Bajan night a blast

IT DIDN’T MATTER THE AGE, nationality or religion, the crowd which packed the environs at Surfside Restaurant & Bar in Holetown on Monday night had a great time.

They danced, sang, laughed and cheered as the sweet sounds of local music pervaded the historic St James town. It was all for the annual Holetown Festival’s Bajan Night concert under the theme Going Back In Time.

For an hour and a half, those sitting and the majority standing and huddled at various vantage points were entertained by some of Barbados’ very best.

Young Jamal Slocombe was welcomed with cheers as he opened the night with Shirley Stewart’s classic Walk Away From Love. He even treated the audience to some social commentary. (SDB Media)

It was hands in the air and dancing for many on Monday night.
