Bequia in for two-week shaking


“BEQUIA ROCKS” starts today and goes on until January 26th at Devil’s Table and Moskito Beach Bar on Bequia.

“BEQUIA ROCKS” was born last January when acclaimed pop stars Daniel “Moneybrother” Lemma and Robert “Funky Man” Sohlberg spent two weeks in Bequia writing music for their new albums and performed together with the band “Big Is Less” at the Devil’s Table Restaurant as part of their stay.{{more}}

The musicians had so much fun that they decided to buy a second home in Bequia. On his return to Europe, Moneybrother recorded and launched his new award winning record MOUNT PLEASURE. Grammy winner Daniel Lemma, who performs with his soulful and timeless music with a groove, launched his new album last month in Europe with songs he composed in Bequia.

Robert “Funky Man” Sohlberg and Lars and Margit Abrahamsson, the proprietors of Devil’s Table and Friendship Bay Beach Resort, discussed the possibilities of having an annual cultural festival, and to invite entertainers, artists, and photographers from all over the world who love the relaxed and laid back ambience of St Vincent and the Grenadines. “BEQUIA ROCKS “ was born.
