LUNCH TIME CALYPSO AT WADADLI BEER CALYPSO CORNER COMMENCES
Wednesday 19th June 2013

The Carnival Development Committee (CDC) is pleased to announce that “Lunch Time Calypso” at Wadadli Beer Calypso Corner, located at the junction of High Street and Corn Alley, is back. Lunch Time Calypso will commence tomorrow, Wednesday, June 19th, 11am to 2.30pm, and will run every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday until Friday July 26th.

This is the sophomore year for the initiative which is organized and executed by the CDC Calypso Monarch Sub-Committee in conjunction with the Calypso Monarch competition title sponsors, Wadadli Beer and Kennedy’s Club Ltd. 
 
Chairman of the Calypso Monarch Sub-Committee Dion Simmons said his committee sees the lunch-time event as a way to bring calypso to the people and for the artistes to gain added exposure for themselves and their music.
 
“This is a win-win situation for all parties, including the sponsors. The series of events supports the airplay, the tent appearances and other avenues for getting the music out there where the artistes are concerned. It gives the sponsors, who have been investing Carnival and specifically calypso for 13 years, more mileage; and it builds the interest and the hype for the quarterfinals, semifinals and, ultimately, Carnival Sunday night,” Simmons said.
 
“We anticipate that the public will show the same overwhelming support that they did last year, especially since Lunch Time Calypso is centrally located and accommodates most people’s lunch hour,” Simmons added. 
 
The Calypso Sub-committee chairman thanked Wadadli Beer and Kennedy’s Club Ltd. for their sponsorship and passion, and the artistes and calypso lovers. Simmons also issued a call the creation of synergies to ensure that calypso retakes pride of place during the annual festival.
