>> View Kes The Band Listening Party GalleryDid u know that Kes already released 4 albums and the latest one “Stereotype” is the 5th one at the same time being the 2nd one in 2011??
Pretty impressive, isn’t it?
It was also impressive how Kes’s new album launch listening party was set up on the 9th of August 2011 in Kapok hotel. Definite props to Question Mark Entertainment for choosing the location, I always thought this outside restaurant/bar area at Kapok hotel had some unique character. It gave this event an intimate and exclusive feel. TJJ had the pleasure to be a part of this special event and report to you.
At first we all were spoiled by some great tasting cutters and drink of choice while the dj was playing song after song including of course Kes repertoire. The rumor spread around that Kes was not going to perform at this event. Since it is a listening party we all were staring at the tv screens watching Kes’s videos, live and behind the scenes footage kind of hoping to see more action. To our surprise the dancers gave a small performance and while we all were focused to see more dance moves we forgot to realize that Kes and the band disappeared.
At the least expected moment the curtain dropped and there it was: the whole band set up ready to perform few songs for this small crowd of invited guests.
Kes was thanking all his fans and everyone who supported them throughout the years of hard work and struggles within the music business. It was a very genuine, out of heart speech which melted my heart and put smiles on all the faces. The performance was short but beautiful and enthusiastic, just like the whole event: intimate, warm close up with the band. The album!
‘Stereotype’ is a 13 track album with a bonus track including songs that you already know and like and the ones which might be a surprise for you all. I believe Kes is going in the right direction with their music to break through and represent Trinidad and Tobago on the global scale.
This music is a quality on the worldwide level. The combination of the music Kes delivers, the image and the stage performance, Kes is one of the most marketable bands out of TnT (In my most humble opinion).
Look out for this album and make sure it’s in your collection and watch how Kes spreads his wings to show the world where he is from. Ania Orlowska for TJJDid we forget anything? Add your 2 cents below... >> View Kes The Band Listening Party Gallery
