Boston Metro Steel Orchestra at Broolkyn J'ouvert, Labor Day 2012

On Labor Day 2012 in Brooklyn, New York, I hung out with my friends in Boston Metro Steel Orchestra.

I liked the sound of this little band from Boston, which reminded me of the classic traditional sound of "pan on de road".

Here is a sample of their sound,

Their band leader and arranger is Glen Gabriel.

(I didn't get any of the New York bands, but I have to believe that some New York pan people must have recorded their favorite bands "on de road", Right? )

These guys traveled all the way from Boston to participate in the J'ouvert, but they were shut down by police before they got a chance to be heard by most of the fans, or by the judges.

The usual confusion with the police.

Not good.

Another example as to why the Trinidad Carnival has a built in advantage over all the other Carnivals in the Caribbean diaspora, if only they would fully exploit it.
