ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- The rivalry sometimes seen among local bands was put aside as band members united to give their fans a grand time at the event dubbed ‘Bands to Mek Dem Dance’ at the Tortola Pier Park on April 16, 2016.

The bands, all confirmed for Emancipation Festival Jouvert later this year, were VIBE, Showtime, OMG, and Contra Band.

Many persons responded to the event to support their favourite bands, dance or just listen to the entertainers perform.

It was also good to see at the end of the show many of the band members took to the stage at the same time in a show of unity.

“This was a great event for the local bands, the support was great as people flocked the pier park to hear the bands showcase their songs. We have a lot of talent in the BVI, and we felt this showcase brought unity as several of the band's singers took the stage at the same time at the end,” according to a statement from Five Star Promotions, who held the show in collaboration with Myett's Chill Zone.

According to the promoters, the event was violent free “and people really enjoyed themselves. We want to say thanks to the Tortola Pier Park for giving us and the young people the opportunity to show they cherish the new facility, as at the end of the night the venue was back to normal and no damages.”

“This event made me feel proud to be a BVIslander as I heard these bands singing their heart out. The fans are calling for part 2 so sometime before festival we will see what's possible,” a member of Five Star Promotions stated.
