Happy Hour At the Pines

Up-and-coming local rap group D.L.S.
spent their happy hour time at the Pines Retirement Home recently.

The young people talked with
residents after donating much need supplies, such as toiletries, powder and
board games. The donations were purchased with proceeds from the group’s album

Group member Jasen Campbell said: “Spending
our time with the residents and donating these items meant a lot to us. The
older people in our society are our foundation builders and to be able to give
back to them made us feel like we are doing our part in the community.”

He added: “My grandmother has been
a resident for a little over a year now and after visiting her regularly, I began
to see more and more that there was a need for donations and I couldn’t help
but ask what my band mates and I could do to assist.”

Mr. Campbell said the group hoped
to continue their donations and spend time at the Pines, but also spread awareness
about how much help is needed.

D.L.S., which formed in 2006, consists
of four young Caymanians, all graduates of John Gray High School. Featuring one
female and three male performers, all are between the ages of 22 and 24. 

The group’s current album, “From
Down Yah”, is available at Funky Tangs and Winner’s Circle.
