Newcomer ‘We Ting’ tops preliminary round of 2010 Pan Down Memory Lane steelband competition

Trinidad & Tobago - There will be a new champion in this year’s bmobile Pan Down Memory Lane competition.  Newcomer We Ting topped the Preliminary round with 265 points.  Just seven months in existence, the Woodbrook-based Single Pan Band led by Vincent Benjamin vowed the judges with Edwin Pouchet’s arrangement of The Platters’ “Only You.”

Last year’s joint winners, the then-Angostura Woodbrook Playboyz now Carib Woodbrook Playboyz, amassed 252 points while Pan Family will compete in the Conventional Bands category.

Overall, thirty (30) steelbands faced the panel of judges over a four-day period. Bands were required to play a non-calypso tune (not from the 21st Century) in calypso tempo.

At the end of the exercise, twelve (12) bands in order of merit will proceed to the Finals on Saturday 17 April at the Jean Pierre Complex, Wrightson Road, Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, at 8:00 p.m. More than two hundred thousand dollars (TT $200,000.00) in cash prizes are at stake.
