For over 30 years, the name SuperBlue has been respected, revered by fellow calypso and soca artistes and even as the winds of change continue to blow, Super is still the man. His songs, Ethel, Barbara, Lara, Soca Baptist, Flag Party and countless other hit soca tracks have cemented Austin “SuperBlue” Lyons’ name in Soca’s Hall of Fame, if there ever was one. In 2018, he will be honoured in a very special way.

Randy Glasgow Productions will honour the Point Fortin icon on February 17, 2018 with a Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution to the culture of T&T.

“The award will be presented at the Calypso & Comedy Cool Down Concert we’re hosting at Napa in Port-of-Spain, next year,” said Glasgow. He said Super will also be a featured act at the annual Ladies Night Out Mega Concert set to be held on February 26, also in Port-of-Spain. This year, Glasgow and his hard working team delivered a tributary accolade to Dil-e-Nadan’s Raymond Ramnarine at the annual Chutney Brass Festival in South Trinidad. This year the award was presented by President Anthony Carmona, and Glasgow says the president has once again been invited to be a focal part of this auspicious event in 2018.

Fifteen years ago, Randy Glasgow Productions, one of T&T’s most renowned promotional entities, hosted its very first event. That event was Super Blue in Concert. In 2018, CEO of the company that has since delivered major events such as Ladies Night Out and the Chutney Brass Festival, Randy Glasgow, says Super will be honoured, as he should be.

“His music has stood the test of time,” said Glasgow this week. “His performances have told a story of this country’s vibrancy and more than that, every bit of SuperBlue’s exhilarating stage shows have been the blue print for much of what is seen when soca stars such as Machel Montano, Bunji Garlin, Super’s daughter, Fay Ann Lyons and many others, mount stages around the world today.”

The Carnival 2018 season fast approaching, all systems are in place for major surprises and top-notch events by Randy Glasgow Productions. Said Glasgow: “We want everyone to come out to our events and walk away completely satisfied. Honouring the greats is truly a necessary part of our shows.

“Without these legendary men and women who paved the way for the fresh, new faces and voices we’re enjoying today, where would we be? ” asked Glasgow.

The promoter says SuperBlue’s tribute is simply the second of many to come from his outfit.
