Wolmer's BBQ pulls sombre crowd

The popular Wolmer's Barbecue, hosted at the New Mas Camp on Saturday night pulled hundreds of patrons. The air was decorated with the smell of food, and a host of DJs and recording artistes delivered performances to entertain the Wolmerians, who were still licking their wounds after their Manning Cup defeat to St George's College.

DJ Jon Jon played during the early segment of the event, and he went for some hardcore dancehall selections such as Broad Daylight by Vybz Kartel, Step Out by Busy Signal and Hennessy by Mavado.

By 9:30 p.m., OO7's Supa Hype took over as MC and he tried hard to get a mostly quiet audience involved. He started the stage show segment by calling on Big Pop, a finalist in the Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall competition.

The artiste performed two songs and exited, making way for another juggling segment.

This time, the intention was to get the audience dancing, and as such, several dancing songs were played like Raging Bull by Over Mars, Tek Wey Yuself by Mr Vegas and Gallis Swing.

Veteran dancehall artiste Powerman was next to perform and he sang '90s singles such as Wife, Wine and Sing and All Over The Ocean.

Romain Virgo followed and attempted to perform his usual professional roots reggae set. However, he was interrupted in the middle of his performance by unruly patrons who began to clap, and so he sped through most of his tracks.

Tifa followed next, performing Spell It Out, Dash Out and Swaggin among others. And the same audience, which was clapping Romain Virgo's roots reggae set, was seen jumping with glee in approval of the performance of the dancehall diva.

Other performances of the night came from the likes of Delus, Darrio, Francheno, Vysionear and Masicka, among others.
