There will be 10 bands less than Crop Over 2017 hitting the road for Foreday Morning this year.

The National Cultural Foundation (NCF), which organizes the event indicated that last year there were some 47 bands playing mas in the mud, paint and powder, while this time around there are 37 bands registered.

That is a whopping 21-percent less bands taking to the streets for the night-time jump.

Asked about the reason for the decline, a representative from NCF said that the drop could be due to a number of reasons.
