About Us

'Saga Boy' - Noun. Pronunciation - 'Sa-ga Boy' Definition - A cool, well dressed Dandy, a Caribbean Casanova.

Soca Saga Boys was formed in 1993 by its founding member 'Saga Boy' Tony Cumberbatch (RIP). 'Saga Boy' Tony's vision was not only to promote Soca music in the UK, but to take the Sound System to new audiences around the world. His aim was to let the whole world experience the energy, vibe & passion in Soca, Carnival & Mas.

Highlights of our History

2014:Soca Saga Boys celebrates both their 21st Anniversary for participating in the Notting Hill Carnival and the 50th anniversary of Notting Hill Carnival itself. Later on that year they won an award for Best Music Played runners up at Hackney One Carnival 2014.

2010: Saga Boys Mas Band won first place on Carnival Monday at Notting Hill Carnival 2010 for their theme - Purple Reign.

2008: Our tour in Germany gave us the fortunate oppportunity to play alongside two famous Soca artists Bunji Garlin and Faye-Ann Lyons .

2007: It was the first time Soca Saga Boys played Mas in their own right at London's infamous Notting Hill Carnival. This might seem strange but the fact is that for over 20 years the Saga Boys Sound System has been partnered with other Mas Bands for Notting Hill Carnival & as a result the Saga Boys Mas section took a back seat.

Soca Saga Boys are known for injecting a fun & vibrant Carnival atmosphere every time they fete. They are much more than just a few Soca DJs with a Sound System, they are a tight family united in Soca working together to spread the Caribbean Carnival Culture.

    "I played with Soca Saga Boys in 2011, their theme was 'Precious Gems of The East' I played on a Monday in their band's costume. I can honestly say I had a really good time, the music was really good no repeats of the same songs - good vibes - and very versatile - nice people (I had the advantage of knowing a few people before hand) but very friendly environment for first time masqueraders, "
