When you read any article pertaining to pan, you will no doubt come across aliases for the pannists, arrangers and pan makers.

Some of these aliases have been given at an early age and may not necessary have anything to do with pan (Len “Boogsie” Sharpe).

Others may have been given an alias in relation to their services to pan (Rudolph “The Hammer” Charles).

Although the full names of individuals have been used throughout this website, you may find it difficult to be in the company of any steelpan enthusiast and not refer to these individuals by their aliases.
