Led by Joe Lovell, Traces Steel Band has been playing pan in the Waterloo Region and surrounding communities for over 10 years. The band has developed over time and presently boasts of a dozen members of diverse backgrounds from the Caribbean and Canada who truly appreciate the unique experience and joy of playing pan.

The band is supported by pan-makers, Jerry Jerome and Gerrard Clark, from Trinidad who make and tune the large inventory of wonderful drums which Joe has acquired over the years. Several band members have their own instruments as well.

Traces Steel Band brings you the tropical feel of the islands with songs you’ll love to hear with a little something for everyone; from old standards like “Yellow Bird,” “Red, Red Wine,” and Jamaica Farewell” to some upbeat spirituals such as “Amazing Grace,” “How Great Thou Art,” and “Rivers of Babylon.”
