CASYM - Far From Finished - New York Panorama 2017 - Pan Yard Recording - Video

CASYM Steel Orchestra - In spite of the 2017 Evil Empire’s “No-Respect-O-Rama” the musical genius of the New York Pan-Man and Pan-Woman shines through...

Suffering a severe ‘Buss Head’ from the tribe of Despers USA, the disoriented evil emperor headed south with his three witches in tow, looking to seek refuge and friendship while capturing weak souls in East Flatbush in the yard of CASYM Steel Orchestra. Rumors have it that earlier that day one of the witches almost fainted and another came down with a serious case of diarrhea after hearing that there was a possibility that the Pan folks would boycott Panorama if monies owed to them by the Evil Empire were not paid in full. Witch number three, fearing that all was lost. pulled out her mirror (smartphone) and asked “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the ugliest of them all?” The ‘dark side’ mirror promptly responded “You are.”

CASYM’s musical skipper for 2017 was none other than Kendall Williams. And his arrangement let the ‘dark side’ know in no uncertain terms that the beat-down they had so justly earned was “Far From Finished.” With Quillen from the N, the Y and the U, and drill master Sir Jerry Guy as wingmen, Captain Curtis Lynch let it be known the reign of terror and disrespect toward Brooklyn’s steel orchestras are done. CASYM is no place for old pan-hating devils. 100 players let it be known that this war is indeed Far From Finished.
