The author has some things out of sequence. The Esso Steel band he refers to was Dixie Stars from Gatacre St. The picture shows Rudy ( Pupa) Commissiong leader on the left, Carl Borde next ( Hugh's brother), my brother Steve Dupres, and perhaps Kelvin Dove. Kneeling on left is "Ivan " whose last name I can't remember. The other guy is most likely a Bermudian. Dixie Stars went to Canada in 1954 as the Esso Steel band, to play at the Canadian National Exhibition. In 1955, Esso again took Dixie Stars to Canada on a cross country tour from Montreal to Vancouver. But they also wanted a band to return to the CNE. Being the youngest but only remaining member of the band in Trinidad, still in school, I was asked to "raise" a side for this but couldn't, if you remember how Steelbands operated at the time. Esso took on Tropitones and I was included in that band to go to the CNE in 1955. We went up on one of the Saguenay boats that used to take bauxite from Alcoa in Chaguaramus. I am not aware of Dixie Stars/ the Esso Steel band going up the Saguenay River. The only band at that time to do that was a combination Silvertones / Dixieland side sponsored by the Simplex Co. in 1958. Another thing strange in his report is the loading of bauxite in Bermuda. Don't think this ever happened, so would need to see evidence . After the 1954 trip Rudy took some of the band to Bermuda where they operated successfully for many years . The rest of the band made the 1955 cross Canada tour.
