Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
FIVE MONTHS OF PANORAMA!!! (Practice have to start in OCTOBER and we going straight through FEBRUARY.)
Good strategy to TIE UP PAN MEN HEAD!!!
Most of the single and small bands do back in times. 2020 music will be out around October.
Mr. Jules once said that he didn't see the purpose of the single pan bands and that Pan had long progress past that. The single pan band revival was a very bad idea that came from Patrick Arnold. Most of the changes done under Patrick Arnold have led to disastrous results.
The issue with the small bands won't change by simply changing the time of the year.
The Medium band finals in Tobago might work well. In fact if done with proper planing it could be a very big deal.
Ah man blaming BOOGSIE for all these DESPERATE CHANGES and the PANORAMA OBSESSION ... this PAN TING real sweet, yes!!!
Dem EXPATS who going and buy the LARGE BAND PAY PER VIEW doh want no two hour show -- yuh know!!! And you cannot put 15 LARGE BANDS in the FINALS because at least 10 of them will be playing UTTER GARBAGE.
So if that 2019 PAY PER VIEW cheque gone to allyuh head -- allyuh going and kill that goose after it lay ah second egg in 2020.
8 months and 200 meetings later and all that EXECUTIVE could come up with is EXPANDING PANORAMA.
What about all them promised changes in the MANIFESTO?
This is ridiculous.
As a regular visitor to Trinidad for Carnival, the only viable option would be for me to attend the Large Band Finals only as going to Tobago, just for Medium Band Finals, would be out of my financial reach and I suspect a lot of other visitors.
This is surely a money making scheme ... but not for the pan men and women.
So much for trying to tap into the global market.
Shame on you, Beverley. You haven't done anything constructive for pan since your election and you are only thinking about you and Tobago. No-one else!
The pan world stretches further than Trinidad and Tobago ...
For those who VOTED for CHANGE...Elections has consequences!

Nikita T. Charles This is shit.
The majority of Trinidad & Tobago steelbands by far gave no objections to these proposed changes. These changes would not have been possible if the steelbands themselves did not give their blessings. Anybody here on this forum have better ideas that could create the success much needed for Pan?? Please say your piece.
