They’ve only been around for one year, but Krave the band proved last weekend why they are the ‘biggest and baddest’ in the business.
They pulled out all the stops at their band launch held at Clermont, St James last Saturday.
Sticking with their tag line, More than a band, it’s an experience, they gave patrons a show unlike any other.
The launch coincided with the big fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Mani Pacquiao, and the bandleaders used that to their advantage, offering boxing fans in attendance the chance to watch the fight live via big screens.
However, due to the fight and other technical difficulties, the launch of the costumes was pushed back by some two and a half hours, much to the annoyance of some in the crowd.
Nevertheless, their anxiety quickly vanished as soon as the first model hit the stage signalling the start of the 2015 showcase of Wild Wild West.
Not only Mayweather threw punches that night, because each costume that hit the stage knocked the one that preceded it right out the ring. They were just that good!
The sections included: Starry Nights, Tequila, Savage Beauty, Orient Express, Mojave Sands, Dream Catcher and Cactus Flower.
And in true Krave fashion, they did more than just launch costumes. They brought in some international superstars to help them do it.
Miss Jamaica Universe, Kaci Fennell graced the stage, modelling the individual costume Diamond in the Rough.
From the time her slender and very toned body hit the stage and
she flashed her winning smile, the crowd went wild. Kaci was a natural on stage and thoroughly enjoyed the soca vibes.
And if that wasn’t enough, American actor and model Robert Riley also brought his own special vibes, proudly showcasing his Bajan and Trini roots by the rhythm in his waist.
Following the presentations, all the models took to the stage and partied to a live performance by Trinidad artiste Lyrical, who left them asking for more.
The presentation was indeed fascinating and one could only imagine how wild it will it get on the road come August.
Krave is definately more than a band, it’s a must-have experience.
