The second CD by Pans on Fire (and Friends), “Stand by Me",
was released on 17 April 2017 in Marysville.
In December 2011, the band released its first CD, “Recovery”. During 2015-16, tracks were laid down for this newest CD “Stand by Me” – the title expressing the support given by band members to each other, both inside and outside the band. On this CD, Pans on Fire is joined by Friends with whom they have played over the past few years, or who may represent the future of pan playing in our region.
The ten tracks on “Stand by Me" capture the last 5 years of the band's life, and show just what can be done with enthusiasm and commitment. While band members know they still have a lot of improvement left in them, those outside the band who have heard both CDs comment of the marked change in quality over the past few years. “Stand by Me" features seven tracks by Pans on Fire, two tracks by Scotch’n’Dry (a Celtic/Pans combo) and finishes with a performance by the kids from the Buxton Primary Steelband. You can listen to a sample of the tracks on “Stand by Me” here.
"Stand by Me" is available for just $20.00 from the Marysville Visitor Centre, the Marysville Lolly Shop and other fine retailers in the Marysville and Triangle area.
