Today’s video features eight year old Andy Narell and the Steel Bandits on I’ve Got a Secret from February 28, 1963. While the game show portion of this video is humorous, it great to see Andy playing pans in 1963. Make sure you check out the end of the video! The group is featured playing a calypso on what are now know as “old pans.” There are not many videos of these instruments and it is great that they were featured on network television.

What are your thoughts on this video? Have you ever played an old pan or found one at a garage sale? Leave your comments below.

For more information on Andy Narell, visit his website. Andy’s recordings are some of the top steel drum recordings available.
