High standard calypso elimination contest

Calypso  (24)

After poor weather among other problems as well as a disappointing planned clash with the Leeward Islands Basketball championships starting in Montserrat, forced the postponement last Friday evening, the 2014 Calypso competition got off to successful completion of the elimination contest.

33 entrants participated on the new festival village grounds west of the cricket field where it has recently been held in Little Bay. Most regarded that the standard was the highest and believe that the production of the competition for this year will be the best it has been for some time.

The Calypsonians who made it to the semi-finals are:
James Browne ‘Cruza’ — Rum
Joy Williams ‘Dynamite’– War is a big big business
Stevel Rodney ‘Mighty Soca’ — Red up de place
Rondell Meade– I am a Socaholic
Silvina Malone ‘Kandie’ — Deliver us from evil
Garnett Thompson ‘Sylk’ — Change
Charles Fenton ‘Ras Ipa’ — Island Living
Davon Williams ‘Rakatang’– Ask Reuben
Earl Browne ‘Hustler’ — Back with a bang
Leroy Daley ‘Jah Wanza’– Should I
Steve Jeffery ‘GT’– Wha dem doing to de land
Herman Francis ‘Cupid’ — Ebola
Maggie Destouche ‘Maggie D’– Letter to Mama
Kelvin Duberry ‘Tabu’– This Country Needs You
Keithroy Morson ‘De Bear’– Don’t forget your Juliett
Maxcine Lee– Resurrection

William Sweeney ‘Black Jaguar’ gets a bye to the semi-finals’. The Festival committee explains that Sweeney resides in the U.S, had traveled to Montserrat for the Eliminations which was original scheduled for Dec 5. The show was postponed to the 10th for reasons above and due to commitments in the U.S Black Jaguar had to return there and miss the Eliminations because of the date change. This was no fault of his and a decision was taken to give him a bye to the semi-finals.

There was one disappointment showing perhaps how tight the competition was, that ‘Shamrock’ a young Jamaican music entertainer did not make the ‘cut’.

The skies opened as rain poured at the very end of the competition allowing only enough time for a hurried announcement  of the those moving on.
