Boyz’s homage to Gods and Goddesses
CAMPUSBOYZ will take a mythological wine down Spring Garden this Kadooment when more than 900 gods and goddesses take to the road.
The band, titled Of Gods and Goddesses, is divided into five sections: Japanese Gods of Winter, Native American Gods of Creation, Greek Gods of The Sea, Hawaiian Gods of Fire and Roman Gods of Vegetation.
Each of them depicts a different god or goddess. Greek gods of the sea gives the ladies a choice of two designs to strut their stuff.
Band leader Aundrea Wharton said CampusBoyz had maintained its pricing structure.
“In the face of strict pricing and VAT, and inflation and gas, and everything going up, we’ve managed somehow to keep our prices between the range of $380 to $420, which I find is very good and I’m sure our revellers as well will be very happy,” he said.
The band house, located at Howell’s X Road, St Michael (obliquely opposite the Barbados Community College), is fittingly called Mount Olympus and the various sections within it have been named for gods and goddesses as well.
CampusBoyz‘ band fetes kick off tomorrow at Mount Olympus with Ignition at 7 p.m. The Sunday parties continue every week.
Mount Olympus opens for registration and other business on June 8 from noon to 9 p.m.
The second band house opens at the Student Guild at the University of the West Indies on June 15. The hours are 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
One of the new features this year is the Crop-Over Fair, where bandleaders can showcase their stuff and people can register.
There will also be the usual attractions including jumping tent, food, drink and entertainment. This takes place on June 28 at the band house.
