Steel Panda

Steel Panda are the up-and-coming junior steelpan band of Bream Bay College. They are led by teachers Scott Brown and Vivienne Milton.

The group originates from Bream Bay College, Ruakaka, Northland. These young musicians began learning to play the steelpan as intermediates in 2016. They have since performed at a range of events, both locally and as part of Aotearoa's first ever steelband festival in Auckland. 

Steel Panda plays a wide range of genres, capturing the sound of the vibrant pans and afro-cuban percussion to recreate everything between old school hip-hop and smooth jazz with a fun tropical twist. Expect your foot to be kept tapping to their enthusiastic performance.
