WATCH out Len “Boogsie” Sharpe! Eleven-year-old Jeremy Granado has set his sights on being the next master arranger of steelpan music. He wants it all – to be the best pannist, best drummer and best band leader this country has ever produced.
Since 2015, Jeremy has been entering and winning competitions for San Fernando Boys’ RC School which has rewarded him with the captaincy of its steelband. He alternates between the drums and the pan, depending on the selection.
In his debut year at San Fest 2015, Jeremy aced the competition with a Vanessa Headley arrangement of Kitchener’s Pan in A Minor and walked away with the trophy for best pan solo.
Congrats Jeremy...Sky is the limit!
Congrats young man. Tell anyone you can be your best and be the best there is. It calls for work at all levels, at school and at the instruments of your choice.
