The Tinpanic Steel Band, a 14-piece steel drum orchestra, is known to bring audiences to their feet with high-energy calypso rhythms and a big band sound. Their crowd-pleasing repertoire includes swing and pop favorites, along with the island party music for which the steel pan is popularly recognized. Tinpanic is based in Auburn and has developed a fan base across the state of Maine by playing at community celebrations, sailing regattas, private parties and charitable events.
"What a great evening -- everyone's talking about it. Those who didn't show up? They wish they had!"
(Roger A., President of the Board of Directors, Black Mountain)
"The hoots, the smiles and the non-stop dancing that erupt during concerts just feeds the band's enthusiasm."
(Lewiston Sun Journal on the 2008 summer concert at the Hilton Garden terrace)
"I've put on a lot of events -- wedding receptions, socials, dances... I've never seen people having this much fun. The best part of it was that the band seemed to be having a lot of fun too; they were all smiling and joking around!"
(Lisa A., Manager, Black Mt.)
"Everyone loved you guys. We had a lot of people here who don't usually come out for these events. It was their first time at the lodge and they had such a great time..."
(Craig Z., Director of Marketing, Black Mt.)
"The fun extends to the audience."
(Lewiston Sun Journal, LA Arts event)
"Among the crowd favorites were the Tinpanic Steel Band, a group of steel drummers that brings the sound of Caribbean Island grooves to the locales of Central Maine... 'The steel drum band was incredible. I'd like to see them come back every year.'"
(Lewiston Sun Journal, the Festival de Joie concert)
"They are very good. You find very few listeners who do not appreciate the unique sound that comes from these meticulously modified 55 gallon drums."
(Auburn Highlights, Festival Plaza noontime concert)
"Listening to the steel drum sounds of Tinpanic, it's easy to imagine the soft warm sand of the Caribbean beaches beneath your feet."
(Lewiston Sun Journal)
Comments From Fans:
"The sound was terrific. I kept thinking you were making such great music without microphones. We could put you in the Civic Center with microphones and you'd blow the place down!"
"I couldn't believe the versatility. We kept thinking we were hearing brass or other instruments."
"We loved the "Hey Song" --everyone in the lounge was screaming along with you!"
"The band looked like they were having as much fun as the rest of us!"
"You played really good music...Van Morrison...everybody was dancing to In the Mood. The
variety was terrific -- the 60's, Big Band, you had it all."
