Huge Splash batters West Coast


Share post:

SOMETHING EPIC happened on the West Coast last Saturday. A tidal wave of magnetic proportions caused a huge raucous.

But when the Splash hit the shores, there was no injury to life or limb. Instead, there were smiling faces and happy feet among the party faithful who gathered at the Beach House for the annual event.

Food, drink, fun and loads of entertainment were washed ashore for the hundreds present.

The crowd included a Who’s Who and the crème de la crème of the entertainment industry.

Grynner, Mikey, Biggie Irie and Peter Ram savagely attacked coastlines causing devastating damage in the fete.

The sweet sounds of Turn Up De Speaker, Stinging Bees, Live Fuh This, CEO, Money Well Spent, Pankatang, Good Morning, Tribe and All Ah We were enjoyed by the massive that jumped, pranced and danced leaving only debris behind.

When Stiffy took the mic he added to the devastation. He sang Garden, Squat, Bus Crawl and Ride It much to the delight of the crowd. But when the DJ played the riddim of his winning song Tek Off Something no one bothered to seek safe harbour, since everyone seemed willing to ride the wave.

The first-ever Bashment King enjoyed the vibes so much that after his set he was in the crowd drinking, dancing with patrons and having fun.

On the eve of Soca Royale, Lil Rick left a trail of destruction in the wake of the aftermath.

The Hypa Dawg gave an energetic performance of all his 2016 hits songs. Brek Down De Fence, Wine Teef, Get Thru, Way Up, Bacchanalist and of course his winning Party Monarch song Iz A Bajan.

As if giving a preview of what was to come the next day at Bushy Park, the “Ugly Dawg” let loose.

Like a true Party Monarch king he commanded full control of the night.

DJ Soca Superman (Alvin Toppin) took the Splash Pool Party down to its 11:15 p.m. finish, an hour and fifteen minutes over the 10 p.m. scheduled time to end.
