Pan Pun De Sand
Thousands of patrons descended on Brandon’s beach on the Spring Garden Highway with their chairs, blankets and picnic baskets, eagerly awaiting the start of this year’s edition of the Massy Pan Pun De Sand show. The show got underway a little after 3 p.m. and from start to finish, the appreciative crowd was soaking in all the melodies, renditions and all-around good vibes which the performers had to offer. The Combermere School Steel Orchestra was the opening act and got a rousing response from the appreciative patrons who were seated early. They were followed by the steel orchestra from the Daryl Jordan Secondary School, which delivered another commendable performance.
Other performers included: SKF band featuring Mr Dale on vocals, Aceworks, the Haynesville Rhythm Section, the Mosaic Steel Orchestra Junior Group and the Andre Forde Project featuring Edwin Yearwood.
One of the standout performances came from solo pannist Dwight Callender, who was supported by local afro fusion dance group Riddim Tribe and DJ duo Hutchy and Sizz.
Pannist Dane Gulston, from the band Massy All Stars in Trinidad and Tobago was the headline act, ably supported by the Mosaic Steel Orchestra Senior Group.
