Nu-Vybes Band launches music video

BASSETERRE, St.Kitts – Reggae Soca Music “Best Soca Group” awards winners the Nu-Vybes Band International aka De Sugar Band showcased their debut music video to the international and local press on the opening day press conference of the 10th annual St.Kitts Music Festival at the Royal St.Kitts Marriot Hotel’s press centre.

The video entitled “Don’t stop the tempo” was shot in various scenic locations including St.Thomas USVI and St.Kitts. The scenic frigate bay area on St.Kitts served as the main backdrop of the video which also included 100’s of fans moving rhythmically to the sound of tempo. The project was spearheaded by Roger Brisbane of Brisbane Productions are multimedia company based in St.Kitts.

Brisbane has produced other videos in collaboration with Trinidadian videographer Eniola who recently worked on a video for the reigning queen of soca Destra.

Gregory “Mr. Mention” Hobson the songs writer and bandleader of Nu-Vybes indicated that the band was grateful to the direction of Brisbane as it was their first journey into the world of music videos. The much lauded vocalist and lyricists also expressed much anxiety and excitement for the opportunities, possibilities and exposure the video will bring to not only the Nu-Vybes Band International but to Kittitian and Nevisian artistes particularly in the soca/calypso genre.

The video was officially launched to the general public during the bands scintillating performance at the 10th annual St.Kitts music festival. The video preceded the bands festival set and was greeted with huge applause.

The 4 minute video ended and the 1000’s of music festival fans in attendance roared and cheered in approval as an indication that the band had done an excellent job on the video. The video formed part of the bands performance and raised the bar again for local St.Kitts-Nevis acts that have never produced music videos and incorporated it in performances.

The band’s performance was well received. However there was no time to enjoy the adulation as the band had to quickly rush to prepare for there early morning journey to the virgin islands where they were scheduled to perform the following night for the St.Johns festival.
