Carrot Bay comes alive in pulsating Emancipation Festival send off! [Slideshow Included]

CARROT BAY, Tortola, VI – Sometimes the best is indeed saved for last, or so it seemed, as events in this year’s Emancipation Festival wound to a close last night, August 11, 2012 at the Carrot Bay Cultural Fiesta ground.

With a line-up featuring some of the most dynamic performers in the Caribbean, last night’s event presented entertainment as never before seen. Gazes were transfixed to the stage as artistes came in succession to wow the crowds.

Tripple Cay out of Dominica started things going with their track entitled “Shake” (not to be confused with Showtime’s track of a similar name), calling out to the Dominican segment of the crowd to represent their island.

It was then the turn of the Roy Cape All Star’s band to “Sound di Horn” as the group put on a more than hour long performance that belied the girth of the lead singer and only served to enhance his reputation as an evergreen and versatile performer.

He next introduced one of the main acts for the night’s performances, Gamal Doyle, aka Skinny Fabulous who hails from St Vincent and the Grenadines. Skinny, who claims to be 135lbs, delivered much more than his weight in gold; hits that is. While skilfully belting out some of his more famous songs to the crowd including the ever popular “6:30” and “Badder than Everybody” he managed to persuade a young lady from the crowd to give her impression of the 6:30 dance on stage, the crowd erupted in approval.

His performance was followed by this year’s Road March Kings shortly after. A presentation of the winning trophy was made on stage by Mr Trefor Grant, just prior to their performance. Showtime managed to continue where Skinny left off taking the crowd down a frenzied lane of vigorous dancing and shaking.

Other performances for the evening included local acts Jalena and Reema.

It will be an unforgettable night for all who were in attendance for many years to come.

    I thank god for the Carrot Bay fest for this is the only thing left for the indigenous people. Road Town and east end festival are run and control by down island people. Never seen more Jamaicans and Guyanese with boots in the Village in all my life. Everywhere you go, you see them, they have now, just about, completely taken over the BVI and they are even in our House of Council…shame shame on you locals...Here is now another St. Thomas
