There’s very few places offering dinner with live entertainment in Bermuda and even fewer that boast some of the most spectacular views of Hamilton Harbour in the City of Hamilton, whether it’s day or night.
As quiet as it’s kept, there’s another vibe generating quite a following of fans that’s growing, who are joining hotel guests for dinner and live entertainment on Thursday nights at Marcus’ at Hamilton Princess & Beach Club.
It comes with soothing tones in the form of three letters – DIA – Devil’s Isles Audio, a stand-alone group of artists, including DIA’s Music Director/Founder Derek G Simmons on Bass, Co-Founder Scarlet Thomas on Drums, Tino on Tenor Sax, the group’s Assistant Music Director, Leroy Francis on Keys, Dino Richol on Guitar and Kofi on Guitar.
After a first-time run last year, the hotel’s General Manager Tim Morrison said the city hotel “is proud to support local artists, businesses and farmers”.
“Our Made in Bermuda and Reggae Nights at Marcus’ are a perfect example of our commitment to this and are a great way for locals and guests alike to unwind,” he added.
Asked for the reasoning behind the band’s name, he replied: “That’s a funny story actually.
The hotel also offers live music at Crown & Anchor and at the Beach Club. But if you haven’t seen DIA Band live yet, you might want to make plans.
For dinner and live music, nothing beats the sultry sounds of DIA backed by top notch service and a great meal.
All that backed songs like ‘Sweetest Taboo’ by Sade and ‘On & On’ by Erykah Badu with Tino on Sax, with a tight group on bass, keys and bass, who could ask for anything more! They even threw in a bit of vintage reggae music by Burning Spear.
A bit pricey yes! But this diehard ‘Foodie’ will most definitely go back to do it all over again!
