J4F Turns Up the Heat on Car­ni­val 2017

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

As the much awaited 2017 Car­ni­val sea­son jumps into high gear, Saint Lu­cia’s largest and most ex­cit­ing party band Just4Fun (J4F) has un­veiled an im­pres­sive ros­ter of ac­tiv­i­ties de­signed to keep car­ni­val en­thu­si­asts, rev­ellers, party go­ers, spon­sors and well­wish­ers thor­oughly en­ter­tained. Fol­low­ing an im­pres­sive launch in Jan­uary when eight sec­tions were un­veiled un­der this year’s theme ‘Es­cape’, J4F has led and sus­tained mo­men­tum ahead of Car­ni­val Mon­day & Tues­day(July 17 & 18) in the cap­i­tal Cas­tries.

Ac­claimed for its in­no­va­tive and trend­set­ting spirit, J4F, which prides it­self on de­liv­er­ing the ul­ti­mate car­ni­val ex­pe­ri­ence, has to date suc­cess­fully crowned a third Dig­i­cel Soca Switch cham­pion in the per­son of Bran­don of DYP fame and the first ever Cam­pari Kuduro Monarch Subance.

The Just4Fun team says rev­ellers, spon­sors, well­wish­ers and car­ni­val devo­tees have been show­ing up in large num­bers for a se­ries of ‘out of the or­di­nary’ band meet­ings that pro­vide car­ni­val en­thu­si­asts with a unique op­por­tu­nity to not only rekin­dle their car­ni­val spirit but to net­work, rub shoul­ders and com­pare notes,

“These se­ries of ac­tives not only pro­vide high qual­ity en­ter­tain­ment for pa­trons but serve as an in­cen­tive for en­ter­tain­ers, dee­jays, soca artistes, writ­ers, and ar­rangers etc. to dig deep and give of their best. Soca Switch alone awarded well over $35,000 in cold hard cash and prizes to the two win­ners, and the over­all eco­nomic spend in terms of host­ing such ac­tiv­i­ties is mul­ti­plied ten­fold into the lo­cal econ­omy,” a band rep­re­sen­ta­tive com­mented.

Among the list of mus­tat­tend events for the Car­ni­val sea­son are Just4Fun’s seven high pow­ered events begin­ning with Cooler Fete on June 24, a boat ride dubbed Soka on July 1, the ul­ti­mate all-in­clu­sive party dubbed Es­cape on July 13, the beach cooler fete Rem­edy on July 15, a unique break­fast party called In­dul­gence on July 16, the Jou­vert fete Jab Jab carded for July 16 and Last Lap Mas on July 19.

Pa­trons are en­cour­aged to drink and party re­spon­si­bly and to al­ways as­sign a des­ig­nated driver through­out the car­ni­val sea­son and be­yond.
