NIU Alumnus’ Band is Gaining Attention


Potts & Pans

Upon graduation from NIU, Matt Potts decided to start up his own steelband in order to continue playing, provide a place for other NIU alums to continuing playing, and educate his community on the instrument. Just last week, Potts & Pans Steelband returned from being featured artists at the Montreal International Steelpan Festival.

This was the first international experience for Potts & Pans, and they were very well received. Many audience members, including Darren Sheppard, Hameed Shaqq, Salah Wilson, and Jimi Philip gave a multitude of compliments to the band.

Upon returning home, Matt has figured out what their niche is and is working on further exploring that. For more information about the band, check out their website at You can also find them on facebook, twitter, google+, yelp, youtube, and pinterest. You can also contact Matt directly at
