Tamara Marshall comes together at Carib Beach Bar

The audio doesn’t do justice to Tamara’s powerful delivery… but all in all it’s not bad for a little Flip camera that Ian Bourne won in a contest!

Thanks to The Bajan Reporter for “working” on a Saturday night!  🙂

    Tamara is always a “righteous” performer with the best set of pipes in the Caribbean region. Power, range, tone she simply stands out from the rest! Pity Ian didn’t capture the near Finale when the Band had Tamara, the talented and sassier Jan Keizer and the (surprise!) Empress of Jazz CiCi Austin, now back from living in Canada on stage for the rollickin anthem Proud Mary, led by Tamara at her fullest powers! The entire Carib was “rollin’ on the river” a river that seemd to be in full flood! CiCi had them cheering when she addded her trademark “growl” to the lyrics!

    The funniest scene of the night was a cameo by Ricky Stoute, in for a few days from his German home! Up on stage to sing Hey Jude with Tamara, Ricky suddenly realised he didn’t know the lyrics! Much to the hyper-amusemnt of other songstresses like TC , Jan et al! That didn’t stop him from grooving to the tune and finally Tamara found him a sheet with the lyrics and Ricky, as to be expected from such a class professional deliverd in spades! Rickty come home more often. Your super voice is much missed by aficionados who appreciate real artistry!

    Footnote: A Canadian visitor spoke to me and said: Wow! Great show eh? This Band is f***** good!” I replied ” Amazing talent on stage and from the invited singers, some of whom sang unrehearsed! Do you think you could hear all that back in Canada for $15 Barbados? “Nope” he said. “No way for that price, anywhere in the world”! Now that is added value! I’m sure he’ll tell every one back home about this night!

    Ummmmmm, Ian or somebody labeled that video wrong. It’s not “Revolution No. 9”. It’s not even “Revolution”.

    Try “Come Together”.

  4. Ouch I will correct it, there’s also another video on and that is correct – Wayne Gibbs covering Sweet Caroline (Youtube would not let me save it under Creative Commons, had to use a Standard YT license), and one more to upload – Malissa Alanna, did not see Ricky but I left at 11 {the rum was a bit too free-flowing, probably why I misnamed the Beatles’ tune ;)}

    Relieved and delighted the defibrillators remained unused for the evening…

  7. “Maybe the Romans had the numeral system maintained to restrain growth, invention and innovation.Latin was used and died, except for what other languages used for beginnings and endings etymology. Math seems to be the magical key to understanding why goldfish have a 3 second memory and strings vibrate butterfly wings causing global destruction from thousands of miles away and the sun reverses its magnetic poles and causes sunspots disabling our satellites. Scientific discovery is the why and math seems to be the how. The Greeks also taxed the citizens to death, opened endless wars and entertained the people with circuses and bread-free grain, and in our case TV. It kept people happy while the government went on with no controls. Could we be on that path by not making education free and teaching free thinking skills? you decide”
