Roots moonlights in Tunapuna
For the past five years Pelham Goddard and Roots have been performing Under The Trees, at The Normandie in St Ann’s during their Carnival events schedule. Over the last six months, the band has produced the Caribbean Night at D’ Nu Pub programme that has been a resounding success.
Roots has some of the most experienced musicians and an enviable track record of soca hits and road marches over the years.
The aggregation is now ready for the road again with two young lead singers Moricia Cagan and Nigel O’Connor.
Roots has begun preparations for 2014 Carnival, and is in the studio laying down tracks for new releases.
At the helm of Roots since the mid-’70s, Goddard is one of a kind, achieving musical heights very few have. This St James resident can be regarded as “the music man” behind the successes of many a Road March and national calypso monarch champion, including the late Maestro, Calypso Rose, SuperBlue (Blue Boy), David Rudder and Christopher “Tambu” Herbert.
His band has survived the passage of time and is widely regarded as the number one soca band in the world.
On November 2 the Roots family goes east to The Moonlighting Pub, Eastern Main Road, Tunapuna for the Light Up in White production at which the band will perform a mixture of past and present musical hits.
