About Us

Our Amazing World of Pan!


The Pan Association began with a goal to spread the joy of steel drum music through education and live performance. We started out in Denver, Colorado as music students collaborating and playing various styles of music on the steel drum, not just calypso and Caribbean tunes, but also pop and fusion. The band has always appeared at events in various configurations, from a solo pan player providing background music at the cocktail hour, all the way up to the full quintet rocking dance music at a cookout, wedding, or summer festival. The full band is at its finest when we bring in our sax or flute player to add another texture to the performance. Various members come and go, as is true with any band that sticks around, but our core members and close musical allies will always continue to perform together and stay true to this amazing instrument’s strong cultural background.

TPA offers live performances, clinics, master classes, and lessons for groups and individuals of all types and ages. We have 2 locations, serving the Denver, Colorado area as well as Virginia Beach, Virginia. This website will serve as an outlet to learn more about the steel drum, to book the band for performances or band members for lessons, as well as a musical discussion area with our new blog section! (I personally plan to bombard our blog session with random pan thoughts and late night musings…)
