Could _____________ Take The Road March!? Saw It Coming?

Patrice Roberts looked incredible at Army Fete 2018.

The weekend’s now winding down and two fetes between Friday night and Sunday morning may have very well proven just how much support the ground in particular, is giving to a man the world has come to know as THE BOSS. Iwer George may very well be the man to take the Road March title in 2018. His words, spoken at the very beginning of the carnival season, just prior to him unleashing ‘Savannah’, have easily cemented his ambitions in a way that no other artiste’s music has, thus far. They really say, there’s power in the spoken word.

On Friday night, while cheerful fetters enjoyed the vibe at Army Fete- certainly still the biggest and most enjoyable carnival fete, bar none, in Trinidad and Tobago’s carnival, the Boss, Neil Iwer George, was backstage, preparing to unleash his venom. And that he did. Performances by a cast that included the likes of Shal Marshall, Blaxx, Ricardo Drue and the All Stars, The Ultimate Rejects, Bunji and Fay Ann and even Machel Montano, would do nothing to shake the crowd like Iwer George did at Army Fete. While Road March contender, Patrice Roberts’ effort to do damage to the savannah with her melodious, ‘Sweet For Days’ was heartfelt and ambitious, climbing atop Kevin Da Costa’s (Johnny Bravo’s) back and making her way to the front of the massive crowd, was simply not enough. Her effort was simply that- an effort, as while many looked on from the displays that showed her performance, not many had gotten enough of a vibe and energy to propel them to the front where her antics unfolded. Later, Iwer would show Roberts and every other artist at the venue, just how it’s done.

The Army Fete experience remains powerful. The vibe is electric and with a sense of gritty familiarity, this fete, deemed the last of the hardcore carnival fetes, is and will hopefully be, a staple for many years to come. Iwer George’s name will certainly be among the greats to have shattered the silence at Army. In 2018, George certainly brought everyone to their feet. From front to back, flags waved and the people powerfully proclaimed their 2018 king. “George Fuh de road,” they chanted and with the big flag crews- Two Face, Powder Posse, G6 Empire and all the others, waving vibrantly, there was no denying that Iwer was their choice for the road.

It didn’t stop at Army Fete though.

Bunji, Fay Ann Stay Winning. Mas Maker, Promo Outfit…Who’s Counting The Coins?

Fay Ann’s business exploits now include mas making. She recently revealed a collaboration with Canadian mas bands SEMBA and Atlantic Mas.

While the rest of us are out here looking for the next party to attend, Fay Ann Lyons and her hubby of 12 years, Bunji Garlin stay winning, raking in the cash and hustling to the bank, no doubt. The duo is set to deliver another epic J’ouvert themed experience on June 3rd in St. Jospeh, Trinidad, and by all accounts relayed to Ebuzztt by Garlin himself, this one’s gonna be off the chain.

In 2017, Bunji and Fay Ann delivered ‘Santimanitay’ for the very first time at Ortinola Estate- a lush, ambient venue, deep in the St. Jospeh valley. It was the perfect venue for a J’ouvert style fete that featured the likes of fire breathing blue devils, painted bodies and not to mention, performances from Slaughter, Blaxx, Fay Ann, Super Blue and of course, Bunji himself. The event was indeed an epic and memorable one, leaving many excited for what was in the pipeline for the year ahead. During carnival 2018, the Alvarez’s once again delivered ‘Santimanitay’ on J’ouvert morning, taking patrons away from the traditional street venues in Port-of-Spain and into the cosy, meadow-like atmosphere they’d introduced us to, a few months prior.

“We’ll have a nice line up of artistes this time again, including myself, Fay Ann, Preedy Ms. Alysha, Revelation and a new artiste called, Jubee, along with a lot of other surprises,” Garlin told EBUZZTT. He said tickets have been going pretty well with just a limited amount still available from committee members. The event starts at 3am on June 3rd and will end at around 9am. “It’s a breakfast inclusive, cooler J’ouvert fete, but we want to let patrons know that coolers must not have any glass bottles inside and they must be in before 5am,” said Garlin.

To purchase tickets, interested patrons can call : 687-6996/ 733-2130/ 719-2284.

We suspect ‘Santimanitay 2018’ will be epically enjoyable. Question is, where will you be?

Soca Producer to Machel, Bunji, Nadia Re-Enters Performance Arena.

Published

There’s nothing in the entertainment rulebook that says a music producer cannot be an artist. You’ve heard the name Juelio Nelson, haven’t you? The young, Moruga Trinidad native is one of Trinidad and Tobago’s fastest rising music producers, having worked with Machel Montano, Bunji Garlin, Superblue for whom he produced the hit single, Fantatsic Friday,’ as well as other top shelf artistes like, Nadia Batson, Blaxx, JW & Blaze, Olatunji and most recently, Buffy. He’s no joke. Juelio is however much more than meets the eye.

Sharp vocal ability to say the least, accompanied by the love and encouragement of many of the artistes that he’s worked with, Juelio is hitting the ground hard, unleashing a new single that sits properly beside that of Buffy on a riddim he created called the Republic Riddim. “Before I got into music production, I was a vocalist,” he explained, noting that as a young man growing up in Trinidad and Tobago’s entertainment arena, he had competed in a number of competitions, among them 12 and Under and even the Junior Soca Monarch. He admits to having been sidetracked a bit when he got into music production though, taking on that career path wholeheartedly. “A lot of artistes kept telling me it was time to get back into singing. Nadia Batson was a huge inspiration for my return,” he said, explaining that Buffy too, pushed him to deliver a track on the new riddim.

The new single is called “Stuck on You” and was written by Juelio, making it clear that he’s pretty much an all rounder in the business of entertainment. “I think it’s really important for me to come out of my comfort zone- get back into the music and deliver music that will speak for itself,” said Juelio. With plans to release another single in the coming weeks, the music producer who is now working arduously on being an
artiste the world will enjoy, is pushing full speed ahead, fearless, optimistic about the future. “ I know I have what it takes. I just need to show the world,” he said.

Supporters of the art form are encouraged to check out the efforts of this amazing Caribbean talent on Instagram @ juelio_artiste_producer.
