Added 11 October 2017

The temperature wasn’t the only thing that was hot on Saturday afternoon at Daquiri Beach in Bay Street, St Michael.

Soca queen Alison Hinds turned up the heat for more than 40 minutes, showing the scores of patrons attending the Barbados Jazz Excursion event at Pirate’s Cove just how to party and have a really good time not only at Crop Over or seasonal fetes, but whenever good music was played.

From the time the Cultural Ambassador came on stage, women wearing swimsuits and men in their beach pants left where they were and came by to get a closer view.

Starting with Bumpers Rolling and ending with Togetherness, Hinds sang hit after hit. The set included a total of 15 songs she had done either as a soloist or with the band Square One, such as Born Wit’ It, Grind It, Brace And Wine, Carnival Baby, Roll It Gal, Single, Faluma, Ragamuffin, Iron Bazodee and Ride Me Riddim.
