‘We jamming still’ in the rain

By Darcel Choy Friday, February 17 2017

THIS year’s soca anthem by MX Prime and the Ultimate Rejects, Full Extreme, with the catchphrase “we jammin’ still” proved to be true at Central Bank 17, the premier all-inclusive held last Saturday, as during their performance, the crowd continued to jam and wave even as it began to rain.

It was during the encore performance of their Carnival hit when the rains came and MX Prime sang, “the rain could fall down, we jammin still” and they did. It was the perfect way to end the night that was packed with great entertainment and a lot of premium food and drinks.

The party began at 7 pm at the Eric Williams Plaza, Port-of-Spain, where before the live entertainment got underway, patrons explored the venue which offered a wide variety of good food. The ever popular horse tent returned this year surprising many newcomers to the Central Bank experience. The options were stewed, jerk and curried horse meat and it was obvious that many people enjoyed it as there was always a long line.

For the less adventurous, patrons had the option of jerk chicken, bake and shark, chicken and shrimp kebabs, corn soup, and chicken and shrimp Alfredo and also vegan options.

The feted added a shaved ice tent, which many loved. As for the drinks, there were traditional bars as well as a Belvedere Vodka bar.

Angostura also had a Mai Tai bar where patrons were treated to a variety of cocktails.

Starting off the entertainment was Roy Cape All Stars with Blaxx, Ricardo Drue and Tizzy belting out their hit tunes. Joining them on stage was Teddyson John and Voice whose performances really pleased the hyped crowd.

Dil-E-Nadan was next and the energetic performance started with Raymond Ramnarine and Omardath Maharaj’s 2017 Chutney Soca hit, Ramsingh.

Their set included popular soca hits including Marvay’s Know The Face, Orlando Octave’s Single and Ultimate Rejects’ Full Extreme.

At about 12.35 am Kes The Band took the stage. Those who were at the various food tents and bars rushed to the front to enjoy the performance.

Partygoers were treated to performances of Incredible, Ramp Up and People.

Joining the band later was Nailah Blackman who sang the hit ‘Workout’ with Kees Dieffenthaller.

Soon after, Kernal Roberts came on to sing Shake, a collaboration with Kees. During his performance, Kernal said this year made it 17 years since his father’s, Lord Kitchener (Aldwyn Roberts), passing and paid tribute to the legend by singing a few of his songs which everyone loved.

Kes The Band ended its performance at about 1.30 am followed by DJ Private Ryan.

While many left at that time, those who remained were treated to performances by Sekon Sta with his song Kings and Queens, and then Ultimate Rejects.
