WHAT'S HAPPENING By Todd Mangatal
Greetings To All My On-Line Family and Friends
Now, back to my world!
Over the holidays, we had the wonderful opportunity to see Capleton in concert, and that was a great experience. My wife and I saw Capleton many years ago while working with the folks over at the Crossroads, and back then working was all that was on our mind, so we didn’t have the opportunity to enjoy this conscious brother, as we did this time. Yes, all his music is good, but it’s even better hearing and seeing him perform it live. We were taken to another world by his performance, and it really knocks us off our feet when we witness the crowd taking over, and singing all of the artists’ songs. Capleton would sing two words from his song, and the crowd took over and finished the entire song. You could tell how thrilled Capleton was from this by his performance. Of course, many people who attended the concert including myself was very disappointed about the time the show began, and we were able to converse with many “big wigs” at the show about this problem. After being asked by many folks “what time the show would begin”, I decided to voice my opinion about this problem and question why? From the many conversations I had with these “big wigs”, “who’s who” in the Caribbean community here in DC, and promoters, I was told that the artist is to blame. However, we all know that is not the case. How could anyone pay an artist to do a show, and that artist dictate the time they feel like or want to come on? That is not correct! Let’s analyze this for a moment. Lets say you decided to bring an artist to town, you did all your research, contacted the management company, obtain the cost for bringing them/band into town. At this point you have reviewed and thought over all the details about this particular show and all responsibilities are spelt and written out in the contract and rider. When that artist or his people sign on the dotted line, everything is set, the time the artist gets into town, transportation, accommodations, food, salary and time performance begins. How then I am being told that the artist begins his performance so late because he chooses to. No way, I believe this is the promoter’s fault. It seems the promoters are so interested in making as much money as they can, that the show is normally held up in order to stuff as many people in the venue as possible. So, I won’t accept the “bull” about the artist. That’s completely incorrect! Anyway, other than the many complaints and grumbling about how late the show began, everything was IRIE. I know many suffered the next day since Monday was not a holiday.
