2014 Barbados Cropover Sweet Soca and Party Monarch Finalists

It was billed as two parties with thirty-six (36) Calypsonians on one explosive stage! The intermittent showers that sprinkled the night’s activities did nothing to damper the energy of the crowd – it did not disappoint.

In true Brewster’s Road style the party was still going with a crowd on hand in the dawning of the morning when the names of the eight (8) finalists plus one(1) reserve in each category were announced.

These finalists will face the reigning Sweet Soca and Party Monarchs on the MQI/98.1 Soca Royale stage at Bushy Park, St. Philip on Sunday, July 27.
