An image of the the massive crowd on day 3 of Creole in the Park 2010

Day Three of LIME Creole in the Park was somewhat of a bittersweet occasion; whilst there were a few entertaining performances throughout day, it also marked the imminent end of Day 3 of CITP and with it one of the most disappointing final acts I’ve have experience since the event started.

The Day started off with performances by the Breezee’s Steel Pan, Karifuna, Machine Creole, and the Point Michel Cultural Group.

Following the Point Michel Cultural Group was Natural Vibes – one of Dominica’s Up-and-coming reggae bands.

Their assorted brand of somewhat conscious roots-reggae music, but with hint of R&B dominated the stage and whatever else was going on around the park at the time.

Next was the Waitukubuli Dance Theater who entertained the crowd with some creative dance, they were then followed by Freddie & Friends.

WCK and The Menace, The Kase & Smokie Cut continued the afternoon with their brand of lively and uptempo bouyon music had the crowd moving and shaking.

Peter Ram from Barbados was the final act of the day. With all the hype and notoriety revolving around Peter Ram, the huge crowd gather at the historic Botanical Gardens was expecting an interesting performance.

However, the Peter Ram lackluster recital of his popular songs was a disappointing and uninspiring way to headline a set, not least to close a day 3 of Creole in the Park. Sure, his performance may have been slick and wistful to some, but it’s far from the big, intense conclusion that audiences have come to expect -dissatisfaction apparent in the dwindling crowd numbers. Stay turned to find out what happens on the final day of LIME Creole in the Park 2010.

Crowd at Creole in the Park

LIME Creole in the Park suffered a somewhat poor turnout on Day 1, and Day 2 got off of a similarly slow start.

But with the Midnight Groovers, Swinging Stars, and the Carib Calypso Connection featuring some Dominica’s most popular calypsonians to hurrah on the main stage later in the day, day 2 ramped up to an awesome high note.

A sunny to partly cloudy weather forecast seemed to keep many people home until mid-afternoon.

Shades of Green, Midnight Groovers, and Marie Claire Giraud all had to work with the crowds they were given, but thankfully the park began to fill as Swinging Stars took the stage.

One of my favorite acts on Day 2 was the Carib Calypso Connection featuring Bobb, Soul Puss, Observer, Tasha P, Sye, Hunter, Prospser, Daddy Chess, Dice, and Karessah. Fans responded in kind to the favorite calypsonians, whose energy and interaction kept the crowds hot while the temperature began to drop.

Like you, dear readers, I can’t wait to see what happens on Day 3, with WCK, The Menace, The kase & Smokie Cut, and Peter Ram from Barbados all on the lineup is definitely expected to draw a huge crowd.

Kompa Kila
from Guadeloupe at Creole in the ParkKompa Kila from Guadeloupe

LIME Creole in the Park kicked off yesterday at the historic Botanical Gardens. Although there were some concerns over the weather in the early part of the day, but it actually worked out OK.

Strange sound mixing issues continued to plague the performers, and there was a definite absence of that ‘Creole in the Park’ vibe on the opening day.

Whether that will remain true for tomorrow’s show, offering a more stacked line up headlined by Swinging Stars and the Carib Calypso Connection performance remains to be seen.

The only main stage bands worth mentioning for me on the day one were the Original Serenade Band, who put on a solid energetic performance, and Kompa Kila from Guadeloupe, who seemed to get better with each song.

Finally, the highlight of the day for me was definitely the Fanatik Bank. Not only did they inject the party vibe with some much needed energy, but they put on a fantastic performance which coincided with whole Independence Celebrations.

Overall, day one of Creole in the Park was much calmer than I imagined; also a lack of excitement and energy. I’m expecting more fun, but more logistical frustration, from Day 2.
