Tapas On The Bay in Rodney Bay is a venue that promotes music, with a particular interest in saxophone players. It’s a great spot to be on a Friday evening to enjoy live entertainment with a drink and a meal.

Here are some of the artists you can expect to see.

Isman Lovence

Isman has a head for figures (he has a degree in economics and accounts) and a soul that is expressed through his love of the saxophone. He studied at the Saint Lucia School of Music and has been part of several bands, pleasing locals and visitors. “I’ve had the privilege of doing a series of performances at Tapas On The Bay. Being able to entertain so many different faces has been an exciting experience; it has forced me to be diverse, given the different age groups coming in, and has helped me be a better entertainer.”

Rob Zii Taylor

Rob was a student of Barbara Cadet (see page 38) and, like her, is now a versatile alto, soprano and tenor saxophonist. He performs at Tapas On The Bay on alternate Fridays, accompanied by songstress Phyness. With music genres spanning Jazz, Soul, Reggae and Blues, they have developed an enthusiastic following. TT recommends that you listen to their music to find out why this couple is so popular.

Rashaad Joseph

Rashaad is still a teenager, not that you would guess from his mature style of playing the saxophone. His music focuses on genres such as Jazz, R&B, Hip hop and Soul Music.  “My favourite part about performing at Tapas is playing my unreleased music for the new faces that I get to see, and seeing how positively the people react.

It’s always fun, easy-going and filled with energy and a love for live music.”

Deland ‘DeeSax’ St Jules

‘Deesax’ plays saxaphone, flute and bassoon. His style engages you so much that you would not guess that he has distinguished himself in another arena: he’s attained the rank of inspector in the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force! In his musical career he has played at various hotels, for the RSLPF’s superb band and, naturally, has shared stages with Barbara Cadet. Let’s just say that his music is arresting!

Every Friday night from 7pm is a live music experience at Tapas On The Bay. TT recommends it as a perfect way to round off the week with great food and superb music.
