Band launch season is in full swing this weekend, with three virtual launches last night from LUX, Colorz Entertainment and Krave the Band and a cooler fete and launch party tomorrow, Sunday, from Xhosa Barbados.
Virtual launches are a definite trend for 2019. Of the five bands that have launched so far – Khepri Kulture, Zulu International, LUX, Colorz and Krave – only one band has gone the traditional route of having a launch party/fete.
Of the announced upcoming launches – the aforementioned Xhosa, Blue Box Cart and Betty West on April 28th and Baje International on May 4th – three will be launch parties/fetes (Baje has not yet announced what form their launch will take).
LUX and Colorz kicked things off last night with their launches at 7:00 PM, presenting their costumes for Outlaws: The Pirate Era and Eden, respectively.
LUX is offering costumes in three sections – Captain Red Legs, Rebellion and The Secrets of Sam Lord – and an additional guest section, Stede Bonnet. Female costumes range from $319 USD to $995 USD and male costumes from $299 USD to $425 USD.
Coloz has seven sections – Animal Kingdom, Genesis, Heaven, Sun & Soil, Flora, Forbidden Fruit and Serpent – with prices for female costumes ranging from $275 USD/$550 BBD to $900 USD/$1800 BBD.
Krave launched one hour later, at 8:00 PM, and their theme for 2019 is “The Gilded Menageriè.” Under this theme, the band has eight sections entitled Phoenix, Maraja, Valkyrie, Garuda, Eden, Enchantress, Feywild and Golden Kai. Krave’s prices are not publicly listed.
