I love to see stories of the pioneers of the Steelband, I get learn so much about the Instrument that we all love.

"The power of the Steel Band as 'social cohesive force', from its inception to date, is matched by no other."

Ungratefullness is indeed a most serious crime. Hence it is incumbent on all within the Steelpan Movement to continue to give God thanks and praise for the gift of the Pan and the Steelpan Pioneers.  Pan forever!!!

Some years back Sterling visited Dortmund and took part in a rehearsal session of The PanGanG - now CalypsonicSteelOrchestra. I felt that within a  moment he brought in his very special energy that keeps us going to the present day. Thank you very much, Sterling Betancourt!
