SLU Carnival 2011: Just 4 Fun vs RED

Now that the two biggest St.Lucian bands have launched this past weekend, it's interesting to hear friends debate on which band to jump with. Fortunately, I have jumped with both bands, and I like both for different reasons. ... And I would even suggest jumping in both, if one could afford it!

Just 4 Fun as its name states is clearly about 'fun' on the road. The average age of a J4F reveler is probably 30 something which makes for a totally different band and road experience. Best explained by "there's really no point to prove," unlike Red whose revelers are younger. Best explained by "the now getting into their early 20s set." 

Red is known for its sexy costumes which appeal to a younger crowd, particularly girls who can wear the usually sexy Red costumes. ... And it's no secret where the girls are, the boys follow. Red certainly offers a costume similar to Trinidad, not in quality, but for the cost, it is reasonable by scale. 

J4F costumes have been almost repetitious from color to design, from past years. This year though the general consensus has been that J4F has stepped up its game. Most evident in the choice of color combinations, levels of skimpiness, the various sized headpieces and bikini bra styles. J4F has given revelers many factors to consider. "Do I want a big headpiece or a small one?" "Do I want a thin or thick waistband?" "Do I want my costume to give me ching a ling sound on the road?" Yet, I am happy that despite the amped up J4F 2011 costumes, the costumes are still typical J4F. They are not attempting to be like Red.

... And in past years, RED definitely had the sexier costumes. This year though, instead of seeing RED, I see SEXY FUN!
