Many exciting changes have been implemented this year for the 35th St.Maarten Heineken Regatta, and one of those will be the Saturday night party, which will take place on Kim Sha Beach in Simpson Bay. This evening promises to be a night filled with undeniable sex appeal and a line up that boasts not one but two powerful female performers. Asher Otto, from Antigua will perform onstage at 8:00pm with her well known band Itchy Feet. This winning combination will make sure to get the crowd jumping with a variety of music from rock, reggae, soca, pop and folk and make it a true Caribbean Jam.
Asher Otto was born and raised in Antigua and began her singing career at the tender age of four. Influenced by musicians such as Alicia Keys and Erica Badu, Asher has developed into a soulful artist who draws you in and keeps your head filled with the soothing sounds of her voice. Her stunning looks and smooth vocals make for a stunning combination. Can’t wait till Saturday the 7th? Please click here to get in the mood now.
Itchy Feet was established in 2006 and quickly became a household name in and around Antigua. They have performed at many different events across the Caribbean and have opened for Maxi Priest. In 2011 Asher joined the band and the rest they say is “history”. The band is comprised of five members. Paddy Prendergast on guitar, keys and vocals while Tony Mayers plays bass. Jocelyn Beldman comes in on the keys as well as vocals and Darron Jonas plays the drums. Main vocals are sung by Asher Otto and together this group of five extremely talented musicians brings an infectious vibe to the stage.
Asher Otto & Itchy Feet will be bringing you hits like Daft Punks-Get Lucky, and many of your favourite songs, but of course with their own “island style” twist and completely in style with the theme of the evening ‘Caribbean Jam’. Their ability to put their own mark on popular songs is what makes them so much fun to listen too.
Finally on Saturday March 7th, once Asher Otto & Itchy Feet finish their performance, the stage will again be lit up with another Caribbean powerhouse, Tessanne Chin. Making it a double impact of leading, sultry Caribbean women who will most certainly bring their powerful vocals to the main stage.
