David Goddard

David Goddard was born in Siparia, Trinidad, W.I. and grew up in Vistabella. In 1975 he joined the Philadelphian steelband and [departed] in 1977 to become a member of Skiffle Bunch [at the time a 'pan round the neck' steel orchestra]. There, his pan prowess reached new heights.  He played the single second pan; and when the band graduated to the status of conventional steel orchestra, Goddard opted for the double second, perfecting the instrument.

David has performed in many of the country's major Steel Band competitions such as the annual Steel Band Panorama, the Steel Band music festival and a host of other related competitive arenas.

David went on tour with Skiffle Bunch to London, England where he performed at the Commonwealth Institute Carnival Music Village and teamed up with Calypso King, David Rudder.  He also traveled to Wales and Edinburgh, Scotland to perform at their Music Village.  In 1987 the tour and performances were repeated, along with trips to Brampton and Toronto, Canada for the Caribana Festival and related events. Martinique was added to Goddard's growing list of tour performances in 1988, which also saw a return to London, England.  On special invitation from the Venezuela president in 1989, Goddard was part of the visiting contingent.  A more thorough European tour followed in 1993, with stops in Switzerland, Austria, Sweden, Germany, Italy and more.

In 2003 Goddard retired from the band to concentrate on his artistic talent for painting and song writing. There will be many more musical achievements by David Goddard in the future.
