Tropical Heatwave Steelpan Combo

Band members mainly from the Moss Side /Whalley Range/ Chorlton / Rushole areas. We used to record at Strawberry Studios, in the days of 10CC (after they changed their name from Giro). We were regarded as one of the top Caribbean bands on the local scene, and Alan helped us greatly. My aka was Trini / Robbie.

I used to live on Mauldeth Road West, at the corner of Alexandra Road South, next to the petrol station. We had a big white Iveco van which was painted Tropical Heatwave on both sides, and was always parked on the grass area next to the petrol station. I used to run the Friday (reggae) nights at Band on the Wall, Swan Street.
