Lynx goes to the ‘movies’ for Vincy Mas 2k17
A number of movie box office hits have found their way into local masquerade, as Lynx Mas Band presents âAt the Moviesâ for Vincy Mas 2017.
The seven movies chosen and designed by Ossie Constance are âSpartansâ, âDirty Dancingâ, âThe Casino Jobâ, âChronicles of Narniaâ, âJeepers Creepersâ, âCrouching Tiger â Hidden Dragonâ and âPretty Womanâ.
Cornelius Thomas, band leader of the Lynx Mas Band, said that the movies were selected from different decades and are varied.
âI have always been toying with such ideas, as our band likes to bring mas which people can relate to and associate with,â Thomas commented.
âAgain, our band promises to be of a high standard and we are catering for the usual 200 to 250 masqueraders, which is a manageable number for our work forceâ¦ Also we have kept our prices within range of our customers,â he added.
Thomas revealed that the cost of the adult sections ranges from $300 to $500, with the childrenâs mas costing $150.
Lynx Mas band started in 2005, with its debut presentation âThe Books We Loveâ, and has been consistent since, except for a two-year break from 2013 to 2014.
Over the years, Lynx has excelled mostly in the Sections of the Band competition and placed fifth in the Band of the Year category with its presentation: âSend This, Send Thatâ.
Lynxâs mas tent is located at the back of the G & T Enterprise Supermarket in the old Roxy Bakery at Sion Hill.
The bandâs official launch takes place April 1, at the Sion Hill
