Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
True...I fully understand where you are coming from...but remember it was an "oops" moment,someone put the wrong picture in there...forgive and forget..this is pan on the net.
In as much that you're still on this almost one year later, Chris Copeland, you appear not to be familiar with the hijinks and outright contempt of those who organize the NY Panorama annually, that being the WIADCA organization. For them, holding the panorama has always been simply a 'cash cow' event; it brings in the most patrons for them over their week of activities, but the majority of their establishment, utterly despise steelband people.
This is not a 'forgive and forget' issue. WIADCA has always had a nasty and very virulent attitude toward the NY steelband community, who never have the balls to tell them to get lost, except for some that did in that one year back in 2001. Being the gluttens for abuse that NY steelbands are, every single one of them went crawling back with their tails between their legs in 2003, and the abuse resumed and increased from year to year.
So that picture was not a real "oops" moment, either WST was just being polite, or they are not as bright as I give them credit to be. That picture was really a result of an "F*** you" attitude from WIADCA to the bands, because the bands can think of nothing else but panorama, that's all most of them, and their players appear to live for, so WIADCA knows the steelbands will always be there in their Panorama unless they have an alternative.
Or perhaps you have another exlplanation for how WIADCA has hosted the Panorama more than what, forty years, yet had to use a picture of a Grenada band to promote their New York panorama? They have put out a magazine on some years, and have pics of the NY steelbands. Please Chris. Get real.
