New York, USA - Okay it’s official. The 2017 New York Summer steel band season is open. It was ushered in with a bang at the recent New York Pan Stars Band Launch. Held at the Despers USA panyard in Brooklyn, three additional Brooklyn orchestras (Despers USA, CASYM and Pan Evolution) participated in what was official billed as a “Pan Party.”
As is the operating style of New York Pan Stars they attempted to begin as close to the advertised start time as possible. From Lord Kitchener’s “Pan in ‘A’ Minor” to “Zouk” to Marc Anthony’s “Vivir Mi Vida” - NY Pan Stars no doubt got this party started right.
