So, remember earlier this week I told you about Oasis Carnival,allegedly Elements re-branded for 2011? Well, here are the answers to your most burning questions from "Oasis" via their Facebok Group which has only just been created: 

Hey all new members..... here are some Questions and Answers about Oasis Carnival that you may like to know about.

What is Oasis?
Is an organization formed in 2010, with the sole purpose of providing an Intimate Premium all inclusive experience to revellers to enjoy our Trinidad & Tobago Carnival. An Oasis is defined as "as area within a desert where the water table reaches the surface with enough moisture to permit the growth of vegetation plants and flowers".

Who is the Band Leader?
Jody Ann Herde
Through we consider ourselves one complete unit, all in unison to make every decision, leaders have a tendency to emerge in groups and to US Jody is our leader, the one who holds things together and keeps us all in check.

Who are we targeting?
The main audience targeted for the band would be the lavish, trendy, fashionably conscious audience of Trinidad and Tobago between the ages of 21 - 45 years of age.
The volume of masquaraders which we have forecasted is between 700 - 1500 persons.

What is the Aim of the Band?

What is our price range?
For us we know price is the determining factor for all, in these economic times we know the importance of reasonably priced costumes along with an amazing experience. Obviously we cannot give the exact prices of each of our costumes but what we can say is that we want our price to be less than the average price of a costumes.

Is the band an All Inclusive Band?
YES....... Premium bars and fantastic foods. We want the road experience to be hassle free...... leave that wallet and bank card at home and let us take of the rest.

Our primary DJ is Shawn Christian the house dj for Woodford, 51 Degrees and Catalyst. Shawn will be our leason for deterniming our sound engineers on the road.

Where is the Band House Located?
Our Band House will be located in Woodbrook, which we feel is a primary location and has the reputation of being the Carnival Band hub area.

Security on the road?
The safety of our masqueraders is another major priority. We will like masqueraders to feel safe on the road, we have already hired an experienced group of security officers who have been involved in carnival for a number of years, and who also will be providing a large security team to ensure each individual feels safe on the road.

Judging Points?
We are an on the go band. Though we would love to pass all the judging points in Port of Spain standing for hours in one place is not an option. The party must never stand still.
