PAN BRASS & JAZZ

A Truly Fantistic Celebration fitting for Trinbago's Jubilee

According to Dr. Lennard Jack Jr.:
What a day it was! The Veterans Plaza in Silver Spring Maryland was live with the Trinidad & Tobago community celebrating their county's 60th anniversary of its independence fron Britain with the Pan, Brass and Jazz Festival under the patronage of its embassador to the us and the Organization of American states, Ambassadoe Anthony Phillips-Spencer.  This well organized show featured  Trinidadian Trumpeteer Etienne Charles and his band, Creole Soul, Famed Massey All Stars Steelpanist Dane Gulston, Washington's own Panmasters Steel Orchestra and The Excited and telented Eclipse Band of Hyattsville Maryland. The event brought out people of all walks of life, especially after the isolation of the pandemic, making it a wonderful sight to meet people that simply have not seen eachother in two years. Congratulations are pouring in to the organizers The Trinidad & Tobago Association of Washington DC (TTADC) and Carnival Nation for such a well organized and enjoyable show, worthy of its billing.
