Pan Loco Steel Band

Based in Acton MA

PAN LOCO STEEL BAND has been bringing the sweet sounds of the Caribbean to New England since 1991. We are an authentic, mixed ethnic ensemble consisting of two steel drummers, an electric bass player, and an electronic or acoustic percussionist. We perform year-round at formal and informal venues including weddings, parties, corporate functions, boat cruises, parades, college dances and festivals. Pan Loco also performs a special educational program for school children, and a fun, interactive solo act for residents at assisted living facilities. 

In business since 1991, we have performed at more than 1,600 events, all the while, earning a solid and trusted reputation as polished professionals who have the appropriate look, feel, sound and attitude you expect for your event. We also love what we do . . . and this will be obvious!

The talented musicians in Pan Loco hail from Berklee College and the University of New Hampshire, and have been performing all types of music in the New England area for many years.

We have our act down pat, and the repertoire is authentic and appropriate for all ages. You won't hear top 40 songs or elevator music. Pan Loco will bring calypso, reggae and island music from the Caribbean direct to your doorstep. When you hear this music, you'll feel like you're on a slow boat to Saint Thomas -- It's the real thing!

Pan Loco Steel Band is still the #1 small steel band in New England for 30 years running. Give us the chance to prove it to you and make memories that will last forever!
