Steel Pulse, the internationally acclaimed reggae band who began life in the back streets of Birmingham, England in the early Seventies are still very much alive today, nearly thirty years later. The band are renowned for their commitment to their musical message of fighting injustice, educating the masses and creating positive forces. They take their music around the globe and have a worldwide following.

Here's some photos from the band's recent and more distant past to enjoy [click to enlarge]. I welcome any photographs taken by fans and friends of Steel Pulse, who would like to post their special moments onto this webpage.
