Being a drummer for 60 years , wife and I miss all of the oldies music that used to be at a lot of clubs around st Maarten.
Really nothing like that anymore. Maybe just getting old but miss Bob Craig and a lot of the other bands that use to play at the clubs.
Oh well I guess that is just a thing of the past..
Seems everything now is just reggae music 🥱

It's a shame, the clubs are catering to the "house" music!!! We would change our evening plans to go see Dave Morris. Who would play for three hours straight. From Floyd to the Beatles. He told me, he can't get work on the island. There was a time where he would be booked from October to April and go back to France, Nice and play those gigs! As you said, we to, a lot older and burning the midnight hour isn't at the top of the list anymore! LOL!!!


Sand Gravity, got to love it!

Bob Craig and Bob Barron are one and the same. He sings all over

Unfortunately time passes on, in twenty years people will be posting "where can I go to listen to 90's music?" Then in 30 years it will be "doesn't anyone play house music anymore?"

Years ago we saw a great reggae band (yes, with electric guitars, keyboards and a drummer) at Kim Shaw beach. This was before Roxy took over and demolished the small bar. Craig used the same band and musicians at this beach bar on another night. The next best band we saw was at the original Karraters. It was a great guitar player and a drummer/ keyboard player. Don’t remember his name but they were very talented. Probably the best act we saw was quite awhile ago at some Tex mex restaurant in Simpson Bay. It was two young guys, one on guitar and the other playing big bongo drums. The funny thing about them, the music they played was all ‘60’s and early ‘70’s. Songs you would hear on AM radio. When the locals came in on this Friday night, they removed all glass containers from the tables and replaced them with plastic. The crowd went crazy dancing and loving the music.

Remember when Ian played at the buccaneer beach bar, played with his band a lot. Unfortunately he passed away years ago.
Played at sunset beach bar when Neil owned it. Played at so many places across the island with rock and roll bands.
Guess I’m going back too many years.
Must be getting old 🫣

Used to walk tp to the French drummer that played with Bob and would take over drumming in the middle of a song and it may be 2 or 3 songs before they knew we switched drummers. 😀😀😀
