We're in a bit of a transitional period here at Trinidad Carnivals. This year has seen us attempt to provide more varied content to our followers. One way we have looked at doing this is through covering events which, while not Carnival-driven, are relevant to our spirit and interesting to our readers. So with that preamble out of the way, we are proud to announce that we have been given permission by Production One Ltd to cover Jazz Artists On The Greens 2016. This underrated open-air concert has developed a strong following over its 14 years in existence. But rather than tell their story for them, I will let them do the talking. (For more information, you can visit their website or their Facebook page). WHAT: The 14th annual edition of Jazz Artists on the Greens WHO: Production One Limited WHEN: Saturday 12th March 2016. Gates open from 3.30 p.m. Event start time: 5.00 p.m. WHERE: The Greens at Farm Road, St. Joseph (formally WASA Grounds) TICKETS: Early Bird Special offers a discounted price of $250.00 on all tickets booked and purchased by Carnival Tuesday. Regular Tickets priced at $300.00 will be available at Ticket Outlets from Ash Wednesday
“Come for the lime … Discover the Music!”Carnival 2016 is almost upon us, but even in the midst of the fete season, the anticipation and excitement for the fourteenth edition of the annual “Jazz Artists On The Greens” event continues to grow. “Yes, we know it’s Carnival time, but this season is very short and already people have been asking us about JAOTG 2016,” stated Rolf Doyle of the organizing committee. “So we wanted to let the general public, all our regular patrons and jazz and music lovers in general know that the early-bird special is on now, but once Carnival is over they would have to pay the normal ticket price to get in with no exceptions.” Scheduled to occur this year on March 12 at the spacious venue known as “The Greens” at Farm Road, St Joseph, “JAOTG” is set to thrill audiences with an exciting line-up of musicians and performers. Supplying the sensational soundtrack for this year’s event will be: guitarist, Dean Williams, pannist, Dane Gulston, Cuban trumpeter, Alexis Baro and the Alexis Baro Quintet, as well as Clifford Charles with Moricia Cagan and Jason “Fridge” Seecharan. Gates open at 3.30 pm with show-time starting at 5 pm. Early-bird tickets have just been released this week, but can only be obtained before Ash Wednesday. Thus, the hotline numbers and email address are being swarmed by interested parties and potential patrons.
