Pantastic is Sunderland's Community Steel Pan Band. We are currently a 23 strong group of mixed ages and physical abilities. We play a variety of music from traditional Caribbean calypso to 50's rock 'n' roll right through to modern pop music. The band has a long and prestigious history winning awards, entertaining royalty and putting the sun into community and corporate events for over 16 years! Though we have been through many changes in that time, Pantastic is still going strong, performing more songs year on year, pushing ourselves and audiences' expectations. We are based in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear but travel across Northern England and beyond to perform.
