Celebrating Re-Opening & Fat Tuesday - Panchromatic Steel Band (BlueStem)

CODA is Re-Opening on 3/1/22! To celebrate re-opening and Fat Tuesday, we're partnering with BlueStem Jazz to host Madison's very own Panchromatic Steel for this special event!

Since its debut in 2017, Panchromatic Steel has blazed an entirely new trail in the local music scene, infusing rich musical traditions of the Southern Caribbean with the improvisational firepower of some of Madison's finest jazz musicians. This 12-piece band features Nicholas Bartell and Steven Beda on woodwinds and trombone, respectively, Tommy Mattioli on marimba, vocals by Elena Ross, a rhythm section of Josh Pultorak on drumset, Kevin Knapp on electric bass, and of course a small steelpan orchestra directed by Keith Lienert and Chad Bartell. Their high-energy show is as fun as it is fascinating.

The steeldrum, or “steel pan,” is the national instrument of Trinidad and Tobago: a small but culturally rich island nation in the south Caribbean off the coast of Venezuela. The instrument is literally a sawed-off 55-gallon oil drum with the top stretched into a bowl shape and painstakingly hand-hammered to create tone-producing centers, which are struck by rubber-tipped mallets. Originating in the 1940s, the steel pan owes its existence in part to the wide availability of discarded oil drums in Trinidad as a result of the presence of U.S./British naval bases and the country's oil and petrochemical industry; but more than that, the steel pan and its vast musical influence are testaments to the creativity, ingenuity and craftsmanship of the people of Trinidad and Tobago.

Ticket$ $10.
