It’s almost impossible to talk about soca music in Toronto without mentioning the name Dr. Jay de Soca Prince! Regarded as the nation’s top soca DJ, he originally hosted/produced the ground-breaking radio show Soca Therapy on FLOW 93-5 FM, which has since moved to a weekly spot on G987 FM. With an international audience and glowing reputation, not to mention production credits for some of the biggest names in the soca world, how could we nothave the soca music ambassador back for another DJ Skate Night?
He returns to The Natrel® Rink at Harbourfront Centre this Saturday for the third installment of Soca on Ice. If we’ve learned anything from the first two installments, the beats will be bumpin’ and the rink will be packed! This one-of-a-kind event, which also happens to be a part of Kuumba, is a great excuse to dust off those skates and hit the ice. Can’t skate? No problem! We offer lessons, too!
