St. John’s, Antigua & Barbuda, W.I. - It was a sea of “cricket white” - topped off with red caps, and several cricket bats thrusting skyward in victory - as Hell’s Gate Steel Orchestra musicians literally bounded on stage to celebrate their 2013 steelband Panorama championship, when their win was officially announced shortly after 1:00 a.m. on August 2.
The reigning steelband panorama champs retained their title, trophy and bragging rights for a third consecutive year, trouncing five challengers. Yes, indeed the orchestra had hit a “6” - straight out of the [musical] ball park, when they rendered ace arranger Khan Cordice’s arrangement of King Short Shirt’s classic Vivian Richards, penned in tribute to the Antigua/Barbuda cricket legend.
