Three bands rocked the stage at the plaza by the Brick House for Rotary Central of Grand Cayman’s Music Extravaganza last Saturday.
An appreciative audience turned out to enjoy the live music, as well as to vie for draws of a $40,000 grand prize and 10 other prizes of $1,000 each.
Staged every year since 1995, the event is an evening of dancing, laughter and conversation in celebration of goodwill and good works in the community. Proceeds go toward supporting local charities.
Musical variety was served up by the Vagabonds, who gave a scintillating performance by all accounts. The band plays a range of styles and performs original songs, along with some more familiar material. Adding to the mix of talented bands in the lineup was perennial favourite Red, White and Blues, whose guitar theatrics and hot blues licks lit up the stage.
Rounding out the programmed was Sea N’ Bee, comprising husband and wife Chuck and Barrie Quappe. The crowd took to the dance floor, fully entertained by the band’s combination of tropical ballads and contemporary hits.
Ravi Kapoor, Rotary Central vice president and event coordinator, said, “Rotary Central has a long and well known history of serving the Cayman community. This annual gathering is among our best known and most popular events, and has through the years helped to raise a great deal of money for important local projects,”
The names of prize winners had not been released by Rotary Central by press time.
