‘Worst’ year for Squires


Share post:

It was veteran bandleader Gwyneth Squires’ worst road masquerade in 27 years.
That’s mainly because several bad-behaved young people invaded her band, with the police having to eject them.
The complaints came in the wake of Squires’ being announced winner of the Large Band Of The Year, Most Colourful Large Band and Festival Designer Of The Year awards in yesterday’s 2012 Grand Kadooment.
“In my 27 years of bringing a band, I can honestly say yesterday was the worst ever. We had many problems going along the road,” Squires said.
