Home / New York Steelpan / Brooklyn Labor Day Weekend Carnival 2014 / Brooklyn Panorama 2014 250

These are photographs taken before and during the WIADCA Steelband Panorama competition in Brooklyn, NY on Saturday afternoon and evening of the 2014 Labor Day weekend.

Most of the photographs are of the Adlib Steel Orchestra. There are some photographs of other bands participating, in particular Steel X Plosion USA, and of friends I saw during the festivities.

The competition has been held annually for many years. It takes place in the parking lot behind the Brooklyn Museum. Thousands of people attend to hear the largest steelband competition in the United States.

Adlib tied for second place in the competition, two points out of 500 behind the winner, D'Radoes Steel Orchestra. Eleven orchestras participated.

Adlib has won the competition three times, and this is the third time Adlib has been in second place. They are the only band from outside Brooklyn to win the Panorama competition. Adlib had close to 100 musicians on the stage for the competition. To see photographs of Adlib rehearsing for the Panorama competition click HERE
