Making Merry for 50 years
The Merrymen, one of Barbados’ best known groups internationally, are promising a night of surprises and nostalgia with their 50th anniversary show coming off at the Barbados Yacht Club on March 30.
The popular Barbadian group, which thrilled audiences in Barbados and in some of the world’s major cities for decades, will take to the stage to recapture some of the glory moments, drawing from a repertoire of over 300 songs.
Emile Straker, Robin Hunte, Chris Gibbs, Willie Kerr and Peter Roett plan to take patrons on a trip down memory lane, to be heightened with guest appearances by two of the original members of the group, Stephen Fields and Robert Foster.
There will also be guest appearances by Cassius Clay, Aubrey Choy, John Roett and others who shared the Merrymen’s stage during their long career.
The group’s musical adventure, which for many years thrilled crowds in Madison Square Garden, the Superdome and other venues where performances were sold out, will also be recaptured in a video to be shown during the night.
Emile Straker said it is going to be “a fun night”. (GC)
