Yesterday’s music lives on

Social Share

THE LARGE TURNOUT at the recently held Nostalgic Review concert at Divi Southwinds was a clear indication that the music of yesteryear still lives on and is appreciated by many in Barbados.
This was evident when musical icons like the Mighty Gabby, John King and the host himself, Tony Grazette carried those music lovers back in time with the sweets sounds of songs like This Magic Moment and Stand by Me, which kept the audience rocking and basking in the sweet sounds of these melodious songs.
Earlier in the second half, Mighty Gabby opened with two great classics Moon River and Summertime in which Gabby showed that he is a man of many talents.
This made way for an over hour-long performance by Grazette who has been performing for the past 54 years. He sang classic love songs, reggae and spouge with such numbers as Please Mr Bassman, Cherry and Solid as a rock. This show, which was also attended by MP Steve Blackett, was a treat for music lovers who came from all over the island.
Members of the audience danced to the sweets songs from supporting artistes were John King, Sandra Tull and others.
Emcee Kimberley Skeete also sang. (RL)
