Clive Bradley - is a prominent arranger for the West Indian Tobacco (WITCO) Desperadoes Steel Orchestra having a unique style that can be described as deliberate. Most of his musical scores are received very favourably by the steel pan players and have stood the test of time. Clive Bradley can be described as an arranger with the ability to communicate his scores with precision through a guitar, a recorder and through his voice. His style is to rework the introduction at the finale with a short summary then a finale. Some of his many notable arrangements include:"Sa Sa Ya," Margie," "Bassman" " Fever" "Pan in Harmony" "Crawford" "Pan in the Twenty-first Century" "Rebecca" and "The Jammer."

His arrangements with WITCO Desperadoes were winners in 1976 "Pan in Harmony," 1977 "Crawford" and 1983, "Rebecca." One arrangement that is highly acknowledged is Bradley's "Sailing" where the musicians used the pan sticks (without rubber) to create the sound of falling rain.

In 1998, he won the National Steelpan Panorama competition arranging David Rudder's "High Mas" for the Arima NuTones steel orchestra. Bradley took Nutones to victory with "High Mas" with interpretations of two classics: "In a Monastery's Garden" and Handel's "Hallelujah Chorus." Bradley and Desperadoes set the Queens Park Savannah alive in 1999 with their rendition "In my House." They won the North Zone competition scoring 460 points, then went on to win the National Panorama competition. This February, the Bradley and Desperadoes musical arrangement and execution of "Picture on my Wall"earned them National Panorama champions of Y2K carnival.
