It was revival time for Crop Over revellers who flocked to the upscale Cin Cin restaurant on the West Coast last Tuesday for one of the new parties on the post-Crop Over Calendar, aptly named Revive.

Just a day after Grand Kadooment, New York-based organiser Jene Webster and his business partner OC Isaacs lured scores of party animals to the already popular event for the second successive year.

“We did not want to get complacent and do the same thing,” Webster told Social Scene and he outdid himself, improving on the inaugural 2017 presentation of the fete, which had an international cast of DJs. The response this time around, he said, was beyond all expectations.

 This year there were eight artistes and more DJs than last year.

The music has hardly died down and Webster is already planning for next year and more visiting performers to add to the line-up of Barbadian artistes.

His rationale is: “After Kadooment Day, some Bajans would like to experience something apart from calypso.” (GC)
