Biography: Sir Alan and the Calypso Ponzi Schemers
Sir Alan was briefly a Trinidadian from 1969 to 1970. He gained his original stake in calypso music at the height of the big band calypso era in the days when the Mighty Sparrow and Lord Kitchener battled it out for the calypso crown.
The Mighty Carol invested heavily in calypso futures during her time with the Oberlin Can Consortium. She leveraged that experience as a member of Arms Akimbo Steel Band, later using those dividends to found the Stateside Steel Band. Lord Daniel studied percussion at the university level and is a Wammie award-winning sound engineer. On a recent excursion to the Caribbean, he discovered that the young ladies can’t get enough of the calypso beat. That fact alone was enough to send him down the vagabond path of the calypsonian.
