The Steelpan Community need to get on the ball, more than 70% of th players in Toronto is under the age of (30) thirty. To these youths, playing steelpan is as canadian as playing hockey. The Steelpan art, represents an inter-generational interaction with the same objectives within the steelband Community. However, the community must be active in securing funding for the long-term developement in terms of the Science and Technology of the Instrument in Canada.

Happy new Year and best wishes for 2010, Hameed

Nice to see Solo Harmonites and Pan Knights reunited.This is probably an under appreciated good news pan story of 2009.

Although Pan Knights had their day in the sun, we old time pan jumbies could never forget the glory days of Solo Harmonites in the 1960's and 1970's. Those were the days when "Solo" (along with "Guinness" and "Despers") ruled the drag at panorama prelims.

Year after year they would take thousands of fans down the drag with them.(Much respect, Earl Rodney, we haven't forgotten you)

Good luck and best wishes, "Solo".

Hameed ... Greetings! Everyone enjoyed and are still commenting about your skill and entertainment in your recent visit. Thanks, they are now spreading the gospel of "PAN" ... what a marvellous instrument! Spoke to 'Stinger' yesterday, said they are in the process of recording and a Demo has already been made, so continue to pursue that which we spoke of with diligence ... keep in touch!
