HERE'S WHAT'S HAPPENING IN PARLIAMENT
FROM JANUARY 16 TO 22, 2015
Having back-to-back fun at QRC's Fete Royal.
This week I heard my first contender for National
Calypso Monarch honours. It s reigning Young
Kings Monarch Stephen Marcelle s If It Ain t One
Thing, It s Another.
A cabaret singer managed by Roxanne Browne-
Phillips, Marcelle has been knocking on the doors of
calypso for quite some time. His song was composed
by Nigel Davidson and arranged by Junior Ibo Joseph.
Browne-Phillips said this week: "This is a big song
that has a lot of potential. The opening bars of the
song isn t a sample of the original song. It s by singers
Ibo got together in his studio. Stephen is consistent
and has been working really hard in calypso. He isn t
even in a calypso tent this year as he was writing
exams when auditions were in progress. He auditioned
for one tent but its management rejected the song,
maybe because of its political nature? We in his camp
know that he has the ability to be a deserving monarch
but, at the end of the day, it s all up to the people
who judge the competition."

Popular soca artistes and bands are not necessary
to rock a Carnival party. All that s needed is one good
disc jockey. Belmont s DJ Cutting Crew did just just
this when he played last Sunday at a J Ouvert band
launch at Rafa clubhouse, Queen s Park East, Port-
of-Spain. Cutting Crew had the party swinging non-
stop from mid-afternoon to Sunday night.
The band A Fan Fare for the Kings & Queens of
Carnival 1959-2014, is being produced for the second
year by veteran mas man Peter "Blues" Reynald under
the banner of West Indian Roofing Fan Fare & Asso-
ciates. The party was a semi-inclusive and for an
admission fee of $30, yes $30, patrons were treated
to hops and buljhol, hops and chicken gizzard, bake
and shark, split peas and rice cook-up, and other
cuisine. Premium drinks were also on sale at rea-
To play in Reynald s band, which will be all-inclu-
sive, masqueraders are being charged $150. This guar-
antees drinks and breakfast on J Ouvert morning.
Music will be by DJ Cutting Crew on a 40-foot trailer.
Before Carnival weekend, Reynald will be hosting a
"blow out" at the band s camp, located at 22 Belmont
Circular Road, on January 30.
The schools all-inclusive fund-raising itinerary
continues tomorrow with the equally popular Hilarians
fete, at Bishop Anstey High School, Abercromby
Street, at 5 pm. There will be no Destra and her band
Bakanal at the party this year but it will be adequately
fuelled by Roy Cape All Stars, feat Blaxx and Darnella
Simmons; Bunji Garlin, Fay Ann Lyons & The Asylum
Band; Dil-e-Nadan, feat Raymond Ramnarine, plus
