CD Review: Little Summertime – Dani Hoy

Posted in Trop Rock Artists | Comments Off on CD Review: Little Summertime – Dani Hoy

Summer is a season we all relish as the time we can spend out-of-doors, running off to the warm sunny beaches, lounging by the pool with our margaritas, and not having to bundle up just to walk out to the car. Luckily for us, Dennis McCaughey and Tropical Soul has bottled summer up and applied to a shiny silver disc called Little Summertime.

 

With eleven original songs, there’s plenty of summer to soak in. The overall feel of the CD is breezy and joyful with an acoustic rock sensibility. Many of the cuts feature John Patti on steel drum and Doyle Grisham on steel guitar. The title song, which is the first cut on the CD, starts the fun right off the bat. “Little Summertime” the song is up-tempo from the first ukulele strum to the tight harmonies and handclaps over the chorus. “Richest Man in the World,” my personal favorite, has a wonderful strut and the chorus is infectious. It’s a great story, too, about making that musical leap into the unknown and the joy of doing it. “Made for You and Me” is a delicious duet between Dennis and Heather Sneeringer. It’s a very danceable romantic tune with gentle, easy harmonies. “Sweet Love” kicks up the country feel with background mandolin picking behind the chorus. This is a solid hit with Jere Groft on full drums and Doyle Grisham’s steel guitar. After hearing this one live I’m happy to hear it in full production on the CD.

 

Little Summertime doesn’t slow down much, but when it does it’s a sweet and rewarding change. “Paint the Sunset,” a song about making memories last, features finger-picking acoustic guitar and a prominent, sweeping steel guitar. Jere’s hand drums add to the mellow feel. Heather’s jewel-tone voice gives us “Light and Magic,” a hook-laden reggae bop. “Big Fish, Cold Beer,” co-written by Dennis and Alex Leist, is a straightforward rockabilly tune with a great driving beat and Crawdaddy wailing on the harp. The chatter over the end is priceless.

 

The CD rocks on with “Laidback Life” and “If Tequila Won’t Do It.” The beautiful and wistful “Back to the Boardwalk” is a soft acoustic ballad featuring Heather again. “Island Music” is full on Caribbean, shake your bottom, let’s-make-a-conga-line. “Hey oh oh-way,” the island music will carry you away, especially with Patti’s pans chiming along and the shaker percussion; a great ending to a great CD.

 

With winter coming, pick up a Little Summertime. You can pick one up at a performance near you, if you haven’t already. Go to tropicalsoul.net for more information on the CD and how you can get one for yourself and a friend.

LAVA FLOW COCKTAIL RECIPE – Ground She Moving Under Me

Posted in Boat Drinks, Island Enthusiasts, Rum | Comments Off on LAVA FLOW COCKTAIL RECIPE – Ground She Moving Under Me

After one sip, you’ll be looking for a place to hide.

To us Buffett fans you can’t hear the words Volcano or Lava without thinking of Jimmy’s classic tune “Volcano”. That was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw the recipe for a fun little drink called the LAVA FLOW.

Now my girl quickly say to me

Mon you better watch your feet

Lava come down soft and hot

You better lava me now or lava me not

Don’t those Buffett lyrics take you right to one of his concerts when you’re screaming those word out at the top of your lungs? It does me, I can’t wait to see Jimmy again next year. Fins Up!

The Lava Flow cocktail isn’t a new recipe, but it’s really not all that popular of a concoction either. Back in my college bartending days I barely remember making any, but a few definitely popped up every now and then. I remember cursing the Lava Flow order because they were a pain in the ass to make. Now that I’ve matured (debatable), I’ve learned to appreciate the complex mixology and savor the tasty drinks.

LAVA FLOW COCKTAIL RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 oz – Light Rum
  • 1 oz – Malibu Rum
  • 2 oz – Strawberries
  • 1 – Banana
  • 2 oz – Pineapple Juice
  • 2 oz – Coconut Cream

Mixing Instructions:

Blend banana, coconut cream, and pineapple juice in a blender and set aside. In the bottom of a hurricane glass, stir together both rums and strawberries. Pour banana/coconut/pineapple mix slowly into the glass. Raise glass and toast.

Enjoy the boat drink Castaways!

