Nu-Vybes Band

Postby KarenS » Tue May 30, 2006 8:28 am

From "St. Kitts’ pride and joy, the Nu-Vybes Band International aka De Sugar Band, has added another distinguished award to its already packed shelf of awards and accolades.

The five-time St. Kitts Road March champions was honoured with the coveted “Best Soca Group” award at the recently held 13th Annual Reggae Soca Music Awards at the Broward County Centre for the performing arts on Saturday.

The band jointly shared the spotlight with established Bajan soca super group Krosfyah.

Edwin Yearwood accepted on behalf of his band, Krosfyah, with Nu-Vybes’ On De Bandstand blaring in the background. Unfortunately, Nu-Vybes was not able to accept its award as it was in Atlanta performing, that same evening, for Carnival celebrations there. Other nominees in the category included Machel Montano and Xtatik out of Trinidad and the Jam Band from the US Virgin Islands.

Show producer Luther Mackenzie said he was satisfied with the show but expressed some disappointment that the Nu-Vybes was not able to accept its awards in person.

The band has just completed its annual USVI Carnival tour and is expected to perform in upcoming events in Anguilla in early June and in Chicago, for the first time, in August. Nu-Vybes is also expected to be a major part of the Eastern Caribbean Legends of Music Concert to be held at the Tribeca Center of Performing Arts on 10 June in New York City.

The band will also be the headliners for the opening soca night of the 10th Annual St. Kitts Music Festival from 29 June – 1 July. The band has performed a record eight times at the St. Kitts fest.

Ny-Vybes has also recently wrapped up shooting on its first music video. Don’t stop the tempo is the name of the video and it was shot in various scenic locations on St. Kitts as well as in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. The video was directed by Mark Enyola Cropper of Trinidad and is currently being edited."
