BULLIED AND ASSAULTED FOR WHEN STEEL TALKS ARTICLES

On Saturday June 21st 2014, I attended the free Concert hosted by Pan Trinbago and the Deputy Mayor of the Port of Spain City Corporation [advertised in the Express Newspaper of June 17th on pg.44 – the final line of the article stated that the “public is invited”] in honour of the 83rd birthday of Steelpan Pioneer and Icon Anthony Williams at the St James Amphitheatre. I arrived at the show around 8.10 pm, greeted by the sweet sounds of White Oak Starlift. As I listened to Starlift, I greeted…See More

Yeah Bertel; WE!!! the older panmen of the old day's could and love a good fight, remember Rudolph Charles, Gold Teeth, Scorpion, Jack Slade, Ellie Mannette, et al/ and others etc, but the panmen of today are "bobolee's," they like to get licks, a good panmen fight/riot against the abusers, will curtail the ambiance of abuse that panmen endure today, it worked in the pass, and who know's, maybe it could again...

Brother Bertel; still havin problrm with the thread, the Pan Trinbago Regime is the one's that's PIEGON HOLDING / back "Pan/Steel Band " in T&T, pan has only evolve HALF 1/2 of it's journey, Williams and myself in 2009 has completed an IMPREGNATOR for the instrument that is being Utility Patent and Copyrighted, but I won't disclose the WILLIAMS / JOHNSTON machinary just yet, pan is growing at an Enormous rate in other contries, while in T&T it's birth blace it's stagnant ...

Brother Bertel; I personally and honestly believe that "Pan / Steel Band" can survive with out Panorama, pan was doing better before with the Music Festival, the "Bomb Competition", the best beating steel band competiting in the "Queen's Park Savannah" and "Marine Square", my memory serve's right as I remember that Panorama derived to STOP the Marine Square and Park and Fredrick Street Bomb Competitions, panorama is just another Avenue, Street, or Road that the bands goes down, Pan men can go back to the Music Festivals, Bomb Competitions, etc every year, there are also different Music Festivals in other countries that they can participate in, as a member of Pan am North Stars, we did perform in the greatest Concert Hall in the World< Carniege Hall, Ed Sullivan Show, the Macy's Day Parade, with BWIA West Side, Carniege Hall, Radio City Music Hall, Tivoli Garden's in Stockholm, Oslo, Helsinki, I could go on and on, but I'll stop for U to take a breather...

Bertel; all chromatic scale is the same, Sharpe, Holman, Narell, and Greenidge are clever and smart muscians they break up their chromatic scale's by mixing it into different passages, which gives there music some more COLOR...

BERTEL; when I listen to "Boogsie", I hear the old " Cross Fire and Symphonettes" recycled music, especially when they play "Doris Day's once I had a Secret Love", Boogsie is a combination of Eman Thorpe, Rupert "shadow" Nathanial and Ray Holman respectively...

YES BERTEL; they won their case but, the PanTrinbago/Diaz regime is still in office...

Bertel; the New Visonaries "Persona Non Grata" is due to the fact that they can't see the forrest for the trees, as they are "Blinded" by fear of the Pan Trinbago regime...
