Reginald "Panky" Sobers was like family to me. He was very generous, funny, yet always filled with good ideas. He was the one who got Boogsie to work with Silhouettes Steel Orch in 1998 which produced one of the biggest bands to enter NEW York's panorama (140 playars). Again,he was very involved in the calypso shows in Marsicans panyard on Sundays which brought us large crowds. My condolences to his family and friends. Gone but will never be forgotten.
.......My heartfelt condolences to his family, he will be sorely missed !!!
Well another one has left us. He will be telling his jokes upstairs with the others that also left,Condolences to the Sobers Family from myself and the Golden Harps International Family. RIP my Friend.
I didn't know Panky. But, i know a lot about him. His brother Bert, and i are friends for more than 40 years. We now live here in Ocala, Florida. Condolences to the family. As a matter of fact, when Panky died, Bert was on the phone with their nephew, Keith.
My condolences to Panky's family and friends. I remember him well from Silhouettes. He will be missed.
