Music

The Pan‑handlers steel drum band was founded by Chops, Inc. Drum and Bugle Corps, serving as an alternative performance ensemble for those members interested in keeping their musical hobby going without the rigors of marching.

The Pan‑handlers can play as a steel drum duet or trio with recorded rhythm section, as a full 18-piece steel drum band with a live rhythm section, or any combination of instrumentation.  Their song list continues to grow, including everything from The Beatles to Bob Marley, from traditional to modern. This will be the second year that the Pan-Handlers Steel Drum Band will be back to play at the market and they were a huge hit in 2017!
