Fab Fridayz – bringing you more entertainment


A new force is rising to bring a fresh flavour to the local entertainment scene, without leaving patrons broke.{{more}}

Organisers plan to generate a good vibes until the end of the year, and well into 2012.

July is looking to be an eventful month, with ‘Stagger’ on Friday, July 1, featuring Tallpree and Problem Child; ‘Amnesia’, the official last lap carnival fete on Tuesday, July 5; and ‘Rehab’ on Friday, July 15.

There’s also ‘Pretty in Pink’ on Friday, July 22, with proceeds being donated to the SVG Cancer Society, and a featured show dubbed ‘Vincy Mas meets Crop Over’ on Friday, July 29, when some of Barbados’s best deejays will come up against Vincy’s finest.

With a focus on “affordable entertainment”, the Fab Fridayz team has already whetted the appetites of party-goers with two popular regional artistes.

On Friday, June 10, Trinidadian artiste Cassi brought his ‘Town Ting’ to the Aquatic Club; much to the delight of those who attended Fab Fridayz’s inaugural event.

One patron explained that the change in venue, where most of the series of parties will be held, was a welcome diversion.

“The change of scenery was really bless. They have a court yard area so it’s an open vibe!” he said.

“The music was level. There were girls like peas, and drinks prices were reasonable.”

And the fun didn’t stop there.

On Friday, June 17, the Aquatic Club was buzzing once again with an even bigger crowd.

This time it was Trinidadian artiste Denise Belfon; showing the audience exactly why her alias is ‘Saucy Wow’.

The soca veteran demonstrated her famous ‘bicycle wine’ – putting to shame women half her age who ventured on stage to out-do her.

So that’s five full weekends of excitement.

And if it’s not enough, the Fab Fridayz team has something else up its sleeve for those who love old school dancehall music.

Starting Friday, August 5, organisers will bring the once-monthly ‘Dancehall Legends’ – featuring artistes such as Flourgon, Clement Irie, Daddy Lizard, Shabba Ranks, Super Cat and Barrington Levy.

All this is just the tip of the iceberg. So it’s imperative that patrons stay tuned to Fab Fridayz’s signal. (JV)
