Evolution Review

Thanks to one of the ladies who reads the blog for this Evolution review, please, keep the reviews coming, I would like to hear everyone's thoughts on their Carnival exeperience regardless of the band you played with.



Hi,
I love your blogspot.

My friends and I played with IP for last 2 years, didn't go back for obvious reasons. Anyway, we decided to give Evo a shot. Saw the costumes, love at first sight.

Evo. had problems, obviously, ( they new & they sold costumes down to the wire):

1. Most popular section (Teal), costumes were not packed, head pieces ran out, but they delivered eventually.
2. Costumes for 1 section never arrived ( they put masqueraders in another section, some got refunds). Another section was distributed on Carnival Sunday (way too late). I think all the other sections were ok.
3. Problems with food distribution on the road.

BUT, but, on the upside:
1. Mas camp officials were extremely pleasant & welcoming (nobody ain't roll they damn eyes at me or suck they teeth, NO "nasty-tude"),
2. The road music was the BEST I've had in a while (long time I ain't wine so, the DJ and them well show off), we heard soca from everyone, old & new!
3. The music & drink trucks moved at a nice, reasonable pace (I didn't sprint like I was in a DAMN 100m dash with Maurice Greene),
4. We ended around 8:30 pm on both day, which was sufficient time for "jamming" on arbitrary street corners (No lies & excuses about "unexpected traffic & stuff").
5. They eye candy was good, the vibe was nice!

They may have bitten off more than they could chew, but they gave a whole hearted effort to ensure that we enjoyed Monday & Tuesday. I am sure Evo. will try to work out their kinks so that their next production will run more efficiently, after all some 3-year old bands have done worse ( ok that was my last pot shot, maybe I'm still bitter about last year)!

It was good stuff, we had a ball!
