About
"Potts & Pans Steelband really catered to my needs, and they sounded great!"
Joe C. - Geneva, IL.

"I thought steelpans could only play beach music, Potts & Pans Ensemble made me realize the true beauty and depth of this instrument."
Shirley T. - Crystal Lake, IL.

Potts & Pans Steelband is a steelpan ensemble that molds itself to your event. With performers from a solo pannist with backing tracks through a full 9 piece steelband, and genres from classical to calypso, Potts & Pans Steelband will be the perfect entertainment for your event. Led by Matt Potts, a graduate of the Northern Illinois University Steelpan Program, the group is comprised of talented pannists from around the Chicagoland area.
Along with playing calypsos, the band enjoys showing the true versatility of the steelpan by playing other genres like classical, pop rock, doo-wop, latin, and just about anything else. We are always open to requests from our hosts, and will learn just about any type of music for your event. You name it and Potts & Pans Steelband will get it done for you.

Potts & Pans Steelband was fantastic! We had a welcome back to campus event and when we had issues with scheduling they were very patient and work with us the whole time. We received so many compliments about how great they sounded from many students that attended. Their music was the perfect addition to our theme. We would definitely book them again!

Thank you SO MUCH for being part of our tradeshow booth yesterday! You did such a great job, everybody was raving about it! The music really added to the ambiance of the whole event – not just our booth! I heard so many comments about how when you were between songs and the music wasn’t playing, it just wasn’t the same. It was a pleasure to work with you and we will definitely keep you in mind for future events! Thank you so much!

We were very happy with the entertainment that night, so much so that everyone wanted him to stay an extra half hour. Soothing music, great party addition, and all the kids were amazed and just starring. Great time was had by all. We plan on using them again.

The audience was a mix - everything from young kids to older adults. The program was a little long for the younger folks, but perfect for the adults! Would like to have them back! Maybe a spring or summer thing.

We felt this young man was very professional. The only complaint we received was that the music sounded the same. Some people wanted some songs a bit more lively for dancing at that point after the live auction and dinner. We truly enjoyed the mood and tone set, and the professionalism. He was early and stayed late. I felt a little hesitation w playing the steel drum and reading music. But the dj aspect was continual and he was kind and very flexible.

Potts & Pans were very professional, reliable and would a great experience. He came early to set up, checked in on us prior to the event and was a great performer. We would definitely encourage any other person to book them, as they were high energy and a hit with the children.
