D krewe, new band for 2008

It is confirmed that D Krewe, a former section of Trini Revellers which produced the section Royalty for Carnival 2007, will be parting ways with Trini Revellers and debuting a new band of their own for Carnival 2008. Many rumours had already hinted of this move by D Krewe and my sources have informed me that preparations have begun for the new band. Thus far the sections have already been named and designs are in the process.

No name has been given as yet as to what the new band will be called or what is the theme of their presentation; more information is to follow as it becomes available. Here is a bit of history of the persons behind the crew:

D'Krewe, has been a collaboration, headed by Richard & Madeline Abraham, producing sections of brilliant carnival costumes in Trinidad Carnival Bands for the last eight years. In 2003 we produced "Play Yourself" in Barbarossa's Carnival Band "Comme Ce Comme Sa" and in 2004, our section was "Phoenicians" in Barbarossa's "Mythtropolis".

In 2005, D'Krewe joined with Roland St. George, who has been producing King Costumes for 30 years. This amalgamation produced the enhanced section, Arenales, in Trini Revellers "Conquest of the Indies", which won the 2005 Large Band of the Year Award.
