Promoters Sunnation launched its Tabanca Tuesdays party series for the 2018 carnival season at Fiction Nightclub in St Andrew on January 30. The occasion saw the announcement that the venue would be the new home for the series.

“Tabanca is the wanting, the desire, and feel for carnival, either before or when it's just finished,” Oliver McIntosh, a director of Sunnation said.

“This is the first time we've held it in a nightclub and the vibes is wild. It's midnight and people are still walking in. We're expecting to do this again. However, when we reach our big one, Pan versus DJ, that has to be outdoors,” he said.

There will also be four stagings this year spread across February through July.

Over the years, Tabanca Tuesdays was held at various Corporate Area venues, including CPJ parking lot, Constant Spring Golf Club and @ Twenty Three in New Kingston.

“Tabanca Tuesdays introduces people to the current music leading up towards carnival so by the time they reach Sunrise Breakfast Party everyone knows all of the big tunes from Trinidad,” McIntosh explained.

According to McIntosh, soca fans wanting more Tabanca have made the series successful so far.

Tabanca Tuesdays was started about four years ago as a lead-in to their signature event, Sunrise Breakfast Party, which this year, will be held on April 7.
