About
BANANA OIL PAN BAND: The Banana Oil Pan Band is a steel pan band (steel drums) specializing in Caribbean, Calypso, island, and other styles of music including well known jazz, Latin, and popular tunes all played on steel pans. We do covers by artist such as Jimmy Buffett, Santana, Little Village, John Hiatt, Ry Cooder, Paul Simon, Jobim, Andy Nerall, David Rudder, Roy Orbison, Harry Belafonte, Freddy Hubbert, Spyro Gyro, Jaco Pastorius, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Lord Kitchener. Most of our material has an island feel, however, we are dedicated to the philosophy that any kind of music can be played on the pans. Christmas performances on pan are especially inspiring.

STEEL PANS: Pans are unique musical instruments, developed in Trinidad & Tobago in the late 1940's. They are made from discarded 55 gal steel drums and are often called "steel drums". Regardless of what name is used, it is the delightfully unique sound that is unforgettable. If you have visited the Caribbean, you are probably familiar with pans and the festive melodies and rhythms associated with calypso pan music. This music is appropriate for any occasion where people intend to be entertained and have a good time. Luaus, pool parties, block parties, fundraisers, art fairs and festivals, birthday parties, weddings, anniversaries, business or social conventions, picnics and luncheons are especially good candidates.

BAND CONFIGURATIONS: The Banana Oil Pan Band usually consist of 5 members. Two pan players (Skip & Gary), a lead vocalist & percussionist (Shea), bass (Walter) & drums (Loyd). However, we can modify this configuration to meet your desires and/or budget. We often perform as a quartet, or duet. The quartet consist of 2 pan players, bass & drums. The duet consist of 2 pan players, and backing tracks (band in a box). There is singing available in all configurations (Shea & Gary) - or - we can do total instrumental performances if desired. The size of the band is often increases, adding pan players, horns, guitars, hula dancers, etc as desired. We can, and have, provided 2 distinct bands for one performance. All of the members are professional musicians and all play in other bands. With the addition a one or two musicians, we can morph from a pan band to a blues, jazz, country, or classic rock band.

Not only did they play the Caribbean music we fell in love with several years ago --- but if one closes their eyes they will relive the memories all over again. The instrumental and singing was fantastic !! We will definitely see them again when we have another party.

The Banana Oil Pan Band was awesome! I would highly recommend them to anyone. They played for our school fundraiser with about 400 people. They not only sounded amazing, but they had great communication and were very accommodating to our group/setting.
