clevoy depradine replied to Pan Times's discussion No end to steelband war
"“No end to steelband war”  After taking less than a second to digest what I just read in this article from The New Today newspaper, I have to confess there wasn’t anything shocking, surprising or revealing for pause, except…"

clevoy depradine replied to Pan Times's discussion Kees: I am thankful to Exodus
"Panorama like no other competition begins and starts from the Panyard. While supporters drive the energy of the band, the song is what propelled them to the top. Changing the song one week before competition can either prove the magical talents and…"

clevoy depradine replied to Pan Times's discussion Finals Results for Medium Conventional Steel Orchestras - Trinidad & Tobago National Panorama 2019
"I stayed up to hear Exodus (Savannah Grass), then went to my bed convinced it was difficult for them to keep Grass green in dry season. The internet judges (supporters of various bands) pontificating on this one and on that one winning...After…"

Got Carnival - Fancy Sailor Mas

"The makings of the Fancy Sailor Mas; gender and age neutral with one thing in common, chip and fun. It is not a sprint type of Mas but a pleasurable crawl."

clevoy depradine replied to Pan Times's discussion Judge rules: Exodus free to play Savannah Grass at Panorama final
"Judge ruled in favor of Exodus. Hope their ‘Savannah Grass’ don’t turn into mush. Anything under par would deserve a severe licking with Kitchener’s Bull. Pan Trinbago now must stipulate so others can’t replicate in…"

clevoy depradine replied to Pan Times's discussion Exodus changes tune for finals
"Agree with you 100% - A scandal it is not, free for all it is not. Few bands can do what Exodus is attempting even if they tried. Different if bands were going into the competition with points accumulated from the Prelims. Now the Pan Tabey has…"

clevoy depradine replied to Pan Times's discussion Exodus changes tune for finals
"Again, unless the adjudicators are judging name and past fame and not the song executed the night in question, the ‘free for all’ concerns are muted. Legislate the rules for future Panoramas if this is as serious as many are making it to…"

clevoy depradine replied to Pan Times's discussion BigUp to Chantal Esdelle for an awesome job on the ttt 2019 Panorama Semi Finals broadcast
"Must agree, this young lady did not imposed her bias on the listeners or indulged herself pontificating unnecessarily on any ego trip. Well done, hope to hear from her again....breath of fresh air."

clevoy depradine replied to Pan Times's discussion Exodus changes tune for finals
"Pan Trinbago should reconsider their decision, not because of fairness  or unfairness, but simply because the Association was not guided by stipulation (written) and therefore it gives the appearance of bias, emotionalism and overreaching.…"

clevoy depradine replied to Pan Times's discussion Pan Trinbago says no to Exodus song change
"Pan Trinbago ruling: Exodus can’t change song for the finals. This is another contentious issue on the plate of Pan Trinbago to marinate in. Rules and guidelines must be written and not based on subjectivity, moods, wimps or fancy. Next is the…"

clevoy depradine replied to Pan Times's discussion Exodus changes tune for finals
"But is it stipulated, is it written? If not, all is fair game. Now it gives the Association time to pause in order to make changes if necessary. It is not an easy feat, so Ican’t see a pattern developing here. Good conversation piece though."

clevoy depradine replied to Pan Times's discussion Exodus changes tune for finals
"I concur; what brought you in, should take you out. Having said that, and I have stated before, unless it is ‘written’ there isn’t a violation to voice objections...It give those sulking because of their placement or elimination a…"

clevoy depradine replied to Pan Times's discussion Exodus changes tune for finals
"To each his own; unless the Steelband Association in their by-laws (writings) stipulates these guidelines, who say arrangers can’t give the judges signs, or even erect signs to achieve their means. If you have judges who can be influenced by…"

clevoy depradine replied to Pan Times's discussion Exodus changes tune for finals
"Can the bands eliminated from the Panorama finals challenge the recent decision made by Exodus to change the song they were judged on to qualify? This may be a next point of contention. Exodus decision in my opinion is a very strategic one (take a…"

clevoy depradine replied to Cecil hinkson's discussion PICK THE FIRST FIVE IN 2019 PANORAMA...
"1. Renegades  2. Invaders 3. Phase 2 4. Despers/Skiffle  5. All Stars"
Feb 18
clevoy depradine replied to Claude Gonzales's discussion WHAT A PERFORMANCE!!! I GOT A MUSICAL CONCUSSION!!!
"Wonderful! Again Steel Orchestras should focus on concerts and not only on Competitions. Solo versatility and stage shows such as these; musical excursions....themes and tributes in Steel combined with others. Supporters should be be eagerly looking…"
