TT – T&TEC New East Side Dimension arranger Kersh Ramsey, 25, believes Tobago made a powerful statement at this year’s Panorama small conventional bands finals on Friday.
Tobago was well represented at the Queen’s Park Savannah in Port Spain with five bands in the final. It was not just participation to be proud of as three Tobago bands placed in the top five, with Uptown Fascinators getting the judges’ nod for first place. T&TEC New East Side Dimension placing fourth and West Side Symphony in fifth. C&B Crown Cordaans tied for 11th with La Horquetta Pan Groove playing Trouble in the Morning, and Tobago Pan-thers tied for 13th with Arima Golden Symphony playing Madness.
