Bite by the pan jumbie is 1967. Apprenticed to Ellie 1985-1992. Formed my steel band and drum manufacturing company, Trinidad North, in 1989, same year i played with Renegades in Panorma- Somebody. Serious student of all things pan related, especially the history of how and why it all began. Have the utmost respect and love for the early pioneers and what they have accomplished. Believe pan is far from dead and working as hard as i can to promote and advance the atrform that was so beautifully born in trinidad in the 1930's!!
Would love to hear from any and all pan lovers especially those older than me.
