Freeport, Grand Bahama Island - The Uppercut journey continues as the band moves up several notches with the addition of two new members, Syd Collie and Massawe Dean. “Two sisters that sing really well and an additional keyboard player for the band in Syd” says David Mackey bandleader and  former lead guitarist for Grammy nominated T-Connection Band.  He went on to say that the band’s biggest weakness was the lack of a full complement of backing vocals. “Initially we sought a single singer but when we invited Syd and Massawe to rehearsal, the sound was so sweet that the consensus was that we had to have them both.”
 
Acknowledging that it is difficult to get work for a large band, Mackey says,  “It’s all about the music. There are more than enough one-man bands and Karaoke people out there. People crave  real LIVE music...

The State of Caribbean Film: The Bahamas - May 30, 2017 - 11:33:33 PM

IMG_5341-SM_1.jpg
And that's a wrap for Cannes’ 70th! Walking away, this wasn’t the best Cannes Film Festival I've attended; at least not as it relates to ‘content’ in the competition. No. Cannes 70th was mostly about ‘form.’  I think it wanted to send a message about the shifting world of cinema: that, and the shifting word of the word “cinema.”

Cannes 2017 aimed to redefine cinema as it relates in infrastructure. We saw that with streaming giants like Netflix ( Okja) and Amazon ( Wonderstruck). We saw that with TV-as-cinema with work by Jane Campion’s “Top of the Lake” miniseries ( Top Of The Lake got better reviews at the festival than traditional films).
