Pan Go celebrates Caribbean music through
use of Trinidad steel pans. Their exciting blend of Caribbean and American rhythms will move young
and old alike. The players provide a musical and
visual feast as their hands dance across the surfaces
of steel pans and latin percussion instruments. Calypso, Soca, Samba, Reggae, Jazz and Pop
are all part of their joyful sound.

Pan Go strives to recreate the music and spirit of Trinidad and Tobago's steel bands. The group, formed by Paul G. Ross in 1988, performs his original compositions and arrangements on the four main instruments of the steel pan family: Tenor pan, Double Tenor pans, Double Second Pans and Cello pans, along with electric bass, drumset and percussion. Their steel pans are hand-crafted and maintained by master drum builder Cliff Alexis. His tuning provides a real acoustic richness to make for an authentic Trinidadian sound.

Pan Go can be heard year round at festivals, concerts, parties and nightclubs around Chicagoland. For that big steel band sound, add Pan Go to your next tropical event.
