A look back at our first Independence/Republic celebration
By Mike Remie
Hello Friends and welcome to my entertainment column in this Independence/Republic edition of the magazine. I am very glad to once again keep you updated on the happenings around New York and the Tri State areas, in terms of entertainment by members of the Bajan community.
A Cocktail Sip was held by DJ Likkle D in Brooklyn on September 5th, 2021, at the American Legion Hall. The event was well attended, as the hall was packed. All protocols were in place and honored by the attendees.
Everyone was tremendously happy to greet each other. So much laughter filled the atmosphere, and it was something to behold....remember that almost two years had passed that everybody was forced to shelter in place from the Covid pandemic.
Nevertheless, at the party there was endless food and drinking, and everyone was having fun and enjoying themselves as they danced the night away to the music of three popular DJ's. Pumping out the tunes were the one and only DJ Shawn, and international DJ's Cutterman and DJ Lil Rick. Most people took time to take a photos or two with friends they hadn't seen in so long.
The highlight of the night was when Singer Marzville, who sings "Wan Give It To Ya" made a guest appearance.
People came from as far away as Boston, Florida, Connecticut, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and even as far away as Barbados. It was a sight to behold.
In the next few pages I will post some photos of party-goers for that evening's event. You are certain to recognize some of your friends and maybe relatives. I look forward to bringing you my next post. Until then, stay safe.
