The A Team is heading to British Virgin Islands next weekend to perform at the 60th Diamond Jubilee of the Emancipation Festival in Tortola.

Rising local band The A Team will take its much talked-about stage show on the road next weekend when The Aggregation is scheduled to first appear at the Road Town Festival Village Grounds on August 2.

It then makes an appearance at the Carrot Bay Festival Grounds on August 7 before wrapping up its three-leg tour on August 9 back at the Road Town Festival Grounds.

“It’s a huge opportunity for us to showcase what we can do to new audiences. We are ready to represent T&T and ourselves the best way we know how, with a memorable enjoyable show,” said the band’s manager Zarin Morean of the upcoming tour.

The A Team, which features an eclectic blend of experienced musicians from a wide background of musical genres, has quickly built a reputation for thrilling audiences with their dynamic musical sets which include jazz, pop, Latin, dance hall, soca and reggae.

The A Team frontline includes soca veteran Eddie Charles alongside dynamic Jazz vocalist Kerlene “Kerlz” Joseph and Tobago-born crooner Abbyshi Jackson.

The British Virgin Islands’ Emancipation Festival is a celebration of the slaves earning freedom on the islands in the 1800’s. 

The annual event features cultural displays, music, pageantry, a food fair, folklore presentations and a J’Ouvert street party.
