Trinidad and Tobago and the entertainment fraternity in the Caribbean will certainly miss Ken ‘Professor’ Philmore. The Ace Pannist, composer and arranger died on Sunday morning at 9:30am, having been hospitalized after a vehicular accident on Republic Day in Trinidad.

Ken Professor Philmore was a gem to Trinidad and Tobago

Philmore’s name is revered on the entertainment landscape in Trinidad and Tobago and his sudden passing at the age of 53 has certainly left a void that could never be filled. In a press statement, Trinidad and Tobago Minister of Communications, Stuart Young said, ” Through this music, he did this country proud wherever he played, bringing recognition not only to our country, but to our beloved national instrument, the steel pan. He showed us that through dedication and love for the art form, it was possible to become one of the best.”

On social media, entertainment professionals have been expressing their grief. Production house, MasterMind Productions posted, “Today we lost a true cultural icon. Rest in Peace Ken ‘Professor’ Philmore. Thank you for the music, the memories, and the magic.”

New York city Soca DJ, DJ Spice said this one certainly struck home, meanwhile female musical duo, Xavier Strings also expressed sadness, saying:

“We mourn….such a beautiful soul gone too soon…his smile lit a room. Never have we experienced a more humble, talented, buoyant spirit.”

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.
