Dr. Jay’s Rounds
May 28, 2006
Good Evening Soca lovers! I’m Nurse Karen and these are Dr. Jay’s Rounds.
I just don’t get it. Far be it from me to complain about the weather when it’s hot and sunny. But how come the long weekend was soooooooooo cold, and now that bikini weather has struck…I wukkin’ Monday and de Yankees and dem have an extra day to fete.
So, it’s all systems go for carnival in San Francisco, Orlando and Atlanta. And if you were at Soca or Die last Sunday, you might believe that it’s carnival time in Toronto too. You should see people! So, don’t mind me. I acting vex that I have to work this weekend. But last weekend, I was real wukking. A little wuk for Kes the Band, A little wuk fuh Destra…and a whole set a wuk for Maximus Dan.
As much as we may complain about what we have to do to pay the bills, you gotta to be thankful that you can make your daily bread. Five weeks ago sexy soca crooner Bomani broke his jaw at a show in New York. Imagine that. You sing to make your living, then you end up in a freak accident that means you can’t open your mouth to sing…just months before your busiest time of year. The former Vincy Soca Monarch had his mouth wired shut for over a month…but on Wednesday they finally freed his jaw. He will be back to work…releasing his new songs for Vincy Mas next week.
Kevin Lyttle is hard at work right now too. Most of us would think that a guy like him has life pretty easy. I mean, how many soca artists can say they’re signed to a major record label? Well, meh friends that is a good question because Kevin Lyttle can’t say that either. Well…Not anymore! Atlantic Records was happy to cash in a few years ago. Turn Me On was a big hit that pushed Kevin Lyttle’s self titled album to sell more than 2 million copies worldwide. But, times tuff dread…it’s back to the drawing board. Lyttle was released from his contract…and now he’s in studio making new music that’s ten times hotter. I guess now we could say he’s self employed…
But such is life. Tomorrow is Monday and for most of us it’s back to work… All things considered, you might as well count your blessings.
