Air ofvictory in Renegades’ panyard
THERE was an air of anticipated victory at the Renegades panyard last Thursday night during BPTT’s annual Panyard Lime.
Several times during the course of the night announcer Wendell Etienne, arranger Duvone Stewart and reigning Soca Monarch Voice (Aaron St Louis) alluded to an impending BP Renegades’ victory at the National Steelband Panorama competition in 2018. And each time they did, guests roared with approval. The band is playing Voice’s Year For Love.
Norman Christie, regional president of BPTT, and the company’s management and staff hosted the event, which saw a number of high-profile visitors. Among them, past BPTT chairman Robert Riley, former prime minister Basdeo Panday and his wife Oma Panday, Ministers Dr Nyan Gadsby-Dolly, Shamfa Cudjoe, and Jennifer Baptiste-Primus, former Senate president Danny Montano and his wife Rosemonde, retired banker Richard Young and former Miss Universe Wendy Fitzwilliam.
Guests feasted on local delicacies while being entertained first by the Renegades Youth Steel Orchestra, which played its 2018 song of choice, Sokah.
Certainly you know dat was ah "Big People Party". They like to ride with the winners. And now you went an expose them to a world audience on WST. Everything was cool until you shine light on them. And now Rolly Polly doesn't understand why he was not invited. Look "Trouble" now!
