Tristar Entertainment, the powerhouse behind the LIME title-sponsored series promises MontegoBay a real treat. Marvin Lawrence, one of the three directors of Tristar Entertainment, said that hisgroup was in fact partnering with Vegas Flamingo to make the event a reality.
“We are partnering with the Vegas Flamingo team, and one of the most significant things to note is that this event is completly free,” Lawrence remarked.
Yes. 100 percent, absolutely free.
Lawrence said that the partnership is necessary to ensure that Montegonians got a true taste ofcarnival which is main focus of the LIME All Island Carnival. This is a vision shared by theVegas Flamingo lounge.
“Alison Hinds embodies the spirit of carnival so it is only fitting that we would have her performon the LIME All-Island Carnival stage. And where better to have her, but in the beautiful city ofMontego Bay and at the Vegas Flamingo gaming lounge,” he gushed.
Specifically, patrons will gather on the 40,000 square foot rooftop space of the Vegas Flamingo,overlooking the sparkling city.
Allison Hinds is the singer of the ubiquitously popular soca anthem “Roll It Gyal”. She is a mainstayin the world of soca music and will bring her special brand of entertainment to the event aptlydubbed “Socamania”.
The ‘big-bumper’ Hinds will share the stage with two other live acts. The legendary soca band,Byron Lee and the Dragonaires and wildly popular Tanto Blacks, a former Magnum Kings andQueens contestant.
