Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
I do hope they change something in the following years. A "show" lasting from 9:30 a.m. on a Sunday and not finishing until 3:15 Monday morning is not repeat NOT good business.
These days the normal attention span of humans is not very long.
Having a semi final with 30 small bands is utter crap. This is not to say that participating bands are not worth a spot, on the contrary, they are just as deserving. However the show cannot continue with its current format. It's far too long.
The media coverage from T & T reflected this problem. CTV cut their show, 91.1 Talk Radio coverage was good but not brilliant. As usual the announcers were not well informed.
58 Bands in total? Give me a break!
14 Small bands
and 14 Large
42 bands maximum.
Better organisation in the logistics needed.
And for world-wide consumption a dedicated online coverage even on pay-per-view would go along long way to raising some cash.
Please Trinbago wakeup and smell the coffee. don't be so parochial.
Imagine 6:15 a.m., 3 hours after competition finish , still no results.
Come on! WHY COULD THESE NOT HAVE BEEN RELEASED AS THE SEGMENTS FINISHED?
Something must change.
Agree with you 100%, Randi. Raise it in another WST forum, nuh?
we only get exchanges here
next year 65 bands
it used to be spread over 2 days
no more greens
tv coverage after all these years - POOR
My finals picks are: Despers, Renegades, All Stars, Phase 2, Exodus...
andrew farfan, good choice. lol
Silver Stars, Exodus, Desperadoes, All Stars, Renegades.
