Panman Eyes Record

panman

CAN you imagine standing and playing an instrument for 24 hours continuously, with no breaks for food, water, sleep, or even to use the bathroom?

Well, this is exactly what local panman Marcus Lewis is hoping to achieve to set the Guinness record for the “Longest Marathon Playing Steel-Drums”.

Lewis, a Tobago native who is known by his nickname “Mr. Pantastick”, hopes to attempt the record before the end of the year.

His three-year-old son, Jaydon “Pantastick Jr”, will also be attempting to set a record of his own as the youngest person to play the steelpan for more than an hour.

Lewis has already applied and received an acknowledgement from the Guinness World Records Committee.
