“Yah mon!!” We have steel drums and we like to play them! Never heard steel drums at a church before? Here’s your chance to learn some music, enjoy great company and experience the steel drums like never before.

Did you know?
The steel drum is believed to be the only non-electronic, acoustic musical instrument invented in the 20th century. The first steel drum or pan was invented around World War II in Trinidad, off the coast of Venezuela in South America.
Pans of Grace
Pans of Grace is an ensemble of experience steel drum performers who have learned a large repertoire of songs. They play in church every few months, and are often found performing at various events around the community. The group currently consists of seven players, and openings are rare. You must be an experienced steel drum performer and read music well.
Beginning Steel Drums
We are starting a new steel drum group. Please let us know if you are interested.
The ability to read music is helpful but not required.
If you are interested in joining either of these groups contact Cheryl Dockray, 575-921-2236. Also contact Cheryl to check about performing for your group or event.
