The above video is the Southern Mississippi State University Steel Band/Percussion Ensemble directed by Professor John Wooton.
Nightwatch is an arrangement for a large steel drum band with marimbas. The instrumentation is flexible if steel drums are not available. This work was originally conceived for Panama Steel, a steel band sextet that I performed with for 11 years in North Carolina. Dedicated to my son Austin, Nightwatch has been recorded twice: once by Panama Steel (Third Times a Charm CD) and once by the UNT 2:00 Steel Drum Band (Special Brew CD).
