Skinny Fabulous and Fya Empress Reign Supreme at Vincy Mas 2012

Congratulations to the new Soca Monarch 2012 for St. Vincent, Skinny Fabulous who commanded the crowd with his performance of "Monster" on Saturday night at Victoria Park.  With last year's monarch 'Fireman Hooper' refusing to defend his title for 2012 there was a bit of controversy around this year's competition.  Either way, Skinny was clearly this year's crowd favourite and scores a well deserved 4th Soca Monarch title win.  Congratulations also to Fya Empress who had a massive SVG Carnival 2012.  She came in 2nd in the Soca Monarch with her performance of "Rum Please" adding to both her 'Ragga Soca' Monarch and Calypso Monarch wins for 2012,  giving her a placing in all this year's major competitions.  Check Here for all the Vincy Mas Soca Monarch 2012 Results or check the official SVG Carnival page

We went "Limin" with we bucket 'till 5am!

Big up to Hot Box inc for throwing Alberta's first COOLER/Bucket FETE!  On Saturday July 7th 2012, the "Lime" at the Rossdale Brewery (9843-100 Street Edmonton) was open to all of us bringing our buckets pre-filled with booze!

This was an indoor/outdoor fete, although with the fantastic weather everyone chose to be outside under the trees.  The food was nice, the atmosphere was definitely something we had never before seen in Alberta, EVERYBODY brought a stocked cooler, and we literally partied till the sun came up!

Let's hope that more events like this can be put on in the future.  Thanks again to both DJ Diamond and DJ Gamegirl who played alongside Calgary Soca's own Drew Atlas and kept the party going till 5am. 

DJ Gamegirl took a few pics which she posted on her FB page.  We have a few below for you, just in case you missed out
