Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music

The sounds of the steelpan will resonate in St. James over the next couple of days during the annual WeBeat festival in St. James


Trinidad & Tobago, W.I. - Come Sunday June 09, three (3) of the original St. James steelbands, Scrunters Pan Groove, St. James Tripolians and Power Stars, will come together under the banner “Small But Large”, at the St. James Park & Amphitheatre, Western Main Road, St. James, from 6:30pm.

The free concert, “Small But Large”, is an initiative of Keith Simpson, Manager of St. James Tripolians, who decided to stage this event as a gift to the people of St. James and also in the memory of Earl Crosby, first President of the St. James CIC and Chairman of the WeBeat St. James Live Committee.

Simpson added: “We may be considered Small Bands but we are large in our hearts and conviction to ensure (steel) pan remains alive. Although each of the bands is unsponsored, all costs related to the event are being borne by the respective bands. Special thanks go out to Alexis Hope, manager of Scrunter’s Pan Groove and Gregory Lindsay, manager of Power Stars, for their support.” Power Stars, was last year’s recepient of the St. James Committee WeBeat 2018 award.

It's a great idea for the St. James bands to come together and perform for the people of St. James and the other communities.

The people needs to come out and show support for the bands and the art form which is dying slowly.Thanks to Rudolph Hope, Gregory Lindsay and Keith Simpson.

Big-up WeBeat 2019.
