Archived: Kees Strips Shirtless in Speyside- Shows Off His Seduction At Jazz 2013

Published

on

A steamy showcase of Soca, reggae, R&B and even calypso music courtesy Kes The Band – led of course by the band’s main man, Kees Dieffenthaller was all that it took to get the crowd at Speyside in the countryside of Tobago, to their feet and moving toward the front of the stage last evening. Taking over the show from performers like the ever enjoyable Fire Empress and her husband, David Reid who together make up Fire Fuzion, Trinidad based jazz band, Hyjnx, Tobagonian vocalist, Kervern Carter and Barbados’ Arturo Tapin, Kees left a lasting impression at the first event on the Tobago Jazz Experience 2013 calendar. He even scored points among the ladies when he went shirtless- strutting his stuff across the stage and teasing with every chord sung.

Kees thrilled the crowd at Speyside last night with his amazing vocals.

His sex appeal wasn’t the main attraction last evening but that certainly didn’t stop the ladies from lusting. His vocals on point as usual, the island pop heartthrob and his musical outfit of well endowed male and female dancers, musicians and technical crew impressed beyond words. Kees’ on stage swag has been a topic of many discussions in the past. On show night in Tobago, the conversations continued as many looked on in awe of his presence and natural knack for stimulating audience members of different ages.

The Speyside event brought out a massive crowd of villagers from the area and certainly as far as the Scarborough area. Many had made the trek to the countryside to take in the experience and with Kes the Band a headline act, it was more a matter of what time to get there, rather than if they should be there. They were all there!

Delivering a slate of hits that ranged from his 2011 Groovy Soca Monarch winner, Wotless to his reggae hit, Tuesday on the Rocks, some of the oldies but goodies in genres familiar to most if not all, and in between flashing smiles of appreciation to the crowd who raised their hands and moved their waists in approval, Kees was a hit. Chatting with ETCETERABUZZ.COM before the show, he said he felt privileged to have been included on the Jazz Experience cast and was happy to have had the opportunity to appear in the rural village of Speyside, noting that such areas are often forgotten.

Fya Empress of Fya Fuzion gave a tremendous performance.

Also appearing and impressing with their powerful renditions were King Super Blue- T&T’s reigning road march and Power Soca Monarch King and his step son, K Rich. Backstage, K Rich told us he was happy to be a part of the show and couldn’t wait to perform for the audience. Also leaving his mark last evening with what could only be described as a powerful reggae set was Guardah Knight. He performed just after Kees and truly thrilled the crowd. SuperBlue donned a dapper looking blue jacket that dazzled in the spotlight and like the showman he is- he infiltrated with poise and fervor.

This evening, the Jazz experience continues. Fans of Positive, Kimba Sorzano, Isaac Blackman and others are in for a treat and ETCETERABUZZ.COM will be live on location to bring you the latest, as it happens. Follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook as we follow the fun and bring it to you.

Bass Says it Loud and Clear! He Wants More Brotherhood in T&T After Murder Suicide in Carenage.

Bass calls on men to help each other.

A murder suicide in the Carenage area of West Trinidad on Saturday has sent ripples through the country. The young woman shot and killed, was the mother of a three -year- old boy. Her daughter’s father subsequently killed himself, leaving a note to his son, saying simply, “Sorry”. Entertainer and radio personality, Adrian Hackshaw, the man best known as Third Bass, says it’s time for men to help each other.

In a social media post on Saturday, Bass said:

 “Men, let’s start talking to help each other deal with our emotions better…. PLEASE. #BrotherBrother #goodness.”

It isn’t the first time that the often vocal radio mic man has given vent to his personal emotions on social issues. In a subsequent social media post, later in the evening, Bass questioned whether the situation that unraveled in Carnage, could’ve been prevented. He questioned whether anyone of the couple’s friends or family members had attempted to intervene or were otherwise told to stay out of it.

Domestic Violence and its effect on children, family members and by extension, society, remains a topic of much study. In Minnesota, a small community called, Duluth has effected the Deluth model of dealing with Domestic Violence. This is what it is:

 Duluth Model approach Employs the following:

  • Takes the blame off the victim and places the accountability for abuse on the offender.
  •  Shares policies and procedures for holding offenders accountable and keeping victims safe across all agencies in the criminal and civil justice systems from contacting the police to the entering the court system.
  • Prioritizes the voices and experiences of women who experience battering in the creation of those policies and procedures.
  • Believes that battering is a pattern of actions used to intentionally control or dominate an intimate partner and actively works to change societal conditions that support men’s use of tactics of power and control over women.
  • Offers change opportunities for offenders through court-ordered educational groups for batterers.
  • Has ongoing discussions between criminal and civil justice agencies, community members and victims to close gaps and improve the community’s response to battering.

Machel Montano and Kernel Roberts Win Court Appeal in Zen Fracas Case.

Published

on

The case involving Soca heavyweight Machel Montano and his former band mate, producer, Kernal Roberts yesterday reached another milestone with a ruling that saw the appeal won by the entertainers. The Zen Nightclub incident case has spanned almost a decade. Montano, who has been relatively quiet in recent weeks, showing fans more of a spiritual side on his social media platforms, is undoubtedly planning his Carnival 2018 season. Speculation is rife that top names in music internationally, may be included in the Machel Monday lineup, once again in 2018.

We spoke with Montano’s mother, Elizabeth Montano yesterday. She explained that there will be a retrial of the case, despite the duo having won the appeal. Mrs. Montano told us that the reason given for this is simply the fact that Montano and Roberts are public figures, Montano being an icon in his own right, and based on public interest in the case, a retrial was thought necessary by the judge.

Montano meanwhile, yesterday took to social media to thank fellow artistes, Bunji Garlin and Fay Ann Lyons for the past year, having worked closely with them after the release of the single, “Buss Head.”

He said:

“It was a real blessing for @chekothari, my team and I to partner with @bunjigarlin, @fayannlyons and the entire #Viking#GroundEmpire team for the Buss Head Tour. We developed not only a business relationship, but a true friendship. We received an overwhelming amount of love and support at every stop along the Tour – Toronto, Barbados, London, New York and Miami. Sending much love to the global Soca Massive that supported this song and movement. Much more to come! Respect!”
