What's Going On? By Todd Mangatal
Greetings to all of our online community. I hope all of the Mothers had a very happy Mothers Day. At present this e-mail reaches over 25,000 people around the country & world, and is growing daily. Our goal is to unify the world through music, entertainment and information. As you know information is power!
Since we reach so many people we want to know what's going on in your Community, in order to share it with our on-line community. Please send us your information or place it on our "Message Board". Send/Post information regarding events, festivals, business or anything that may be of interest. For example, since we are presently based in the Washington DC area it is easy for us to obtain info. about local events, so if you were to travel to DC you would be very familiar with what's happening here. It would be nice to have the same amount of information from other major areas of the Country and World, so if anyone from DC or any other area travel to your town they would be familiar with places to eat, drink, party, etc.
I wanted to start off on a positive note so "Big Up" to VICE Promotions (locally here in DC) for the good show and for delivering what they promised. King Tut (VICE) keep your head up, it can only get better. Fayann Lyons...boy was she a good performer and great looking. I couldn't help "focusing on her body"...because she is extremely sexy, and Wow she could "wine". The back up band "Chaos" did pretty good, except the sound was a bit off. Maybe someone from the Chaos band could hit me back and tell me what went wrong. Naya George was good...I guess...because I was not focusing on him, my eyes was only on Fayann. For those who plan to attend DC Carnival get ready for a show, because it was just announced that she will be performing on Saturday, June 28th in the "DC Carnival Plaza". Look for me in front of the stage, behind the stage, on the stage, or maybe even under the stage "focusing on her body". She was really good, and has lots of potential.
Now, I must address my Soca Massives here in DC...All I ever hear is "there is not enough Soca shows coming to this town", or "there is not enough Soca played in the clubs and on the radio" except for the few local Caribbean one-day a week shows. Clearly, there is a reason for this, and that's because you do not support the music and the artists you say you love. Due to this the music is de-valued, and along with that the Club owners and promoters think it is not profitable to bring Soca artists to town. Let me give you a little insight in the music business. Your average Soca artist will perform anywhere from $1,500-$3,000, whereas a Reggae artist of the same caliber will perform for approx. $5,000-$20,000+. The reason for this is because a Reggae show in this town can draw approx. 1,500 to 3,000 plus people. The same soca show will not draw more than 200-300 people at the most, except around the Carnival weekend. Keep in mind whether it's a Soca or Reggae show, the expenses would be approximately the same, except for the price of the artist. Also, keep in mind that the ticket price of a reggae show can go as high as $50.00 and the attendees will not complain, but when the ticket price of a Soca show gets above $25.00, all you hear is "Oh gosh man, why dey charging so much". So with this in mind, tell me if you were a promoter what show would you bring? Hit me back and let me know email@example.com, and for my out-of-towners let me know if it's like this in your area. Remember Don't de-value our soca artists!!!!!!!!
This week we attended the DC Carnival "Information Session". This session was well organized, and put together to dispel any rumors or misconceptions regarding the DC Carnival move to Downtown DC. This forum gave attendees the opportunity to address questions to all of the members of the organizing Committee of the Carnival. I must say this was a good idea, and was very informative. In my opinion this must be done every year. What really surprised me was the fact that the individuals who have been opposing this move, and have been "spreading" many misconceptions, did not even attend. You would think, they would have come out to express their point of view publicly, if they believed in it so strongly. So as the song says "Don't follow rumors"! If you have a question, go straight to the source and ask!
We also met a very positive person at this meeting. Mr. John McKenzie who is the publisher of an on-line newsletter called COCO pages - www.cocopages.com and is starting a Caribbean Chamber of Commerce in the DC Area. Which I think is very needed, and I offer him all the support he may need to get this off the ground. Additionally, he has a small business referral network and event promotion business www.wavagroup.com
Check out this Brother sites, and give him some support, because he is very positive.
John it was a pleasure meeting you, and remember my advise!
Again to my Soca Massives here in DC, MD., VA...there are many events taking place this weekend such as Band Launchings, Jr. Pan Competition, etc. Go out and give them some support, and help your culture grow.
If you have not experienced the Soca scene, and all I have described. It's something you should really check out. Remember to join us for DC Carnival 2003 and experience the many events that will be taking place on Carnival Weekend!
