Trinidad All Stars On Stage - Moods of Pan 2006

St. John's, Antigua - When Steel Talks has been fortunate to witness and experience live performances of the celebrated Trinidad All Stars Steel Orchestra in different venues and on different continents.  They are the consummate professionals.  Regardless of the venue or occasion, one thing remains constant - Trinidad All Stars is going to give a command performance.

On Sunday  Trinidad All Stars was the closing act at this year's Moods of Pan Festival.  Again, the group did not disappoint the enthusiastic fans who gathered at the Deanery Grounds in spite of the challenging wet ground conditions.  They were treated to vintage All Stars.  To the audience's delight, All Stars moved through a mixed repertoire of new and popular material, and old favorites, for a continuous set that lasted just over an hour, showcasing the orchestra's versatility and musicianship.  Moreover they demonstrated why they are one of those select few world-performing steelbands that can be termed a true "super group".

Trinidad All Stars' performance was both engaging and entertaining as the crowd took as much delight in the musical presentation as the performing musicians on stage.  The group sounded tight in spite of the overbearing sound system. Included in this set were All Stars arrangements/songs that have now become standards and been immortalized among steelband music enthusiasts - undeniably classics within their own time.  When Steel Talks can bear witness that these songs are known and recognized by audiences, regardless of location or hemisphere.
