IT IS TIME STEEL ORCHESTRAS BECOME OWNERS

Steel Orchestras have to get together and brainstorm how to get into the Transportation and the Chroming of Pans Business.

I may not have the dollar, you may not have the dollar, he/she may not have the dollar. However, if WE get into COLLECTIVE ENTREPRENEURSHIP, WE WILL HAVE THE DOLLARS.

From 2007 through 2017, The Large Bands Panorama Finalists have grossed $60,750,000.00 in prize monies.

It is time the Steel Orchestras work so they can benefit.

The Truckers, The…

Carnival Stories: Panorama is Carnival in rhythm and motion*

"Passion, precision, percussion. The panman dedicates sleepless nights and countless hours to memorizing arrangements of calypsos for competition, the Panorama. The necessity for that element of competition in Carnival is still being debated." Photo © 1997,…

Apology

Word has reached me that my expression of disappointment with the speed at which CAL Invaders delivered their rendition at the Oval Car Park at the Preliminaries for the Large Bands Category has hurt or even angered members of the Invaders fraternity.

 

I take this opportunity to unreservedly apologize for the negativity it has caused and to stress that there was absolutely no malice meant.

 

I remain

Yours respectfully…

I NEED THE FOLLOWING INFOMATION.

Dear WST Members,

                                   I have the playing positions of the panorama winners from 1963 to 2016, except for 1968, 1969, 1971, 1989 and 1990.

At present, more winners have emerged performing at #8 and #10.

Most in the pan world do not like performing at position #1. However, would you believe that more steel orchestras have won more times playing at position #1 than #2, #3, #4, #5, #11, #12 and #13.

Congratulations to Lauderhill Steel Ensemble on you victory at Florida's 2016 Panorama

My thanks to all who complimented our Panorama Victory. I am mostly thankful that although I did go to Trinidad to ask for help from 3 Desperadoes panists, it did not come to fruition. No one from Desperadoes performed with LSE at the Florida Panorama on October 8th, 2016. LSE was the laughing stock of the pan world in Florida. Now that they won on their second attempt at Panorama, some are taking cheap shots, such as "we used players from Desperadoes," "we played under tents" and "we knew…
