The Rockland Cultural Steel Band Organization’s (ROCKSO) EKKQUINOX Steel Band has entertained Palisades Center’s guests every year with their infectious, upbeat sound. This year, ROCKSO’s EKKQUINOX Steel Band will perform their Annual Fundraiser steel band concert virtually on Saturday, June 19 starting at 7:00pm. The concert will be live streamed on YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram.

ROCKSO is a not-for-profit organization based in Rockland County, New York that provides subsidized music education on the steel drum instrument. It was founded by Trinidadian native, Richard Nathan. Students in the program learn music theory and composition as well as instrument-specific techniques. However, their mission extends beyond just music. They teach unity, diversity and mutual respect through music. Students are also encouraged to engage in exhibitions and live performances that happen at Palisades Center and all over the Tri-State area.

“Partnering with Palisades Center’s marketing team has been an exceptional experience these past few years,” said Carlos Noel, Booking Manager of EKKquinox Steel Band. “The EKKquinox Steel Band has joined forces with Palisades Center once again to create an unforgettable music performance for customers to enjoy wherever they are.”

“We applaud the EKKQUINOX Steel Band for making the best of our current circumstances,” said Darrin Houseman, General Manager of Palisades Center. “For years, Palisades Center’s guests have enjoyed the steel band’s energetic and uplifting performances, and now they still can!”
