Vanden High School's Pan Passion Band is soliciting help for their fundraising Crabfeed FebruARY 24. Proceeds go toward purchasing equipment such as pans, cases stands etc.
All donations are welcome, including offers to perform at the event.

The event is called a 'Taste of the Caribbean' evening and will be hosted at Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church. We have 2 steel drum bands so far that are playing. It will be a fun event of tasting Caribbean food from all over the Caribbean like Jamaica, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and more. I would like a Latin band to play Puerto Rican, Cuban and reggae.

We are open to options like a DJ to play Caribbean music, have Caribbean or latin dance lessons or some Carnival costumes. This is the time frame for Carnival in the Islands so lets party. You can use this event to advertise your business at the sametime.

I can use any help I can get on this. We need to pay for cases, drums, stands and more and we want to expose the kids to all that the Caribbean has to offer maybe a trip to Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands.. who knows..

I am the parent for the High School band and have been coordinating events and performances for them for the last year or so. We played at the Jazz festival with Ron Mesina as a wonderful surprise and we were a hit playing Evil Ways. We have been playing at local venues as requested but our drums are getting banged up a bit since we have no money for cases.

Here are some links/pics of our group.. This is on www.Youtube
