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.

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.

The third day of Creole in the Park was surprisingly nice, despite the heavy rain which carried slightly into the latter part of the evening. Unlike day one and day two – day three for us was probably the most laid back, partly because it was raining most of the afternoon. As far as bands we covered on day three, I’ve to admit we missed a couple acts we wanted to see due to the rain, so we decided to take it easy and just casually walk the grounds to see if there anything interesting going on.

Day three started with performance by the cultural group karifuna, Point Michel Cultural Group, Phase 5 Steel band, Free Joseph, and Nature Vibes -one of the upcoming Reggae bands in Dominica.
Next on the main stage was Soca artist ‘Ricky T’, who is taking the Caribbean by storm with his soca hit song ‘Pressure Bloom’. No rain was going to defer Dominicans from seeing Ricky T perform.

The seventh act on the main stage was ever-hot, ever-exciting TripleKay International, who despite the rain rocked the massive crowd with hits from their new album Colours and their growing catalogue of hits.

Day three was brought to an end by the Kings of Cadence Midnight Groovers, who captivated crowd with many hits from the pass. The large numbers of returning Dominicans were particularly fun of the Midnight Groovers, seeing that it was Cadence music they grew up listening too.
