"I stand corrected. Is it the first music festival in Trinidad. Or the first festival run by the steelband body themselves . My information is that the first festival was held in 1952 and the prelims were held at theCocorite youth centre…"
"Invaders beating sweet ah ha coming up park street ah ha Tokyo, coming down beating very slow. And friends when the two bands clash, papa yo if you see cutlash . Never me again To jump in a steelband in port of Spain"
Spinks my boy. I am so sorry to hear one of my beloved former work buddy has passed. You remember on Carnival day I asked you about him. I am very saddened by that news. I am thankful that you notified me about it. My sincere condolenses to his entire family and also his former work mates from the K9 Branch. He and I used to be partners on the President guard together, we even worked together at the President House in Tobago.I visited his home in Tobago and we drank coconuts water from a tree in his yard. He was my good friend, its a loss to all of us. 'May his soul rest in peace.' I am glad that I could of called him my friend. Thanks a lot James aka 'Friday / Spinks.
