We really wanted to bring an artistic act that reflected our music and the island, so it wasn’t even a thought – it had to be Orange Grove. They have spent so much time here on St. Maarten, much of it at the Island 92 studios by the way, that we have sort of adopted them. We made the call to them and they were ecstatic, they loved the idea of a big concert at Porto Cupecoy to celebrate our anniversary”.”
Michael Maidwell, lead singer of Orange Grove noted, “Well it’s an honor to be invited as the headline act for Island 92’s 10th anniversary party in St. Maarten. We have played throughout the Caribbean and all over the world, but to be back on St. Maarten, it’s home to us. We really look forward to rocking out at Porto Cupecoy this June and we want to let all our fans know well in advance, you want to get to this show because it’s going to be EPIC, we are going to pull out all the stops and it will be the best show of the year!”!”
Richard Seay, the Director of Sales for Porto Cupecoy added, “We have been working with Island 92 since the opening of Porto Cupecoy and we all love Orange Grove, so when an opportunity arose for us to host the anniversary concert, we jumped at the chance. It is, and always has been our endeavor to support and work with artists of all kinds on St. Maarten to enhance the culture and quality of life for residents and visitors to our amazing island home. We wish Island 92 a hearty congratulations and can’t wait to see everyone at the Orange Grove concert this June”.
