The event will take place at their private school “Salah’s Steelpan Academy” and will be held for two days on May 23rd, and May 24th 2009, from 7pm on both days.
Some of the Groups Achievements include five days at the Montreal International Jazz Festival and numerous high level events across the province of Quebec.

Combining with ‘Salah’s Steelpan Academy’, they have won the Panorama competition four times in Montreal and four times in Toronto including the last two years of 2007, 2008 at both places. Accredited to them are three Compact Disks. They have also set up a steelpan store “Steelpan Plus” in Montreal with a franchise in Toronto run by Hameed Shaqq. They have their own recording company ‘Salahpan’ which is the same company that has published six steelpan text books to date, authored by Salah Wilson. Three of the books are available in French.
The family group introduced Steelpan programs to the public schools of Montreal since 1991 and are currently in seven English schools and one French school. They are also responsible for putting in place the ‘Montreal International Steelpan Festival’ which is an annual event that falls around the last weekend in June. This year is the ninth anniversary, it will be held on June 28th, 2009. It is also referred to as ‘Montreal’s Panorama’. Steelbands from Boston, Toronto, Trinidad and Montreal have been participants.
