In 2017, I went to Bermuda for carnival and had an absolute blast. From the moment I landed, I was greeted by pleasant Bermudians, lived my best life at Raft Up [a beach party event] and enjoyed the vibes with my band, Party People Entertainment.
As carnival in Bermuda continues to grow, so does the number of patrons flying in and of course, the need for more information. I decided to head to Bermuda again in 2019, and I will be playing mas with Party People once more. I still remember being drunk as ever during rest stop and eating delicious fried fish and fresh salad. [they literally were frying our fish on the spot].
When: June 13 – 18, 2019. Airport Code: BDA
Okay enough of me being greedy. So Party People is turning FIVE this year, and I know they planned to celebrate in a big way, so I scored an interview for you guys to get a behind the scenes peek into their brand.
Who is Party People Mas?
Party People Mas was conceptualized in 2015 to participate in Bermuda’s First Inaugural Parade of Bands, created by a team of vibrant die-hard soca lovers who shared a love for BACCHANAL. The band leaders alone, have traveled to over 40+ carnivals collectively and when asked to enter a band they decided to take on the challenge. Thus creating, Party People Mas.
Party People Mas is now heading into its fifth year as a Carnival Band and we have truly found our unique carnival identity and live in the hearts of our masqueraders. In the last 4 years, we have had some major triumphs, most notably Band of the Year 2015 and 2018 along with some amazing learning opportunities.
What experience do you want your masqueraders to have?
Party People prides itself on being known for providing masqueraders with an invigorating, inspiring and unsurpassed road experience. Our team put measures in place to ensure we provide a high-end product. As experienced carnival chasers, we know that mas is more than just hitting the road.
We want to provide a holistic approach for all those involved; we want our patrons to be engaged from our costume reveals and launch to accessing our interactive website and utilizing premium concierge partners to feeling appreciated due to a quick email response time and having a laugh while quickly collecting your costume.
“Seductive yet Sinister!” “Sensual yet Savage!”
Once our patrons hit the road, we expect that 80% of our work is done and all that’s left to do is to have a good time. Patrons will be able to enjoy our amenities such as our glam zone and relaxation tents. Thus completing our unique culturally inspired road experience.
For 2019, which DJs will be on the road?
This year, we will have DJ Private Ryan, Back to Basics, Tony X, DJ Rusty G, DJ Mystro and DJ Jim Brown
What designers have you worked with?
We work with both local and international designers, this year, we worked with Douglas John. Our design team has been vital, ensuring quality and innovative designs year after year.
This is Party People’s fifth year, what are you hoping to provide patrons this year?
This year we ARE “Seductive yet Sinister!” “Sensual yet Savage!”
Party People Mas, the band with the most vibes, is ready to unleash your Beautiful Beast!
Our theme is built on stunningly beautiful women from various folklores across selected cultures who use their feminine wiles to lure unsuspecting men to their doom. We are encouraging patrons to take a walk on the wild side, embrace your sinister side and unleash the beautiful beast inside of you.
Where can patrons find more information?
Check out our website and ask yourself: which seductress are you?
Party People Mas welcomes you to join us as we surrender to the sexy side of the dark as we celebrate our 5th Anniversary. Without giving things away, we can promise this will be one for the books. You can play with Party People at Bermuda Heroes Weekend (BHW) from June 14th, 2019 to June 17th, 2019
