Knowing Your Options For Carnival 2012

Ok so TRIBE, Bliss and YUMA are SOLD OUT now (Fantasy Carnival is being curiously silent on both their registration and sold out status). 

If you missed the chance to get into what seems to be the Holy Trinity of Carnival Bands (judging from responses on my Facebook Fanpage) have no fear there ARE alternatives especially if you are a new masquerader and have no other bands to compare your first Carnival experience with.

Normally I do not recommend bands to potential masqueraders since I have no personally played with them but judging from previous reviews from masqueraders who have the following bands would be my top picks IF I had to play any other band apart from the Holy Trinity :

 (I also urge you to do not take my word as the Gospel but do your homework and research ALL bands to see if they are right for you based on age, demographic and your own personal criteria)

Island People Mas - Apart from the positive reviews from Carnival 2011 and the fact that I have many friends who enjoy  playing with Island People the revamped Heroes costumes are awesome and they have registration discount specials on now. Not to mention you don't need a hook up to get in the band.

Oasis Carnival - Prices and product are the two main draws to this band. They have nice costumes at a reasonable price, easy access to online registration and if you are looking for a smaller band the numbers are right too.

Harts Carnival - Proven leader in the Carnival Industry, very beautifully made costumes, easy access to online registration the only caveat is the band is not all inclusive however you have the option of paying extra for a drinks cart.

D Krewe - Again I have friends who have had very positive experiences with D Krewe, I know they saved Afro Chic's Carnival in 2010 so they make the list for sure! 

Ronnie & Caro - Very strong masquerader loyalty who vouch for a great on the road experience. 

Other Bands that have launched and are offering online registration:

Explosion Carnival has launched but they have not announced registration procedures.

Other bands still to launch:
