Scala Frenzy
By Katie Segal
United Kingdom
Friday 8 June 2012 : 11:55 GMT

Tonight heralds the first ever performance in the UK from Claudette Peters, the Antiguan songstress extraordinaire. Much belated, and much anticipated, this performance will probably surprise those who haven’t come across her before, and delight those who have.  This diva has a powerful voice and stage presence, and a host of songs with which to illustrate that.

The fourth anniversary of Soca Frenzy, taking place at Scala, Kings Cross, will definitely prove the place to be on Friday 8th June 2012. Alongside Claudette and a host of DJs, will be the Bucket Man himself, Swappi, in full HD. So bring your bucket – but make sure it has a broad handle, so you can slip it over your arm and leave your hands free to clap (you’ll want to down all the rum first, obviously). There will also be some costumes for Notting Hill Carnival being displayed and modelled on the night, so if you’re thinking of playing mas, bring your gym pass and your cheque book.

Claudette has been one of Antigua’s most prominent artists for several years now, some of her hits being the eponymous Go Claudette Go, as well as Flaunt It, Mardi Gras, and Still in Love. Most Antiguans know all the words to these songs; you might well find yourself joining them soon.
