CANE GARDEN BAY, Tortola, VI- Beginning just about 1:15 AM and ending after 3:00 AM on Sunday March 5, 2017, night two of the BVI Spring Fest, dubbed “90s Throw Back night”, saw four major acts rocking the modest crowd at Cane Garden Bay, as they went back in time with hits of yesteryear.

The fest, which is in its third year, began on Friday March 3 and will end on Sunday March 5, 2017.

Performances

Grammy Winning Artist of the USA, Mya, known for hits like “Case of the Ex”, “My Love is Like…Wo”, “Lady Marmalade”, “Best of Me”, “Girls Dem Sugar”, and “Take Me There,” entertained the crowd with other songs like “Falling in love again”, and also included songs from Sean Paul- “I’m still in love with you.”

Mya even invited a recently engaged couple to the stage, serenading them with “I’m lost without you” from Robin Thicke.

B’More holds his own

Local star B’More came on with his usual hyped performance, delivering his two recent songs of “Million Miles” and “What the world needs” and some R & B in the mix.

International Reggae artist Wayne Wonder followed with his stellar show, belting tunes “Bounce Along”, “I Still Believe”, “Saddest Day of My Life”, “Bonafide Love (I Don’t Know Why)”, “Anything Goes”, “Searching”, “Joy Ride”, and “Watching You.”

Wayne Wonder also performed “If I ever fall in love again” with Mya and rocked the crowd, even more, when he came down to dance with the ladies with his “No letting Go” track.

The final act was internationally acclaimed The Onyan Effect Band, which brought the curtain down on night two.

Background entertainment came from DJ Avalanche.

Following the show last night, many expressed their overall satisfaction, lamenting that many more should have showed up to support, what was easily a major show with an international appeal.

The BVI Spring Fest, seen as the new alternative to BVI Music Festival, wraps up this evening with a beach wet fete featuring a variety of Virgin Islands bands, namely Kylo & the Stylee Band, BDJ, Shaw HP, BUGZBUGS, OMG and DJ Mac Milli.

    I'm off island. That's why I asked. Bought like 30 tickets, hoping to win but most importantly to support the cause. My one problem is the raffle should have been held where they had their tent up every day in town selling tickets... Thats it for me with.

    Had about 120 ppl. I couldnt believe it as there was absolutely nothing else going on and it was a good lineup. I can only come to one conclusion and that is ppl really dont like the promoter. Unbelievable.

    When will they learn that not everybody want to drive to CGB to be eaten by the sand flies. It would have been more succesful if it was kept at the festival grounds or some other central location

      And not only that, not everyone cared to view that line up (more of the same). Whilst some other people would also rather go overseas, do other things and engage with other people. I recommend that when these promoters bring artists make sure they are the ones that will appeal to a massive crowd to generate a profit that will more than suffice. Oh, and a change in venue should be looked into as well.

    If Steve started this thing earlier and not charge 40.00 at the gate it might have been a little more successful. Onyan played for about 15mins. That makes no zense. Now here it is Sunday night and once again he started late. Poor planning

    The way we use to plan things 15, 20, 25 yrs ago, those style of planning don't work no more....We have to adopt a new kind OF planning style and strategy... Planning and organizing is not for everyone. .There is a guy who works for Tico, was the event organizer for BVI consortium I was a member we were put together to assist in the Haiti r earth quake relief assistance. He is pretty good... SSurprise I don't see him or hear about him helping out in some oI These Festivals and events. Good talent. He just disappear in thin air.

    There were other events clashing with it such as the gospel concert and the other fund rasising dinner by VIP and the usual activities on a weekend. I was there and no sand flies bit me, it was really nice but I think people need to appreciate their own and come support. Steve is making an effort to make something happen, I think people should come out since this is a lot of money being invested to bring all these major acts.

    If steve say he tired and stop, then what all of all you going to say? never miss the water till the well run dry.