Cheers,

RumShopRyan

Cycling the St. Kitts Peninsula

Posted in Island Enthusiasts | Comments Off on Cycling the St. Kitts Peninsula

Hi Castaways, here is a guest post from Darryl Kotyk of LovingTheBike.com. Darryl is an island nut like us and is big into cycling, he even lived on St. Kitts for awhile. Here is Darryl’s story of biking the mountainous southern peninsula of St. Kitts.

On the South East tip of St. Kitts, West Indies is a stretch of land known as The Peninsula. A paved road was built in 1989 to make this area accessible, and it now allow people to drive along a stretch of road through untapped nature. Miles of beautiful, natural scenery. This 10KM section of road has no houses, buildings, or anything else……just total beauty (well at least it was that way when I lived there…since then it has become quite developed). The amazing view along this road is worth the drive in itself, but reaching the end is also a highlight as there is a beach restaurant there that is one of the nicest attractions in St. Kitts.

The Peninsula is made up of huge hills and valleys, which must have made building this road very difficult. The paved roads are tough enough to climb in a vehicle, so imagine the difficulty of taking them on a bike…..especially when the rider is a guy from Saskatchewan (the flattest place on Earth). For any of you readers from Saskatchewan I can best describe this road as biking up and down Mount Blackstrap (or probably higher) approximately three times, and stretching it along 10 KMs.

St. Kitts

There are very few bikers living or visiting the island who take on the challenge of The Peninsula and battle their way up and down the mountainous stretch of road…when I lived there I definitely had to learn to love it. I was raised in Saskatchewan, remember? The other roads on the island were still hilly enough for me, but I started to force myself to take on The Peninsula challenge, slowly making it more and more a part of my weekly regimen.

I can remember getting over the intimidation of the mountainous ride and how I was able to bend my head around the possibility of doing it. It’s an easy ride to give up on and say, “maybe next time”. What I did to get over it was to tell myself to just have fun with it, and that I would walk up the top half of the most difficult hills if I had to.

When I took the pressure off, something happened on that ride. It started off just as beautiful and challenging as ever. I passed monkeys playing along the side of the road. I witnessed breathtaking views of the ocean…..The Atlantic on one side and the Caribbean Sea on the other. I saw a tourist parked on the side of the road capturing the landscape on his digital camera. As I continued along this peaceful quiet of my journey along this empty path…..the scraping of the odd dried leaf on the ground making the only noise. Most of the ride was as challenging as ever, but it was the last and biggest hill that I had thoughts of getting off halfway and walking up. As I reached the hill, I started to bike up and in my mind I knew exactly where I would probably get off…..and I was okay with it. Because I took this personal pressure off myself, the climb somehow felt slightly easier. I wasn’t stressed and I was able to make it as enjoyable as it could possibly be. I kept thinking to myself that I would just get off the bike as soon as my head started to feel like it was going to explode, as it had felt in the past. That point didn’t come. It was still as hard as ever, but I was able to keep going and make it to the top.

As I happily cruised down the other side of the hill, I thought to myself how taking the pressure off enabled me to complete something I wasn’t even planning on accomplishing. It was an awakening moment and it felt good.

Sammie Mays… Feature entertainment writer, member of the Foreign Legion of Journalists and Honorary Mayor of Key West and the fabulous Florida Keys

Posted in Island Enthusiasts, Trop Rock Happenings | Comments Off on Sammie Mays… Feature entertainment writer, member of the Foreign Legion of Journalists and Honorary Mayor of Key West and the fabulous Florida Keys

After listening to the Honorary Mayor Gonzo Mays interviewing on Island Time Radio Show with DK and Amo, I thought would introduce you to her.

 

About Mayor Gonzo Mays

(The Coconut Telegraph Artist of the Month Interview)

 Most people try to break out of prison but this crazy not so demure Southerner actually broke into one!

Sammie Mays earned rank as a gonzo reporter when commissioned by the notorious editors at the National Enquirer to snag a picture of baseball’s fallen bad-boy, Pete Rose, while incarcerated in the infamous Marion, Illinois SuperMax Penitentiary. The lure of $100,000 proved too much for her to resist.

The plan only concocted after some low-life broke into Sammie’s Seaport Saloon in Pascagoula Mississippi and stole her blind.“Not just liquor, money, and beer: they stole the pool table, barstools, cash register and even the air conditioning unit!” She told the Coconut Telegraph. “Ya know I’ve always heard that a bad artist borrows and a good artist steals; I wonder what they named their new bar?”

