Both bands benefitted greatly from his vibe, work ethic and industry relationships.Vinny had wanted to have a mas band of his own for a while and reached out to Dwayne to see if they could create one together. Dwayne Huggins is a British born Trini. He’s a soca loving, carnivalholic who has been on the UK soca scene for over 20 years as a feter. In 2011 Dwayne started UK Soca Scene which is a popular online channel for all things soca related in the UK, Europe and beyond.Alongside his other projects (Tabanca Weekender, She Soca and Jambolassie) Dwayne decide that in 2016 the time was right to start a mas band.
