Carnival Mix #105 - Soca Til Sundown (Stampede Warm-up)

Drew and Anthony hit the airwaves on Saturday to start off a marathon of Soca music in the city for the Calgary Stampede. The 'Soca Til Sundown' Fete was slated to go on Soho's patio til 11pm when the rain started to fall earlier in the day and although the weather cleared up, we couldn't risk putting the equipment back outside for the night. The good news was that we just moved the party inside with all 6 DJs, and rather than jammin' til 11 we kept the party going til 2:30 in the morning.
