Clyde Heerah and the Paradize Band
Nothing brightens a cold Winnipeg winter day quite like the sweet sounds of steel pan drums, and for Clyde Heerah and the Paradize Band, playing them is a passion that warms their soul.
At an early age, Heerah emigrated from the island of Trinidad and Tobago. After school on weekends Heerah and some of his classmates would get together and have a jam session. It was the beginning of playing music in Winnipeg. The Paradize Band of Winnipeg was formed.
Since 1996, the Paradize Band of Winnipeg has become an integral member of Folklorama, performing at Canada Day, receptions, and teaching in schools and daycares across the city playing Calypso, Reggae, Latin, and top 40 songs plus some originals!Book Now!
