The Dream Team Carnival Committee was formed in July 2005 as a special events group to represent the former Poison masquerade band at Carnival related events outside of Carnival. The DREAM TEAM group comprised leaders of private sections within Poison and was led by the ever enthusiastic Paul Singh, former Poison logistics and road administrative manager/co-coordinator. Paul's twelve successfully productive years at Poison, working directly with bandleader Michael Headley gave him admirably valuable experience in band administration on the road, which is now a great asset for DREAM TEAM
When the decision was taken by Michael Headley to voluntarily dissolve Poison, Paul saw this as the perfect opportunity to put his experience to work by forming a band with one of his main purposes being to provide masqueraders, onlookers and sponsors with total justifiable needs and wants for total enjoyment on the road on both Carnival days". In June 2006 DREAM TEAM CARNIVAL the band was formed. Paul and fellow executive members who together have a wealth of over 50 years experience in Carnival costume design, production, and on the road management, started the task of putting the band together.
DREAM TEAM’S first six years presentation "RHYTHMNATION", “BEJEWELED”, “ONE” “GEMS OF THE WORLD” “THE ART OF DANCE” and " UNTAMED" were astounding successes. Masqueraders responded positively to the "ambience" created by the DREAM TEAM CREW on the road for both Carnival days. Security was described by very many masqueraders as par excellent. Music was memorably enjoyable, while DREAM TEAM’S food and drink services ran very smoothly. The mobile washroom services remained with the band right to the end. Overall customer satisfaction was very high considering the expected glitches that normally accompany first time bands.
The success of 2007 , 2008, 2009 ,2010, 2011 and 2012 gave the Dream Team Carnival Committee the confidence to approach 2013 with even more vigor and optimism. Although DREAM TEAM’S “FLASBACK” 2013 presentation will embrace a larger following than our previous years, the Dream Team Crew will be cautious about allowing the band to exceed our planned numerical limitations in order to maintain perfect enjoyment with comfort and safety being our key initiatives, an historic fact being that bands over certain amounts of masqueraders become somewhat unmanageable on the road. A decision was taken to put a limit to the sizes of all Dream Team sections, to allow better quality control, placement of music, and overall organization for guaranteed masqueraders’ satisfaction.
Dream Team Section Leaders also contribute to the success of the band in other ways as they are all professionals in other areas of culture and entertainment. This unique make up of focused and ambitious members all contribute to the steady and positive growth of the band. Dream Team Carnival can now be considered as one of the fastest growing and most exciting Carnival band on the streets of Port of Spain.
Our masquerader base is made up of mostly young energetic, focused persons between ages 17 years and 35 years old so we plan and present our band to satisfy this market. Our disc jockeys and performers also fall within that bracket. Dream Team Carnival competes in the Large Band category and although we have won countless prizes during our existence, our most satisfying was 3rd place in the large category at the Downtown Carnival Competition in 2011 and "BAND OF THE DAY" in 2007.
Dream Team Carnival is a progressive band that is continuously seeking and employing new and strategic ways to deliver the most complete and satisfying experience for our masqueraders. The success of our attempts can be seen in the steady rise in the size of the band year after year. With these and many other excellent initiatives continuously being processed, DREAM TEAM remains completely committed to ensuring an impressionable contribution to T&T Carnival 2K13 and beyond!!