Sammie’s Saloon was the only bar in the county deemed resort status which meant she was licensed to stay open after all other bars shut down at 2am.

A twenty-four hour hell raising honky tonk, it was the location where Jimmy Buffett played to his first audience (refer to his song Pascagoula Run).

“Jimmy’s one-legged Uncle Billy Buffett – a regular at the bar – struck a deal for his underage nephew to sweep and mop spilled swill from the floor in exchange for stage time. Clever Uncle Bill drank for free.”

The burglary left Sammie flat busted and desperate for a quick fix. She weighed her options and briefly considered posing nude for Hustler but instead she took the high road and posed as a musician, hiding two identical 35 millimeter cameras inside a busted speaker cabinet and sweet talked the warden and herself right into, at the time, the Nation’s toughest penitentiary. It was literally through hook and crook that she managed to score the coveted $100,000 picture of Pete Rose in the Pokey!

Striking the media match, the next day the National Enquirer’s marketing gurus leaked word of the beer slinging reporters’ espionage operation to the AP and before being relieved of his duties the warden issued this final statement to the press, “Where she’s going she’s not going to be able to spend that money.”

Tipped off by reading the daily news, Sammie began to fear for her own freedom and went underground. Long story short when the smoke cleared her Pete in the pokey photo had been named by Sports Illustrated as Best of Year. When she finally thought it was safe to come out of hiding her tabloid peers began referring to their newest celebrity reporter as the Gonz.

When I read the story I Shot Pete Rose in the tabloids and then saw “Tabloid” the television pilot, I began hearing rumors of a screenplay being written by the “Of Mice and Men” screenwriters.  

The Gonz homeport is Key West, Florida where she hails as the honorary Mayor Gonzo Mays “overtly giving out as many political favors as humanly possible and accepting all bribes no matter how insignificant.” Now that’s an honest mayor! 

Sammie tired of the yellow journalism gig and of all “the bull$#it” and crazy Hollywood celebrities who believed their own press, however you can still read the adventures of Mayor Gonzo most every month in The Parrot Entertainment Magazine or online www.swflparrot.com. You might also catch glimpses of her on Comcast tourist television 5 or bellied up to an island bar holding court – just look for the straw hat, sunglasses and cigar – even at night!

“Living in the islands and writing sorted adventures and drunken tales of characters I encounter sure beats the hell out of working for Southern Bride Magazine.” The famous writer and photojournalist tells us. According to Mayor Gonzo “nothing but nothing is as bad or as painful as that gig with the bridal magazine. To this day I hate pink chiffon!”

When we ask the Gonz about her 1982 arrest on corruption charges resulting in her being deported from the island of Saint Maarten (yet another entertaining adventure) she claimed she was only trying to help educate the poor islanders and that “that night the law was just pissed off that they missed intercepting a load of Jamaican lamb’s bread that was being distributed across the island.”

Miraculously Mayor Gonzo is a survivor of two direct hit Category 5 hurricanes (Camille and Katrina) and thus far has managed to dodge a death threat from her old editor in chief at the National Enquirer.

Sammie Mays is like no one you’ll ever encounter. When she showed up for our interview in Key Largo at the Pilot House Glass Bottom Bar her presence was undeniable. She strolled in chomping on a Cuban cigar and offered me one; I politely declined and she said, “Well why not? You probably smoke everything else!”

When asked what brought her to the Florida Keys Sammie blamed it on “that smugglin’, gun runnin’, womanizin’, Captain Tony Tarracino.” And then she quickly added “that it was as good a place as any to lay low while the National Enquirer got over being pissed off at me.” 

When the Coconut Telegraph asked the Gonz what she had planned to do next, without hesitating she said, “Not a damn thing but sit here and have another cold one!” However, to be more accurate, we believe she had more than one but who’s counting?

Reggae Artist Niyorah, No Guts No Glory Official Music Video

Posted in Island Enthusiasts, Rum | Comments Off on Reggae Artist Niyorah, No Guts No Glory Official Music Video

NiyoRah is an up-and-coming Dominican-born, St. Thomas-raised artist who you may have heard as part of the Star Lion Family (heard on the compilation Talkin’ Roots Volume 1, amongst other albums). I stumbled on to his video over the weekend and it instantly caught my eye. It has a great message about peace, love and self improvement. Doesn’t most reggae convey those ideas?

