Spice Theme 2011

How long does a band have to be in existence to present a "Signature Collection"? And, what exactly is this theme about? Are they going to showcase their best costumes from the last TWO presentations? This simply does not make any sense, should have stuck with the Savage Amazon theme.

Oh well, I do hope they have costumes to show at Zen by  Sunday August 8th, rumour is the band leader is designing 7 sections and the dynamic duo is doing ZERO, not to mention I have been told no costume prototypes are done as yet!

Anyhow you take it I am definitely going to be at Spice's band launch, I cannot wait to see this one!

Baje International Band Launch

Where else will you find both TRIBE and Island People jumping up in the same band? Well, for Crop Over in Baje of course! Check out the band launch details below:.
