Additionally, several of the group’s young players went off to college. (Pan People strives for excellence in all that it does. Student members of the group are required to maintain a B average in their school work.)
The group is well known for its performances and steelpan productions in the Atlanta area. Over the years they have featured some of the top steelpan players including Ken “Professor” Philmore, Earl Brooks, Andy Narrell, Earl Rodney, Ras Steadman “Iginga” Joseph, and Ron Reid.
Among the performers carded for 2017 is Iman Pascal, Garvin Blake and Leon Foster Thomas and Despers USA.
