The Wave 94.5 and ti­tle spon­sor Dig­i­cel will on Fri­day July 25, 2016 once again un­ravel the undis­puted Monarch of all Car­ni­val fetes here in Saint Lu­cia – “Out­ra­geous Sexy in Black! For the past sev­eral years The Wave has de­clared Car­ni­val Fri­day the day to be sexy, bold and dar­ing and to let go of all in­hi­bi­tions. This is more than a fete, it is car­ni­val ex­pe­ri­ence that the or­ga­niz­ers dare you to share and be­hold.

For “Out­ra­geous Sexy in Black 2016”, three big soca bands headed by Soca mae­stros will grace the stage at the Gai­ety Grounds on Fri­day July 15 2016, as well as a slew of Saint Lu­cian and re­gional Soca acts. This week, 2Nite Mag­a­zine spot­lights the first of these three bands.

Kes the band: It does not get any sex­ier and no Soca voice sweeter than that of Kees Diefen­thaller the man lead­ing the group Kes the band. And this year they are do­ing it for all their “peo­ple” once again.

Formed in Trinidad in 2005 the group’s mu­si­cal style con­sists pri­mar­ily of soca, in­flu­enced by ca­lypso, dance­hall and reg­gae, with tinges of pop and rock. The band con­sists of found­ing mem­bers Kees Di­ef­fen­thaller (lead vo­cals) brothers Hans Di­ef­fen­thaller (drums) and Jon Di­ef­fen­thaller (gui­tar) as well as Riad Boo­choon (bass gui­tar). Noted for high en­ergy live per­for­mances and the soul­ful voice of lead singer Kees, the group has cap­tured the hearts of many and is now one of the most pop­u­lar and sought af­ter bands in the Caribbean and North Amer­ica.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the band has won nu­mer­ous awards for song­writ­ing; toured glob­ally, per­formed at ma­jor fes­ti­vals and events through­out the Caribbean, the United States and Ger­many; opened for acts such as Sean Paul, Musiq Soul Child, Usher, John Le­gend, and Ri­hanna; and had their mu­sic fea­tured on tele­vi­sion shows broad­cast on MTV and BET, as well as li­censed tracks to pop­u­lar games on ma­jor video game plat­forms.

Among the bands more re­cent hits – Wot­less (2011), Tues­day on the Rocks (2013), Look Fuh Dat and End­less Sum­mer (2014), Fallin (2015) and Peo­ple (2016).

Ex­pect pure en­ergy, fun and ex­cite­ment from Kes the Band for the 2016 edi­tion of Out­ra­geous Sexy in Black. Reg­u­lar and VIP tick­ets now avail­able. See you there!
