Desperadoes reborn…rejuvenation on Laventille Hill

As iconic steelbands Massy Trinidad All Stars and CAL Invaders celebrate their 80th and 75th anniversaries, respectively, in 2016 Desperadoes will celebrate 50 years of success in steelband competitions. The steel orchestra with the most national Panorama victories in its bushel, as well as three Steelband Music Festival championships, has embarked on a rejuvenation programme aimed at lifting the Laventille Hill steel orchestra to its former glory having lost some of its spark in recent years.

Desperadoes PRO Patricia Rock-Ross said this week: “Desperadoes recently elected a new management committee, its membership being a mix of relatively young members with a few of the elder heads. Our new manager is Curtis Edwards who comes with a wealth of experience in not just music, but in leadership as well. A past captain of Desperadoes and of his own band, Crescendoes, he is also a UWI grad in music.”

Rock-Ross added that the new committee is intent on creating a bond between the players, the supporters and the community. “Jump high, jump low, all of Laventille and Desperadoes is one family and it is high time that we eradicate any form of division that may have existed in recent years. It is not nice when we hear people, especially some of those who have supported us through the years, saying that Deperadoes is a has-been. Our mission is restore the pride and dignity of this great institution and of course to win the 2016 national Panorama title.
