PRESS RELEASE – Due to exuberant fan demand,Digicel endorsed and multi-Soca and Road march King Ricky T will host his first Groovy and Power Soca concert on Friday July 10 2015 at the Gaiety Gardens.
After seasons of unparrelled success on the competition stage the “Tizzle” decided to take advantage of new opportunities. “This year, we want to give Soca fans an opportunity to see their favourite elements of Soca in a well-thought-out and world class production which will highlight artistes they haven’t seen on our St. Lucian stage in a long time together with the island’s biggest and best names”.
The star studded line up will feature former Soca Monarch from Trinidad and Tobago Iwer George. Neil ‘ D’ Boss Iwer’ George is one of Trinidad’s cultural icons who has consistently released hits from the beginning of his early career in 1987 to present.
The name Iwer George is synonymous with the Carnival season and is no stranger to the stage in St. Lucia. “When I explode unto the stage my mission is to totally entertain my audience. The “ting” has to happen because I am prepared to die to make it happen,” George states.
Soca Explosion will also feature the likes of Denise “Saucy Wow” Belfon, Dominican and Boyoun music pioneer Nayee, Skinny Banton (Saltfish), Mr.Killa (Rolly Polly), and former International Soca Monarch Shurwayne Winchester.
St. Lucia will be well represented by a stellar cast featuring Sir Lance-a-lot, Superman HD,Q-Pid, Ezra D’Fun Machine, Hollywood HP, Michael Robinson, Sergie, Invader, and Ashanti, just to name a few, all backed by the number one party band with brass, D.Y.P.
We look forward to continuing our great relationships with sponsors, designers, press, and all of our fans—and with only a few days until show time,the productions crew has kicked into full gear and are committed to making this year’s production one that goes down in history.
