There is a new pan-side in the in the pan yard! Epic Sounds is the newest steel orchestra to have been launched by the Pan against Crime Committee (PAC); making it the fourteenth (14) steel orchestra that have been launched under the program which began in 2008.
The launching and handing over ceremony took place on Friday November 9, 2018 at the Calliaqua Hardcourt.
Epic Sounds brought so much energy and life to the Calliaqua Hardcourt that it was reminiscent of the “Steel and Glitter” show during the Vincy Mas 2018. With their leader Johnney ‘JP’ Pompey on drums, Epic Sounds Steel Orchestra played a variety of musical genres including gospel, soca and dancehall.
And to showcase their versatility in the music industry, some of the band members even turned vocalists and sang to the sweet music of their brand new steel pans.
Adding to the musical accompaniment and entertainment package at the event was the Police Band under the leadership of Assistant Superintendent of Police and Band Master, Mr. Daniel Hall.
The Band as usual played with dexterity and had the crowd calling for more performances.
