I cannot tell you how many fetes sell male and female tickets and do not account for the different amenities that women need when utilizing restrooms. Man, this is NOT j'ouvert. These are fetes and most of them high-end fetes. In such fetes I am expecting the restroom area to be top notch as it was in Soca Brainwash.

Also the signage, the cups that served at souvenirs, and the venue were spectacular.

The fete started somewhat late but this is not a complaint and is just looked at as a trend of Soca Brainwash. The fete starts later than advertised and goes later than advertised.



The Miami Carnival "Soca Brainwash" Review

For me, Soca Brainwash was THE BADDEST fete of Miami.


Just so that you know, the first thing that I do in every fete that I attend and have to write about is go to the restroom/bathroom area. That's the first thing. Soca Brainwash passed my bathroom test, hands down.

The one thing that I enjoy watching is DJ Private Ryan walk around the crowd and tell people thank you for coming out. He talks to everyone, never acts like he's too busy, is gracious and addresses the crowd personally before he goes in the DJ booth and after. This is huge. And it's a personal touch that is recognized many in attendance.

To say that the music was superb is an understatement. Every DJ that graced the stage was great.

Ryan!! Send De Women
Dem Back!!!

I only have one complaint.

Uh.......... One of the hosts asked the women to come on the stage and dance and they stayed on the stage all night. FOR DAMN NEAR THE ENTIRE FETE. Or at least the whole time that DJ Private Ryan was playing.

It was nice.

It was a cool visual.

But........That pulls away from the population of available women to dance with in the in the fete. So, next time, after you've shot the promo video and/or taken the pictures, could you please kindly return the women back to the general fetting population. Thank you.

And I'm serious about that. DEAD SERIOUS. Some people had folks in their crew that went on stage and never came back.

The Best Part Of
Soca Brainwash

============


The best part of Soca Brainwash for me was watching my cousin Felicia Ferguson and my baby sister, Alexandra Jones, who were both celebrating their birthdays that weekend have the time of their lives. Alexandra told me, "This was the best birthday ever!" And my cousin Felicia said, "Rhadi, I want you to know I had such a great time and I'm so glad i have the great time with you." And that alone, made Soca Brainwash the best fete for me during carnival. Because THAT happened at Soca Brainwash. To see both of them enjoying themselves and having a great time was a surreal moment for me. There's nothing like fetting with your family.

And with that I would like to say, "DJ Private Ryan, thanks for spreading the love, one song at a time."

Soca Brainwash was the best new fete this year. For the first time in Miami, they did a great job. It's a mandatory fete for Miami. In my opinion.... and.... you can trust me.... I'mma doctor smile emoticon
