Speightstown alive with pan

Social Share

THE SUNSET STEEL ORCHESTRA brought the curtains down on today’s day of pan in Speightstown.
Those gathered on the Esplanade watched in wonder as those who cruised the high seas on the CBC Pan in De City Cruise to Speightstown Market and Q in the Community arrived at the St Peter venue.
Something is always happening when RPB is around his fans, and Biggie Irie’s Pankatang rang even sweeter when accompanied by the Olakunde Steel Orchestra, which provided the main entertainment on the near two-hour cruise.  
Once the entourage reached the Esplanade, they joined the large crowd already gathered, and were treated to the cool sounds of Pan Tronics, which performed blasts from the past.
The young and old alike were happy to “guh down” and “turn ‘round” during RPB’s short performance there.
On another stage a few feet away, Sunset Steel Orchestra opened with Earth, Wind and Fire’s Fantasy and kept the groove steady with a number of well-known songs. In regular “Q” style, Barbadians carried their own key for the rest of the night and into the morning. (LW)
