Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
Some Panmen of the 1950s
by Ian Lambie
I am fully aware of the excellent contributions made by Ellie Mannette and Andrew “Pan” de la Bastide to the advancement of “pan” in the USA and by Anthony “Tony” Williams at home. I decided to write about lesser known pioneers and to include some “College Boys” who were beating pan in the 1950s.
Reading this posting (although I did not read the whole thing) made me realize what a MAJOR CONTRIBUTION PATRICK ARNOLD MADE to GLOBALIZING PAN MUSIC.
How come that nothing was mension about Errol Zephyrine,And he is from Invaders

Ian, I recall Silver Stars playing Back Bay Shuffle on Carnival Monday, coming down Frederick Street. In the recording someone shouts "Lambie". Were they calling you?
