Q. Why hire PanNeubean Steel Band?
A. QUALITY*ARTISTRY*PROFESSIONALISM - PanNeubean Steel
prides itself in being an
"authentic professional steel band". I play
steelpan and sing.
 Along with my Masters of Music degree from
the New England Conservatory, I also have 21 years of performance
experience as an Army Bandsman.  I take pride in showcasing my
Jamaican/Caribbean heritage.  Unlike many local steelbands we have
numerous video's that show our talent.  Don't be fooled by only
studio recordings or lack of live footage.  Each of our band
members have impressive resumes.

We arrive in time, we start on time, we are courteous, we dress
appropriately and we only leave behind "...an oasis of musical
moods..." that will keep you and your guests smiling for years to
come.

Q. Do you perform background music?
A. Yes, PanNeubean Steel provides and modifies it's
musical repetoire for all settings and so encourages
the use of steelpan for any type of event.
(It's 'exotic'....'fresh'...'new'...'cool')
Wedding, Cocktail Hour, Reception, Birthday,
Restaurant, Festival, Club, Cruise Ship Theme,
Caribbean Theme, Corporate and other events.


Q. How long have you been playing the Steelpan?
A. Because of my Jamaican-Caribbean roots and
my desire to be a part of my cultural heritage, I fell
in love and began playing the Steelpan more than 25 years ago.


Q. Why name the band PanNeubean Steel and how do you
pronounce it?
A. PanNeubean Steel pronounced (Pan-nü-be-an Ste-al) was created
to provide a musical outlet for the Steelpan.  The name is a
combination of the Steelpan’s recent invention and its Pan-African-
Caribbean origin.


Q. Does PanNeubean Steel perform styles other than
Caribbean music?
A. PanNeubean Steel was created to showcase the Steelpan’s
versatility.  While reggae, soca, and calypso are traditionally
'caribbean', we have incorporated a variety of musical styles into
our repertoire.  The Steelpan adds the Caribbean “spice”.  REGGAE,
SOCA, CALYPSO, CLASSICAL, JAZZ, FUSION, FUNK, ZYDECO, R&B,
CONTEMPORARY and LATIN.  In other words we "Caribbean-ize" a
spectrum of musical styles while still focusing on what is audibly
still caribbean.  Perfect for Caribbean Themed events.


Q. What are sequences or background tracks?  Does
PanNeubean Steel use them?
A. Sequences or backing tracks are pre-recorded recordings of a
band used to accompany a lead vocal or instrument.  They are
available so that vocalist, instrumentalist or in this case
PanNeubean Steel SOLO may play along with it to provide a fuller
band sound.  


Q. Do you perform for Fundraisers and Non-Profit
Organizations?
A.  Yes, we perform for both and periodically will decide to lower
our rates as a way to donate some of our time and musical talent
to a worthy cause.  But, please do not assume that "we will" or that
"we should" make any free contributions on your behalf.  


Q.  What are your rates?
A.  Our rates are based on numerous details, but generally range
between $300-$3500/SOLO-QUINTET.

Travel distance, type of event, number of guests, sound
reinforcement required and performance length are all considered.  
We also take pride in our continued dedication to Quality,
Professionalism and Artistry.  
We are not just your average sort
of caribbean band comprised of members who dabble in
caribbean music.
 All of our band members have years of life
experience:  
Boston Carnival, Steel orchestra, Caribbean
roots/decent/heritage, Trinidad Carnival, Reggae Festivals,
backfill for Reggae/Soca/Calypso Recording Artists, Touring,
recording, teaching music from Kindergarten to college level...
etc.
