THE St James Community Improvement Committee (St James CIC) has selected Power Stars, formerly known as Blue Stars, as this year’s WeBeat St James Live 18 honoree.
The steelband was established in 1957 as Blue Stars, but ten years later, the band got sponsorship from the Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (T&TEC) and subsequently became known as T&TEC Power Stars. That relationship went on for 41 years.
Over the years, the steel orchestra has participated at National Panorama, Best of the Rest and Steelband Music Festival competitions.
Power Stars has also formed alliances with many a junior steelband inclusive of St Francois Girls’ College of Belmont and Mucurapo Senior Comprehensive School.
