The countdown is officially on to the Road March, this as the Greatest Show On Earth, Trinidad and Tobago’s carnival street parade, draws closer. Army Fete now gone, hard hitters of the feting scene are analyzing things, weighing the Road contenders and the crowd response each would have incited.

The Army Fete experience on Friday night at the Queen’s Park Savannah, saw thousands gather to see the biggest soca stars hit the stage, chief among them, the King of Soca, Machel Montano and his full band, the Asylum Vikings and of course, MX Prime and the Ultimate Rejects. There was really hardly any disappointment on show night and as usual, the big flags came out in all their glory, anticipating the moment their stage Gods would call upon them to bring the crowd to their feet with the big flag wave that’s part and parcel of the REAL Carnival vibe. Fay Ann Lyons, Bunji Garlin and the Asylum Vikings- the first band to strike up on Friday night following performances by Orlando Octave, Shal Marshal and others, were pretty good, but the crowd still settling in, stood looking on, watching as the husband and wife team worked the stage, delivering hit after hit without failure. Devon Matthews was introduced and his energy transcended into the crowd like nothing else could. Ella Andall’s absence from the performance took nothing away and like a choir, the massive Army crowd, sang along. It was amazing to say the least.

Fay Ann Lyons once again took the opportunity to prove that she’s no push over. On Friday night, with what seemed like an agenda to bring back the true carnival revelry of years gone by, the woman many once referred to as the Silver Surfer, commanded the big flag crews to move, and they listened. Her Road March contender, ‘Hold Something’ was forceful and enjoyed by sweaty, happy fetters. In less than 3 minutes, Super Blue’s daughter had created a scene at the Savannah.
