Island rockers Orange Sky celebrated its 25 years as a musical unit with an delightful concert that was streamed virtually via Facebook, Instagram and YouTube locally, and to fans in the US, UK, Canada and St Lucia.
During the anniversary concert, fans showed love and appreciation for the musical stylings of Orange Sky’s members Nigel Rojas, Nicholas Rojas, Dax Cartar and Dion Camacho, said a media release from Sonique Solutions. The band took viewers on a nostalgic journey with some of its classic musical gems which include Alone, Escape, Real Love, Beautiful Day and Vitamin G. The event was sponsored by Carib Brewery.
In honour of the milestone and as a special treat to its long-time supporters, Orange Sky curated a special compilation of its hit songs and fan favourites from the last 25 years and seven albums, dubbed The Best of Orange Sky 25th Anniversary. The compilation is available to the public.
At the March 27 virtual show, Orange Sky previewed its upcoming album entitled Strange Days and performed a few new tracks from it, such as Free, Pick It Up and Crazy, the release said.
Strange Days, which was written during the covid19 pandemic, is due for release in June 2021 and is described as hard-hitting music for everyone.
Of the new album, lead vocalist and guitarist Rojas said in the release, "It’s us going back to our rock roots while paying respect to the masters. So expect some no apologies, bare-knuckled rock and roll, in our signature Orange Sky-style of course. Strange Days was written in heavy times and so it’s heavy, spirited, vociferous and is best played loud!"
Rojas also expressed gratitude to all who championed the band over the years and for the anniversary event."We want to thank our friends, fans for the love and support throughout the years and especially those who are still here today...We love you! Very special thanks to Carib Beer for making this dream for us and our fans become a reality as well as Splice Studios, Bassyard, North Eleven Productions, Alan Tia Sounds, Eclipse Audio, Sonique Solutions, Apex Advertising, Benny Hatem, The Lollabee Group, Subway, Burger King and No Exhale."
