First performance

Well this week I did my first public performance - a pool party with some friends who love me whether I do well or not!! Good  safe place to  start I would say. It  went pretty well except I was surprised who nervous  I was. I have been playing and performing for many many years but not with pans. Once I got started it was  ok - just weird being in a different environment that where I normally practice. I used Brad's backing tracks with the melody in case I screwed up or got lost. I used a…

That was great Bill. A real inspiration for those of us just starting out. I’m starting on a low C lead but I think in the future I would like to transition to doubles. You sound great, makes me want to go practice.

Hi Bill. Gary Fisher has no friends. Only kidding. I am a friend. Good guy and he plays bass pans in our bands.

We are playing a 1 hour benefit concert at the Hotel Roanoke downtown for cocktail hour starting at 5:30pm - 6:30pm not sure exactly where but will likely be in the lobby or the lobby of the Ballroom. Check it out at https://www.talentchallengeforcharity.com/

Pan Kat

Alternate Mode Pan KAT



Up for auction is a Pan KAT Midi Steel Drum that I used to play reggae tunes.  I have had the Pan KAT for 10 + years but really only used it for about a year to play solo steel drum and some Jimmy Buffett tunes for friends (I am a guitar player).  The original unit cost about $1,800 without the case and I am offering it up for $825 plus shipping.  I used an older Roland MIDI sampler (not included) for the steel drum sounds but IndigiSounds (YouTube link…

Advanced pan technique

So there are lots of books and videos on how to play pan - all the ones I've seen are for beginners. Anybody know of Advanced technique books? I see LiamTteague does a beginner book- I would love for him to do one for more advanced players.
