Short notice for single pan bands

Due to the instability of the Pan Trinbago executive and the threats from players to boycott Panorama 2017 unless they were given their due payments from the 2016 competition, single pan bands from South were only given four days in which to perfect their songs for the this year’s preliminary rounds.

Judging for the first four of eleven South and Central bands began on Friday evening, with judges going around to each panyard.  Garvin Williams, leader of the single pan band Super Vibes, of La Romaine, said, “We were practising five songs, but then members boycott me for not being paid from last year.  But after the payment came, Panorama was back on, but we only got notice on Monday, so we had to finish the tune in four days.

We finish the tune in four days with the goodness and the strength of all the people in the community that love the band and love the pan.” Super Vibes is competing this year with the popular 2017 hit, Full Extreme, by Ultimate Rejects, the song was arranged by Hudson Henry.  The short notice was felt by the three other competing bands, including Vistabella- based Shades in Steel playing Burning Flames’ “Showdown”, Gasparillo’s Highlighters Orchestra playing “Fete” by Super Blue, and Jah Roots from Point Fortin playing “Sixty Seven” by Kitchener.
