  • Gearing up for April!

    Posted on by admin Comment

    Well, it’s almost April again and that means steelband concert time! Last year, alumnus Matt Potts of The Steelpan Store and Potts & Pans¬†started the Great Lakes Steelpan Festival. It was a huge success, and it’s back even bigger and better than it was last year! GLSF14 is coming back to Crystal Lake, IL on April 12, 2014.

    This year there are 6 bands coming from around Illinois, Michigan and Mississippi to take part in the full day! GLSF14 will also have special guest artists Gary Gibson, Freddy Harris III, Kurry Seymour, and Potts & Pans Steelband. The day starts at 9 am with band clinics that are free and open to the public, there are workshops in the afternoon, and the day concludes with a concert starting at 8 pm featuring a 80+ piece steelband! Tickets for the concert are available here.

    But wait there’s more! The next day is NIU’s spring concert.

    So, get a full weekend of pan with tons of music and education at GLSF14 on Saturday and a concert from NIU on Sunday.

  • Freddy Harris III was Great!

    Tonight’s concert with Freddy Harris III was great! Freddy brought such an incredible energy to the performance, it was amazing! Seeing the passion that Freddy plays with along with his incredible dexterity on the steelpan was quite a treat. His combo, comprise of Robert Chappell, Rodrigo Villanueva, and Adam Bockman complimented FH3′s playing beautifully. I really cannot say enough about what a treat it was to have seen Freddy Harris III playing in DeKalb tonight. Great, great job!!


  • Concert Coming Up

    The next concert is November 18th at 3 pm. Freddy Harris III will be there, so you know it’ll be good!
