One of the oldest steel band in the country, the band originated in Barbados in the 1950s moved to the UK after Hallam Ifill immigrated to these shores with the remaining members following shortly after.
They settled in Bath and began performing under the name of the Barbados All Stars.
Rainbow is the oldest black & minority ethnic community organisation based in Bath and since its inception Rainbow has gained National & International recognition, playing for Royalty, touring Europe and the Caribbean. Rainbow was fortunate enough to return to its Bajan roots for a tour in 1984.
The current line-up includes the legendary Earl Rodney who has been with Rainbow since 1992, taking the band to a new dimension in playing and arranging.
