Ready Up Tobago! 2019 Is Your Epic Carnival Year! Here’s Why….

Published

As public outcry intensifies for Trinidad and Tobago’s government to diversify the economy and place a bit more emphasis on Tourism, and brand Tobago, one promoter is doing his part to ensure the world knows that Tobago is an amazing destination, worth visiting. “It’s time we wake up. It’s time we put in the work and that means all of us must do our part,” says Randy Glasgow; this as he explains he’s been meeting with officials of the Port Authority of Trinidad and Tobago, the Tobago House of Assembly and tourism officials across the islands to ensure that Tobago experiences the biggest and most successful Carnival themed festival event, in 2019. The Tobago Loves Soca weekend will be epic, by all accounts, explains Glasgow, and he’s got an A Class DJ cast to prove it.

Red 967FM radio personality, Chinee, has been booked for the event.

Already, the excitement surrounding Glasgow’s premium weekend- long event on the sister isle, is building. Big names on the entertainment circuit like Scorch’s Hypa Hoppa, Chinatown’s Chinee, DJ Ana, Kevon Xof Miami Events TT, Lord Hype, Ultra Simmo, Tweez, Lurbz, DJ Charlotte, Major Penny, Mighty Crush out of Tobago, KaoticInternational and Barbados’ Red Bull 3 Style champ, Deejay Puffy, among others, have been secured for the thrill-seekers weekend. Set for the Valentine’s Day weekend next year, (February 14th-February 17th), Tobago Loves Soca will feature four major events. On Thursday night, visitors will experience the Welcome Party and that will be followed by Soca Spree- a traditional Tobago event that’s promoted by BWV Entertainment. On Saturday February 16th, patrons will be enticed by the white-themed, Dusk In White fete, which will precede Wet N’ Wild on the Sunday.

DaJ Charlotte will also be a featured DJ at TLS weekend!

Glasgow, known for orchestrating major carnival events in Trinidad, says he felt the need to shift his focus a little, giving to Tobago, a product that could essentially work in marketing the island to prospective destination seekers. “Everyone knows Trinidad is the main focus of Carnival, however it’s important for us as promoters to also showcase Tobago’s beauty, its versatility and its charm. We’ve chosen the Canoe Bay Beach resort to host the festival and we’re in talks with major airlines like British Airways, Virgin America Airlines, LIAT and American Airlines, to incorporate the TLS weekend in their marketing and promotional efforts for destination seekers who yearn for a small taste of the Carnival experience, but generally prefer a relaxing vacation getaway,” said Glasgow.

Barbados’ finest, Deejay Puffy will be there.

A Soca star-studded lineup already secured, and celebrity hosts set to be announced soon, Randy Glasgow says all systems are in place to ensure that patrons of the TLS weekend want for nothing when they touch down in Tobago. “Additional flights and sea bridge sailings will be put in place to meet any demands,” he assures. In the same breath he is urging fete lovers both overseas, and domestic, to book their flights or sailings and secure their accommodation packages early. “Everyone’s going to want to be a part of this weekend experience in Tobago. Nothing will compare,” said Glasgow.

Tickets for the TLS Weekend are available at Penny Savers Supermarkets in Tobago and at all NLCB Lotto Booths Nationwide. Package bookings are also available online at www.tlsweekend.com  with a 24 hour hotline u and running as well, at : 868 774 5555.

Ricardo Drue Makes Statement at Soka In Moka

Published

No, this has nothing to do with the fact that he and his daughter’s mother were seemingly coupled up backstage at Soka In Moka…. (wink,wink), but it does however have a lot to do with the fact that Drue maintains a high standard of performance delivery on stage in Carnival 2019! The “I Got You” singer, delivered seamlessly at the carnival staple event on Sunday night, proving he’s certainly got what it takes.

Ricardo’s been a part of the All Starz frontline lineup for quite some time. He’s definitely earned his place in the game. On stage at Soka in Moka, the young artiste presented a refreshing and exhilarating set that included his hit singles, “Professional” “Bet” and “Vagabond.” He was well received by the crowd of primarily mature fete lovers who couldn’t help themselves when the young charmer pulled out the stops and delved into some old school refrains.

Drue’s physical presence on stage is always one to admire as well. Perfectly suited in a khaki coloured suit on Sunday night, he worked the stage, and with little to no talk in between songs, Ricardo simple ACED it!

Take a look at what we managed to capture of the young performer at Soka in Moka 2019.

Machel, Ashanti Team Up on New Soca Track.

Published

Team work makes the dream work. Nobody in the Soca industry has had more collaborations with other artistes, like Machel Montano has. From Walker Hornung to Wyclef Jean, Shaggy, Charly Black, Buju Banton, Beenie Man, French Montana and now RnB songbird, Ashanti, Machel knows the worth of team work.

Ashanti has teamed up with Machel Montano

The Monk’s in full carnival mode these days and he’s got the music to prove it. A recent count on the number of releases he’s managed thus far, exeeeded 10! Makes us all wonder where other artistes would fit in really, but this certainly isn’t unusual. Machel Montano has always worked hard to prove his worth as an industry leader. Behind the scenes, business moves such as this one with Ashanti, certainly prove his strategy-making prowess. He should never be discounted when it comes to that! With another Machel Monday around the corner, collaborations like this one with the “Rain On Me” singer, prove effective in marketing his event. Now, there’s hardly a doubt that Ashanti’ll be on stage with Machel at the highly anticipated carnival concert event.

Last year, a single track done with French Montana essentially sealed the inclusion of the HipHop act on the MM cast. So far, Machel’s other major collaboration this season has been done with fellow soca heavyweights, Bunji Garlin and Skinny Fabulous. That track, “Famalay” is quickly become the Road March anthem of choice by fetters.

The new single done with Ashanti is called “De Road” and was produced by Precision Productions.
