Tobago set for huge pan show

Tobago is preparing for its inaugural steel band show which will be a huge economic benefit for the island.

Pan Trinbago president Beverly Ramsey-Moore says plans are well on stream to host the national finals of the medium conventional steel band Panorama competition in Tobago.

The event will be on Feb. 22 at the Dwight Yorke Stadium, Bacole. An excited Ramsey-Moore reiterated the competition will create history on the island.

“It is the first major national finals of any kind of event to be held in Tobago and we are hoping it comes off satisfactorily,” she said.

Ramsey-Moore added the Tobago House of Assembly has already agreed to support the initiative. “So, we are working together.”

Ramsey-Moore, who is also manager of the Black Rock-based Katzenjammers Steel Orchestra, claimed she knows many people who have purchased airline tickets for the competition.

She said she was extremely pleased with the calibre of the performances in the single-pan competition and the recently concluded preliminary round of the small-band competition.

Eight Tobago bands have qualified for the semi-finals of the competition, which is being held on Jan. 11 at Victoria Square, Port of Spain.
