"Reigning National Road March Monarch Machel Montano yesterday drew more than 300 fans to the J&R Music Store at Manhattan, New York, where he was on hand to sign autographs for people who purchased copies of his 2007 CD collection The Book of Angels.

Before sitting down to meet his fans, Montano delivered a short yet highly-charged performance in the store that had the West Indians that had come to J&R specifically for the signing, jumping up Carnival style.

So powerful was Montano's presentation, patrons who were there on other business, some of them having never heard of Montano or soca music before, began to ask the store clerks who he was and also about his CD.

Montano will tonight create history when he becomes the first soca artiste ever to headline at Madison Square Garden, New York.

He is scheduled to deliver two concerts, the first at 8 p.m. and the other at midnight.........................."

The Machel Interview....

For those who missed the Machel interview with Wendy Williams of 107.5 WBLS yesterday, check this link to hear all the craziness that went down; I still can't believe he gave her his Chanel sunglasses!

Machel HD - Album Release Party



In conjunction with the band's management and promoter of the auspicious concert at Madison Square Garden, Antilia Events is the official host for Machel Montano's album release party on Sunday 25th March 2007. We will be celebrating the North American launch of the highly anticipated CD "Book of Angels", at the high-profile
40 / 40 club in New York City. We endeavor to generate 'buzz' for the new album, and provide a networking medium for band members, record label executives, press and specially invited guests. The aim for all parties involved - the band, the promoter and the venue - should be to benefit from general press coverage by traditional Caribbean media, and furthermore from the more recent huge US media interest in Machel Montano and his band Xtatik.

It is expected that many successful recording artists from the Caribbean will be in attendance. In addition to the direct invitations sent out by all parties involved, this event is tied to the concert as an official press event. It is exclusively branded as 'by invitation only', and one where fans would feel extremely privileged should they obtain access. The event will accommodate 200-250 VIP guests from 7pm - 1am, but there will be availability in the general area of the club on a first come first serve basis.

Strict dress code is in effect and it is highly advised that patrons arrive at the event at or before 6pm on Sunday if they wish to gain access.
