JERRY SEALES LAUNCHES NEW CD


St. George -- About fifty prominent Grenadian citizens gathered at the Seales Music Bar on Monday for the launching of the album, Jerry Seales & Lifetime Friends Sons and Daughter.

The album is a compilation of music crossing several genre and time periods and contains a touch of Soul, R&B, Funk, Kaiso, Reggae and Jazz.

In addition to Seales Seales chairing the proceeding, he was the main influence in putting the album together, mastering and re-mastering, organizing the distribution channels and having a collection of his lifetime friends collaborate in making the evening a reality. Those who are unaware of his skills would wonder how a sitting Magistrate could also be a first class musician.

However, people who have seen him in action immediately realize that Jerry is a multifaceted, talented and innovate character. Not only is he capable of finding the time to pursue his various interests, he literally transforms as he shifts from the seriousness at the bench to the humorous presentation at a local bar and into the technical aspects of the production in the studio.

COUNTDOWN CLOCK FOR SOCA MONARCH AND DIMANCHE GRAS!

St. George -- This year, for the first time, artistes performing in both Soca Monarch and Dimanche Gras finals will be subject to time stipulations! In previous years, Soca artistes were given an allotted time of 8 minutes in the semi-finals and 10 minutes at Soca Monarch to complete their performance.

However, this year, artistes appearing in either show will have 10 minutes to complete their performance and have a continual stream of information on their remaining time allocation visible to them whilst on stage.

Netherlands Insurance, the trendsetter in the support of the arts in the Spice Isles, has once again taken up the mantle by sponsoring a much-needed countdown clock for major shows of Spicemas. The clock which was first used during the earlier quarter/semi-finals provides a countdown showing to artistes the time they have remaining for their performance. There is also a synchronised colour notification whereby the clock's various colours move from green to red, thereby giving artistes an additional visual cue when they have passed beyond seven minutes.
