Joseph will receive a cultural send off with performances by the Laventille Rhythm Section, Superior, Stalin, Lydian Singers, Roy Cape All Stars, Brother Resistance and DJ Crosby.

Express Editor-at-Large Keith Smith will pay tribute to Joseph, while UNC-A co-leader Jack Warner is also scheduled to speak.

Representatives from the Ministry of Community Development, Culture and Gender Affairs; National Carnival Commission (NCC), Trinbago Unified Calypsonians Association (TUCO) and Pan Trinbago are expected to deliver greetings.

Joseph will be cremated in a private ceremony following the funeral service.
