All seven (7) bands from sister-isle Tobago are among the thirty qualifiers.
Good luck to all on Sunday.
Good luck Merrytones
Many many thanks bro...hoping to get audio, at least to upload soon...the recording team didn't accompany the judges when they visited us on Tuesday night...
merrytonestothebone: as long as you keep liming on this forum dem PAN TRINBAGO judges sure to ROB you to the FULL EXTREME.
Yuh believe a judge tell the band manager right after the performance that she "don't like those types of tunes"?....well words to that effect...I wonder what would have been her response if she were judging the Large category and had listened the the Charlotte Street band?
That is why I SO LOVE the Trinidad culture!!! Being the STONE COLD calypso lover that I am, I would have loved to hear what defines "those types of tunes" in her mind. Next year yuh better consult with that judge before you select your tune.
merrytones, allyuh have full support from the forumites, we only want to be in the bunch for the finals, that's when we go FULL EXTREME.
