ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- VIBE certainly stole the show and Christmas for both children and adults on December 19, 2015 when the band members organised two Christmas events under the theme ‘How VIBE Stole Christmas’.

The first event, which was for children 5-16 years of age, was held at the Bandstand in Long Bush. It was the first of its kind organised by the reigning Road March Champions and some 300 children were given gifts through kind donations from various businesses and ordinary members of the community.

“The event was well supported and appreciated by the kids and the members of the public that came out. They really enjoyed themselves with the entertainment that was provided and they really loved the gifts that they got,” commented band member of VIBE, Raul R. 'Jugo' Sprauve.

Of course VIBE did a performance to further hype up the activity.

“It was all possible by our sponsors. We are hoping to do bigger and better next year.”

And then there was the after-party for the adults at The Vault. This event was also well supported, according to Sprauve.

“We just want to thank the general public for coming out to both events and helping VIBE to ‘Steal Christmas.’”

‘Christmas VIBE’ to hit children @ RT bandstand this Saturday Dec 19, 2015

"Everyone enjoyed themselves at the party and everything last year but we just felt a need to do more," commented band member of VIBE, Raul R. 'Jugo' Sprauve on a Christmas event for children slated for the Bandstand in Long Bush on Saturday December 19, 2015.

The event, for children 5-16 years of age, and to be held under the theme 'How VIBE Stole Christmas Part I, will begin from 3pm and wrap up at 6pm.

"We have some gifts that we are going to be giving out to some three hundred kids on a first come first serve basis, Mr Sprauve said. 

The children will also be able to meet the man of the moment- Santa- and his helpers, ‘The Vibe Girls’.

VIBE will also make an appearance just to further get everyone into a high tempo Christmas mode.

Music will be provided by DJ Paid Fa and B'More, who recently released a compilation of Christmas songs. 

According to Mr Sprauve, the ‘VIBE’ has certainly caught on from last years as some sponsors, mostly ordinary persons from within the community, have come on board to ensure that the children benefit this year as well. “It’s basically the community helping the community as we just had regular people coming out and supporting the initiative.”

After the children would have had their fair share of fun and presents and gone home, the party will then ‘tun up’ at the Vault as it would be time for the adults to have their fun.

“It’s a 21 and over party and persons can just expect to have a great time with the wide selection of music from DJs as well as live performance from reigning Road March Champions, VIBE. We are going to have a grand time at part two of that event, as part one is for the kids.”
