People's Band To Parade Only On Carnival Monday

According to today's Express Newspapers more plans for the People's Band were revealed by NCC Chairman Kenny De Silva yesterday:
This was disclosed by Chairman of the National Carnival Commission (NCC), Kenny de Silva, yesterday.

"What we have gotten for the People's Band in Port of Spain is a level of interest from some of the large steelbands, such as the WITCO Desperadoes and Exodus. They want to play for the people," De Silva said.

The People's Band will play on Carnival Monday only, crossing the stage in Port of Spain, Chaguanas, Mayaro and San Fernando.

The public can expect to be informed of registration details through the media next week, said De Silva.

A cut-off date for registration will also be advertised next week.

"We will want to get an idea of the numbers as early as possible, because music and security and so on have to be planned according to the number of people in the bands," De Silva said.
Players in the People's Band will be free to wear their own costumes, as the concept of the band remains one of self-expression, one of the true meanings of Carnival.

"People can wear their micro-bikinis if that is what they want," De Silva said.

I wonder if someone from the NCC has been reading this blog, because several of my reservations upon hearing about the People's Band namely registration of masqueraders and security have been addressed. And people thought I was crazy for bringing those points up! Interesting developments. So, what do you think about the People's Band turning into effectively a post J'ouvert Monday ONLY mas?
