Petrotrin Siparia Deltones went home yesterday morning without its $350,000 second place cheque because of a pending investigation into its performance at the Small Conventional Steel Orchestra Final at Skinner Park, San Fernando.

It was just about 1.30 a.m. when Deltones came on stage but after the count, officials found the band had too many players. The maximum number of players in this category is 60.

Officials said Deltones had over 70 players and there was a heated discussion between the band’s management and the Panorama officials. This went on for some time until it was agreed that all players should leave the stage and file in one at a time.
