LEROI BOLDON

Posted on June 26, 2012 at 9:40am 1 Comment

I would like to encourage WHEN STEEL TALKS to conduct an interview with LEROI BOLDON, who was a hands-on witness to the early development of the steelband movement. Here is a man who has spent his entire life living, loving and supporting, not just the pan, but the culture of Trinidad and Tobago from the streets of Port-of-Spain to the shores of California.

His is an informative and historical story of one man's unheralded contribution to the artform, that should be shared with the…

Permit me to add this, although it might not be another 2017 record. Cannot remember when last it happened though:

Lady Adanna sang in position 1 in the National Calypso Monarch Competition.....she ended up in the last position when the results were released.

Chalkdust sang in position 17 (last). He ended up being first when the results were released.

Just a co-incident, I suppose!

Give thanks for the feedback. I admit I am lazy at times when proofreading (or not) my posts. I will work on being more precise in the future.

CLAUDE Mi AMIGO, I'm a bit late on this comment, but DIAZ has taken $5 million TT dollars each year since he has been made President of Pan Trinbago, NOT $5 million in the six years, he's been there, he bought a new car when he became President and build two new houses, well what do U expect when the PT Central Executive Committee lets DIAZ signs CHECKS ???

Yes / Si  CLAUDE Mi Amigo, FIDELITY is warranted when the tuners fail to MODULATE / FINE TUNE their work or maintain it in proper measure, and where the ARRANGERS  has fail to implement UNISON and DISCIPLINE there players, in their work, FIDELITY is ACCURACY in sound reproduction, and RHYTHMIC PATTERNS is the rate of speed of a musical piece ...

CLAUDE Mi Amigo; don' t worry your head to much, it look's like I have to try and bring down Diaz for U GUY'S, all by myself, two weeks ago my Attorney and Agent in T&T, registered a "Pre Action Protocol Correspondent" to President Keith Diaz and Pan Trinbago, in reference to non payment of 2015 Panorama performance, with the ensemble I tuned and played quad cellos " PANATICS",  every one else in the ensemble got paid since June 2015, all except myself, willful malicious spite work by Diaz and his regime, they also spite the ensemble in 2013 and 2014, in 2013 the ensemble qualified for the semi finals by points, there excuses was that they had to bring in a Tobago band, who did not make more points than "Panatics" made, in 2014, they said that they didn't have the tune/song the band played, that was Y they did not make the semis again, now this year they showed their real color/reason Y, therefore; they have 30 days upon recipe of said correspondent to comply with a monthly interest, or a costly $$$$$$.oo claim will be sought/filed against  Diaz and Pan Trinbago, for that ABROGATION, and I ain't taking any prisoners, so guy's watch for the fireworks...
