Thanks for the fond memories Glenroy. You just took me back to my younger days when my musical career was was in full swing with the then Pan Am Jet North Stars Steel Orchestra. This is for the history books. I was the youngest to play and tour on 5 and 6 basses with the orchestra. Also with the then BWIA Sun Jet Steel Orchestra. Thanks again and Gods blessings. Kenneth Panam Clarke

Thanks GRJ. They were not only CHAMPIONS , they were also our HEROES for they were FIRST in the FIRST and they set such a very high standard for others to emulate that I believe it is one of the main reasons why Steelpan music as excelled so rapidly in such a short space of time. I say " Tony is the man in this GREAT BAND" .
