Blondie Bird and Friends mas band can now chant ‘Four in a Row,’ after winning last Saturday’s Junior Band of the Year competition.

Victoria Park saw the Mas band’s presentation “It Is What It Is” top five of the seven judged categories with their two sections “Warmth” and “Paradise”.

The band, which is sponsored by BMC Agencies and Magic 103.7 FM and led by Elroy ‘Blondie Bird’ Boyd, also walked away with the first and fourth positions in the individuals 5-9 category.

“Mystery” won the band first place in the individuals 10-15 category, beating out SVG Players International Mas Band “Star Gate – ISIS Goddess of Magic”, which landed second place.

Their rendition of “Warmth” copped the win in the Junior Queen of Carnival category, while SVG Players International’s “Star Gate – ISIS Goddess of Magic” placed second and Digicel Nelson Bloc’s “The Magician” and Lynx Mas Band’s “Spartans” settled with third and fourth place respectively.

However, SVG Players International Mas Band “Electro Magnet Pulse” stole the win in the Junior King of Carnival category, knocking Blondie Bird and Friend’s “Somewhere out there” into the second position.

Metrocint High Voltage Mas Production’s “Labour” and Digicel Nelson Bloc’s “Aladdin” saw third and fourth place respectively.

Blondie Bird and Friends, was however, able to turn the tables in the Best Junior Section when “Warmth” and “Paradise” secured the first and second position, respectively.

Meanwhile, SVG Players International Mas Band’s “Star Wars – The Empire strikes back” and “Star Gate – The return of RA” placed third and fourth in that category. Digicel Nelson Bloc’s “Cupid” placed fifth.

“It Is What It Is” was also able to edge SVG Players International’s “Star Date 2525:The Future is now” into second place in the Junior Band of the Year category after losing to them last year.

However, “Star Date 2525: The future is now” was able to bring back the win for SVG Players International in the Uptown Competition.
