“This year’s show will be our biggest yet,”reveals Hector Carter, Director of Operations for CCB International, Inc. “We have the Caribbean’s best soca artists all performing on one stage for what is known as the largest outdoor soca concert in the USA.” CCB has promoted the annual show at the same venue for the past three years, starting in 2008 with headliner Machel Montano, and caters to a sold out crowd each year.

And the artists are also inviting everyone to come and show their true Caribbean and carnival spirit en masse. “I’ll be your present for Christmas in July,” states Aaron Fresh. “See you at Six Flags New Jersey where Team Fresh is the best!”
