    But I thought soca was the greatest music on the planet?! :

    Soca = Warm weather music
    Reggae/Slow Jamz/R&B/Rap = Year round

    Well this is not true of the "small island" community in So. Flo cuz they listen soca all year round. I myself have been to soca fetes down there apart from Carnival, and they were not flops buh i'm sure there are some that do. I was told that timing is everything, and January is the worst month and promoters should know that. Also, wid small islands folks they prefer live bands which doan come to So. Flo as often as they come to NY (). Another thing to consider is that the lifestyle down there is more laid back and people dealing with lower salaries, many can't afford to fete every weekend.

    Here in NY i went to three fetes this weekend all flopped except Red Hot Flames...go figure

    People in So Flo dont want to pay 40 and 50 to go to a fete. They cheap. They dont support, however, the small islanders does. If small axe come her or flames or jam band, u will see the entire place packed tuh capacity. It is more expensive to bring a band from trini. Promoters doesnt want to take the risk, so they would rather bring a single artist. But personally, i doh wah hear no siongle artist on tracks,,, I wah hear the whole band. So when Machel was here de other day, i didnt waste my time and money. A fete is not a fete without a live band.
    The love of my life is an Imixer!!!
