Atlanta’s Pansonics Steel Band brings Tropical Heat to Chick-fil-A Bowl Parade

Atlanta, Georgia, USA:  Pansonics Steel Band, one of Atlanta’s leading steel bands, will be bringing Caribbean culture to the metro Atlanta community in the United States.  This New Year’s Eve, they will grace the streets of Atlanta bringing the melodic sounds of the steel drum and Caribbean flavor to ACC (Atlantic Coast Conference) and SEC (Southeastern Conference) fans at the Chick-fil-A Bowl Parade.

Vere Henry, Artistic Director and arranger for Pansonics Steel Band, commented on their participation in the parade, saying, “This is the perfect opportunity to introduce the community at large to Pansonics Steel Band, and provide a cultural experience through steel pan music.”

The Chick-fil-A Bowl parade will take place Thursday, December 31, 2009 from 12:30 – 2:00 pm.  It will begin at the intersection of Peachtree Street and Ralph McGill Boulevard and end at the Georgia World Congress Center.

Pansonics Steel Band was established in 2005.  The group plays various genres of music including Calypso, Reggae, Gospel, R & B, and Jazz.  They perform at private and public events including weddings, churches, banquets and street parades.  The band is a permanent feature in the annual Atlanta Caribbean Carnival street parade on Memorial Day Weekend, and in July 2009 made its inaugural performance in the Houston Caribfest Parade. The band has also performed in the Knoxville, Tennessee’s Caribbean Day.
