HD on the road!!

Leave it to Machel Montano to add something novel to the Carnival season. Sure, a tour bus is nothing new in the foreign market but for Trinidad and Tobago this is the first time a local artiste has his own tour bus! I am looking forward to seeing it on the road and the following article from today's Trinidad Express gives more information on the Machel Montano HD Bus.



Look for the spanking-new Machel Montano HD bus coming soon to a venue near you.

In keeping with the 2007 HD concept, Montano and company have refurbished a 20-year-old PTSC bus and customised it with all the latest gadgets and gizmos.

There will be no mistaking this bus with its big chrome rims, HD-themed exterior paint job and lighting system, complete with reflective tape and neon signage .

Inside holds an entertainment centre, walk-through closet and of course, a bedroom.

In the entertainment centre you will find: a 42-inch plasma screen on an actuator; with ports for an Ipod, PlayStation 3 and Wireless Internet. The middle of the bus houses a walk-through closet space and toilet facility. Aside from a large comfy bed, there's also a 32-inch LCD monitor hidden behind a mirror in the bedroom.

The sound system is out of this world with MTX Subwoofers, JVC DVD Head units, 8' speakers, tweeters, crossovers and transformers galore.

Betweeen the inside and the outside, the bus will use roughly 12,000 watts of power and therefore has its own generator. The driver will have the benefit of reverse cameras, motion sensors all the way around and night vision cameras, as well as a fully-refurbished engine and fuel tank.

Of course, everything inside is HD personalised: from the microwave, to the lights, to the windows.

The main sponsors of the project are Republic Bank, bmobile, Courts, Lewis Appliances, Signwave, Blue Waters and PTSC, who will all benefit when the bus hits the road for extensive promotions, CD tours and merchandising.

Put together in just over three weeks, the entire process of making of the bus will be shown as a special feature programme on Synergy TV.

Majorette gone... One more section left in TRIBE

Well finally, Majorette is sold out, only Bat backline remains as both the frontline and male section is sold out. That's right folks, three weeks before Carnival and we are now on the cusp of TRIBE being completely sold out. Seems like the new headpiece for Majorette worked, pity they did not do the same for Bat backline because that is a cute costume though the headpiece killed it for me.



On the other hand there seems to be a "costume exodus" on Carnival Junction! If you are still looking for costumes in both Island People or TRIBE there are more and more listings popping up every day. My girl friend sold her Soleil Brule costume and is now in her "dream" section of Sacred Sand (bought the costume through Carnival Junction) lots of costume bartering, switching and selling going on through Carnival Junction. So there is still hope that you can get a costume in that special section even though it might be sold out!
