Why hire Pan MidWest?
All the island favorites and a whole lot more, including jazz tunes, doo-wop, poptunes and requests. Capable of catering to your event theme and can perform as a soloist, duo, trio, and large group. As always we never use backing tracks. ONLY live musicians for that authentic island feel!
Our steelpan artists have been heard on Nickelodeon, Sprint, Verizon and Comcast among many others.
