Tuesday Question time!

Yes, I know it should have been Monday question time, but yesterday was a holiday in both Trinidad and the United States so since lots of you were enjoying the day off on the beach or on the Parkway the questions have been pushed back to today!

You know the drill, leave your questions in the comment section for the band leader. Once again, please do not address the bandleader with BAND specific questions, for example "why does TRIBE or Island People do xyz". The bandleader will not be able to answer those questions.

Thanks!

Saucy I have a question for you....Did you know your blogg is listed under Carnival Information in the book A Travers Guide to Trinidad and Tobago - 2007 ed. Sure you do but just wanted to say congrats :)

What made you want to become a bandleader? Now that you lead a band, do you that the reasons that you continue to lead a band are the same as your original reasons? As a general matter, do you find being a bandleader to be more of a business or pleasure (i.e. love/furtherance of mas)? Do you have any advice for someone who might eventually want to become a band leader?

What are your feelings on the bikini & beads mas issue? Do you appreciate what mas has become, or do you long for the days of Peter Minshall and think bikini mas is not furthering the culture?

What was your first experience with carnival and what made you want to come back again and again?

Thank you!

Where do you see Mas heading in the near future? and do you think that the creative aspect of carnival has been lost to the bikini?

When a band offers options such as a corset of tankini for the more modest sisters, what techniques can be used with the design to make it look more apppealing?

How can one visualize if a bikini prototype would also look as good with a corset/tankini?

This question can be for you or the bandleader...as a new masquerader I wanted to know what exactly happened to the stage? Why was it removed and what are the chances of it ever returning?
