ReThePublic: The Aftermath

Date: Saturday 22nd September 2007
Place: Little Carib Theater
Cost: $100 advance $150 at the door

Well for those of you who didn’t know, 3 Canal had a show for the Republic Day weekend called ReThePublic aka For The People and yours truly attended.

Is real years now I have been wanting to go to a 3 Canal show eh, but circumstances prevented me from doing so.
So this weekend I made up my mind that come hell or high water, I was going to the show.

Words cannot even begin to describe the wonderful intimacy of the venue or the vibe of the music.

While seating was provided it was hardly necessary, as quite a few people stood for the duration of the show as 3canal’s music propelled them to their feet

The show was opened by 4 year old Kayode Charles on the drum to “chase the jumbies” out of the place, yes I said 4 years old. The youngster was amazing.

Kayode made way for the cut and clear crew which is 3 Canal’s band, yes I said band. 3 Canal now has a band who will be accompanying them to WOMEX in Sevilla Spain.

After the band did a little intro, it was then that Wendell, Roger and Stanton graced the stage and opened up their set with Pure Vibes.

That definitely set the tone for the show and it was really pure vibes for the rest of the night. From I Believe to What a Feeling to The Borderline to Blue to Salt and everything in between, we were treated to song after song after song. Fifteen songs in all.

They ended the show to a standing ovation.
The show was noting less than fantastic.
