It is hard to believe that over a year ago on Sunday, April 27, 2014, I hosted the Massive Band 2014 Steel Drum Concert at CSULB. It was an amazing concert featuring over 100 steel pan performers (see the list below). This video features steel pan virtuoso Andy Narell on a tune I wrote (shameless self-promotion alert) called PanSon.

The groups featured are:
CSULB STEEL DRUM ORCHESTRA (Dave Gerhart – director)
CABRILLO HIGH SCHOOL PANJAMMAS (Drew Holt – director)
CAMPBELL HALL SOLDIERS OF STEEL (HIGH SCHOOL) & STEEL PANDAS (JUNIOR HIGH) (Jason Bruns – director)
GRANADA MIDDLE SCHOOL PAN SQUAD (Jennifer Stampfl – director)
LAKEWOOD STEEL (Amanda Duncan – director)
RUSTY STEEL BAND (Andy Cobbs – director)
WESTMINSTER HIGH SCHOOL STEEL BAND (John Whatley – director)

Have a great weekend!
