Kickback up North
Four years ago, a group of five friends came together with their other friends, and their other friends’ friends, drawn mainly from the two most northerly parishes on the island –– St Lucy and St Peter –– for what would later become one of the main party groups that side of the island.
Jamon White, speaking to Bajan Vibes recently at the Speightstown Esplanade, said the aim was to fill a void on that side of the arena.
“Most people would know of the Norsemen that hail from the North, but we are the newest group to come from this side. We see what we are doing as brining activity back to the community, some social activities and so on. Kickback Sundays is one of these activities.
“It is an event we came up with a year or so ago for Crop Over, and we decided that we would do it again this year. So, from around 7 p.m. on a Sunday until around about 2 a.m. the next day, we come together here at the Speightstown Esplanade, and, along with all those persons from the North, we have a good time,” White said.
