Late start to Foreday
A LATE START to the Foreday Morning Jam seems to have sapped the energy of the revellers.
Only five bands have left from the BIDC starting point, with band members just taking a leisurely stroll, even though the music trucks are pumping the latest Crop Over tunes.
Very few spectators lined the streets and they were joined by some of the revellers who opted to wait and join their bands on the route instead of going to the starting points.
1 Trini and a Bajan was the first band out, followed by Blue Devils, who were in full white and horns.
With some bands not moving off according to numbers, some members were left scrambling to catch up.
At 12:40 a.m. band No. 8 Fashion of Splendour was just leaving BIDC, chipping along to Hypasounds’ Sugar Rush.
They were followed by MVP Entertainment, the first band from the new Queens Park route. They moved off at 11:30 p.m. and were muddy, but happy to get down to Spring Garden. (NS)
