What a NeXperience!


Share post:

ONE NIGHT, one amazing NeXperience.
Last Saturday night, De Bond of the Kensington Oval was the place to be for an amazing line-up of talent.
Cobra Starships’ lead singer Gabe Saporta was the hyped guest megastar and played a short set, featuring Good Girls Go Bad and You Make Me Feel. No stranger to Barbados, the musician kept the vibe high, and the moderately-sized crowd showed him love.
However, it was NexCyx which was the true star that night.
After a long wait, Mahalia, Kris, Chadd, Russell and Andre came to the stage at 11:45 p.m. opening the show with Gossip Girl. Queen, One More, Nightclub Superhero and On the Floor were also on the set list, as well as newer selections, Here to Stay and freshly-released In Da Club. Covers of Lorde’s Royals and 90s hip hop and rap songs kept the party vibe alive.
Former NexCyx vocalist Rochelle Griffith also teamed up with Mahalia for a cover of Lauryn Hill’s That Thing and one hair-raising rendition of Alanis Morissette’s Uninvited.
Other homegrown supporting acts included Teff who performed Starz, the rootsy Simon Pipe who sang If Only These Walls and the beautifully delivered Through the Blinds, featuring Livvi Franc.
NexCyx’s dreams of an Eternal Summer brought the curtains down on the performances. While some patrons stayed back for the party, others made their exit around 1:35 a.m. when the performances ended. Certainly one thing was on most minds: when is the next-perience? (LW)
