EHS: Showdown Mas Camp calypso thriller this weekend

Calypso Dream TeamThis weekend, Saturday 10th August, Dominican calypso lovers in the US are anticipating a thrill of a calypso show to be put on by the Showdown Mas Camp.

‘The Calypso Dream Team-New York Invasion’ as the show is dubbed, will feature many of Mas Camp’s premier acts, including; the only six times calypso king Dice, several times road march king, The Sye, this year’s road march king De Rose. Also featuring are De Bobb, Soul Puss, Trendsetter, The Young Bull, Peter Pross, this year’s controversial Calypso King Daddy Miller. There’ll be guest appearances by King Scrunter, Sour Sour, The Triumph and King Mosei from St. Thomas.

The artists will be backed up by The Mas Camp All Star Band, this time featuring some legendary musicians from the Caribbean such as Frankie McIntosh, Trinidad and Tobago’s leading arranger and keyboardist, Charles Dougerty from Jamaica and other Caribbean notables.

One highlight of the spectacle that patrons are looking forward to is the pre-release of Peter Prosper’s song for carnival 2014, entitled “You Marry Behind Our Back”.

His radio prerelease on The Hot Seat last week, has already caused a stir among calypso lovers.

Peter Pros is known for his satirical lyrics.

A sensay costume appearance will also be part of the entertainment and a Bello products basket will be raffled from purchased tickets.

Tickets for the show are available for advance purchase at various locations in the US and online at www.islandeventtickets.com or call 347 617 9555 for more ticket information.

Patrons who are unable to attend can purchase online pay per view tdnentertainment.net, or via link from Dominica News Online (DNO).

    A lot of the moneys generated is going to stay in America’s economy. Which is good. How much of that money is going to Dominica, to do something constructive for our country. WE REALLY NEED SOME DEVELOPMENT IN DOMINICA. PARTY, PARTY, PARTY. After all these is over, we go back to reality.

      At Least Mas Camp bringing up Dominican artists on their own money and Dominicans in the US must spend their money in the US too, but what about your Prime minister who using Dominica Tax money to sponsor Stardom to go up to the US for that same thing, even artists who not singing getting a trip too while my constituency suffering

      How is the money staying in America? All the calypsonians going home with some US in their pockets. When these guys go home with their earnings and they spend in the shops and other businesses, money in circulation. Stop being petty. All Pat business is in Dominica, so either way Dominica economy going to get a piece of the action including VAT. VAT money goes towards hospital, roads, education. It’s a win, win all over.
