There is no musical reason why this performance did not make it to the final.  So it must be an anti-woman bias.

The band does have a majority of women.  Very good players too.  Go figure.

Well done and you should have been in the finals.  This is not the first time that you have been unfairly judged. Keep delivering that sweet chrystalized sound.

I can not understand why Skiffle Bunch did not move on to the finals. In my humble opinion both arrangement and execution are excellent...better than Siparia Deltones.

WELL DONE. Where were the judges- I think they were in the Rest Room. They certainly did not hear, feel or appreciate such a marvelous arrangement. Maybe they'll get out of their favorite room one day , smell the roses and see that your band did as Crazy says Play Yourself. Listening to this arrangement one would think that it was a Final Night performance. Keep up the good work Shenelle and you'll show them that Woman is Boss.

The most complete band.  A great arrangement that utilized the full use of each pan and got the best out of the players.  Nuff respect!

Well done Skiffle Bunch and young arranger Shenelle Abraham keeps your heads high, one of these days the judges will understand what you guys are doing. Their heads are stuck in a zone that most discerning listeners consider noise. In my view and based on what I heard, your music is sweet, rich, infectious and uniquely arranged. Bravo and looking forward to more sweet music from SB and MA. I suspect that the G Pan makes the band sound fuller and balanced and you accomplished the goal. Blessings.
