"I absolutely agree. For me, all the tuners mentioned were excellent. However, Alan Gervais had that intangible thing that the others lacked---genius."

Don,

On behalf of the board of Management and members of Power Stars Steel Orchestra, we are pleased to announce that our band's banner for 2014 will reflect the name of the composition as  "Take Me with You - A Tribute to Cyrus Busby"  for our  Panorama presentation.

Warmest regards

Greetings, Don. Firstly, let me state that is is an honour, I really love your music. The preliminary round of the large bands, is just a formality, because they are all guaranteed automatic qualification into the semifinal, hence the no introduction, slow pace and repeats with some bands. The semifinal round is where their competition actually begins. You came out kind of late for this short season, so may I suggest an early release for next season. I'm looking foward. Again.....love your music.

Hi Curtis: I read your comment on Boogsie holding back his best for the final, I can't

agree with you on this one. Any band that does not give their very best during the

Preliminary stage of the competition should be kicked out, It should not matter if it's

a big name band or a big name arranger. All bands are given a sheet of concerns by

the judges so they can improve on their performance before the final. All Stars always

give their best so does other bands. It's a shame when some so call big band plays

cray but still makes it to the finals, this is not fair play.
