Soca Frenzy, The concert, The Christmas Edition.
Last Soca Frenzy of the year and it has definitely been a great year for the Frenzy team. We all knew this was going to be the big one, the line up was phenomenal and this was reflected by the crowd turning out in their numbers ready to get on bad. Flags and rags galore it was like, looking at a moving atlas at one point. Trinidad, St Lucia, Barbados, Grenada, Jamaica, Montserrat, St Vincent, Germany, Holland this is not an exhausted list, but just naming few. Everyone represented their country to the fullest and should be proud. The Caribbean and the rest of the world united (jump and let them see love and unity, one big family, togetherness).
It was another ram jam affair, the usual resident DJ’s had the crowd warmed up nicely the vibes inside was intense you could feel the anticipation in the air ready for the first artist to perform.
Triniboi Joocie, Trinidadian born UK living artiste, known for his vibrant performances and masses of energy gave the Frenzy goers a number of big tunes from ‘Party Anthem’ to ‘Go Down’. Triniboi Joocie warmed up the crowd by getting the energy levels high and then jumping into the crowd to perform, setting a high platform for the following acts.
The next artist to perform was Pumpa from the US Virgin Islands, known for his versatility he has a number of big tunes from ‘Massage’ to ‘Release The Beast’. Pumpa braced the stage with his vibe, he engaged the crowd with his dancing as well as inviting individuals from different country’s to represent and dance on the stage.
Soca Kartel (Mikey and Blood), both born in Barbados, known for their combined energy and selection of tunes, from “Plumber” to “Roll it” they had the crowd singing along like it was karaoke. They also had a cameo performance from the UK’s MLM Dancers. Which was an added twist which I believe enhanced their performance on the night.
Mr Killa, Grenadian born, known for his catchy lyrics and sing along tunes from ‘Swing It Away’ to ‘Rolly Polly’. Probably the most anticipated artist on the night and he definitely delivered. Scala had energy and good vibes but as soon as Mr Killa touched the stage the venue erupted. His stage presence was immense, he had the crowd engaged with his dancing. His witty banter had the crowd doubled over with laughter, and his overall performance of his 2013 hit song ‘Rolly Polly’ destroyed Frenzy. Words can’t describe,you had to be there to capture the full experience.
All artist performed and engaged the crowd 100%, you definitely got your money’s worth and then sum, this concert will be hot topic for a good while and if you missed this Frenzy you missed a night to remember.
