NOTES FROM THE ‘PORT Vol.103

Karaoke, Dj’s, Dominican Dancehall, Bruno Mars on the big screen and tourists packed in around the pool bar so tight they sound like a flock of birds! Another great trip to the Caribbean with family this time on my wife’s side. Congratulations to cousin Robyn on her marriage to Rusty! Great to get to know some extended family and rehash some relations with the immediate ones. The boys were a hit and kept us in line, for sure. The Mama Juana shots on wedding night with the old school classic wedding playlist and vintage hip hop were a perfect backdrop.

This just in…Vote for the song “There But For The Grace Of God” by Henry Norwood in The Canadian Songwriting Competition. He has been in this type of position before and done super well! Henry and friends enjoyed performing for family at The Cove on Saturday. They have so much pride for him!
