Junia Regrello
Manager
Skiffle Bunch Steel Orchestra
2005 T&T Panorama Season
 


 

Date: 1.14.05

Skiffle Bunch's Junia Regrello,  manager of the powerhouse steel orchestra from South Trinidad, shares his thoughts on the upcoming 2005 steelband  music panorama competition.   The arranger for Skiffle Bunch Steel Orchestra is once again, accomplished panist US-based Liam Teague.  Their tune of choice is the late Lord Kitchener's Pan Night and Day.   Regrello says that the choice of selection was Teague's, but that the decision by Pan Trinbago to allow selections from prior years in the 2005 season is not one he is keen on, even though he understands their reasoning behind the move.

For the preliminary judging on Friday January 14 at their pan yard, Skiffle Bunch would be fielding about 70 musicians, due in part to the acoustic challenges of presenting a larger contingent within the close confines of cement  walls.  As the days move closer to Panorama, the players of Skiffle Bunch, who are expected to be in finals, fall in to make up the numbers for the large band category (up to 120) in which the steel orchestra competes.   The band placed fifth in the national finals of the 2004 Panorama competition.

There is life after panorama for Skiffle Bunch Steel Orchestra, whose stage side is world-renowned and spends considerable time abroad after the Panorama season, as "ambassadors of Pan" all over the world.  Catch the full interview with Junia Regrello online courtesy When Steel Talks .

Preliminary judging is underway in pan yards through January 18.
