"Carribbean Party Fever"

Caribbean Party Fever erupted at the end of gastown when WIL CAMPA launched into another fast and festive numbers that pepered their set. Conga lines instantly appeared throughout Maple Tree Square and began weaving and swaying through the crowd of people, all on their feet cheering after almost two hours of Hot Cuban Dance Music and to finish the song with a Havana flourish. Genial Band leader Campa who has a sweet and powerful voice proved a relentless animator for the audience and musicians alike, prowling the stage with microphone in hand, breaking into dance moves and exhorting everyone to join in on the call and response songs, It felt like summer had finally arrived. - Alexander Varty and Tony Montague


Still working on that hot first release.
