Tobago Pan-Thers Steel Orchestra
click for bio
Nested in the lush Green vegetation of the North coast of Tobago, Tobago Pan-Thers Steel Orchestra was founded in 1992 by Mr. Milton Thomas in the Small village of Golden Lane. Back then the band was known as G.M.C. (Golden Lane, Mt. Thomas and Culloden) Steel orchestra in the Traditional or Single Pan Band Category.
The Tobago Pan-Thers Steel Orchestra was formed for the sole purpose of keeping his children off the Street and not to get involved in the social ills at the time. However, with the over whelming support form villagers and surrounding communities the band was able to participate on a national level.
From 1998 to 2010 Tobago Pan-Thers participated in the National and THA Pan Champs in the Single Pan Band category which the band qualified for the National Semi Finals on eight (8) occasions and winning the THA Pan Champs a total five (5) times. [2000, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2008].
In 2012 Tobago Pan-Thers graduated to the Conventional Small Category, which we consider to be one of our greatest achievements so far. We were the first band to have successfully done this in Tobago. From 2012 to present we qualified for the National semifinals seven (7) times [2012-2018], Nation Finals (2) times [2017-2018] and won THA Pan Champs (4) times [2012, 2013, 2014 and 2017.
