Carl & Nigel Chase along with Pan Coalition have now become a permanent fixture at our Montreal International Steelpan Festival. They are well respected, admired and loved by our Montreal Community. Congratulations to you all on a job well done and we again welcome you all and we look forward to your participation in the 2011 Festival where we intend to include a "Pan Parade"
