Marlon Hill, attorney for Miami Carnival,  in a statement said, after 34 years, Miami Carnival is an institutional mainstay of Miami’s cultural tourism economy. “With the generations of persons of Caribbean descent from the region and other corners of America who have made Miami home, their music, culture, and artistic energy are helping to book out the availability of hotel rooms, special event venues, rent-a-cars, and shopping centers over the Columbus Day Weekend,” he said, adding, “This event transforms Miami into an economically vibrant culture wonderland”, states

Meanwhile, Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau Vice President, Multicultural Tourism & Development, Connie W. Kinnard, said they are excited to partner with Miami Carnival again.  He said each year the festival organizers enhance the planning and execution with bigger and better ways to showcase Caribbean Heritage from all over the world and particularly in the Miami metropolitan area. “It is our hope that the festival continues to grow in numbers and also becomes a staple itinerary event for potential tourists to consider when planning vacations, reunions, and conventions”, said Kinnard.

‘A Team’ Keeps The Fire Burning. They’re Gearing Up for A Whirlwind 2019.

Every entertainer wants to be a superstar but it’s pretty extraordinary to find a team of individual artistes and musicians whose sole aim is to ignite the hearts of the masses, treating each player in the Soca game with an equal amount of respect and not to mention, wishing them all great success. The A Team Band is that team.

Lead singer, Eddie Charles has been a part of the Caribbean’s entertainment fraternity for some time.

From the 90’s to today, Eddie’s style of stage delivery has been unique, making him stand a part from the rest, each time. He’s joined on stage in frontline position by sole female vocalist, Ms. Kerlz and the pretty talented, Abbyshi Jackson.

What’s unique about the A Team Band is their appreciation for all artistes and the varying sounds and styles they bring. We recently had a chat with them, and here’s how they responded to some of the questions asked.

Patrice Roberts is kicking all the haters to the curb. Well, that’s if she has any. Truth be told, everyone seems to be a huge fan of the ‘I Like It Hot’ singer who, in 2018, was present at almost every carnival fete, including Machel Montano’s Machel Monday. 

In 2019, we suspect Patsy’s gonna be a runaway horse, leading the pack with a level of confidence, many’ll just have to be in awe of. On Saturday night, in South Trinidad, the Toco native, threw all inhibitions out the door, donning a lengthy braided hair extension, complete with a body fitted ensemble that drew attention purely to her curves. 

Patrice’s body has been a topic of much debate over the years. She’s addressed public concerns as to whether she’s had work done, in the past, saying she hasn’t. In a 96.1WEFM interview in 2014, Roberts told Kim and Olatunji Yearwood that she’d simply been training very hard in the gym, getting her butt tightened as many had observed. Fast forward to 2018 and the mom of one is owning the attention, leaving tongues dragging and making even ladies, stare. 

Roberts has released a slew of soca tracks already, heading into Carnival 2019. We foresee an amazing season for the once-upon- a- time HD frontline vocalist who was mentored by the King of Soca himself, Machel Montano. She has teamed up with Sekon Sta on a single called, “My Side”. Beyond that, Patrice has given us several other great Carnival singles, all worthy of applause.
