TT – Pan Trinbago President Beverley Ramsey-Moore said she is “overwhelmed” at the success of Carnival Lagniappe A Night with the Champs held at the Queen’s Park Savannah on Saturday evening.
Ramsey-Moore was seen standing in the Grand Stand enjoying the performance of Dil E Nadan.
Carnival Lagniappe was produced by Pan Trinbago in a matter of days as the executive was uncertain about putting on a show.
Ramsey Moore said members were calling for the show so they decided to share it with the public. “It is really a show for our members who spend just about four months in their panyards and cannot really enjoy the Carnival. They don’t go to fetes like other people do. Bringing back all the top artistes of the season to perform for them so they too can get a taste of the Carnival.”
Carnival Lagniappe featured Calypso, Mas and Pan from the champions of the just concluded Carnival all performed like it was still a competition.
Arranger Duvone Stewart appeared on three occasions with the Small (T&T Defence Force), Medium (Pan Elders) and bp Renegades (Large) steel orchestras.
Zebapique Productions’ Junior Band of the Year (3rd place) was the pre-show entertainment and children seemed to enjoy playing mas for a second time.
