On a freezing, below-zero day in Hanover, New Hampshire, Scott Paulson and his seven-piece steel drum band The Pan Handlers heated things up in The HOP with the tropical rhythms and sizzling calypso beats of Caribbean steel drum music. The band began with a brief introduction to steel drum music and the history of the steel drum, then jumped into an hour-long set of irresistible music that had kids and adults going bananas! Some families stayed around after the show to ask questions and get a closer look at the drums.
Thanks, Scott and The Pan Handlers for a fun and educational HopStop!
