Beach Bar Playlist: Keith Sykes – “Come As You Are Beach Bar”

Tagged: , , , , ,

Anytime a tune debuts and includes the words “beach bar,” it’s going to grab my attention. “Come As You Are Beach Bar,” the latest ditty from Keith Sykes, has received positive feedback after appearing in the rotation at Radio Margaritaville, even warranting a tweet shout out from Radio M’ville’s JD Spradlin as it topped the Trop Rock charts this week at Radio A1A. Mr. Sykes isn’t a stranger to the trop rock scene, having written...

12 Songs to Make Your Christmas a Little More Tropical

Tagged: , ,

With temperatures in my hometown scheduled to be in the mid 50s Christmas day (about 30 degrees higher than normal), the fact that I’m not celebrating my favorite holiday of the year on an island in the Caribbean becomes a little bit easier to bear. Still, it’s not Christmas in the Caribbean and while I love a white Christmas as much as anyone else, white sand would be a suitable substitute for the fluffy stuff. While the multitude of...

Tagged: , , , , , ,

I’m always on the lookout for great tunes to add to my beach bar playlist. After all, there are only so many Chesney, Buffett and Marley songs you can play. So when I came across “Rum is the Reason” by Toby Keith, from his newest album, “35 mph Town,” and heard the sweet sounds of steelpan coming at me, I knew I had another spot on my playlist filled. The tune has that lilting rhythmic island swing to it that gently lulls you into a...

Beach Bar Playlist: Ed Waters Music ft. Nick Nicholson – Countin’ Down To Sunset

Tagged: , , ,

I received a message from Ed Waters regarding his new song featuring Nick Nicholson, “Countin’ Down To Sunset,” and since the tune seemed custom made for a beach bar playlist, I decided it would be a good ideal to share it with all of you. Who knows, maybe it’ll end up in between all those Kenny Chesney and Jimmy Buffet songs somewhere. I think it’s worth a spot – what about you? Like any good song, there’s a...

Little Big Town Releases New Video For “Pain Killer”

Tagged: , , , , , , ,

Little Big Town has released the video for “Pain Killer,” which was filmed, appropriately enough, at the birth of the famous cocktail, the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands. Cleverly managing to take the name of a famous cocktail and turning it into an ode to an actual human being as their real life “pain killer,” the video also showcases everything we love about beach bars, mainly...

Bankie Banx Performing With Special Guest at the Dune Preserve

Tagged: , , , ,

I can think of few better ways to spend my time than listening to music while on the beach and when you visit the Dune Preserve Beach Bar in Anguilla, it’s pretty much a given that it’s going to happen at some point. Its owner, Bankie Banx, has been a part of the reggae scene for decades and his beach bar is the annual host of Moonsplash, an annual music festival that takes place in March. You’ll often find Bankie...
