When it came to laid back and chillin’, no concert-goers performed it better than the crowd attending Bodden Town District Council’s Stress Free concert on Coe Wood Beach last Saturday night.
Whether it was the chill in the air or the relaxing and mesmerising feeling of cool breezes on the beach, the concert-goers mellowed in the starlit night.
Among the local bands were Stuart Wilson and Love Culture, and Bona Fide.
“I thought it was very generous of the Bodden Town District Council and MLAs to stage a show of this level for free,” said Wilson. “It was a great gesture of kindness on their part, especially ahead of the Christmas season and a wonderful way to get everyone in the spirit.
“This was the second free show put on by the BT District Council this year, which I thought was just a fabulous way of bringing the community together.”
The headliner was Jamaican reggae queen Tanya Stephens, known for hits including, It is a Pity, You Na Ready for Dis Yet, and These Streets. Her witty lyrics and analytical take on life and relationships, quickly catapulted the young girl from Kingston. Jamaica, into the stratosphere of reggae greats in the late ‘90s.
The stress free event seemed to live up to its billing.
