In celebration of Trinidad and Tobago’s 50th Anniversary of Independence the Socaholic’s team put on an event which was open to all.
I believe it is important to recognise milestones in life and 50 years of Independence is just that, so thank you Socaholics for providing us with a platform to celebrate on.
It was nice to see people from many different Islands also joining in the celebrations. I think in the UK people get caught up in a foolish and pointless ‘island war’. We are all one people and we should all recognise and support the achievements of others.
The Vibe: Slow to start. People arrived late (after 1pm) I can only assume they were at pre independence events before hand. The vibes did build to the point were some were rolling on the floor.
The Music: Supplied by DJ Chris Vee, DJ Tate and Martin Jay was a good mix of some back-in-times classics to the current soca hits. The music wasn’t rushed. It was played at the right pitch and suited all the fetters.
The Crowd: A mixed crowd of differing age groups and backgrounds all with the common love for the music and the culture. Patriotic Trini’s represented well with flags, horns and whistles.
All-in-all: A worthy event to celebrate one of our fellow Islands milestones.
