Breaking News

Dixieland Steel Orchestra

Tobagonians must still be dancing jigs of joy as two of their orchestras make it into the final round of the medium band category in the 2007 Trinidad and Tobago national panorama.  Dixieland and Katzenjammers claimed two of the eight positions up for grabs tonight in the semi-finals which took place at the south-western end of the  Queen's Park Savannah in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad.  Katzenjammers occupied fourth place with 269 points, while Dixieland fended off all thirteen of their fellow competitors and muscled their way into position one with just five points more at 274.   Dixieland came into this competition with legendary arranger Len 'Boogsie' Sharpe at the helm, and playing De Fosto's Pan Lamentation. 

Surprisingly, depending champions Sforzata, winners in 2005 and 2006, found themselves in an unaccustomed position of 5th place with a score of 268.   However, a  win this year would give Sforzata the hat trick, elusive in any category.  The entire line up of bands moving onto the Saturday February 17th finals are:  Dixieland, Sound Specialists of Laventille, Silver Stars, Katzenjammers, Sforzata, Harmonites, Pan Glow and Arima Angel Harps.
