St. Vincentian soca artist Skinny Fabulous (Gamal Doyle) will be the headliner for Bacchanal New Year Band Launch & Fete slated for Mas Camp in St Andrew, Jamaica, on Saturday, January 3, 2014.
“We are very pleased that this New Year’s party is now one of the major events of the season attracting not only traditional revellers but a large band of new party goers eager to experience the fun of the carnival experience. It is the platform from which we introduce our costumes and this year we have a range of creative and exciting designs including front-line and backline costumes and four new outside sections from LehwegoSleek, Unleashed, Summer Jarrett, and Peeny Wallie Mas. There will also be T-shirts and leisure wear for the more conservative. We urge all who want to play mas to come out the party to ensure that they get the costumes of their choice,” said Charmaine Franklin, Bacchanal director.
New York-based Trinidad DJ Back2Basics and DJ Sanjay from Jamaica will also be entertaining patrons.
“Carnival is now firmly entrenched in the local entertainment scene and in typical Jamaican style we have given it our own flavour to make it a truly Jamaican experience. We at Bacchanal Jamaica are proud of the contribution we have made over the past 15 years to provide another important channel for creativity and cultural expression,” said Michael Ammar Jr, Bacchanal Jamaica director.
Skinny Fabulous, given name Gamal Doyle, got his break in 2008 with Head Bad (On De Spot). His other songs include Behaving The Worst, Made For This, and Anywhere That We Step.
