Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
We note the passing of Lionel “Tanker” George on June 17, 2017. He was originally a member of the Casablanca Steel Orchestra and a part of that exodus led by Philmore “Boots” Davidson which established City Syncopators. He was an acknowledged skilled player of the guitar pan before he moved to the five bass with equally acclaimed accomplishment.
He is seated on the right and next to him is Carlton “Zigilee” Barrow Constantine of Bar 20 (centre) and Oscar “Bogart” Pile of Casablanca (1922-2008).
