International soca artist Kevin Lyttle will be a feature performer at the Showdown Mas Camp on Friday, January 15, at the Harlem Plaza. Kevin Lyttle is from St. Vincent. His hit “Turn me on,” is very well known. He said while he is happy to be performing in Dominica as a guest artist, he is even more pleased that Dominican artistes are being recognized, and given the honours to open and close the show.
Cecil Moses, PRO for Showdown Mas Camp, said the organizers plan to bring a “new face” to the event and will adopt a “glow” theme.
“This week, it’s gonna be about glow. It’s gonna be about all white. Wear something white… get in there early. We will be presenting you with glow sticks… and then you can get a drink,” he said
Moses said the show will begin on time. “It will begin at 7:30pm. We’re kicking off bang on time,” he noted. “7:30 happy hour, as we did the last time. This time, it will be $25 from 7:30 to 8:30, and thereafter it will move up to $30. VIP will be $60.”
Meanwhile, Manager of Showdown Mas Camp, Dr. Valda Henry, promises a “massive show” with a “surprise package” for show-goers. “Our calypsonians are coming out with their A-game. I’m sure you all were blown away last week, and I promise you this week, you better really hold on,” she remarked.
Dr. Henry informed that the line-up for the show would be separated into four segments. “The first segment will begin with the anthem, and Ian Anthony is also going to be doing a guest performance for us”. Then “Our earlier calypsonians, will do the first part of the show … then recognition of the Bouyon pioneers—persons in the original WCK band … then Triple K … then Kevin Lyttle is going to come on and blow you away. We end the show with calypso from four of our key artistes… Bobb, Boople, Checko, and King Dice.”
