All about history
Bandleader Earl Gill told Barbados TODAY that every year he tries to create something local in an effort to “keep it at home”.
“The band is based on the changes of Barbados’ history from where we started to where we ended up,” he explained.
The name of the band is History Page and the 300 revellers can choose from costumes in four sections Arawak, Royalty, African, and De Pride.
The band was launched on Saturday night at Tyrol Cot in Codrington Hill, St. Michael which is also the band house.
Gill said that fete will be held every Thursday night to help offset the cost of putting the band on the road. He also said that he and sponsors have had a great relationship for the past six years so he had no challenges in this area. (DS)
