Bandleaders’ last straw

Social Share

CROP OVER could face some disruption in 2017 from disgruntled mas bandleaders.

The Barbados Association of Bandleaders (BAM) is tired of what it claims are broken promises by Government, and has informed the SUNDAY SUN that if several issues are not addressed, members will protest.

Their concerns are about the VAT of 17.5 per cent, the “inadequate” subvention given to the bands and prize money.

President of BAM, veteran bandleader Chetwin Stewart, is claiming that each year the same situations have not been rectified and the members of the association are at the end of their tether.
