Come Vincy Mas 2020, SVG Players International will be commemorating its 20th Anniversary as a Carnival Mas Band in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
SVG Players International holds the proud record of being one of the most successful Mas Band in St. Vincent and the Grenadines over the last two decades, winning seven Bands of the Year titles in addition to several Junior Bands of the Year. SVG Players has also distinguished itself in the large costume categories such as King, Queen, Junior King and Junior Queen of the Bands, along with being frequent winners of the Sections of the Bands competition.
The band has always strived to stay true to its aims and objectives by maintaining the authenticity of Vincy Mas and drawing on the creativity and homegrown skills of our designers and costume builders. While endeavoring not to succumb to the trends of importing disassembled ready-made costumes, we are cognizant of the various demographics that take part in our festivities and their changing tastes and preferences. As such, we have exercised enough flexibility to adjust accordingly to suit the market and the general evolution of carnival costumes.
For the 20th Anniversary year, the band will produce a Mas presentation entitled “Players Love”. This presentation of 10 Sections inclusive of 2 children Sections, will chronicle and depict in full colour and splendour, the successes of SVG Players International throughout the last twenty years and it promises to be our best presentation yet.
Stay tuned to the band’s Facebook page SVG Players International for further updates and costume displays.
