WHAT'S HAPPENING by Todd Mangatal

Greetings To all, my on-line family:

Due to this week's busy itinerary, we at (Arious) started on this "What's Happening" Weekly update very late.  Forgive us for the lateness! 

Last night (Thursday, August 19th) we were graced with the musical sounds of Steel Pulse here in Washington, DC.  Walther Productions held this concert at the 930 Club, and it was a great show.  The turn out was wonderful, lots of people from all races and colors were blessed by Steel Pulse's uplifting sounds for 1 hour & a 1/2.  From our observation, people/fans completely enjoyed themselves; the vibes were really nice in the place, which was quite noticeable from the moving, dancing, swaying and singing of all the tunes by the many fans.   We, and our small crew enjoyed ourselves as well.   I'd like to commend Walther Productions on putting on such a quality event.  Big up to Tim and Mook!  It was really nice meeting and greeting many of you from our On-Line Family, especially Ann, Frank, Dera, Ed, Ziggy, Gino from Reggae One, Mr. Cool, Finiana (2003 Caribbean Pride Queen) and many more.  Look out for more Walther Productions events, they do it right!

The Miss T&T New York Contest took place on Wednesday night (August 18th) in Manhattan, New York at Mumbia Club, (soon to be called "The City").  We arrived at this club and everything was in place for us, thanks to Ms. Cummings.  The club itself was really nice and lots of people were in attendance.  After finding a spot to chill we began relaxing with drinks and food, soon thereafter the DJ announced that it was time for the introductions from the organizers, and the presentation and introduction of the young ladies.  Wow, the young ladies were "fine", every one of them!   I must agree with Brian of ICE Productions (he had e-mailed me and informed me that these young ladies were very beautiful).  They truly are!  Brian had seen them over the past weekend while he was representing DC as a judge in the 2004 New York Soca Monarch Contest; he stated they had made a special appearance at that event.  Look out for photos next week, so you can judge for yourself.   Also, check out the contest, which is scheduled to take place on September 19th at Pace University in Manhattan.

Last Sunday (August 15th) the DC Caribbean Carnival Inc. held their Annual Awards Presentation Ceremony.  The event was well attended, and they had some great performances from the new Puerto Rican Group who took part in Carnival this year (1st year) "Racies de Borinquen", along with Melvin Deal West African Dancers & Drummers and Pan Masters Steel Orchestra.  The entire evening was very nice and well organized.  Congratulations to all the winners, and thanks to all the supporters who attended.  Photos will be added to the DC Carnival site soon!!!!

Last Saturday The Trinidad and Tobago 25th Round Robin Soccer Tournament was really nice.  The thing we like the most about these events is the "liming", and I must say even though it was pouring down raining, that didn't stop the "lime", nor did it stop lots of folks from attending.  It was real nice!  Thanks to Barry (Roots and Culture Promotions) and his partners for the cocktails, along with Arvy, Nigel and all there partners too.  By the time we were ready to leave our heads were feeling good.  Oh, Mr. Seko brought out the real Trini killa stuff (babbash), and my wife couldn't resist, so of course she was "real right" after that.  Susan from Baltimore was hanging too, and it's always a pleasure seeing Susan...Big up!  A lot of people who know Susan from Baltimore will agree with me.  Congratulations to Mark Kendal, his family and partners for a successful event...The rain didn't stop the crowd!  Also, congratulations to the winners: "Flavor Kids" who won The Open Division, and "The New Jersey Islanders" who won The Masters Division. 

Oh, with our busy schedule this week, I completely forgot to mention (above) that we saw Culture last Friday, and they put on  a great show.  They performed for at least 1 hour and 1/2 and had intended to do more, but the concert was held outside and the rain stopped the show.  However, I think everyone was fulfilled with Culture's performance.  It's such a treat to hear these positive artists/groups such as Culture and Steel Pulse, who have been in the business for many years.  Clearly, Positivity creates Longevity!!!

In closing I want to thank everyone who responded to us last week in regards to our article on "Slackness".  I'm happy to say many of you agreed with our comments, and some of you even gave some good input on how to solve this problem.  One good suggestion we got from many people was that concerts should be rated, just like movies are.  I too think that's a great idea.  However, I was very pleased that this particularly commentary was very thought provoking to everyone, and was a topic for much discussion this past week.   Everywhere we went people wanted to discuss this issue with us, and we really appreciate that.  Please continue giving us feedback on all of my commentaries, good or bad, all of it is welcome, because we obtain so much knowledge from your comments and suggestions.

Let me congratulate the winners of the 2004 New York Soca Monarch Contest.  1st place winner is Meschach, 2nd place winner is D'Royce and 3rd place winner is Kaotic.

To the local folks, this weekend we'll see you all at Pang's Birthday Party. Happy Birthday Pang!!!!!

Until Next Week!
