The Parrot Pan and Toucan Steel Bands are the newest performing ensemble joining the vibrant arts scene at Smith Mountain Lake. The ensembles learn and share the sounds of the steel drum from Trinidad. Music ranges from standard island tunes to latin, rock and of course Buffett! The band was formed in 2013 from interested people attending a summer concert by Roanoke's Panamania Steel Band. The bands meet at The Old West Lake Lighting Gallery on Builders Way Road and are under the direction of Richard 'Pandaddy' Rudolph.
