Mission/Profile


Band Leader Andrea Mercury, born on the island of Barbados started Socaholics as a t-shirt band in August of 2011, and after numerous requests from supporters to upgrade to costumes  she took their advice. With the help and direction of her designer Ansel "Mice" Niles Socaholics launched its first costume band. In August of 2016 her band won band of the year with ”Elements of Life” and the Kiddies bands placed second with "Where the Wild Things Are” - Updated 2016
