As is customary, De Nu Pub (Mas Camp) in Woodbrook, held the first of its two-day Best of the Best Calypso Show on Wednesday, where visiting nationals and foreigners were able to get a sample of what they may have missed during their short stay in this country.

Member of the accompanying band, Cummings and the Wailers, “Super Green”, as dubbed by MC Sprangalang, opened the night’s entertainment with “Whistle Soca Dance”. He tried getting members of the audience to whistle but for the most part, hardly a sound came from their lips.

Nevertheless the show went on with Alexander Kelly, a Trini living in the UK for decades, who sang two wonderfully composed calypsoes “The Grandmaster” and “Haiti”, and was lustily cheered for them.

Young Alana Sinnette, a finalist at the National Calypso Monarch competition last week was up next, and she did “In A State” and “I Love My Trinbago”, both 2012 compositions, before delivering her very popular “No Moral Authority”.

Even the foreigners in the audience were able to understand and relate to the latter song.

Comedic kaisonian Brown Boy (Knolly Brown) had the crowd chuckling to his “The Airport”, “Bacchanal Lawyer” and “Jack Portfolio”, before another 2013 finalist Eunice Peters did “None of the Above”, Singing Francine’s “Runaway” and “Call My Name”.

After intermission the 2012 National Calypso Monarch Duane O’Connor gave a spirited performance of “The Hunt Is On”, this year’s “I Don’t Take Them On”, and from the pen of the Mighty Duke (Kelvin Pope), the popular 1969 song, “One Foot Vesina”.

The night’s proceedings closed with kaiso heavy roller the Baron (Timothy Watkins) who gave the audience a number of his hits, among them, “We Are Having A Party”, “Feeling It”, “Say Say” and “Sweet Soca Man” before closing with “Help Me Make It Through the Night,” the Kris Kristofferson 1970 country music ballad, since Valentine’s Day was to be celebrated the following day.
