Ready to party
Dion Rochester, who started the band said this is the first time for him but he has worked with other bands including Island Fusion, Baje International and Power X 4.
He explained that given it was a community band with people from Jackson and West Terrace, he has been working with Tony Trotman, Rondell Ifill and Shanelle Lewis who have joined the team to put the band on the road.
The packages include costumes which for the women are baby tees and either leggings or panty shorts and for the men get tee shirts. There are also frontline costumes.
Revellers will also get mugs, whistles, body paint, scarfs, unlimited drinks, and breakfast at the end of the jump from the City to Spring Garden Highway.
There are also packages for groups of five or more as well as discounts if people register before June 25.
Rochester said that sponsorship is “so-so” and was not the best but with help from Superior Cuts, TC Trucking, RAI Roofing, A & A wholesale, Code One Plus and Access Granted, they will put the band on the road. Additionally, there will be fetes leading up to Foreday Mornin’ to help offset the cost of putting the band on the road.
Rochester said if everything goes well this year, Party Bubblers will be back next year and they will have events year round not just for Crop-Over.
