Ballerz & Associates recently had their J’Ouvert Band Launch, 2 Dye 4 (It’s All About Peace & Love), at The Naparima Bowl Grounds in San Fernando. Patrons partied to the sounds of soca singer Patch, General Grant, Blackie, Ziggy Rankin and new soca artiste Buffy. DJs Joy Productions and Intellect Live kept the party going until the wee hours of Sunday morning.
One of the bandleaders, Sherona Grace, said there was a mixture of both the young and the mature that night and it went extremely well. There were several give-aways, including a costume which was won by Beverly Williams of Plaisance Park. The costume consisted of a tie-dyed shirt in vivid pink, green, yellow, orange, blue and purple, along with matching socks and bandana and white pants in the patron’s choice of length.
Grace added, “If you see the costume you will go crazy and want to play in the band. My mother Susan Goolie, created the costumes based the concept on the hippy times, when it was all about peace and love.” Anyone interested in purchasing a costume can visit their mas camp at 25 Pond Street, Vistabella. The cost of a costume is $400 all-inclusive.
