Getting Ready for Bequia Mount Gay Music Fest 2010!

nd Ba ew os N st bad e t ot Bar H m e Th fro








DANA GILLESPIE & THE LONDON BLUES BAND & GUEST ARTISTES It’s just two weeks to go before the 7th Bequia Mount Gay Music Fest kicks off its music-filled four-day weekend! Opening honours go to the Frangipani Hotel, where the fabulous 13-piece Elite Steel Orchestra from St. Vincent will perform on Thursday 28th Jan from 9pm. On Friday 29th, the Bequia Mount Gay Music Fest welcomes Dana Gillespie and the London Blues Band and her guest artistes to Bequia for another thrilling night’s entertainment dedicated to the Blues at their best. On Saturday 30th from 1pm, the Bequia Beach Hotel will be the venue for a free afternoon of hot and cool Jazz and Blues by the beach with the Syl McIntosh and Band, award-winning Blues pianist David Maxwell, Stan & Cora, Jim Coleman, Louis O’Neil amongst many others. Saturday night is the second big night of the Music Fest at De Reef with TRN Band from Jamaica + guests, Bequia’s own Papa Winnie, Toby Armstrong, The Mount Gay Blues Band and introducing for the first time in Bequia the hottest new band from Barbados - NEXCYX, performing their signature show-stopping blend of Rock, Hip Hop and Pop. Sunday will be a day to chill out in Lower Bay to the sounds of jazz, C&W from Bequia's Country Relatives, blues, rock and much more till the sun goes down…



De Reef in Lower Bay will once again be transformed into a unique entertainment complex, complete with live outdoor big screen video projection, covered al fresco dining and seating, and a newly rebuilt and extended stage area. Special Music Fest dinners at De Reef on Friday and Saturday nights let you choose to watch the action live on the big screen from the comfort of your dining table or move inside De Reef to get up close with the musicians and dance the night away! Dinners are by reservation only, and you will need to show your tickets on the gate - or purchase them when you arrive. (Single night tickets are EC$60 in advance or EC$70 at the gate.) Many other restaurants in Bequia are offering special early “Pre Music Fest” dinners so you can be in good time for Showtime at 8.30pm on both Friday and Saturday night. The only way to get the very best of the Music Fest is to plan to devote your whole weekend to music! Remember to ask for the special two-night ticket - a real bargain at only EC$99! Tickets for Sunday are EC$20 in advance or EC$25 at the gate. (No charge for admission to the Frangipani on Thursday and Jazz 'n 'Blues by the Beach on Saturday afternoon at the Bequia Beach Hotel beachfront bar.
