Caesar's Army A.M Bushes J'ouvert and Pan Lime Info



So, I just got word  that Caesar's Army is going to be doing an "ambush" on traditional  J'ouvert. Instead of J'ouvert happening the wee hours of Carnival Monday Caesar's Army is bringing you a J'ouvert experience in the wee hours of Carnival Saturday morning. 

Sounds like an interesting concept but is it really still J'ouvert if it is taking place on Carnival Saturday instead of Monday?

 I guess with J'ouvert now happening in July and December you could very well A.M. Bush J'ouvert for Carnival too! And in a way it is sort of like having your cake and eating it too for those who do not do traditional J'ouvert because they either too tired from a fete or don't want it to cut into their Monday Mas.

Read up more about Caesar's Army's Pan Lime and A.M. Bush J'ouvert below and tell me what you think of their  idea of moving J'ouvert.



This year our Pan Lime's theme is called TRAINING DAY.. which takes the form of our usual pan lime package:

COST: $200 for early birds
Includes the main ingredients for a BESS Pan lime: 
  • Tshirt for the guys 
  • Ladies Tee/Vest for the gals
  • Drinks
  • Food
  • Riddim Sec
  • LEVEL VIBES
  • Lots more.... soon to be revealed

TRAINING DAY is actually the prelude to what we anticipate will be a REVOLUTIONARY Carnival for all. We at CAESAR'S ARMY tend to do things out the box and therefore have opted to create an 'Alternative J'ouvert Concept' called A.M.BUSH ... which is what we call our 'ambush on J'ouvert'. 

This concept is based on our anticipation for J'ouvert - we can't wait for J'ouvert morning, so why not have it on an earlier date? 

Why worry about feeling tired for Monday mas, bouncing up every other band that is now overpopulating the St. Clair/Woodbrook routes?  

We expect that all the Party Animals and J'ouvert lovers that can't get enough are gonna love this concept as well. Two days of J'ouvert? NICE! lol

The Monday Mas Divas that love to look fresh on the road and was never able to do both J'ouvert and Pretty Mas can also get their J'ouvert fix this year.

This concept will be held on Carnival Saturday morning - at a venue to be disclosed at a later date but within the traditional J'ouvert times [4am til 9/10am]

COST: $400 for early birds | $380 group rate for groups of 10 or more
Includes the main J'ouvert necessities:
  • J'ouvert pre-party
  • Drinks
  • Breakfast
  • TIGHT SECURITY (we cannot stress that enough)
  • J'ouvert wear (Tshirt for guys and Ladies Tee/Vest for the gals)
  • LOADS of paint
  • Souvenir mug etc..
  • Music Truck
  • Much more features to have an incredible J'ouvert experience

VULGAR FRACTION's COALITION an independent mas

On Tuesday January 25th I have been invited to the launch of "VULGAR FRACTION's COALITION an independent mas". The launch will take place at Alice Yard from 6PM to 9 PM with music by 3 Canal, Moyenne and Marva Newton.

I have been told that Vulgar Fraction does not compete for Band of the Year, they are a small band and the concept is to make your mask and come, very interesting concept! Some more about what the band is about below:

AN INDEPENDENT MAS PLAYER COULD BE YOU - COME &  PLAY.
What is required
1) Develop your concept
2) You design your mas.
3) You get support from artists that are playing and making their mas.
4) You make your mas.
5) You cover your face. (Some of us have been doing this for 18 years.)
6) You play your mas.

As in mas, there are persons who make it their politics to make and play there own mas. We will call these persons Independents.
Politics is private action for public change (Lloyd Best)
Making your own mas with community may be vulgar at a time of Incorporated mas.
Before we play will have a few meetings. Music is on the road left behind sounds from other bands. We will have a transport, a four wheel vehicle made by powered by us. A Peddling mas.

Brief.
Make a mas
Make a mask that covers the face.
White draw string pants Supplied by THE CLOTH
Scarf The marker for your identity a pleated scarf to be used as a (belt, collar, scarf, sash, headpiece.........). it can be hard as denim soft as chiffon textured as lace spotted as polka dots flowered striped suiting bright dark drill satin.
Suggested mask (Mesh and zipper at mouth for eating and drinking).
It should speak of your politics with your present Identity and how that identity moves you or hold you back from acting and living fully, A mas that reflects you presents successes and or struggles in living a fully PRESENT life.
