Ian Franklin speaks on the Small Band Panorama (I actually like IAN FRANKLIN)!!!

THE INAUGURAL SMALL BANDS 2020 PANORAMA IS OVER. I THINK THERE SHOULD BE A LAW AGAINST ANY ENTITY PLAYING LOUD MUSIC AT THE SAME TIME ANY TRINIDAD & TOBAGO NATIONAL FINALIST IS PERFORMING. TONIGHT I HEARD THE AMPLIFIED SOUND FROM AN ENTITY THAT HOSTED AN EVENT NEAR THE SAVANNAH WHERE THE PANORAMA WAS HELD. THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN COMMUNICATION BETWEEN PAN TRINBAGO AND THAT ENTITY TO LOWER ITS VOLUME WHEN ANY BAND IS ABOUT TO PERFORM.

These are the results for the first 10 of the 14 Small bands Panorama.

(01)<>285-UPTOWN FASCINATORS from Tobago

(02)<>282-T&T DEFENCE FORCE {Defending Champs}

(03)<>281-GENISIS PAN GROOVE

(04)<>277-T&TEC EASTSIDE SYMPHONY from Tobago

(05)<>272-WESTSIDE SYMPHONY from Tobago

(06)<>271-FASCINATORS

(06)<>271-HIGHLANDERS

(06)<>271-GOLDEN HANDS

(09)<>270-ROADBLOCK with a 16 year old arranger

(10)<>267-HARVARD HARPS

Now that I read Ian's posting and saw that 3 of the TOP FIVE BANDS were from TOBAGO -- ah get vex till meh eye get red; only wickedness in my head; call the MENTAL HOSPITAL; come quick to avoid a funeral.

All dem CRACKSHOTS in TRINIDAD playing in five and six bands and dey let DEM TOBAGONIANS come and lick dem up in the MECCA of the STEELBAND.

Well, AMERICA have more PAN THAN TRINIDAD ... so maybe we are not really THE MECCA anymore. And with a VISIONLESS LEADER like BEVERLEY RAMSEY-MOORE ... we might wake one day and hear that steelband come from -- the UNITED KINGDOM ... America done start already setting up PAN FACTORY to MANUFACTURE we OWN CULTURE.

"THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN COMMUNICATION BETWEEN PAN TRINBAGO AND THAT ENTITY TO LOWER ITS VOLUME WHEN ANY BAND IS ABOUT TO PERFORM."

Think about that statement on a NATIONAL LEVEL ....
