Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
Antigua & Barbuda, W.I. - “It has been 50 years, and we jamming still; 50 years, with musical talent and skill; 50 years of pan music in the air; 50 years, with passion, style and flair; 50 years of providing the nation with pulsating steelpan music that helped in uniting us as a people,” Senator Richard S Lewis said of the Halcyon Steel Orchestra on the occasion of its 50th Anniversary as a champion progenitor of steelpan music.
Lewis, the United Progressive Party’s candidate for the St John’s Rural West Constituency made the remarks recently as he donated a number of polo shirts and assorted drinks to the steel band which hails from the Gray’s Green community.
Halycon’s Captain, Dwayne Mussington, and Fitzroy “Blakie” Philip, a longstanding band member, accepted the items on behalf of the band.
