And this year, the Bronx-based Gems of the Caribbean masquerade band, representing St. Kitts-Nevis, and Brooklyn’s Belizean Blue Dream mas band’s “Temptation Island” theme, representing Belize, will be among the groups along the Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, parade route on Labor Day, Sept. 5.
“This year the costumes are more beautiful and the music will be more hyped than ever before,” said bandleader Jefroy Morrishaw of DJ Morrishaw Productions, which is presenting Gems of the Caribbean with co-bandleader Delia Fahie. The 2016 effort is being produced in conjunction with Censational Treasures, the St. Kitts Tourism Authority and ZIZ radio and television stations, the national broadcasting corporation of St. Kitts-Nevis.
The group’s costumes are on display at its Bronx mas camp, 1184 Grant Ave., which has been hosting fund-raisers for the group. For information, visit www.djmorrishaw.com, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (917) 597-0195.
