NO LIVE D.N.A. ON BOAT CRUISE, BUT CRUISE A BASH
Whenever Universal Xpression puts on a boat ride, its definitely a joyous ride. That was the theme at this year\'s ride all 200+ people on the cruise surely had the time of their lives. We set sail at approximately 3:15pm. Should have left at 3pm but you know how some people nuh know how fi tell time nah call nuh name doh. It was a wonderful day for a cruise, nice sunny skys with a cool breeze to follow. We got under way and everyone settled in to music by WD & Black Star Intl. Special guest was Killaface Sound from Chicago, not booked for the cruise but since him and I were in the area back from our gig in NewYork, we asked to play for a few minutes. 30 minutes into the cruise, dinner was served. Nothing like Jerk Chicken & Rice & Peas on a Sunday Afternoon. After everyone ate we all relaxed and listened to the wonderful music of Universal Xpression. During this time however, I was keeping a watchful eye on \"The Live D.N.A.\" outrage that was scheduled to take place. Anyone and everyone was a suspect. I even thought the bartender may be the one, but the entire cruise went without incident.
Killaface definitely rock the place with some good foundation tunes and kept it hype with some old jiggy favourites. He played for about 20 minutes, then WD & Black Star took over with a solid round of Soca and more reggae.
The girls on the boat was asked to enter a Dutty Whine Contest to see who could Dutty Whine the best with the winner winning a dinner for two package. I can\'t recall the name of the girl who won, but believe me she had her head spinning at a 100 miles an hour.
The crusie ended around 6pm. Everyone from the smiles shown truly had a great time. Good to see Errol Service, Henry Montague, Pat, Roland and everyone that turned out. Hope to see more of you next year.
