Beyonce's "I Am" tour will be going to South America in Feburary 2010 and Trinidad and Tobago is the final stop on the itnerary with a concert scheduled for Trinidad at the Oval on Feburary 18th.

You may want to schedule this on your post Carnival Calender as a "cool down" event, seeing as the concert takes place the day after Ash Wednesday; perfect timing right?

So, how many of you will be canceling costumes or fete tickets to go VVIP at the Concert which is sponsored by Bmobile?

Say What?

So News reaching the sauce is that for Carnival 2011 a certain band will NOT be allowing pre registration, not even by private section leaders; the only way you can get a "hook up" to be in the band is through the band leader ONLY! This shift in a long standing policy was because of some bacchanal that took place, it is rumored, one can only guess what drama took place as the word is mum on that situation. But, I can tell you people are STILL getting the hook up even the though the band has been sold out since August!

Well I guess if rumours of the other band are true for 2011 then there will be more than one way to be in with the in crowd. No pre registration? Whatever will the ones who have never lined up to register OR even go online do?

Also, I was told that a certain band flouting registration figures of over 1000 masqueraders to date allegedly only have 500 or thereabouts registered. An improvement from 2009 if this is indeed true, but nothing close to the numbers they were hoping for.

As for the costume quality controversy involving this particular band, well the sauce was reliably informed that the VERY congenial vendor, used to produce costumes, has been showing many people what the samples look like! From reports front line masqueraders should not be worried, and the situation with the regular costumes has been "worked out by the band leader"; lets just hope this is true as well and the final product is just as great as the protoype.

Anyway, word is that the vendor in question was also being sourced by other bands but upon viewing the quality of work was not used, reason giving why this particular band went with said vendor, even though standards were not up to par, is simply because this was the only vendor willing to work within budget even though said vendor knew that the quality of costumes desired would not be attained using the bands budget per costume.

Again these are all ALLEGATIONS and I am reporting it as I get it!
