Outta D Blue Steelband

Junior Edwards and Patrick Bernhard formed the Outta D Blue Steel band a few months ago. Their inspiration came from the name of the band as the idea to create a band came out of the blue. All their players are proficient players with interest from new players growing as they perform.

Their first public gig was on Friday 26th July 2013 at Tennishalle, Dudingen FR about twenty minutes from Cudrefin. Their performance was well executed and was accepted with great appreciation from the audience in the restaurant and tennis courts.  Their first rendition of ‘My Cheri Amor’ was a musical treat and their confidence grew with every tune of their repertoire.

Their band consist of Ursi and Janet on bass, Anita & Patrick on double seconds, Gabi & Miriam on triple cellos, Darryl, Lilo, Nicolas, Roland & Junior on tenor, Silvain on drums and Junior, Bruno, Edi and Ronnie (visiting from the USA) on percussion, with Pan Podium’s own Robbie Joseph joining in with percussion for a couple of tunes.

Outta D Blue had a practice session in their hotel with the kind hospitality of the hotelier the morning before attending the 21st Cudrefin Steelband Festival at Pampanas, Cudrefin where they played on Stage 1 at 8:00 p.m. with their second performance at 11:00 p.m. The other steelbands performing at Festival were Panatic, Funland Serenaders led by Paul Francis, The Steel Parrots, Les Amis de la Casserole, Quilombo, Stick n Pan and Abracadabra.

Outta D Blue started with a bang, they had the audience captivated with their astounding deliveries of their diverse repertoire.  Every band at the Cudrefin Steel Band Festival deserves commendations for their effort, energy and musical ability.  They brought the Caribbean feeling with the ‘Sunshine Instrument’ – the steelpan to the warm weather experienced by all in the park which was a stone throw away from the Lake.

On Sunday the 28th July, Outta D Blue performed at the Minigolf Restaurant in Champmartin, Cudrefin between 2-3 p.m. before heading back to Zurich and the continuation of the musical journey for many years to come.
