WCK headliner at beer festival in St. Lucia

Local band WCK is expected to be the headliner at the St. Lucian beer festival “Oktoberfest En Kweyol” to be held on October 2.

The event was launched in St. Lucia on Wednesday September 7, 2011. It is being  organized by the Windward and Leeward Brewery Limited (WLBL) and director of the company Jonathan Hall described it as ‘a wonderful excuse for a great big party.’

“A well intended, well mannered celebration of the simple things of life. Good food, good beer, good music, good dancing, good times,” he stated.

The festival has its roots in Germany but the organizers say it was adapted it to suit St. Lucia’s creole heritage and has now become a major event on the island’s creole calender although it is only in its fourth year.

The event is expected to feature signature beers from around the world and beers brewed by WLBL.

WCK will join other entertainment groups from around the region performing at the event.

    WCK cannot even headline a show in Dominica they can headline show overseas? WCK music is nonesense. Since rah and cornell leave that band die.

    I find Dominicans should be happy that a Dominican band can headline a festival. Stop all this negative talk. Go Ck Go.

    Please do not use the opportunity to bash Triple Kay either, they to are musical ambassadors for our country. Go to Guada and you all will find out how popular Triple Kay is.

    Music have changed, Technology is influencing it badly not only in Dominica. Listen to Machel and Xstatik a case in point.

    Big up CK and all Dominican bands

    Ck is bull s$%&&t. Any knowledgeable persson will realize this band is nothing more than a bunch of .lose makers. The core of the band is gone and true ck is no more. What has remained is the bassman in music in DA.and a bunch of noise makers. No longer a good representation of our music.

    I HAD LIKE WCK BEFORE ,BUT NOW THEIR MUSIC IS RUBBISH, TRIPLE KAY WOULD HAVE BEEN A BETTER BAND TO REPRESENT DOMINICA INSTEAD WCK.GUYS WHY THERES NO LUCIAN GROUP LINE UP FOR WORLD CREOLE FESTIVAL THEY ARE SUPPORTIVE TO OUR MUSIC,THIS WORLD CREOLE FESTIVAL ORGANIZATION SUCKS,ALSO THE FRENCH ISLANDS ARE SUPPORTIVE,I DONT KNOW IF THE HAITIANS ARE SUPORTIVE. I HAVENT BEEN THERE,I KNOW EVERY YEAR U GUYS HAVE HAITIAN BAND LINE UP FOR WORLD CREOLE FESTIVAL.

      You suck also.you are not sure what the hell you want to say and why.what part of the world are you from!!! You don’t seem to understand the concept of a festival at all.you really need to stop commenting for commenting sake.I guess you just got your computer. What does WCK being in beerfest st.lucia have to do with our creole festival eh!!! Get a damn life whoever you are…..

    • September 20, 2011

      I thought after your calling CK’s music rubbish you would come up with something better but Triple K, are you serious? You I must say are very poor with judgement and analysis

    • FED UP DOMINICAN
      September 20, 2011

      Personally I cant think why you feel that Triple Kay is better. I much prefer WCK’s music to Triple Kay. All the Triple Kays’ songs are only based on one theme, and they all sound the same.

      Although I do not “jump up” as a musician and an artist, if I had to jump up I would never waste my time to ever “jump up” to Triple K. I will give it to their musicians who have individual talent, but they need help with synchronization, and the singers, Oh my, Benji is not in it at all.

    Go CK Go. Represent The Nature Isle to the best. But, please sound like CK of the good “ole days”. Not just play the “ole-school” songs, but sound like the WCK of the 90’s. That’s what Lucians knew CK for. The song “Bouyon” (1996) was like a second national anthem in Luciaa back in 1996.
