Woodford Café stages Unplugged Tuesdays
Woodford Café patrons were treated to an evening of sheer musical delight at the November 23 staging of Unplugged Tuesdays when Nadia Batson, arguably the sassiest women in soca, and Farmer Nappy (Darryl Newton Henry), the new crowned prince of groovy soca, took the stage and thrilled them. Premiering new soca releases and rendering recently published selections, while taking fans on a journey down memory lane, both entertainers had patrons in a state of frenzy at the full night event.
But that was not only a result of the ditties that constituted their repertories. Appearing individually, they reminded music lovers of the communicative skills and tickled fans with their sprightly narratives. So when, the attention returned to their music, the excitement was ten-fold. Lil Bits (Shivonne Churche), host of the popular series, started the programme with a thunderous welcome and then asked which act should be invited on stage first.
Judging from the top notch performances witnessed, it would not have mattered who was called to break the ice, citing that the musical fun would have been just as rich. Touting himself as a gentleman and always wanting to be considered a ladies man, Farmer Nappy allowed Batson to take the lead and set the tone for excitement. Apart from having the support of her sexy SASS members in the audience, Batson commanded the predominantly female audience, too.
In the spotlight, Farmer Nappy benefitted from team support, too. Reigning Road March and International (Power) Soca Monarch champion Machel Montano and Patrice Roberts took up position in the audience. But that’s not where the list of celebrities out for night of quality entertainment ended. Reigning Young King, Benjai (Rodney Le Blanc); Ataklan, Screws, and cricketer Lendl Simmonds made Unplugged Tuesdays the event of choice to jump-start their event calendar for the week and were not disappointed.
