On September 10, 2014, Concert Drive visited the great University of Houston to give us a live performance at the Lynn Eusan Park. People were lured into the concert by the Bajan style music where they sat on blankets and were happily eaten by mosquitoes.
The smell of OFF was thick in the air as T-Ray (a.k.a. Chocolate Thunder to the ladies), opened up the show sitting on his cajon (drum instrument) by introducing his fellow band members. Four friends from Barbados, four years ago, made their fame on Youtube making covers. The lead vocalists, Amanda Reifer, the guitarist/keyist , Barry, the drummer/backing vocalist, T-Ray, and the bass guitarist, Jamar, are now performing their own original songs on the grande stage.
The first song performed was a cover mix of Bruno Mars’ “Treasure” and “Locked Out of Heaven.” This was a nice warm-up for the crowd and an amazing introduction to the groups style for those listeners that had not heard the group before that concert.
