December 3rd, 2020, St. George’s, GRENADA: No much live music since April 2020, we all miss it dearly. But Covid-19 is not going to stop live music from happening any longer. Music & Beyond and the Grenadian musicians started an initiative to bring live music directly to you into your backyard, into your living room, your garden, where ever you wish to experience together with friends and family a truly unique music performance. In the small circle of not more than 20 people as an audience we can adhere to Covid-19 protocol. Whatever little gatherings you plan in future you can spice it up with some live music, unplugged and straight from the heart.
The fact that you can find several music formations for booking on one platform is new to Grenada. On www.musicandbeyond.org you find a list of all available formations so far with their musical program of 45 minutes, the availability of the Duo/Trio, the price and the contact details.
Amorelle and Godson Browne “A2G” call their musical program Couple Up as it features a perfect blend of timeless love songs from the late 70s to present. A2G Duo performs songs like “Just The Way You Are”, “Stay With You”, “If I Ain’t Got You” and “Still The One” featuring artistes like John Legend, Shania Twain, Billy Joel and Alicia Keys. This experience is complimented with Christmas Classics, Original Music and Poetry. Amorelle Browne is a versatile singer/songwriter, background vocalist, poet and musician. Godson Browne is an experienced multi-instrumentalist, music director, arranger/composer and music teacher. The settings for the Couple Up program are versatile too: you can book the for a Brunch/Lunch Concert, Afternoon Lime, or Dinner Concert.
An other formation is “Soulternative” with Jonathan Francis who is a soulful singer with a soothing voice, strong yet sweet at the same time. Thera Dowe’s raspy tone along with her jazzy inflections will keep you zoned in as her body language and charisma bring life to the song. Aaron Neptune and Alex Neptune are biological brothers but also soul brothers who work together seamlessly creating a bubble of emotional expressions with their music. The set is fun and engaging as well as current and classic. Next to original music by Jonathan Francis you can look forward to songs like “Love Like This” by Natasha Bedingfield, “Valerie” by Amy Winehouse, “Unconditional Love” by Jah cure and “Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye.
And “Sultra”, an all female formation, plays mostly Sabrina’s and Laura Lisa’s original songs like “I’m Awake” and “Better Days” combined with some evergreens from Lovers Rock Music. They call their program Good for you Music, two powerful voices and one smooth guitar. Sultra creates an atmosphere of positivity using uplifting music that is completely acoustic and soulful and comes with a cultural and Caribbean flare. All three of them are experienced artistes and hearing them perform together is a real treat. Whatever event you are planning with your family and friends Sultra will add the right emotional cushion to it.
The intention of Music & Beyond is to grow this list of musicians available for everybody to book and enjoy.
