Every Band has a Carnival Queen. Together with the King of the Band, these two characters are the main creations of the Carnival performance and they are at the centre of any presentation.

The Queen of the Band for the last twenty years is Jennifer Regis.

"On Carnival day I am excited, nervous and I can’t wait to put on my costume and get on the road. I love it. As the Queen of the Band, I am the centre of attention. Everyone is looking at me. I am proud to be the Queen. It is difficult to explain the excitement of wearing a costume, dancing on the streets and enjoying yourself. I hope I will be Queen for a long time."
