Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music

Last night I went to an awesome pan show in Toronto put on by the Pan Arts Network. There were four bands, Gemini Pan Groove, Panatics, Pan Fantasy and Afropan playing songs like Ol' Man River, All of Me, Bridge Over Troubled Waters, and I Believe I Can Fly. The pan performances were punctuated by unforgettable vocal performances, and drumming and dance displays. The Pan Pioneer Award was presented to Layne Clarke and the Woman in Pan Award was presented to Eulinice Clarke. The M.C., Itah Sadu performed spectacularly as usual.
Congratulations to the Pan Arts Network on such a very entertaining spectacle.

I look forward to their next event, Gospel Praise on Steel on Saturday April 18, 2015.

I too attended the Snowflakes On Steel 18th Annual Steelband Showcase at the HO Theatre Chinese Cultural Centre in Toronto.  What an amazing evening of Pan music, vocals, Sax, drums and dance!!!   Much praises to the organization of Pan Arts Network (P.A.N.) and the arrangers, especially Kwesi Hypolite for 'Going Home' played by Panatics Steeband, beautifully done........ Hats off to Wendy Jones and Earl La Pierre Jr. and P.A.N. for a good job well done.

Long Live Pan
