Happy Birthday Steve Achaiba.

Steve is the first of six men to win panorama as a pannist and later as an arranger. Do you all know who the other 5 men are?

let me try. Lennox "Bobby" Mohammed, Earl Rodney, Len "Boogsy" Sharpe, I'm not sure about the other two.

Clifton, You got one correct (lol)

The 6 are: Steve Achaiba with Cavaliers in 1965; Herschel Puckerin with Starlift in 1969; Leon Edwards with   All Stars in 1973; Len Sharpe with Starlift in 1969; Robert Greenidge with Desperadoes in 1966 and                   Pelham Goddard with Starlift in 1969. I wrote my 6th book in June entitled,                                         "Desperadoes<>Rudolph Charles Era<>and Beyond" 

What about Yohan Popwel with All Stars and Michelle Huggins-Watts with Phase II?


Hello Bugs,

                   You know your pan history, but you forgot to list Ken Professor and Duvone Stewart.

You are quite correct. I should have specified Large Bands only (lol)

Thanks for your professionalism in responding to my answer. We pan people can disagree, but we must resolve differences amicably. Thanks again
