Drummer ditches Starlift

A member of the White Oak Starlift Steel Orchestra is claiming the band did not make it into the Panorama finals because they were set-up by their drummer last Sunday at the semi-finals.

Delano Arthur Seale, a member of the band for the past 51 years, said the drummer who they hired and paid did not show-up for the large band competition at the Queen’s Park Savannah, Port-of-Spain.  He said the drummer worked with the band each time for practice and played until the wee hours of the morning the day before the competition.

On the day, Seale said the band was prepping to play their rendition of Machel Montano’s “Happiest Man Alive” when they noticed the drummer had not arrived. He said a member of the band contacted the drummer and he assured him that he was on his way but he never showed up. The managers of the team were forced to make a last minute decision and placed the iron man in the drummer’s seat.
