Pan Pun De Sand

Crop Over Souvenir - - UNMASKING MAKEUP TRENDS -

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.
