Band Launch Review: Unleash - D'Junction Mas

First let me apologize for this really late post. My job has NO chill these days. I would like to thank D'Junction Mas for allowing us access to their costumes before presentation so that we could get some close ups. It's not always that bands are receptive to allowing access prior to showing

D'Junction presented "Unleash" at the Entertainment Warehouse and they unleashed a WHOLE SET of sexiness. I love that the costumes have so many intricate details. I love that, in my opinion they have gone another step forward than their debut year in design and intricate details. One thing for sure is that there is a lot of sexiness. The options for cover is SLIM to none.

By now you would have seen most the costumes. If, for some reason you have not, check out our facebook page of some close ups: D'Junction Costumes

Their 2014 presentation consists of 6 sections. 5 made by returning designer Rawle Permanand and another section by Clivia of Carnivaldiva.

Frontline & Backline

I am very pleased with D'Junction Mas' presentation this year. I think for their 2nd year they have really shown improvement in their design concept. After Saturday's presentation I walked away totally excited about Savage Beauty Frontline but now over the week Cobra frontline is also really catching my eye. AND I AM NOT A FRONTLINE GIRL!

Costume prices start at $280 and run up to $450. Djunction is an all inclusive band with a host of djs.

I see my top 10 costumes for the season  post being a difficult one with many other bands still to launch.

Band Highlight: Euphoria Mas - Let's Dance

We were unable to physically attend Euphoria's launch as we had to head out of the country quickly. Thanks to our friends at Official Vibes who very nicely shared their pics with us.

The thing I love though about Euphoria is their organization. I cannot vouch for the on the road experience as I have not played with them, but if their on road experience is anything like their band launch presentation to on site registration then I see no worries there. Euphoria ALWAYS has their website up and ready to go coinciding with their launch so we were not left to wonder about costumes.

Euphoria is a feteing band so this year's presentation falls aptly in their area. With costumes designed by Richard and Anthony, it was no surprise that after the launch there was a sold out section.

They are presenting Let's Dance for Miami Carnival 2014 with 6 sections.

Sweet Soca: (Sold out)



Sexy Samba






Swan Lake



Cabaret: (Sold Out)







Each sections has a male costume. Prices for Euphoria costumes range from $230 or backline to $380 for Frontline costumes. Males are $195.

My favorite costume, after much back and forth is Flamenco frontline. I love love love the bra detail on that costume. Swan Lake and Sweet Soca frontlines are not far behind.

I'm very glad that Euphoria as kept their standard up as it relates to costume and design and expect them to continue to grow as a brand and a band in Miami.

They are also doing double duty since they also have a J'ouvert band this year dubbed "Dutty Pleasures". Anyone who registers to play "pretty mas" and also play with them for j'ouvert will get a discount.
