ANTHONY BRIGHTLY

It started from primary school, at the age of 9 my mum bought me an organ, and then I joined a band.  Back in those days, everything was very community based, in our area, there was bands, musicians etc.  One day, a friend of mine who lived in our road said there’s a group starting off, (the Jackson 5 who were around those days).  Everyone wanted to be the Jackson 5. The band needed an organists.  We were all young at the time, the oldest was around 15.  So with that we had a group called Mysteron 5.  We did all the Motown stuff with a little reggae here and there.  That lasted for about two years.

LADY SPICE

That’s how Sharon aka LadySpice describes herself as a DJ.  With over 10 year’s experience, she is never afraid to go too deep, her emotive, musical selections are her own therapy.  Having grown up on her family's eclectic combination of funk, Soul, R’n’B, Reggae, Roots, Soca, Dancehall, and Pop music Sharon ended up with quite a mixed spectrum of musical influences.  Today, this translates into sets where she infuses together all the pieces of this music that she loves best.

Friday night was party time, and on the same road that we lived was a house party (shubeen) Dad’s destination, and of course, his selection of music went with him!
