AFTER THE RAIN, THE SPEKTAKULA STORM
Wednesday 9th May 2012

The disappointment that might have accompanied the inclement weather, forcing the postponement of the Wadadli Gold Calypso Spektakula last weekend has a silver lining.
 
DSC Promotions announced Wednesday that the rain date is May 19, start time 9 pm sharp, and the line-up has been expanded.
 
The show will be held at Antigua Recreation Grounds (ARG), and will showcase, among others, the internationally renowned Roy Cape All Starts, featuring Blaxx, Ricardo Dru and Darnella Simmons.
 
Black Stalin has also been added to the cast that includes Sugar Aloes, All Rounder, Nadia Baston, Supa Jigga TC, K Rich, and two Trinidad’s hottest and budding soca stars Erphaan Alves and Chucky.
 
From Antigua, there will be Tian Winter and iConic, Tizzy and El A Kru, King Hard Knaxx, Lee P Ching n Charlie X, Richie Francis and King Zacari.
 
Sly “Spektakula” J will share emcees duties with Supa Dymond.
Dymond, meanwhile, will have double duty as a deejay, alongside Ibis and Wooden Foot.
 
“We were disappointed that the rain foiled our plans for the Labour Day weekend, but we’re looking past that to the excitement that will characterize the show come May 19. Spektakula is, after all, the greatest soca show on the planet,” DSC Marketing Manager Neil Cochrane said.
 
“Our aim – the Spektakula aim – is to bring talented veterans and newcomers to the people. We will be doing that this year again, with some of the hottest songs and freshest, hot blood in the soca industry,” Cochrane added.
 
Tickets are on sale for $35 until May 12. The price is $40 thereafter. The ticket outlets are Super Power Electronics, Kennedy’s Liquor World, Bargain Centre, Perry Bay and Ken’s Club.
 
Event sponsors are Wadadli Gold; Courvoisier, Coca Cola, Johnnie Walker, Halcyon Cove by Rex Resorts, OBSERVER Media Group, and VYBZ FM.
