CAL Invaders performs at NAPA

The Caribbean Airlines Invaders Steel Orchestra displayed impressive “Versatility” in their concert that was titled such at the Lord Kitchener Auditorium, National Academy for the Performing Arts (NAPA), Port of Spain on Thursday evening. Along with several guests the band invaded the auditorium with their performances of classical, R&B, reggae, calypso, soca and gospel music. Invaders Steel Orchestra’s fan base is widespread and not comprised only of the family and friends of the very young players, but also of diehard fans who actually grew up supporting the band. Many senior citizens who were past players as well as fans were a part of the near capacity audience.  Invaders did not disappoint the patrons. Arddin Herbert served as conductor and arranger for this concert leading the band in the three-hour musical journey that though lengthy, proved quite entertaining throughout the night.

Invaders opened with Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 5 in C Minor”, with young Luke Walker taking the lead as Soloist. Chick Corea’s “Spain” was next this time with Jason Ho and Jamal Gibbs each being featured as soloists. Former Scouting for Talent winner, Richard Pierre thrilled the audience as he performed Verdi’s “La Donna e Mobile” while Roland “Rembunction” Yearwood switched things up a bit with his rendition of, Tarrus Riley’s much loved reggae love song, “She’s Royal”. Yearwood encouraged the very willing audience to join him in song

The haunting sounds of Tamba Gwindi’s percussions were heard clearly throughout the night adding the perfect highlights to the overall music of the band. Members of the band were dancing and clapping as they introduced “Tico Tico” to which members of the audience joined in clapping along and even dancing in their seats.
