ISLANDpeople Mas..... The fun has just begun!



Hot off the Press...

So, information reaching The Sauce is that a certain Carnival band is coming under some heavy pressure from "investors" for shoddy production of costumes "overseas".

I was told that the final product of the costume looks like a cheap version of the prototype with substandard materials used,yet someone in charge approved the work! This did not go down well with one of the investors who was not happy with the quality or the fact that their money was jumping up for a second year. I hope that the leaders of this band know that masqueraders would be expecting every bead and crystal that was advertised at their band launch and on their flashy website!

In other news 2010 is rumoured to be the last year that two ladies of mas will be involved in  producing sections for their very popular Carnival band. I have been reliably informed that for Carnival 2011 these ladies will be retiring to focus on other things. 2011 is  also allegedly the year that another new band is set to take over the scene, delayed by two years will it really come to fore as an alternative for the masses clamoring to be IN with the IN crowd? Only time will tell!

Mas Jumbies - Echo du Village

Here is the first section to be revealed from Mas Jumbies 2010 Jouvert Band presentation L'Echo:

Echo Du Village


Echo du Village is priced at TT$350.00 all inclusive. Registration begins in 2 weeks for Loyalty Masqueraders only. MAS Jumbies Road DJ will again be www.spindmusic.com

Echo du Village draws its inspiration from the Juve Masque that once populated the rural and surbubs of POS. Masqueraders will have the option of white paint. The all inclusive package includes security, alcoholic & non-alcoholic bar, breakfast (ham & hops; salt fish & bake) and Irish Coffee as a starter.
Loyalty Masqueraders will continue to receive their Discount and may also register friends using the same discount (one time usage).

L'Echo is comprised of 6 sections.

D Harvard Revellers

Not to be confused with D Harvard Boys, D Harvard Revellers is all about "Dazzle" for their debut 2010 Carnival presentation.

D Harvard Revellers used to be a section called , you guessed it, D Harvard Section in Trini Revellers for the past 10 years however  they have branched off into a fulll fledged all-inclusive band with six sections, three of which are shown below:






If you are keeping count that makes it  SIX new bands stepping into the game for Carnival 2010, though I can still find no information on Scorpion Mas! I guess the exit of Evolution and Elements left the door wide open to the "newbies", as always I wish them all luck.
