Bugle and friends heat up 100
He promised an electrifying set and he delivered.
Entertainer Bugle turned in an impressive performance at 100, as the weekly live music concert at the entertainment hotspot wrapped up another week on Wednesday night.
100 Live is a weekly entertainment showcase held on the roof of the popular Hope Road eatery.
There was hardly space to move as scores of Bugle fans turned out to watch him perform live.
Although the concert got off to a late start, the entertainment package delivered by the man of the moment made up for the hourlong wait.
Fresh off his European tour, the entertainer, backed by the experienced Ruff Kut band, churned out hit after hit as he expertly fed the audience with songs of upliftment.
Staying true to his reggae roots, Bugle emanated positivity, delivering songs such as Anointed, What Have I Done To You, Don't Blame Life, Rasta Party and Nuh Compatible, among others.
Having lamented before the concert that he has not had the chance over the years to showcase his extensive catalogue, Bugle used the opportunity to also deliver some of his songs that people weren't too familiar with.
Ganja, a collaboration with Grammy-award winning entertainer Shaggy, was well received despite being relatively new to most of the members of the audience.
Still on the promotional trail, Bugle used songs from his latest album, Be Yourself, to encourage the audience to stay true to themselves and what they stand for.
Recounting the days when he had one pair of shoes or the many days he had to go without food because his family just didn't have it, Bugle encouraged persons not to 'sell out' for vanity stressing that through hard work and dedication, better days are guaranteed and success will only be a matter of time.
The night belonged to Bugle but he was also supported by a few friends from the industry. Romain Virgo, G Whizz, Christopher Martin and Capleton turned up to show their love for their fellow entertainer, but also took the time to deliver brief performances of their own.
Featured artistes Alexx A Game and Rockaz Element also turned in noteworthy performances. Their sets were brief but they managed to captivate the small gathering and got them warmed up and ready for the main act.
