About Nicky

Steel Drummer
Nicky Fairey set up Pantastic in 2005 a business which provides teaching for children and adults and performing bands for events.

"Pantastic" was started in 2005 to teach children in Bookham and the local schools to learn to play the Steel Pans. The business developed through demand and now there are 8 adult groups and 5 children's groups. Two professional groups perform for events; Panache, an adult band and Pantasia, a teenage band. The musical repertoire varies from traditional Caribbean pieces like Yellow Bird, Jamaica Farewell and Islands in the Sun to classical pieces like the Blue Danube Waltzes, easy listening; Moon River and up tempo numbers like Fun Fun Fun and Just Can't Wait to be King. The adult bands perform at a variety of local venues annually like Claremont Landscape Gardens in Esher and RHS Gardens Wisley as well as Polesden Lacey National Trust Property at Christmas.
