Blue Flame the Aftermath....

Blue Range's Blue Flame fete took place last night along with Bishops All Inclusive and Temperature The Concert, yet despite three big fetes taking place Blue Range tennis courts was PACKED... I think they need a bigger venue for 2010! If you have ever been to Blue Range before you know that it is not a "fancy" all-inclusive and is priced accordingly. I paid 295.00TT for my ticket (limited special reserve ladies only) since I put in my booking very early and thought overall the fete was worth that! The main issue I have with Blue Range is the no parking situation, you have to arrive early to find a park on the STREET!



I know there was a shuttle service in place and LOTS of security so your vehicle was relatively safe, but having to arrive early just to find a good parking spot can be an issue for those who like to make a late entrance. The food options were not as impressive as one of the bigger all-inclusives but I have never been to a Blue Range fete where the menu was much different. There was jerk chicken/pork with fries, shark'n'bake, roti, gyros, corn soup and haggen daz. If there was anything else on offer I missed it, the bar was good from Johnny Walker to Baileys to Malibu and even a cocktail station making margaritas .

The performances were also good, notice I did not say great as their time on stage was limited. Iwer opened the show and I swear whatever this man sings he mashes up the place!! The great thing about Blue Range is that you could be upfront close to the stage and not feel as if a mob was ready to trample you! So, I was able to take in all the performances and even got soaked with water from Iwer!



Bunji and Faye Ann were next with a super short performance, Faye Ann did take to the stage to give a sample of her Road March contender "Meet Superblue" . I admire her dexterity on stage, she was even jumping up during her performance.





Then we had Patrice who performed over a track which killed her performance for me, as even though she was singing live it appeared that she was lip syncing.



The man of the moment however was Machel Montano (without his band). He joined Patrice on stage and then stole the show of course, I think everyone was waiting to see Machel last night as he was given prominent billing on the advertisement for Blue Flame.






As I said before Blue Flame overall was a GOOD fete and worth the price I paid; it was a sampling of a little bit of everything and was truly well supported with a huge crowd turnout. No Moet et Chandon, no horse meat and no huge price tag... I was quite pleased with the "cheap fete"!
