Island life calls for a cold beverage of choice from time to time. Such was the case on Sunday afternoon when T&T’s soca taipan, Machel Montano appeared with a crew of lovely ladies and his high roller crew at Grenada’s Umbrellas Restaurant and Bar along the coastline in Grand Anse. The artiste and his dance troop along with super producer, Kernal Roberts were in town for the island’s Spice Mas experience, having performed at the White In The Moonlight event on Sunday morning.

Montano has been hastily making stops across the world in recent months, having performed in Tortola before touching down in Grenada on Saturday. Last year he had told the crowd at White in the Moonlight that he had spent many vacations, as a youth, in the countryside of the tropical destination. On Sunday, having stopped in for a meal and drinks, Machel exuded a free spiritedness that looked good on him. Wearing board shorts and a t-shirt, the reigning Soca Monarch and Road March champ of Trinidad stood and smiled with fans, those visiting and from Grenada, for quick photos.

He soon settled in for lunch with his crew toward the rear end of the small restaurant but before you knew it, Montano was on his feet again. This time though, he had been answering to the subliminal call of the Tunapuna Vibrations Rhythm Section – a contingent of iron men and drummers who’d made their way to Spice Mas courtesy IMG Entertainment and Flavor De Mas. Together with his dancers, Machel threw out any inhibition that may have existed and provided onlookers with some live dance entertainment, at one point holding one of his dance members closely and showing that he’s no joker when it comes to the dance floor.

Grenada’s Mr. Killa was also spotted at the beach hot spot. He’d arrived on his motorcycle and greeted Montano and his team earlier but as the excitement unfolded stage side, the ‘Pepper Wine’ singer sat and took it all in with a smile.

Mr. Killa had told ETCETERABUZZ.COM earlier in the day that he had launched his very own band at White In The Moonlight, a feat he felt very proud of and one that he had sacrificed his season, to deliver on. Asked the name of the band, he said, “for now it’s just Mr. Killa and his band. I’m still gathering the ideas for names.”

The beach restaurant was filled to capacity on Sunday, this as visitors from across the world had made the trip to Grenada for what is proving to be another epic Caribbean carnival experience in 2014.
