New Jumbie Pans a Resounding Hit

We are excited to announce that we have 3 new ‘Jumbie Jam’ pans to add to our steel drum set.  These were purchased through various steel pan fundraising events and arrived on island with David Gettes, our steel drum tuner, last week.

The Jumbie Jams are superb beginner steel drums, with a really high quality sound, and they are a fantastic addition to our already established steel band.  All the children have been extremely keen to come into the Music Room to try them out and they are a perfect size for the younger children in the school to play and learn on.  They look like great fun too with their feet stands and bright colours. Apart from the blue colour that we presently have, they also come in flamingo PINK! It’s been particularly great to see our older steel drum players taking on the role of mentor, teaching the younger children how to play.

We hope to raise further funds to buy more Jumbie Jams for the school and many children are already putting them down on their Christmas lists! Please let us know if you’d like to order one through the school in plenty of time for Christmas.
Before long we hope to have a 5-10 set band of Jumbie Jam players to perform alongside The Provo Primary Steel Drum Band. Stay tuned for more news!
