"KEEPING PAN ALIVE" - ALBION SEWER, ST. JOHN STEEL PANNIST
I was asked to play a duet with Dax for an upcoming wedding. He would play the steel pan and I would play the ukulele, Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Hawaiian style, a song he wasn’t familiar with.
Dax came by the practice studio so we could prepare. Upon meeting Dax, I was immediately impressed as he had his own pan, sticks, and stand. “This kid was out for business!”
I had not heard him play before and asked him to play for me. His technique, timing, and pan skills immediately impressed me. I was even more impressed when he grabbed a pad and began to
write music notes and chords for the song to practice at home! I said to myself, “Yes man, this kid’s got a future!”
We practiced together several times over the coming weeks and on performance day Dax came through with flying colors. “He nailed it!”
I highly recommend Dax to play for your special event. I believe you will be impressed and I know he will demonstrate his love for the steel pan.
I’m looking forward to playing with Dax this season.
