RC Jam 2011 a hit!

Young talent came out to impress at RC Jam this year.

Hundreds of patrons congregated on the grounds of the St Aloysius RC Boys’ Primary School for its annual RC Jam calypso competition held Thursday 30th June 2011. Eleven boys participated in this event. There were three independent segments in this year’s RC Jam Calypso competition namely; calypso, groovy and soca. This was done to give students an opportunity to enhance their skills with various forms of music which form part of our carnival. However the main emphasis is placed on calypso.
The participants in this year’s RC Jam Calypso competition were Mini Me, Protestor, Jhamali, Cave Man, Lil Nick, Litch, Mighty Red, DI, Mateo and the defending monarch Stinger. Ten of the participants took part in the calypso round, two in the groovy segment and five in the soca segment. They were backed up by the Take That All Stars lead by Dyson Imbert from the Royal St Lucia Police Band. The audience were well entertained by the artiste who put on spectacular performances. Patrons were also treated to performances from Invader, Teddison John, Alpha, Superman HD and Ricky T.
At the end of the competition, Mighty Red was awarded the prized for best Groovy, Lil Nick became the soca King and Stinger retained his title as RC Jam Calypso King 2011.
The school would like to take this opportunity to thank all the participants and their parents for their hard work and dedication. Also to the guest artiste who made a significant contribution to the standard of the event. The school extends its sincere gratitude to all those who saw it necessary to contribute and sponsor this event. Without them this event would not have been possible. Special mention must be made of the presenting sponsor DIGICEL. Other major sponsors include; 1st National Bank, Carro’s Kitchen, White Appache, Majorie’s Family Restaurant, Computer and Business Services Limited, Palace House, St Lucia Mortgage and Finance Company Limited, DBS, RCI, Blaming fm, Radio St. Lucia, Bank of St. Lucia, Sunshine Industries, Courts, SMJ Beverages, LUCELEC  and all Ex RC Boys’ who made contributions of cash or kind. The school also thanks the Soca Village International Tent, Take Over tent and the Ambassadors Calypso Tent for accommodating the participants at the tents.
In order for the artform to survive, the artform must be inculcated in our young people. Hence, the St Aloysius RC Boys’ Primary School hopes to continue grooming young men for the Calypso arena and making its contribution to St Lucia’s Carnival.
