"Sorry—There is no comparison.  Desperadoes, so far, is not in the same league as Renegades. In fact, silver stars and Skiiffle were better than Desperadoes. "

"Those who neglect the past are doomed to repeat it. After the semis, much the same was true of Fonclaire in 1991 with "Pan by Storm" Pandemonium in 1988 with "Sailing" Phase II in 1986 with "Pan Rising" All Stars in…"

Desperadoes and Renegades joint Panorama winners in 1985 with both bands playing the same tune lord Kitchener's Pan Night and Day, Could history repeat it self for Panorama 2018 with both bands holding the top two positions and playing the same tune Year For Love by Voice.? I am not a Pan Guru or Fortune Teller, Just seeking your opinions here. As one of the top class arrangers said all bands start at zero points for the Finals.See More

Earl; I've ask'ed the same question, Y do all steel bands sound alike, on one could give the answer, so hear goes, several things, (1) most of the arrangers, excluding Holman, Sharpe, Goddard, Greenidge, and Narell who sound alot like Invaders, are forging each other's recycled music, playing in the same keys, or only the lower area of the pan in F C G or D, (2) the tuners are using what is called "Harmonic" tuning which is for string instruments, "PAN" is NOT a string instrument, harmonic tuning is NOT accurate, they say when U strike a note U must hear a chord, when U hit C U must hear the C chord C E G, so when U R playing in C minor U will be still hearing the E instead of the Eb, this causes the tones/notes to clash, which causes a dischord or a humming out of key sound/noise, which allows the instruments to go out of tune easily, (3) the players DANCING and BEATING instead of PLAYING, I could go on and on but I'll stop for now...

EDITED VERSION;This query/trivia is somewhat prejudicial, due to the fact that when "Panorama" first started there were only LARGE BAND'S in the 60s' no single, small, medium, or large band category's, where Pan Am North Stars won in 1963 /1964 and Guiness Cavaliers1965 /1967 both band's won two "Panorama's," each in different year's, no band could ever win two panorama's the same years where "Panorama's" is an annual event, the history of pan/steel band is already DISTORTED, so member Richards, what is your "Gist" or real point???...

hi earl, what about a " remember when? " in panorama! I can think of one, remember when desperadoes was eliminated in the preliminary stages of the event. Rudolph Charles then took what turned out to be a controversial matter to the courts and won. Desperadoes was then reinstated in the panorama, went to the savannah on final night and blew us away with the now famous Bradley's (deceased) arrangement of Nelson's " I going and party tonight." I'm open for correction.
