Congratulations to Desperadoes on their victory , and especially to Zanda.

Smart move , Zanda.

You had to arrange for a top "tong" band for your talents to finally be recognized as a top , big time arranger !

Well done Despers!!!I Hope this win can help reduce some of the madness  and unite the community of the hill. This was one of the better panoramas in a very long time. It put some perspective  that it is not a two band competition any more.( Phase and Massy).With Novas now, it is going to shake things up a bit. The future of pan music looks brighter with the amount of youth getting involved.

Yea, Big up to Desperadoes. Great performance.

Larrrdeee…you can't get a closer result than that…lol

Congrats. to LEGENDARY  DESPERADOES and ZANDA. You All Made us Believers. Despers has returned to its Glory. I am Very Pleased and Happy to See The return and Rise of the Phoenix. The Key to Victory was Getting ZANDA. Despers returned Playing Despers Music. Bless.

Reminiscent of our 1960s days: "Triple Crown in 1966; People's Choice, Champion of Champions, Governor General's Trophy in 1967; and my favorite Carols and Classics in steel  1964 - 1967, Congratulations to the pan players (Despers stop beating pan in 1964 and begun to "play pan") you are back on track keep it up.  From the Heart of TEXAS

Hi Michael this is your old neighbor.I am glad to know that u are still
around and still rootin for the greatest band ever. I remember you, Sealy(Cajuca St.)
and Trevor Trim being the guys who represented Morvant playin in Despers.Big respect for you guys.
Hope you and family are well and enjoying a good life.Desperadoes Forever!!!!!!!!. Happy Easter.

Panorama killing pan.  Plenty noise & vigour. Bim bim bang bang!   Supremely executed yes but ultimately boring and no different from what it was 25 years ago.  So no progress.  Without progress, it dies.

Boring to you….the quality of arrangements, instruments, playing and much more have vastly improved from 25 years ago…you clearly have not been paying attention or are otherwise biased...
