The event will feature artistes DJ Twenty, Delroy ‘Fireman’ Hooper, and Sexy Sugarz, Road March and former Soca Monarch Cornelius ‘Poorsah’ Williams.

Jamal ‘Skinny Fabulous’ Doyle, who has Chateaubelair roots, adds to the cast. Virus and the Raspect family are among the home based performers. Alla-G, Homey and Hot Sand will join them.

Musical output will be fortified by Johnny Q, from Trinidad and Tobago, supported by Exclusive Sounds, the Blow Out Crew, Kid Supreme, DJ Roach, Fugitive and Ice Cold.

This event is a continuation of activities which peaked in North Leeward two weeks ago. Royalties hit the spotlight in beauty and calypso shows, and the culmination was a street party also featuring the Roses Crew.

Some of the biggest contenders for this year’s Road March are emerging from the district. Numbers like DJ Twenty’s ‘Soca Doctor,’ Fireman’s ‘Mad too,’ and Poorsah’s ‘Soft man,’ are reflective of the area’s prolific output.

And Roses Crew enhanced their outlook when Sexy Sugarz won the first female Soca monarch competition.
