St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN); The Friday night acts for the 21st anniversary of the St. Kitts Music Festival did not disappoint, rocking fans right down until almost 5am.
While the Goo Goo dolls thrilled festival fans, and the locals acts represented well, the dancehall and reggae acts stole the show.
Artiste Selection Committee Head Jonel Powel gave his opinion of night two of the festival:
“Last night was truly, truly incredible. When you look at the performance from our local acts- first time acts like Scratchi Bamma and Ras Idren- then we had Shabba Ranks, first time ever in St. Kitts-Nevis; the Goo Goo Dolls, I mean, considered “where you going with the Goo Goo Dolls in St. Kitts?” and last night they put on a performance which proved that you have trust your Music Festival Committee when we say we’re going to bring quality acts.
“Mavado brought down the curtains last night, well this morning, minutes to 5(am); a bit later than we expected but we appreciated it.
“Forgive me for saying it but Third World put on an epic performance, and if I may say one of the best performances I’ve seen over the 21 years of the Music Festival. That is what it’s all about; that is why we’re here.”
Saturday, the final night of the festival is expected to be equally entertaining with a line-up featuring V. Bozeman, Phyllisia Ross, Ed Robinson, Credence Clearwater Revisited, Briannagh D, K Michelle, and Jah Cure.
Powell: “We are now focusing on the third and final night and we’re expecting nothing less when you look at the quality of artistes that we have lined up, it’s going to be amazing.”
