Brief History

I started playing professionally in CAIRO, a steel band in Belle Vue at the age of 10 yrs old in 1956, just before my 11th  B/day in April, being born April 2nd 1945, in 1958, I started playing the 4ths & 5ths tenor pan, where my neighbour, an original member of North Stars Ronald "becky" Montrose taught me, the "Ping Pong Rondo" a piece composed by Lt Joseph Nathanial Griffith, arranger of the TASPO, and a piece called "Skokiean",  "beckey" took me to practice at night for that carnival season to play on the road, the tune played by North Stars was "Cute Chick" other tenor players were; Herman "rock" Johnston, Fredrick "Tucker" Lovell, and of course "becky", Jap, Null, Lakie, Pellum, Roy Forde, Mc Carty, et al, I blossom as a player through the years, and by 1960 under Anthony Williams and "becky" I could play with the best of them holding my own, Johnston and Tucker fell ill, and was hospitalized in 1958, "Becky and Null" moved on up to play double seconds, as I was able to hold the band together, Johnston returned late  in 1960, and started to help Williams sink and tune as I watch them both, we prepaired for the 1962 Music Festival after carnival, we learn't 3 pieces before "Voices of Spring" the first was a piece by the Late John Donaldson called "Boca Chimes", then "Angel Serenade by Schubert, "Humorous" by Bizet, then Voices, I'll complete this later on..

Did you even read the first line of the post?:

"Tony Williams was the first to apply the cycle of fifths on the steel Pan."

There is no argument there. 

At 4:05pm on October 8, 2015, Charlene Lusk said…

My Dear Sir, Tony Williams was the first to apply the cycle of fifths on the steel Pan. However, the cycle of fifths has been around for centuries. The first time it appeared in text books was around the late 1600s and it was around before that according to Western European Music. So, Mr.Tony would have to be Dracula to have invented the cycle of fifths.

For those of you who don't already know the cycle of fifths demonstrates the relationship amongst the twelve pitches of the Chromatic scale. if what you say is true then no one before Tony was born would have been able to play a chromatic scale. These factors relate directly to Bach and the Tempered scale. These artifacts of music have been around before you Tony and I were born so try a study in western European Music. It would help since you are obviously not a student of music.

A lot a good history, but what year did Mikey start playing with Invaders?

Because I started playing during the lent of '58 right after liebestraum and Michael and Mickey was not there as yet. The first stage side was picked later that year and I was one of the players that was selected.

Charlene Lusk. with all dew respect I am having problems with players going back and forth between StarLift and Invaders. I don't think Ellie was too happy when those guys left and form Starlift.

At 2:48pm on September 24, 2015, Charlene Lusk said…

Hello My Man, In the last set of names after you mentioned Erroll Zephryn the players that are mentioned were guys that frequented the yard, not members of the Original Shell Invaders. The Original members of the stage side was as follows:

Ellie Manette (captain,) Emanuel (Jack) Riley, Winston (Mouthabee) Phillip, Erroll(Augmented) Zephryn, Clayton Green, Ansel Joseph, Roy Rollock. When we played "In a Monastery Garden" Ray Holman was added to the second section. He was always a fast learner but he was not allowed to play full time because he was going to college. He therefore came one night and learned the entire classic and played with the band on stage for the first time at Queen's Hall, David (Splav) Wadell was also added for the festival on seconds. Also added during the Festival were Laurence ,Sidney, Bailey, and Boothman, Mikey came long afterwards. Most of the younger players were really Starlift players who would go back and forth. As you would notice they all ended up with Starlift before they went onto Phase11. tThat period was the part of the history that always get mixed up. That's when the double seconds were introduced along with Double Guitars, and finally the Triple Cellos which I saw being built with my own eyes. As a matter of fact, I used to hit notes for Ellie as he tuned the cellos. Why don't the powers that be reach out to some of the people that came out of that band such as Ray. Zephryn is still around. Invest some time into the band and lift them up. They are responsible for giving the pan community all these different styles of pan and innovation that is still used today. They were once called the Harps remember?  A. Joseph
