Steel Drum Programs

Quest was an innovator 18 years ago by introducing steel drum orchestras to the Roanoke Valley. Each year our groups perform at area churches, conventions, retirement homes, area schools as well as local festivals. Many organizations use Quest Steel Drum Bands as entertainment for annual fundraising events! We've performed throughout the region, cruised the Caribbean, and earned gold, silver, and bronze trophies at the annual Virginia International Pan Festival.


This inter-generational group meets weekly at the Panyard.  We perform several times a year throughout Roanoke and sometime at locations as far away as the beach!
