OK*2*Botay, which means “okay to dance,” is a steel drum band for youth between grades 6 and 12 from Tri-Cities, Washington.
They are a remarkable group of young performers directed by Ben Leggett, who arranges and writes their music. Members are selected in an annual audition process, primarily from students who have taken classes with the Tri-Cities Steel Band Association (http://tcsba.org). OK*2*Botay practices weekly and performs many times throughout the year. The band performs throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond. You can expect delightful, energetic music that will make you want to join in and dance!
OK2Botay has a great music set that gets their audiences dancing. Here are some of our current favorites:
- Pirates of the Caribbean
- Hot, Hot, Hot
- Day Tripper (Beatles)
- Smooth Criminal (Michael Jackson)
