On April 27, 2014, I hosted “Massive Band 2014” at the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music at CSULB with guest artist Andy Narell. Massive Band featured over 100 steel pan performers on one stage, including:

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).

It was an honor to direct this group and share the stage with Andy Narell (not to mention him soloing on a tune I wrote!).
