From all indications it would seem like it is going to be a busy and interesting carnival season if numbers are anything to go by. Already five carnival bands have had their launches, with three doing so this past weekend. According to CDF officials, a record fifteen bands have registered to take part in this year’s Carnival celebrations, among them at least four new bands.

One of these new bands, Fantasy carnival band, held their grand launch “Fantasy Unveiled” on Thursday April 30th at the Pulse Night Club, Rodney bay. Earlier this month the band held a “soft” media launch, followed by a model search for ladies to become the “face of fantasy.” That event, the organizers say, proved very successful and on Thursday presented the models, draped in the bands costumes as well as the winner of the official title “Face of fantasy,” Latoya. Thursday’s event drew a large crowd consisting Pulse regulars as well as curious revelers still undecided as to their band of choice for 2009.

On the night, the band unveiled the six sections depicting their portrayal of “Majestic Caribbean.” The sections included Jewel of the forest (purple), Spring of life (blue), Secret of the rainforest (green), Riches of the land (black and gold), Kiss of the sun (orange) and Eruptive forces (red).

According to Charles Simon of Fantasy, the band is going with thetagline of “the best debut band for 2009.” “Revelers this year who associate themselves with us will be in for a real treat and a carnival experience which makes each person feel special,” he says. Source
