About Potts & Pans Steelband

Potts & Pans Steel Ensemble is a professional-level steel band. Comprised of musicians that were trained in steelpan performance at Northern Illinois University, we are not your typical beach band.

Our ability to play a wide range of genres makes us perfect for:

Birthday Parties

Weddings (have a unique wedding band for your service and reception!)

Graduation Parties

Retirement Parties

Parades

Fairs

Public Events

and more!

    I always wanted a steel drum band for my big day. And it was a fabulous accent to my cocktail hour.

    This review is long overdue. First let me say, Potts and Pans are PHENOMENAL:). My husband is Haitian and I’m Trinidadian and from the moment we got engaged, I knew I wanted a ‘panman’ at our wedding. We hired Matt, Christina and Anthony to play during our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour and I’m sooooo happy that we did. They had our wedding guests singing and hyped up for the reception, and they even got the older folks (like my parents and the in laws) dancing which was awesome!! I could hear the singing and the music from the ceremony room while the hubby and I took pics and wanted to hustle so I could get some food and join the party:). Throughout our wedding preparations, there was never a time where we were worried about what Matt and his team would perform for us. After we heard them play Lucy and Happiest man alive at our initial meeting, it definitely sealed the deal for us. Our wedding guests were mostly young 20-30something Caribbean people, and the only requirement for Matt and his team was that the music be recent, festive and recognizable to our guests (translation: plenty soca and calypso….lol) which it was. It was really great working with Potts and Pans, and Roby and I couldn’t be happier with choosing them as one of our wedding vendors!!! Money well spent
