The Skiffle Bunch Steelband was formed in 1977 as a Traditional or 'Pan Around the Neck' band by a group of young people from Vistabella, some of whom were previously with the Sundowners Steelband. Skiffle Bunch won the Traditional Band Panorama competition eight times (1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988) and placed second four times (1981, 1982, 1983, 1984). Under the leadership of Junia Regrello, the band became a Conventional Band in 1993 and went on to make the Large Steelband Panorama Finals in 1995 (6th), 1996 (10th), 1997 (5th), 2013 (5th), 2014, (7th-Tied), 2015 (10th), 2016 (10th), 2017 (7th) and 2018 (2nd), . . The band rose to prominence in 2000 by winning the Steelband Music Festival.
