J’Ouvert band goes down Fantasy Island
Scores of patrons flocked to Marabella recently to see what the Dev’s Barber Shop Crew had to offer for the upcoming Carnival season, as the group launched its J’Ouvert presentation entitled Fantasy Island. The event—The J’Ouvert Band With a Difference—was held at the Martinique’s Hang Out, Union Road, Marabella. In addition to the costumes, which took on a beach-like appearance complete with straw skirts, the launch featured the talents of a host of talented soca artistes.
The line-up included Bambi and the duo Chemistry, who kept the crowd entertained with their C2K11 tunes Wrong Prescription and Jam Meh, respectively. Klassy and Leanna also performed Boat Ride and Thickalicious. But the night firmly belonged to St Vincent Road March champ, Maddzart, who had patrons jumping to his The King Road.
Rounding off the performances was Naya George, who, in spite of his absence from the Carnival circuit for some time, still proved that he had what it took to hype a crowd. “We are going to stay true to our theme and really make a difference,” Dev’s Barbershop Crew leader Devon Harris said. “Real vibes, real energy and niceness are what our members will enjoy on the road with us.”
