VETERAN BANDLEADER Betty West chalked up her fifth Large Band Of The Year title in her 24-year career for Positive Vibes at the Republic Bank Grand Kadooment yesterday.
She beat Laura Galt’s Lucky Horseshoe Jump Promotions Wet Ya Whistle into second, while Krave The Band’s Wild Wild West by Avery Hackett placed third.
West also won six other first places in her haul of nine prizes.
So positive was she that the judges would find favour with her vibes that she called the DAILY NATION last night to confirm what she already knew in her gut.
The elated West said she was “like a little child” with excitement.
