Panman needs our support!

Gentlemen, a very gifted and dedicated panman, is stricken with a life threatening illness, which has taken away his ability to play his pan, and as such, earn a living. Winston (Moutha 'B) Phillips, of the famous Phillips brothers ( which includes Andy, Pat and Mikey Phillips) from Woodbrook, Port of Spain, Trinidad, is one of the pioneers of pan in New York. He was a charter member of Tropicans, which later became Moods Pan Groove, and a founding member of Harlem All Stars, as well as arranger, back in the '70's and early '80īs.
Saddly, us panmen do not have the luxury of a saftey net, which we can depend on to get us through such difficult moments like these. However, let's try to do whatever possible for this lifelong member of the international pan fraternity, to lend a hand or at least bring some cheer to the brother.
"B", was in Invaders, together with Cobo Jack and Ray Holman, before joining Starlift, and later returned from New York every year, to perform with Phase 2 pan Groove.
Let's all send out a positive shout to the man. His celphone (in Miami) is (754)204.2502
