Cavalcade thrills thousands
AN ESTIMATED 5 000-strong crowd converged at Queen’s Park last night for the Super Cavalcade.
The lone community-based soca show for the season brought big names, a few one-hit wonders and emerging artistes to the crowd’s five-hour delight.
One of the biggest standouts was the renewed and rebranded Energy Band in which Ian IWeb Webster has joined leading vocalist Kirk Brown.
Gorg’s pain was Crop Over 2014’s gain. With forlorn face, he lamented his break-up…but still had his rum.
And the crowd loved it.
Peter Ram, Porgie and Murda, the Dutty Team of Verseewild and Marzville, as well as Hypasounds also added their own flair.
John King, Serenader and Grynner relived some of their greatest hits while young female soca singers Summa and Kayla Bee were the strongest of the new artists to hit the stage.
They, along with Scribbz, Fuhnominon and Kadeem were backed by the Lejend Band.
Soka Kartel ended the night on a high just before midnight with 2013’s Roll It, which ran seamlessly into a taste of this year’s soca blazer Turn Around. (LW)
