Trinidad All Stars Denied Repeat Win by One Point

Thunder Coming!

Trinidad - In what has to be considered one of their strongest performances in years, the defending panorama champions, Trinidad All Stars came up one point short in the eyes of the judges of repeating their championship ways.

The renowned Trinidad All Stars, considered one the top steel orchestras in the world entered this year's competition with the song "Thunder Coming" sung by Chucky and composed by Edwin Pouchet & Alvin Daniell as their tune of choice.

Coming into the final round of the competition Trinidad All Stars were the favorites after leading the pack in both the preliminary and semi final rounds.  Indeed, Trinidad All Stars had a small but comfortable 7.5 point lead after the semi finals, going into the finals.  Trinidad All Stars' performance was nothing short of awesome in the semi finals.  Standout veteran arranger Leon "Smooth" Edwards provided Trinidad All Stars with a musical piece that was consistent with their trademark "All Star" clean sound and  high caliber tight performances. 

The Trinidad All Stars community which has a very large dedicated fan base worldwide, sensed and prepared itself for another journey down victory lane, and with ample reason.  Trinidad All Stars has placed in the top three positions in the panorama finals seven times in the last eight years - an incredible feat in any arena or forum, that is a tribute to the organization's consistency, greatness and commitment to excellence.

Although in the end Trinidad All Stars was edged out by a single point (481:480) at the 2008 panorama finals by the 2006 champs Phase II Pan Groove, their performance will go down as one to remember.
