The trip to Tortolla (BVI) for the 2nd of a 3 Show Summer Music Series hosted by Bayside Rhythms couldn’t have been any more perfect. Not only did Bayside Rhythms really lay out the red carpet, but the people of Tortolla showed us BIG Love as well! I know it was a little different for the people of the Caribbean to be treated to a rocked -out hip hop show, but after experiencing people of different races and musical tastes partying together, the show line-up  was well worth the risk! Not to mention all the people who made the event happen and all the interviews, radio (ZROD), and magazine press who got behind ‘The Roxx Boxx Experience and really showed the Caribbean what’s possible when you have an open mind and a lotta passion for music, culture and creativity. I think aside from the show and the days on the beach and boats, and sun, my favorite part was visiting a local highschool and talking with the kids in the music program. There’s a 16 year old femae bassplayer named Theaa who opened the show for me and with the help of Bayside Rhythms and a few generous people, we’re working to send her to Victor Wooten’s Bass/Nature Camp in July. To me, THAT’S what it’s ALL about! Rock on Tortolla, Rock on! Special Love to all the people who made this show happen, all the artists (Type of Toad, Hot Sauce, BMore, Dalan and Kamau etc), the workers who transformed the park into a live music park overnight, Nanny Cay, Mulligans Tortolla, EVERYBODY! Thanx. And yes, I’m serious about getting a spot there!