Niyorah stands out from the mass of sing-jays out there with not only his expressive vocals, but also his ability to sing, chat, and even rap a bit (Purists should know that the rapping is kept to a minimum, though.). His lyrics are likewise unique and insightful. This video of “No Guts No Glory” is beautifully produced and the song is soulful and catchy.

No Guts No Glory Music Video by Niyorah

What do you think?

Bio

Nigel “NiyoRah” Olivacce was born on October 9, 1980 in the coastline village of Pointe Michel, Dominica. At age 4, he moved to St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, with his family, and cultivated an interest in music through listening to artists in his father’s and uncle’s roots reggae collections, including Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer, Burning Spear and Lucky Dube. By age 16, NiyoRah began chanting on the streets about the life experiences of the Savan ghetto in downtown Charlotte Amalie.

At age 18, NiyoRah decided to pursue a career in reggae music. “Reggae had one of the greatest influences on my life. It’s the type of music I cling to for some mystical reason,” he says. “The most high guided me more than me myself.” He took on the name NiyoRah – a combination of his nickname growing up and out of respect for the omnipotent power of the sun. Music was a natural career choice because of his musically gifted family. His grandfather is an award-winning vocalist who sings Negro spirituals and gospel, while his aunt, Ophelia Olivacce Marie, is an international French-speaking artist heralded as “Dominica’s Songbird” for her style of cadence and calypso. In 1998, he was introduced by local reggae radio personality Ras Manny to Black Juice Records, a Virgin Islands-based recording company. He joined with six other reggae artists under the company to co-found Star Lion Family. His voice can be heard on Star Lion Family’s EP “Brighter Days” released in November 2003.

NiyoRah’s songs delve into a wide range of issues, including cultural living, love for nature, strengthening of all peoples, especially Africans, and spiritual growth. In concert, NiyoRah has performed in front of thousands, sharing the same stage with world renowned artists such as Sizzla, Capleton, Junior Reid, Buju Banton, Bunny Wailer, Glen Washington, Midnite Band, Junior Kelly, Marcia Griffiths, Eve, Erika Badu, and many others.

NiyoRah’s albums, “A Different Age” (May 2005), “Purification Session” (June 2006) and “Stolen scrolls” (June 2008), were all released under one of the Virgin Island’s top reggae labels, I Grade Records. His newly awaited and anticipated album, ” Feel Your Presence” is scheduled for release in June 2010 under his new record label Denkenesh Records, which was produced in the island of Jamaica during 2009. The album will feature the dynamic Jah Mason on the track entitled “Bruk Down Barrier” and the legendary Sugar Minott on the track entitled “World Jungle”.

Since the release of his first album, Niyorah has toured/performed on the east and west coast of the U.S., Hawaii, Venezuela, Guam and various Caribbean Islands. He has performed in front of thousands at festivals/events such as the World Social Forum, Reggae Rising, Baltimore African American Heritage Music festival and the Sierra Nevada World Music festival to name a few. With his experience and relentless approach to the stage, he is definitely a a spectacle to watch live with his band, the Jah Current band.

Cheers,

Margaritaville Reclaims Record for Largest Margarita

Posted in Boat Drinks, Island Enthusiasts, Trop Rock Artists, Trop Rock Happenings | Comments Off on Margaritaville Reclaims Record for Largest Margarita

From MarketWatch.com: “Margaritaville Las Vegas Reclaimed the Guinness World Record for The Largest Margarita Ever Made

On Oct. 14th at 5 O’clock in the evening Margaritaville broke the World Record for the largest margarita ever made as verified by Guinness World Records. The event was part of the Grand Opening festivities for the new Margaritaville Casino at Flamingo in Las Vegas.

Halfway through the ceremony celebrating the new World Record, Jimmy Buffett surprised fans by coming out and raising a glass of Lucky Rita with the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team along with Flamingo’s Rick Mazer and Margaritaville’s Tamara Baldanza in front of more than 1,000 Parrotheads and onlookers.

“Much appreciation for these great wounded warriors, who I’ve worked with for a long time. Gentleman, thank you for coming out. We’re going to have a good time this weekend. Let the FIN begin,” said Buffett.

Some photos of the celebration are now available in our Photo Gallery (photos courtesy Scott Harrison)
