I-Web upfront with Energy
There’s a new man joining Kirk Brown at the front of the Energy Band. He is the reigning Pic-O-De-Crop Monarch Ian I-Web Webster.
He told Bajan Vibes that this relationship had been long in the making, but they had officially been rehearsing as a cohesive team three months running.
“This was in the works from since last year. We met for the very first time at Ignite – Cohobblopot 2013 which was held at the Kensington Oval. We talked and I said to him, ‘Kirk, I would like to work with you’, and so on. And we took it from there.
“We had a few conversations, and as time went on we began to plan and organize ourselves for 2014. The truth is when I examine Kirk’s work ethic, I’m a person who works hard but my work ethic is usually targeted towards music. Kirk’s work ethic usually is business-oriented, and I thought that it would be an awesome thing to marry the two.
“I bring my musicality and he brings his business acumen to the table, and form a nice synergy . . . . We rebranded ourselves, changed the look of the band, new music,” the monarch said.
Formerly known as Strategy, the Energy Band was rebranded in 2013 as a result of the band’s signature high-energy performances and diversification from the Barbadian club scene to a live backing band. The award-wining Energy Band to date has performed throughout Barbados, the Caribbean region and internationally, accumulating numerous accolades.
