The 1st half of the Carnival
weekend was all about Machel Montano HD,
with a formal Press
Conference held at the Trinidad and Tobago's High Commission
on the Thursday evening before the big Rezzarek
Concert at the Hammersmith Apollo on the Friday. Now with
the concert wrapping up early (11pm), it was straight to the Official
After Party at SE One nightclub, where Machel and crew was
vibzing out. You should see the looooooong queue to get in!
Saturday was the day of All Inclusives, with Danclair
& Friends hosting "Trini
Luau" and PoisonUK catering for a more mature crowd
at their "Ultimate
All Inclusive Party" featuring David Rudder. It was
a early night for us on Saturday since everyone wanted to rest for
what turned out to be ah boss jump up on the Sunday (which is officially
Kiddies Carnival). Two words....
Mas"! Man, people had ah time and ah
half. It was like j'ouvert with chocolate instead of mud and in
de hot sun (yes, the cold weather take a back seat as forecasted).
After scrubbing behind de ears good, it was one time movements to
Collision". Busspepper, thanks for giving us jus what
