Popular band Power X Four will be on the road this year; but just not as revellers are accustomed to it.
Responding to some misinformation on social media that Power X Four would not be coming this year at all, leader Chetwyn Stewart confirmed it would be on the road, but not as a full band. He said the band is currently in a transitional phase and already putting plans in place for next year.
“Power X Four is transitioning this year. My daughter is actually taking over next year; so we’re only going on the road this year with like family and friends; and then they are bringing a different brand next year,” Stewart explained.
The band, which has won many awards at Grand Kadooment over the years, is now looking to higher heights and ways to give the band a complete makeover.
Stewart said that over the last few years the band had had some sponsorship issues, citing this as one of the main reasons for the decision to rebrand and come back afresh.
“Over the years, Power X Four tried to keep our backlines below BDS$600, and we did very well with sponsorship; but now the sponsors are going a different route, and you can’t blame them. They are putting more funding and backing into the all-inclusive events,” he added.
Stewart said the band would be back bigger and better next year with fresh ideas and plans for their loyal customers.
However, the brand Power X Four will still be hosting events in the Party Stand at upcoming cricket games held at Kensington Oval –– one of them being the tribute to Sir Garry Sobers
The Party Stand is ever a hit with visitors and locals alike during cricket games.
