Are you looking for something the whole family can enjoy together this summer? We have a suggestion.

There are many types of events that feature live music right here in the area, and this particular one is happening weekly in Bangor. There really is nothing like grabbing the family, or some friends, and enjoying some entertainment on a gorgeous summer night, and especially that we are now free again to congregate together again in public.

For the next few months, every Thursday night from 6:30pm-8pm, at the beautiful Cascade Park in Bangor (where my parents got married!) located at 600 State Street, they will be hosting weekly musical performances from Panstorm. The shows will take place on the following dates:

July 15th
July 22nd
July 19th
July 26th
August 5th
August 12th
August 19th

Panstorm is a local community pan band from Hermon Pans. Hermon Pans was started by Hermon School Department music teacher, John Kollman. Hermon Pans has groups for kids, starting in 3rd grade, and Panstorm features community players as well.

The steelpan is a musical instrument that originates from Trinidad and Tobago. Steelpan musicians are called pannists. This cool sounding percussive instrument is made from 55 gallon industrial drums.

Each weekly concert is free, runs 90 minutes in length, and people are encouraged to bring your own chairs, comfy blankets, and if the weather looks like rain, umbrellas. The group plays underneath a canopy tent, so the shows will go on as scheduled each week, barring a downpour.
