Organizers of the International Soca Monarch competition are yet to release an official statement on the matter of who will take over Fay Ann Lyons Alvarez’s post, following news that she has officially bowed out of her last year’s position.

The former Road March, Power and Groovy Soca Monarch King has received tremendous kudos for her input in the competition last year, this as fans and even critics took to social media overnight, and throughout the day today, to relay their disdain over the news. Many agree that Lyons-Alvarez had done a great job at revamping and reinvigorating the Soca Monarch competition. Today, Lyons Alvarez confirmed her position, noting that time constraints had essentially led to the move.

President of the Promoters Association of Trinidad and a Tobago, Randy Glasgow.



Prominent event Promoter Randy Glasgow and his team at Randy Glasgow Productions are confident that before long, good sense will prevail and Lyons Alvarez will be reinstated by the Caribbean Prestige Foundation. “We want to lend support to Fay Ann in this situation. We are asking the Soca Monarch committee to please do their best to retain Fay Ann and her team to produce the 2020 Soca Monarch competition,” he said.

Glasgow, in an interview with Ebuzztt this afternoon, said Fay Ann was able to gather the national community and encouraged them to buy back into the Soca Monarch concept last year, adding that she single handedly showed the business community how the event should be run.

Glasgow who will produce Soka With Her in Carnival 2020, highlighted that Fay Ann and her husband, Bunji Garlin are a duo who loves their job, saying this is evident when they travel. “We’ve all seen it. They promoted the Soca Monarch even outside of T&T last year. They talked to the artistes and promoted the event,” he said.

Randy ended by saying in Trinidad and Tobago’s Carnival landscape there is always some ‘bacchanal’, adding that he believes sooner or later, good sense will prevail.

What started off as a concert ended as a FETE! Ebuzztt was most present at Tuesday on the Rocks’ debut on the Savannah grass on Tuesday night. The event, which has grown significantly over the years, drew a massive crowd ranging from the young to the young at heart, all there to celebrate the musical catalog of Kes the Band.

As we begin our review, we note that entering the venue seemed less strenuous than previous years as the design was more accommodating – specifically to parking and layout of food and bar. Before the event officially kicked off, patrons were entertained by the likes of Sheldon Blackman and others on a mini stage while patrons enjoyed their favourite oriental, arabian or creole finger food located near a designated eating area.

Vale Vibe Cooler Dishes Out A Fete, Not A Concert.

For yet another spectacular year, well known DJ, Alicia D Duchess and her team of event coordinators provided patrons with nothing short of a true Carnival fete experience. EBUZZTT was on hand this past Tuesday night to enjoy the epic vibes, as we did last year and even the year before that. In fact, this is one cooler experience we try not to miss because it’s one of the very few authentic carnival treats!

The thing about Vale Vibe Cooler that makes it truly pop out for us is its simple, yet effective feting dynamic. This is an event that makes the most of a venue that’s not the biggest. The event takes place annually at Bayview in Maracas, along the North Coast road. Parking for patrons is roadside and security by police officers along the roadway, is never to be questioned.

Flag wavers, shorts and t shirts and great music makes Vale Vibe Cooler a necessary fete for Ebuzztt.

On the inside, the ambience is beautifully, natural- no unnecessary ad ons- just effective, efficient infrastructure and non stop feting. Patrons attending Vale Vibe Cooler are mostly foreigners who come in for the carnival experience, many of them amped to maximise on their few days in T&T. A nice mixture of mature and young fetters delivers to this fete, a keen, much needed freedom that’s expressed in smiles, airborne hands, voracious singing to every soca track played and not to mention the oldies that are goodies that every international carnival lover basks in. This is never an ordinary fete- this is a fete for true carnival revellers, the ones that are sometimes forgotten.

On Tuesday night, Voice, the prolific three time Soca monarch Champ came through with the music. He impressed thoroughly, even engaging a young patron who’d flown in from Boston. She mounted the stage as the entertainer came on, ready to back back her derriere on him, and that she did.
