Was a priviledge to see him live & direct in the flesh doing what he does better than anyone else on the palnet!
Living legend!!  :salute:

Oh yeah Wendy Fitzwilliam was looking hot & 3 Canal rell vibes up the place & get on bad, performed jazzed up versions of two of their big hits "Good Morning Neighbour" & "Blue"!

The Folklore costumes were great and MOBO Award winning Yolanda Brown was wicked on the sax and we cyah leave out Etienne Charles musical director on the trumpet!! I think the drummer was Robert Bailey and yuh know he wicked, in fact all the musicians were brilliant!!!

Lara was there also in the VIP section, ah chat with him a bit & took a picture which I will put up on my facebook soon!
Trini actor Rudolph Walker O.B.E was also present in the VIP!

They also had a nice VIP party after the concert that went on until 1am but I had to dash off to go see the two Soca Queens Destra & Denise Belfon live on stage with full band at the Obsessive London concert which also took place on the same night!
