Major Players Inc.
Major Players Inc. is a non-profit cultural organization registered in the state of Tallahassee since 1999. This organization has been participating in Miami/Broward Carnival for more than two and a half decades producing both a junior carnival and an adult carnival masquerade bands. Major Players is known for their consistency and dedication throughout the years of performances.
What makes Major Players Inc. special: Historically speaking, out of the twenty-one (21) registered bands with the Miami Carnival, Major Players is responsible for giving birth to 7 prestigious bands and we are one of the four bands that are grandfathered into the Miami/Broward carnival. Major Players was the first carnival band to introduce a stage presentation and first organization to introduce cultural exchanges with other cultural groups from other islands. We always share cultural information by preserving the culture and our heritage. This is achieved through education, marketing, advertising, performances, presentation, technical support, capacity building, audience development, training, artist development and advocacy.
Major Players Inc. is a bono fide member of the South Florida Band Leader Association., (SFCBLA), a member of the Diaspora of Arts Coalition Inc., (DAC), and a member of Transforming America Through Interaction Inc., (TATI). We recently formed a sister organization called Major Players Cultural Arts Educational Development Center Inc. whose mission is tied into our cultural diversity through our rich and traditional culture of Trinidad and Tobago and the rest of our sister Islands of the Caribbean. Established in 1993 the organization serves as a voice for these entities.
For several years, Major Players has acquired the title of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in our adult and junior band of the year as well as the title of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in Jr. King, Queen and individual as well as in the adults’ category. We are continuing to use different strategies in marketing the band to a higher level.
