    Since this is a Dominican thing with a few Caribbean artists it really did not interest me..Dominican artists always late and they walking in and talking with all dick tom and harry outside..when they say a show is 9 o’clock, don’t kill yourself to be there, it always starts 3hours later. My other problem is the bands play too loud and you can hardly hear what the artist. saying.

    I never knew there was a Mas Camp Caribbean. I thought was Showdown INC. The Puppet Master at it again. Only one Mas Camp Calypsonian at a Mas Camp organised event. Shame Shame Shame then all you want to have Annemarie Clarke under stress

    In “New York City?” New York City has Five Boroughs. Where is he going to be? my guess is Brooklyn…hehehehehehe that’s where they have all de carnival and bacanal.

      Yes Frabo, your guess is correct as Empire Boulevard is in Brooklyn.

    We support our own but we always get late start, bogus acts sometimes. Still suffering from that Chubby jam that never took place at tropical reflections. I had better things to do with my $40.00, than to give it up for .BS. come on guys do better than that, you know yourselves. And stop blaming Dominicans for not supporting our thing. I will take a rain check on this one. But good luck guys.

      What is this person talking about? Wasn’t Chubby and Groovers playing at Tropic Reflections last year May and Labour Day weekend? Fanatik played as well. Why some Dominicans like to do that? I remember Groovers playing for a very short time when Fanatik played, but it was wrong to say that they did not play. That is pure propaganda and wickedness on your part. WHoever you are.

        Smarty! yes you said it your self. they may have played for a little bit” but that was not the plan as advertized, my conversation with Chubby who i must say was blue vex to be put in such a situation as a professional performer was a dam shame. I have no horse in this race except to fork over my hard earned $$$$$`s in the name of supporting “Our thing” So who ever you are put that in your pipe and smoke it. See you when ther`s a real show.

      You too like trouble. You do not know the response of all the invited artist. Some of them may have not go time off. Also the event could have been planned late. It is just a start for better and more organised things to come. Don’t start bashing yet.
