These photographs are of the Adlib Steel Orchestra taken during the last night of rehearsal for the Brooklyn Panorama on September 2nd, 2016. The band rehearses at its panyard (rehearsal space), 855 Nassau Road, Uniondale, NY nightly during the months of July and August every year to prepare for the Panorama competition, held on the Saturday evening of the Labor Day weekend.

Adlib took 7th place in the competition. Ten Steel Orchestras participated in the competition. Adlib has taken first place three times, has come in second three times, and third twice in recent years. Adlib is the only band from outside Brooklyn to ever win the competition.
