Marigot, St. Maarten, W.I. -- Preparations are well under way for Gunslingers tenth Pan Revolution which will be held for the first time in the Layzy Bay parking lot in Marigot on the evening of Saturday, July 8, 2017, a concert that will be as much about the famous Gunslingers Steel Band legacy as the quality of the other artistes invited.
It promises to be an evening of excellent musicianship and vocal performances. The central performers will be the Junior Gunslingers from the music school, Senior Gunslingers of a certain age and experience, and the Advanced Gunslingers together with invited steel bands Flabej from Trinidad and the Nevis Pan Ensemble.
The tremendous line-up for the evening is complemented by featured local artistes Benjamin Bell, Tamillia Chance, Malaïka Maxwell, Shadz, Shakya, Baker Jr, Anjolie Sassy, Shanae Rumer, Royalty, Natisha Hanson, Kenyo Baly, and two surprise acts.
Layzy Bay parking lot will be transformed with a giant tent for the audience, VIP area, dance floor, and a big stage to accommodate 30-40 musicians and equipment.
“This is a Pan Revolution times ten, a culmination of all the concerts that have gone before,” enthuses Gunslingers’ music arranger Aldrich Benjamin.
