…Concert Proceeds to Aid Carnival Bands

Andazzi

According to show promoter Andazzi, the event also aims at assisting the local carnival bands with preparations for this year’s Carnival Road March.

 

Andazzi, Promoter, Flavaz Entertainment

“Flavaz Entertainment is known for doing the soca madness every year where all the carnival bands come out and we have a dancing competition and it’s just a great show.  So last year we really wanted to expand on that, you know, we really wanted to catch up with the rest of the Caribbean.  Like if you notice all the other Caribbean countries, they’re really like a carnival destination and they’re partying for months, you know and this soca music and this carnival vibe.  And this is a part of our culture, so we got together with NICH and the Carnival Commission and the Carnival Association and we said, you know, let’s do an official, a launch of the soca season every year and make it a little bigger and have people come out and be aware because these groups that you see in the carnival road march they’ve been preparing since October of last year for this year’s carnival, you know.  So it helps with their road march efforts.”

 

Tickets for Saturday’s concert can be bought from any of the senior carnival bands, including Fantasy, Mother Nature, Jam Jam, Soca Mocha and the Titans.
