Our Team

Team Masanova

We are a team made up of close knit family and friends.

Our heritage between us spreads across the Caribbean and the UK; Grenada, St Lucia & Jamaica to name a few. 

Our inspiration stems from our unique heritage, culture and upbringing. Together we bring a fusion of Caribbean and UK influences through our forward thinking designs. 


With over 30 years of experience between us we come together with our talent & expertise; from costume designers, to HR Management, Music DJ's and Web/Media designers to bring our passion for all things carnival alive and to the road for the first time at Notting Hill Carnival 2019!

Not afraid to push the boundaries. Not afraid to be different. Not afraid to be daring. Not afraid to be who we are. We have no creative limitations.

                    THIS IS MASANOVA

Who are Team Masanova?

First and foremost - the one who's dream it is to have a band on the road.

Wayne (Band Manager) - originally West Indian Connection Sound' front man.

"I've always wanted a band of my own, and to see it becoming a reality is a dream come true!"

Sandra, Wayne's other half (Management Team) and passionate to help his dream become a reality.

"It's great to be part of a team that's full ah vibes and just want to have fun. I grew up in a country where carnival is part of you, so being involved in Team Masanova is like the icing on the cake. We are all unique in our own ways and working with such talented individuals is what makes us who we are. I cannot wait to see what the future holds.... 

One team, one band, family, friends and fun = mas"

Crystal, Wayne's Sister & Designer of Spice (aka CrystalzDesignz) - "It's given me the opportunity to do something I have always wanted too... create a costume line for Notting Hill Carnival! I was so overwhelmed seeing my designs at the band launch on a catwalk!

Vincent, Wayne's Cousin

"I love being part of the Masanova Team, as an official Masanova DJ. I feed off the vibes from the mas band and designers, it makes me more creative and energetic when playing to the masses."

Jodie, Friend & Designer of Gaga (aka Confident Curves) "I love being part of the Masanova Team. We're a group of individuals who each bring different dynamics and intend to bring nothing but fun and friendly vibes to the roads of Notting Hill. I'm so excited to be part of a well organised group and showcase my vision through costume. Masanova isn't just a team it's a family." 


Kim, Wayne's cousin. (Management Team & Content Designer) - "Being a part of this band has given me the opportunity to unleash my creativity in ways I didn't think I could... from the first initial design ideas to being part of the band launch... It's great to be a part of a team with such talent and positive energy!"
