Our Sea Pan Steel Drum Musicians
All ensemble performers are professionally trained musicians who have chosen to play steel drums (also commonly called “Pans”) near the North Carolina coast. Simply, we play the “pans” by the “sea” and we invite you to enjoy the jubilant energy of the “Sea Pans”.

Vince meticulously hand crafts and tunes steel barrels to create authentic versions of the steel drum. Smaller versions of the drum are available and make a unique gift for children.
