With the theme seeking to draw attention to the fanfare surrounding Barbados' 50th anniversary of independence, the bands organising committee took a decision to pay tribute to several of the island's cultural icons. Revellers this year have the option to jump in Mudda Sally, Landship, Shaggy Bear and Steel Donkey – sections all inspired by local cultural and folklore figures and institutions.
Seeking to deliver yet another unforgettable experience on the road for the July 30th event, Damage Kontrol, which has been gaining serious momentum since getting off the ground in 2013, will be providing patrons with the traditional packages, but have some added extras such as roundtrip transportation between the band house and the jump locations and live performances on the road.
Janelle Forde-Greenidge Assistant Band Organizer says they are happy to reflect the 50th Anniversary though their costumes.
Persons seeking to register can do so at the band house, R. K's Bar in Goodland or Boomerang Hair and Nail Lounge in Collymore Rock.
