A FLOCK OF SINGULLS
ISLAND 92 RADIO WELCOMES A FLOCK OF SEAGULLS’ DRUMMER MICHEAL BRAHM AND HIS ‘80’s NEW WAVE TRIBUTE BAND, A FLOCK OF SINGULLS, FOR A FREE CONCERT EVENT AT MARY’S BOON BEACH RESORT.
SIMPSON BAY, ST. MAARTEN, DUTCH CARIBBEAN – July 4, 2013 – Island 92 Radio today announced a FREE concert event on Saturday, July 6th, at Mary’s Boon Beach Resort, featuring ‘80’s New Wave tribute band “A Flock Of Singulls”. The band is headed up by 80’s icon “A Flock Of Seagulls” drummer Michael Brahm. The concert starts at 3PM with opening act, our own Gianfranco and Timmy followed by a tribute to the BIG ‘80’s’ New Wave hits by groups such as: Duran Duran, Simple Minds, New Order, INXS, Depeche Mode, The Fixx, Tears For Fears, A Flock Of Seagulls, and many more.
Drummer Michael Brahm of A Flock Of Singulls and A Flock of Seagulls stated, “We’re really looking forward to bringing all the great iconic 80’s music back, for one very special LIVE concert on St. Maarten. It’s amazing that almost 30 years have passed and yet the music has remained a constant, a touchstone for people to enjoy, bringing back great memories and allowing us to make new ones. The fact is that even the younger generations are gravitating toward the hits of the 80’s. It was a very special time for music, there was an immense convergence where rock, disco, metal and punk all sort of met up trying to find an identity and somehow New Wave emerged, it was fresh, experimental, different, and extremely emotive. With the advent of MTV it caught on like wildfire and has remained a resounding force ever since. It’s our greatest pleasure to get up there on stage and make what was once vinyl and tape a real thing for our audience”.
Dr. SOC (Jeff Sochrin), Island 92’s Fresh Air in the Morning Host, concurred, “We couldn’t be more excited to have Michael Brahm and “A Flock Of Singulls” here for an unbelievable concert on the beach. If I had to sum it up, it’s like this, our listeners are the best, here on St. Maarten and in more than 60 countries around the world. We want to show our listeners how much we appreciate their dedication, all year, day in-day out, they are there, and a great free concert on the beach is the best way we know of to say thanks. We are nothing without our listeners – so all this is just for them! At Island 92 Radio we are “Rock, Blues and Good Time Music” – and a large component of all three categories happens to fall in the 1980’s and in the New Wave movement. What Michael Brahm and his “A Flock Of Singulls” brings to us is basically the best of the decade, and done with great cachet and aplomb by one of the lead guys from what I feel is the epitome of the 80’s New Wave groups, A Flock Of Seagulls. This is going to be a fun afternoon and great beach party, top-line music, beautiful venue and of course our amazing fans. What more could you ask for? We look forward to seeing you all at the concert!”. Soc went on to say, “ None of this could be possible without a great set of sponsors. They make it happen and for this we are eternally grateful. This beach party and concert is sponsored
by UTS/Chippie, Budweiser, Mary’s Boon Beach Resort, USAVE Car Rental, Satori Beach Bar and Lounge, Panlaan – Thai on the Bay and Island 92. Thank you to each sponsor who has contributed in their own special way to make this the place to be on July 6th. Don’t miss it!”.
