I’ve written about Texas artist, Kelly McGuire a few times in my blog. He is now visiting San Pedro 2 – 3 times a year and February is his biggest set of shows. 1. Because it’s one of the busiest months on the island. Just look at the crowd that he drew last night…
And 2. because it’s his BIRTHDAY and he always does a big birthday bash on Ambergris Caye.
I arrived early for the 6pm show. A good 15 minutes early (which in Belize is like arriving the day before) and saw Kelly unloading his equipment from a taxi. This guy needs roadies!
I caught up with Kelly and Brian, the General Manager of Fido’s, while they were setting up.
The crowd was in an excellent mood and the crew sitting at the bar cleared a spot and pulled up two stools for me and my friend Twilla. We were surrounded by fun, lovely people. Met some new friends for sure.
The bar crew & staff were hard at work. Here’s my buddy Chris behind the bar looking all sheepish. If I was this good looking? I’d never wear a shirt AND be posing for pictures left and right.
Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful.
People were sitting at first…
And then the dancing started…this awesome couple started it off…
Oh yes! I also forgot to mention that it wasn’t just Kelly last night. Amauris, who lives in San Pedro but is originally from Cuba, is an AMAZING guitarist. Even Kelly, I think, was seriously impressed. I’m not sure how he makes his fingers move that fast.
It all should be VERY good times.
For all the information on Kelly, check out his website Red Fish Island. And see you there for sure.
