Het Pandorra Ensemble is an experimental group formed by Dolf Planteijdt that started around 1973 and ended in 1980. At the same time they played in the popgroup Door Mekaar, with this band they recorded Voor mekaarthe album Voor Mekaar.

The band started with Gert Jan Blom (bass guitar), Roland Brunt (flute), Jean Eble (drums), Marcel Schmidt (percussion) and Dolf Planteijdt (guitar). This line up with two drummers didn't last very long, since Schmidt left soon after the first gig. Drummer Eble was replaced by Wilfred Snellens in 1976. When the band started to record an album, Brunt left, and he was replaced by Dolf's brother Wouter Planteijdt, who had just left the band Speed.

In 1980 the band played it's last gigs with tenor and soprano sax player Rinus Groeneveld replacing Wouter Planteijdt.

After the group broke up all the musicians played in numerous bands, both as member and guest. Roland Brunt swapped the flute and plays in several bands, a.o. De Dijk. Gert-Jan Blom played in bands like Bauer, Fay Lovski and The Beau Hunks. He is currently artistic producer for the Metropole Orkest. Wilfrid Snellens played in Black Slacks but sadly died in 1997. Dolf Planteijdt became a well known producer of punk bands, but also played in Morzelpronk. And Wouter Planteijdt was a member of (a.o.) Corry & De Grote Brokken, Morzelpronk, Sjardin's Terrible Surprise and Sjako!. He also appears on the album "A view from the valley" (1985) by Grin.
