Band Launching Roundup

Masquerade held a media launch last month and to date the website is still under construction. Though I have seen photos of the costumes in several of the local newspapers I cannot find a gallery of other photos on any of the popular photo websites...hmm. Interestingly the costumes that I saw did look like a different mold from the usual Masquerader (dated) fare, and I was looking forward to seeing more. Alas, all I have is one photo that was sent to me by bacchanalmas:

On another note, while looking for Masquerade photos I found a gallery from Ivan Kalicharan's band launching on Ivan Kalicaharan's band is based in San Fernando and I have never seen a website for them so I was pretty glad that there is coverage of the costumes online. My cousin, who lives in San Fernando, is playing with this band. Playing mas in San Fernando is a totally different experience from Port of Spain, yes I have played mas "down south" and one day I will compare and contrast the differences.

Finally "Stampede" also had a bandlaunching recently and you can see photos at, I do not know what the theme is but you can check out the costumes and judge for yourself!

Oh and if anyone finds a gallery of Masquerade photos available online please, leave me a comment.
