Event Schedule + Tickets

We are still finalizing our artists. Currently, we have the following artists scheduled to perform in 2019.

Patrice Roberts

Patrice Roberts

It was in 2005 when the world heard her voice alongside that of Bunji Garlin. Speedily the question of who she was circled the Caribbean entertainment industry, with only a few being able to provide an accurate answer. It was her refreshingly soothing and powerful vocals that quickly got her the attention that many established entertainers would have desired years before her name popped up. Now, fondly referred to by her close friends and family as Patsy, Patrice Roberts has assumed her position in the Caribbean music industry as a force to be reckoned with.

Razor & Leonce + The Request Band

Leonce –

From the time she was a little girl dancing in the front row isles of Spectacular Forum, Leonce has loved and has always been surrounded by soca music. Living on the sweet twin islands of Trinidad & Tobago, Leonce’s first chance of fulfilling her fantasy came when she performed at the junior calypso competition.

In 2005 after meeting Rayzor, band leader and lead male vocalist of The Request Band based in NY, she was given a shot at joining the band. With Rayzor now being her mentor, she has now become the number one female vocalist in North America and it’s only the lack of opportunity to break through and gain the respect deserved from her peers in the country where she was born and raised is missing.

Leonce has been nurtured by influences such as Lord Kitchner, Singing Sandra, The Watch Man, Trinidad Rio, Denyse Plummer & Ella Andel and will continue to be disciplined as she has been showing since becoming the lead female front line vocalist (State Year)with the NY based Request Band destined to follow in the footsteps of Destra Garcia, Fayann Lyons, Allison Hinds and Shennel Demster Etc

Her release for 2016 WARN DEM has amassed close to 200,000 views on youtube since its been released.WARN DEM should a mega hit to look out for this upcoming Carnival once given its fair share of exposure.

Rayzor –

Rayzor has been singing from as early as he could remember. Coming from a musical family in La Brea, South Trinidad. Performing was just a way to have fun and to pass time. His early influences came from Ninjaman, Capleton and Wayne Wonder as he was a big fan of dancehall music.

In 1998, Rayzor and a few artist from Port of Spain formed a group called the XTREMISTS. Under the guidance of a local “Soca Michael Jackson” impersonator Andy Stephenson, Rayzor made the transition from dancehall and became a Soca Artist.

After having the added influence of artists such as Andy, Ajala, KMC, Machel Montano and others to learn from and to build upon, he worked on his craft with dedication and hard work. He later migrated to the U.S and became a member other The Request Band which he’s now the band leader and lead vocalist.

He is best know for past mega hits like “SPONSOR MEH” The Cooler Fete Anthem and Summer Mega Hit which in 2013 won him the Soca Award for “Best US Based Song” alongside the biggest North American Soca Collaboration “BESS FETE” which was done together with RQB bandmate Leonce RQB. A song that dominated the airwaves and Synergy TV.

Rayzor is destined for greatness and it shows as he continues to work hard with his band to spread Soca music in to the masses worldwide.

His 2016 release GYAL DROP DAT on the warn dem riddim is an energetic party starter for the Ladies.
