It was Team Mikey’s night on Thursday at the Dockside Bar and Restaurant Tiami, in the Shallow Draught, as patrons filled the area for the Bacchanal Thursdays fete. ​The event, which doubled as a charity event with part of the proceeds going to the Team Mikey charity, featured live performances from soca giants Khiomal, Brett, Sanctuary, Ian Webster, Marzville, Mistah Dale and the duo of Blood and Mikey as Soca Kartel. The crowd partied as hit after hit was sung. Before hitting the stage, mighty Michael Mikey Mercer said his Pic-O-De-Crop social commentary song Time For We is about people helping people, which is exactly what [the] Team Mikey charity does, we help wherever possible,” Mikey said. “We go to children’s homes, senior citizens homes to just try to help wherever possible. We know things are hard so a little bit really goes a long way and we try to encourage Bajans to help as well, and that is what the song is about.” Mikey added that a few preparations had already been made for his participation in the three upcoming competitions. “When we did the songs we did the preparation as well so just in case we got through, we knew what we were doing, ’cause we really don’t like doing the last-minute thing,” he said. At the draw yesterday, Mikey pulled No. 2 in Sweet Soca and No. 5 in Party Monarch. Soka Kartel pulled No. 3. (SM)
