Swagger to take Labour Day fete to another level


As members of the Vincentian community prepare for another actionpacked Labour Day weekend in New York in about a week’s time, one group has decided to answer the call of those in the Diaspora for the lifting of the standard of Vincy entertainment during the celebrations.{{more}}

Swagger Entertainment, a group of Vincentian promoters which has been involved in the production of shows over the years, has this year decided to take the weekend celebrations to another level, with the hosting of three major events.

Kevin Weekes, local spokesperson for the New York-based group, said that the group will start the ball rolling with a fashion show on the night of Saturday, September 5th, at the Aviator Sports and Entertainment Complex in Flatbush, Brooklyn.

The show will feature the styles of Weekes’ sister-in-law Donna, a designer in her own right, whose designs will be displayed by some of the top models in New York.

The second event will be held following the show, which is scheduled to begin at 6pm.

According to Weekes, the beast will be let go and the whole place will ‘mash up’ and turn over, causing patrons to beg for more water.

The Vincy Soca Extravaganza, as it is billed, will feature an all Vincentian cast of performers and takes place at the same venue.

He indicated that a discount will be offered to persons opting to attend both events.

The third event takes place the following day; an all white boat ride dubbed ‘Blanc Sur Blanc’ which leaves Pier 10 in Sheepshead Bay in Brooklyn, sailing up the Hudson River to Manhattan and back.

Various local artistes and DJs are also expected to perform during the cruise.

Weekes indicated that what makes these events stand out from previous Vincentian themed events are the location and accommodation.

He said that the Aviator Sports and Recreational Complex, which hosts two of the events, is a top of the line venue that promises to be the difference between other parties that patrons attended in the past.

He also said that Sunday’s cruisers will be ferried on one of the most luxurious and comfortable liners in the area, and promised that the artistes advertised on the groups’ events will definitely be in attendance, as opposed to no shows on previous dates.

Weekes and other members of Swagger Entertainment are hopeful that by raising the standard of Vincy entertainment during Labor Day and beyond, other nationalities will also be drawn to what Vincentian artistes and promoters have to offer.

He said Labor Day activities is expected to become a regular on the holiday’s calendar of events.
