On De Scene : NG Soca Stage Launch June 13th 2009!

>> Wednesday, June 10, 2009

This is the event most Soca enthusiast in St.Lucia has long anticipated the Launch of NG Soca Stage and here is the press release on de event :

The island’s lone all soca tent is getting set to put on their biggest
launch ever! Dubbed “the ultimate soca experience”, it is slated to take place
on Saturday june 13th at Saamans park a promises to be a soca spectacle not to
be missed. When asked why the move to Samans park as opposed to the traditional
national cultural centre, director and executive producer of the tent Kayode
Francois responded by saying that “whilst the NCC (National Cultural Centre) has
served us well in the past we want to expand our horizons in many ways that the
NCC does not allow, from the capacity of the venue, to the limited
infrastructure in terms of lights, sound and even pyrotechnics. We believe that
Samaans is a more conducive venue for our type of show and will allow us to put
in the infrastructure required to take our show to the next level. It can also
accommodate more patrons comfortably and even allow for an elevated VIP section”
he added.
This year’s launch is slated to showcase not only the soca of this
year, but also the biggest hits that have come out of the island from 2005, the
year when our soca music took a turn for the better. Hits such as ‘Water’,
‘Catch a Fire’, ‘My Pen’, ‘May I’, ‘Bounce’ and many more. “We want to feature
some of the biggest hits from then til now” said the producer of the show, and
as such the show will feature several guest performers such as, Ricky T, Alpha,
Derek Yarde, Marie-anne, The Viking, Marlon of Wezon, TC, and several others
alongside the star studded NG line up which includes, Ilah Man, Kakal, Platinum
George, Nicole David, Superman, Qpid, Teddyson John, Mantius, Private 6, Kerian
Piper, Blaze and many more. The show will also feature several new comers to the
stage, the likes of Zionomi and Emran Henry for the first time, Perry B, Baby
Blue, Arthur from the Matrix Band , cookiesncream amongst others.
This year
the back-up band shall be the ever popular T.E.M band and shall include brass
for the opening. The producers of the show say that this show has been long in
the making, and was conceptualized over a year ago. “When it is all put together
in terms of the artiste line-up, venue, and everything else, it really promises
to be a spectacular event that no one should miss, reveler or not” commented
The tent would like to say a special thank you to the patrons who
have attended the shows and supported over the years, and as such are offering
an early bird special on tickets of $25 until Wednesday 10th June.
