Expired: Steel and parang at Harvard

TT – The Harvard Club in conjunction with the Harvard Harps Steel Orchestra will host Steel and Parang at the club on Friday.

This event had been a feature in the past and now it is back.

Entertainment will come from the Harvard Harps, parang band Los Diamantes, Sonrie the Band –which is led by Antonio Flores and covers a variety of Latin and Caribbean musical genres, singer Carlton Louison, Patricia Smith, Dynamic Diva, and more.

There will also be music from DJs Stephen and Andy.

Harvard Harps, the club’s resident steelband, ventured into the small band category a few years ago and captured several titles. To date, the band has been fairly successful at the Panorama small band competition reaching the semi-final twice in the last three years, including this year when it delivered a melodious version of Buss Head by Machel Montano and Bunji Garlin, arranged by Renaldo de Pieza, a young graduate of UTT. Outside of Carnival the band fulfils a number of engagements throughout the year.
