Well firstly, the Trini Jungle Juice family was greeted by showers of blessings.... but that didn't damper our spirits. Neither did it discourage the patrons in attendance at Presentation College & The Rotary Club Of Chaguanas annual All Inclusive titled "Soca Sensation" this year. Now I'll admit on behalf of the fam, we did arrive a bit late because of the weather (our apologies), but as soon as we entered the gates of the college, we were greeted with smiles and thanks for still coming out ... good vibes.
There were some traditional Carnival characters who also met us at the gate, like the Pierrot Grenade; cracking there whips one after the other, Baby Doll, Moko Jumbies, Fancy Indians and the fire breathers themselves; the Jab Jab.... just to name a few of the characters. Some people ran in disgust while others looked on in amazement. Now time to talk about my favorite thing ... other than women ... FOOD! And my goodness, it was in abundance! From bake & shark to fried wantons, any and everyone's appetite was satisfied. Furthermore, seeing that it was an All Inclusive, it was an all you can eat buffet. Thinking back about it now still makes my mouth water. The bars also did not disappoint. I would love to find out which patron came close to "bussin d bar" because the variety and abundance of drinks that were on display, not even a dent would've been noticed. Some patrons learned the hard way, but we'll get to that in just a bit. Onto the entertainment...
First to perform was the young group of JMC 3Veni. Seeing that this night was also the night of the Chutney Soca Monarch Finals, lead singer K.I took advantage of the opportunity to rally his fans, as well as, get in the groove for later that night. He did put on a great show indeed. Soca stars Shal Marshall and Super Jigga TC also made an appearance and blessed the stage with a solid performance. Now to fans, there was only one disappointment. Unfortunately, Soca group Imij and Co. were not able to attend because of their fete schedule on the night. But the promoters got another heavyweight artist to pass through and entertain the crowd. None other than Shurwayne Winchester and Y.O.U. And Mr. Iron man Winchester really performed for the crowd; from climbing onto a speaker, to actually going into the crowd and performing among them. He didn't come alone though. He brought Vincy 2010 Soca Monarch King Maddzart and Mr. "Blu Blu" himself; Screws. It was really a treat to fans to see them all perform under the night sky.
Stay tuned for TJJ TV coverage.
