Phase II Pan Groove, one of the most celebrated steel bands in Trinidad and Tobago, delivered a stunning performance of "Gimme Everything" for the Panorama preliminaries in 2024. The band, led by legendary arranger Len "Boogsie" Sharpe, showcased their musical prowess along with their versatility, with a dynamic rendition of a song composed by Dr. Len "Boogsie" Sharpe. 
 
Boogsie's arrangement had the crowd dancing and praising the talented arranger. The band also displayed their signature energy and enthusiasm, with members dancing and singing along to the catchy chorus. The band received a standing ovation and loud cheers from the crowd at the end of their performance.
 
Phase II Pan Groove is confident that their performance of "Gimme Everything" will give them an edge over their rivals and bring them closer to their eighth panorama victory. It has been a long 10 years since their last victory in 2014. This band needs a victory celebration, but they will have to give it all and a little more to dethrone last year's champion. Only time will tell...

The bp Renegades Steel Orchestra, one of the most celebrated and successful steel bands in Trinidad and Tobago, delivered a stunning performance of Mical Teja’s “DNA” for the preliminary round of judging for Panorama 2024.  
 
The arrangement, done by the brilliant Duvone Stewart, a renowned pannist, composer, and cultural ambassador from Tobago, captured the essence and excitement of the steel pan music. It was a musical treat tonight for the fans who witnessed the performance. Renegades delivered a spectacular performance of Duvone's arrangement that featured snippets of patriotic songs. 
 
The song, a lively and catchy soca tune that celebrates the carnival culture of Trinidad and Tobago, was played with finesse and flair by the Renegades, who demonstrated their mastery and innovation of the steel pan instrument. The audience was captivated by the rhythmic and melodic fusion of live guitars, bass, brass, drums, and steel pans, and sang along to the chorus of “It In We DNA”. The Renegades received thunderous applause and rave reviews from the crowd, who were blown away by their musical skills and creativity. We expect to see this band go all the way to the finals and judging from tonight's performance fans expect them to repeat as Champions once again.

The Massy Trinidad All-Stars Steel Orchestra delivered a stunning performance of Olatunji’s “Inventor” for the preliminary round of judging for Panorama 2024. The band, led by arranger Leon “Smooth” Edwards, showcased their musical versatility and creativity with a dynamic and energetic rendition of the soca hit.
 
The song, written by Olatunji Yearwood and Jason “Shaft” Bishop, celebrates the genius and innovation of the steelpan, the national instrument of Trinidad and Tobago.
 
The band also displayed their versatility with intricate runs, from the tenor to the bass, and their ability to create a cohesive and balanced sound. Of course, the fans were thrilled, and people watching the performance online were ecstatic, posting how pleased they were with the performance. We wish them well for the rest of the competition.

The Desperadoes Steel Orchestra, one of the most celebrated and successful steel bands in Trinidad and Tobago, wowed the judges and the audience with their rendition of Mical Teja’s “DNA” for the preliminary round of judging for Panorama 2024.
 
The band, led by arranger Carlton “Zanda” Alexander, showcased their musical prowess and versatility by playing the upbeat and catchy soca tune with precision, energy, and flair. The arrangement featured intricate harmonies, dynamic contrasts, creative variations, and a thrilling climax that had the crowd on their feet.
 
There is no doubt that the fans were pleased with the band's performance last night. However, it will be up to the judging panel to determine if they are good enough to move on to the next round of competition. We wish them well.
