The Orlando Power Stars Steel Orchestra was founded by Leo James and Leon Jones in 1990.
and Mr. Jones had been playing steelpan in the Central Florida area prior to starting the band.
They noticed that people who watched them play were very interested in learning and Mr. James
decided that he
wanted to start a steelband in order to teach the community's youth how to play.
From that idea the Orlando Power Stars Steel Orchestra
Mr. James still serves today as the band captain, and Mr. Jones is the arranger.
