If Choosing A Carnival Band Was Like Buying a CD....

This whole topic came about from a question asked to me about a particular band, someone asked if I was  "converted" now and then went on to liken said band to a Genre of Music. Finding the whole thing hilarious I asked that person how would they categorize other popular bands and from there asked friends  their opinion until we combined a list of sorts. If we were to choose a band based on musical taste, what type of music would each band be?

I don't know if this list is an accurate representation of the bands for everyone, especially their masqueraders, but keep in mind it was all done in FUN. Who knows, it may be helpful to those looking to play in a certain band and have no idea what demographic that band attracts. 

So, what do you think? Agree of disagree with the Musical Genres ascribed to the Carnival Bands? And if a band is not listed add it in, leave a comment!

Bliss Apache Close Up Photos

My interview with Brian Mc Farlane took me to Rosalino Street yesterday and as I was in the area I decided to pop in and see the new Bliss Apache costume as I was out of commission (ill) when it was put up at the mas camp and I did not have the opportunity to see it in person before.

After seeing it I do like the colours, I think it is pretty and will look very nice on the road, initial photos did not do the costume justice.  No male was on show for which I was disappointed, I would have liked to have seen the male option. There is no frontline, only a larger headpiece option,I think a war bonnet headpiece sweeping to the floor would have been gorgeous as a frontline!

To my surprise there were people registering  at the camp(check out the audio on the video) and others looking at costumes. Here are the prices for Apache:
