  1. aa!! Lock-Up VAN!!!! bondaye....allyuh trouble makers look out!!!

  2. Xcuse my language Nyree but I think the prices are f***ery and insane! Why the hell they giving the masqueraders prices like it's Black Friday shopping "Get 50% discount before 12"???? This is the first time I've ever heard a carnival band did this in Lucia.

    However if I were to jump in this band I'd make sure I pay them prices b4 June 1st!!! Thanks for the valuable info, it seems like they're snails when updating their site!

    So I guess either the Spectacular or Breathtaking is the 1 from Ronnie and Caro right?? And LOL @ the Lock up van. What's in store next year, wee wee toilets and powder room? Peoples, leave that s*** for TnT.

    Thank you very much.

    Love Nicky

  3. And btw, if I was a wishful masquerader I'd refuse to adhere to these, and I think others should do the same so they can see what they're doing is madness. Lose some profit, don't buy anything after June 1 you know? (LOL am soo horrible!)Nevermind the 2nd paragraph on my previous post. But alas,

    1)It's your choice
    2)You have other varieties
    3)People would do anything to be in the "IT" bands in St. Lucia and would love to feel like 'the shit' on the road.

    I hope that Mosiac band have pretty costumes. Did you get a chance to see any of them or @ least the sketchings Nyree?
