Already, the buzz surrounding the comeback of a tradition in Carnival, is high. Nothing stands strong enough to compare to the Re-Birth of the Caribbean Brass Festival. Bunji Garlin, his wife Fay-Ann Lyons, Shurwayne Winchester and even Blaxx, performed on the said stage, in the said arena where cultural icons of the past, such as SuperBlue, David Rudder, Christopher Tambu Herbert and Byron Lee and The Dragonaires, once sent crowds into utter frenzy. The artistes of the new generation of soca are eager to bite into the excitement, with many saying, this is indeed a privilege.

With just a couple days to go before the event on Carnival Saturday, organizers are in hype mode, and along with sponsors for the event, Monster Energy Drink, Bmobile, The NLCB, Pepsi, Blue Waters and Excellerate Energy Bar- they are guaranteeing patrons a truly memorable carnival experience. Visitors to T&T have been hearing about the event’s comeback via online websites and Facebook for weeks, and their minds are made up- Brass The ReBirth is where they’ll be on Saturday night. Even with Panorama finals high on the agenda for many, organizers are confident that patrons will come over to the Brass Festival in search of the real feting experience that’s the ultimate ingredient to the Greatest Show On Earth.

Tickets have been reasonably priced for patrons of all economic backgrounds to converge and celebrate the spirit of the season as one people. Local culture is high on the agenda as the Brass committee feels the need to strongly endorse the greatness of local soca artistes and those across the Caribbean who have stood firm for soca music. In recent weeks, strategic planning has been on the front burner, with the committee’s main goal being to offer a production of great musicianship, a spectacle of colour, a show of dynamic proportions and elements of surprise from beginning to end.

The Queen’s Park Oval being the final venue chosen to accommodate the massive crowd expected- is considered the perfect location- one that is centralized and easily accessible with little to no traffic restrictions to hinder departure and arrival of fete lovers. Unlike other events carded for Carnival Saturday, Brass- The Rebirth will cater to all revelers with specific attention paid to accessibility, cost and all round enjoyment.
