Pan Expressions Champion 2019 - New Dimension Steel Orchestra

"Great music!!!!!!! Is that Duvone Stewart conducting them? It sure looks like him body language...must be. I don't really hear the original song...the Simon & Garfunkle one? "

Brian Pinkey replied to Russell Providence's discussion DRUM FACTORY PRODUCTION EXCEEDS DEMAND
"The video posted by Russel Providence here is informative and thank you. I do hope the workers wear hearing protection around all the machinery (not seen in the video though)...so they don't lose their ability to enjoy the sweet music that will…"

Brian Pinkey replied to odw's discussion Game-changer to Digital Dustbin: Why iTunes Is Shutting Down
"One major problem with Itunes is that what one paid for was the permission to listen to the music! One did not own anything else. A court case in California occured where a large body of music was willed by the deceased to his children. Apple…"

Brian Pinkey replied to Bugs's discussion So did Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber just steal KES The Band's "Savannah Grass" ?
"First of all, I do NOT appreciate listening to any Justin Bleeber song, but I did to hear the controversy! It certainly tries to sound like "Savanah Grass", while not copying it outright. I have little doubt that Kes' tune was the…"

PHASE II PAN GROOVE - "Jam it with You" by Ray Holman (1995)

"I was blessed to be there in person that magical night!! A fabulous Panorama, and I came home a different soul than before I went! That year, Renegades played 3rd, and I said..."there are a lot of great bands still to play, but I think we just…"

Brian Pinkey replied to Pan Times's discussion Let Tobago host a Panorama final
"I don't think moving the medium band finals to Tobago would be wise. There is not the infrastructure there to move thousands of people and instruments over, where will they sleep, eat and when go back to Trinidad proper? I also don't…"

Brian Pinkey replied to Pan Times's discussion A Message from Exodus Steel Orchestra
"Savannah Grass is a far better song than Rag Storm, and I had hoped some of the bands would pick it for Panorama. So I am glad that Exodus was able to change tunes for the finals. Two weeks isn't a lot of time to arrange and learn it. I do hope…"
