not be a musician, but must be willing to take lessons to play one of the instruments in the Steel Band. Dues are $100.00 per year and our Initiation Fee is $100.00. Ask any member of the Band for additional information as to costumes, instruction, and instrument costs.
Call the Shrine office (714) 563-9111and they will give you the name and number of their Secretary.
